Priest – Movie Trailer 2
The first trailer for Priest was ok, but really didn’t show too much of the world or the bad guys that this tattooed priest was going toe to toe with. This second trailer ups the stakes significantly and is much more interesting for it. We get to see more of Karl Urban’s villainous Black Hat, as well as some of what seems ot be his origin as a fallen Priest. Other than that there looks to be a lot of action in the vein (geddit?) of Underworld and even Kurt Wimmer’s Ultraviolet. Based on the Tokyopop Manga, this looks like it may be a whole lot of fun!
Priest is set in a world ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampires. Paul Bettany is Priest, a legendary warrior priest during the last Vampire War, who now lives in obscurity among the other human inhabitants in walled-in dystopian cities controlled by the Church. But when his 18-year-old niece is abducted by a murderous pack of vampires in the desolate wastelands outside, Priest breaks his sacred vows and ventures out to find her and seek vengeance upon those responsible, especially their brutal leader (Karl Urban). Priest is joined on his crusade by his niece’s boyfriend, Hicks (Cam Gigandet), a local outpost sheriff, and Priestess (Maggie Q), a member of his former legion of vampire-killers who has otherworldly fighting skills.

What do you think? Is this the saviour of the Vampire genre? Or another wooden stake in the heart of Vampire films everywhere? Feedback bloodsuckers!
