When discussing the movies set for release this summer, one that’s been largely overlooked – especially being as it’s a comic book adaptation – is Priest. Directed by Scott Stewart, the film stars Paul Bettany as a warrior priest who must break his beliefs to help save his niece from a pack of vampires. He’ll take the ride along with Cam Gigandet, Maggie Q, Karl Urban and Lily Collins.
This latest trailer is actually shorter than both the previous theatrical trailer and teaser trailer, but is way more action and effects heavy. Priest will be released in 3D on May 13. Check it out the final trailer after the jump. Read More »
If you found the first few glimpses of Scott Stewart‘s Priest to be confusing — and I wouldn’t blame you, that last trailer was pretty “huh?”-worthy — here’s something that might help. Animator Genndy Tartakovsky (Samurai Jack, Dexter’s Laboratory) has created a three-minute animated prequel to the film that explains some of the setup and gives a taste of what kind of tone we can expect from the movie. Watch it after the jump.
Here is a compilation of some of the movie commercials which have aired during the Super Bowl so far. The movies include: Fast Five, Priest, Just Go With It, Limitless, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Rio, and The Eagle. Hit the jump to watch now.

We won’t know until this Sunday which two teams will be playing in Super Bowl XLV on February 6 (Let’s go Jets!) but we do know several of the movies that will be competing during the commercial breaks. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Paramount has five commercial spots for some of its upcoming films: Super 8, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Captain America: The First Avenger, Thor and Rango, Disney will be promoting Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, DreamWorks has bought time for Cowboys & Aliens and Relativity will air a spot for Limitless starring Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper.
Ads this year cost $3 million for a 30 second spot, slightly up compared to last year, so other studios have chosen to save money and buy time during pregame or Glee, which will air immediately following the game. Read which films will appear in those slots and also why we believe this isn’t the end of the Super Bowl shuffle. Read More »
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 »
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 lameLegion, 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.”
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.
