Anthony Hopkins will exorcise the demons in this trailer for The Rite

10.20.2010

"We have exorcised the demons!"

Last night's Scream Awards were certainly odd to say the least. The best thing that happened was seeing Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd together again. Worst thing? Watching Marilyn Manson act like a jackass.

Another thing that was really cool was seeing Anthony Hopkins. The guys has this amazing voice. I'd listen to him read the instruction manual to a 1986 Toyota Camry. It was Hopkins job to introduce the trailer for his upcoming film, THE RITE.

If you like a good exorcism movie, this might peek your interest. This true story comes from the book of the same name by Matt Baglio. He goes deep into the world of possession, demons, the Devil, and exorcism. Baglio got to spend time with the person who inspired the character that Hopkins plays. While the name of the priest was changed for the film, his experiences were all chronicled by Baglio for the book. THE RITE was directed by Mikael Håfström (1408, DERAILED).

If you would like to see it in HD, head on over to Apple.

Synopsis:

Inspired by true events, “The Rite” follows skeptical seminary student Michael Kovak (Colin O’Donoghue), who reluctantly attends exorcism school at the Vatican. While in Rome, he meets an unorthodox priest, Father Lucas (Anthony Hopkins), who introduces him to the darker side of his faith. Directed by Mikael Hafstroem (“1408″), “The Rite” is a supernatural thriller that uncovers the devil’s reach to even one of the holiest places on Earth.

Extra Tidbit: For those of you who watched the SCREAM AWARDS last night, where you wondering what the hell MIA was doing there? I wanted to throw something at her, but figured it wasn't a good idea since I would be throwing it at my TV.

This Looks shittier than The Last Exorcism.

I love Anthony Hopkins but lets be real he will play in almost anything kind of like nicolas cage. And this is no doubt a shitty horror exorcisim movie that is coming out in january and anthony hopkins is the only decent actor in it. That right there should tell you its gonna be bad. January usually is one of those months that never do well for movies. this looks worse then the last exorcism and they always try and get people with that based on a true story bullshit. Hopefully Dont be afraid of

Hopefully Dont be afraid of the dark will be good though because that also has a january release.

Thought this looked really interesting! As far as MIA goes, that was awful. Wished they woulda had someone else perform. Also i didnt see a problem with anything Manson did??

Anthony Hopkins is a great actor and I have been waiting for him to return to the genre.

I'm with Marcey....

Definitely looks solid and Hafstrom did such an amazing job with 1408. Very excited.

And like Marcey said, lay off our editors guys. This isn't CNN nor do we act like it is. Nikki does a great job along with everyone else who writes here.

I'm sold.

And seriously ... someone is taking a shot at a spelling error? Yeah we aren't 10 years old in school anymore, surely an email to Niki telling her she made an error would have been fine.

Actually it's not a spelling error. She didn't misspell "pique", she used an entirely different word.
If one fucks up, one should be able to stand corrected.

It's not "peek" . . .

. . . your interest might be "PIQUED", never "PEEKED". Does no one edit this crap anymore?

Looks decent enough. There's only so many ways you can make a demonic possesion movie scary.
