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.

We haven’t really heard or seen much from Scott Stewart‘s Priest since the set visit video that aired during the Canadian version of Entertainment Tonight in March (watch it here). Over the weekend, the first production photo featuring Paul Bettany was released online (discovered by BloodyDisgusting). See the full image after the jump.

The film Margin Call, essentially sounding like a dramatization of our recent economic crisis, has come together very fast. We first heard about it at Cannes, when sophomore writer/director J.C. Chandor and his producers lined up Kevin Spacey and Zachary Quinto as part of the cast. (Quinto is one of the producers, so he lined himself up, technically speaking.) Now we’ve got many more names, including Demi Moore, Paul Bettany and Simon Baker. Read More »
The Tourist, the romantic thriller starring Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie that remakes the French film Anthony Zimmer, has been shooting for a while after taking a very long and winding road to set. Now director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck (The Lives of Others) has two new actors to work with: Paul Bettany and Rufus Sewell. We don’t know their roles at this point, but this is slowly looking less like an over-cooked studio disaster. [Variety]
After the break, Amanda Seyfried and others join the already impressive cast of Albert Nobbs, while Emma Stone could join Steve Carell on screen. Read More »

When Creation played Toronto to largely dismissive reviews, the film’s producer attempted to drum up interest by manufacturing controversy. He claimed that the film wasn’t finding distribution in the US because of active Christian resistance to a film about Charles Darwin. So there’s no small irony to the fact that it has now been picked up for US distribution by Newmarket Films, the distributor of The Passion of the Christ. Read More »
Today we’ve got a bounty of info on the upcoming Sony action/horror film Legion, starring Paul Bettany, Dennis Quaid and Adrianne Palicki, written and directed by Scott Stewart, founder of acclaimed effects company The Orphanage. We’ve got two exclusive new stills, and I spoke to Stewart last night to get some backstory on the movie. Finally, the red band trailer that Sony showed off at Comic Con two weeks ago is online, and you can see it after the jump. Read More »

Director Scott Stewart describes his film Legion as “angels with machine guns.” Having seen the footage premiered today by Sony in Hall H, I’d say that’s a pretty damn good way to sum it up. We haven’t known much about the film, which stars Paul Bettany, Tyrese Gibson, Doug Jones, Kevin Durand, Adrianne Palicki, Charles S. Dutton and Dennis Quaid. That’s a hell of a cast, and the early art we’ve seen is certainly suggestive. Seeing the footage, I’ve been thinking of some combination of the Christopher Walken Prophecy and a film like Project Terror. More on the footage and the film after the break. Read More »
