First Official Trailer for Priest Debuts
Posted 09.10.10 by Ryan
Director Scott Stewart's adaptation of Korean author Min-Woo Hyun's comic book Priest has had a rough beginning. Originally intended for an October 2010 release, Priest has been shuffled not once, not twice, not thrice, but four times before settling into its (still holding) May 13, 2011, release date.
While both comic book movies and vampire movies are enjoying popularity at the box office lately, Priest also combines sci-fi elements by placing the movie in a world where priests are, according to Stewart, "like Jedi knights" who have saved humanity once before from vampires but are now treated as outcasts as the movie begins. It's up to Paul Bettany to save the day when he uncovers a vampire conspiracy.
Crackle has released the first official trailer, providing the first look at the movie outside of a behind-the-scenes featurette and a few photos. Watch it below.
Priest also stars Cam Gigandet, Karl Urban, Stephen Moyer, and Maggie Q.
