We’ve seen one trailer for Scott Stewart‘s Priest, which adapts the Korean comic of the same name and reunites the director with his Legion star Paul Bettany. The film was once delayed a bit and was post-converted to 3D, but will hit theaters on May 13. Now there’s a second trailer that uses a lot of the same elements as the first, but manages to make the story seem a lot more messy and incomprehensible. Read More »

One of the top 10 screenplays listed on The Black List this year was a script by JC Chandor titled Margin Call. The film, which is set to premiere at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, is “Based on true events,” and chronicles the final twenty-four hours of Lehman Brothers. The movie is set to premiere at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival with Chandor at the helm and starring Kevin Spacey, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Irons, Stanley Tucci, and Demi Moore. I always love dramatic thrillers set in an isolated amount of time or one location, and this film seems to fit both categories. See more photos from the film in our previous preview posting, and hit the jump to see the full one-sheet.

One of the top 10 screenplays listed on The Black List this year was a script by JC Chandor titled Margin Call.
While I often refer to The Black List as a annual list of the best unproduced screenplays in Hollywood, that isn’t actually the case — the list is compiled with a poll of 300 development executives and high-level assistants, and contains a ranking of the hot screenplays making the rounds in Hollywoodland, which were written in, or are somehow uniquely associated with, 2010 and will not be released in theaters during this calendar year. Basically, the black list contains the hottest projects in Hollywood that you haven’t heard of yet. Some of the screenplays have been acquired and some are even in production. Margin Call was actually in the can before the list was even released.

I’m half amazed that cameras even managed to roll on The Tourist, much less that there is now a trailer. The film, which was finally directed by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck with Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp plus co-stars Paul Bettany, Rufus Sewell and Timothy Dalton, took so long to come together, with so many cast and director changes, that this trailer is proof of just how single-minded the Hollywood machine can be, when it wants to. Plus, it’s entertaining in a fluff sort of way. Read More »
We’ve presented the trailer for Scott Stewart and Paul Bettany‘s Priest, their follow-up to Legion, once before. But that was a not-quite-official trailer release that was soon pulled. Now Sony has really released the clip, and you can check it out to see just how WTF this particular genre exercise really looks. Think of a midpoint between Underworld and Judge Dredd and you’ll probably have the right tone in mind. Read More »
Attempting to describe the trailer for Priest proved near impossible following its premiere at Comic-Con, but the good news for you guys is that now I don’t have to. Sony Pictures has released the film’s official trailer online, which shows off the film in all its apocalyptic, futuristic, monster-infused glory. Check it out after the break. Read More »
After discovering that Priest—which stars Paul Bettany as a priest who disobeys church law to track down the vampires who kidnapped his niece—was being directed by Scott Charles Stewart, the man behind this year’s disastrously lame Legion, my interest in the project immediately dissipated (cool publicity photos be damned).
Having now seen the film’s trailer, I’ve moved up my level of anticipation to: “We’ll see.”
Learn why after the break. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Screen Gems has provided us with five exclusive photos from Scott Stewart‘s action/horror/thriller Priest, which stars Paul Bettany as a priest who disobeys church law to track down the vampires who kidnapped his niece.
Stewart comes from a special effects background, working on films such as Sin City, Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire, and Iron Man, among many others. He made his directorial debut with Legion, which I still haven’t seen but heard not-so-great things about.
I will say this, the images we’ve received (which you can see after the jump) look bad ass. I’m sure we’ll get to see the first trailer during Sony’s panel at Comic-Con (update: I’ve been told that a First Look of Priest in 3D will be part of the presentation), and it will likely be online soon after. Hit the jump to see the photos.
