Don't point fingers at this new still from Priest

06.28.2010by:

Any news that we usually have to deliver for PRIEST has something to do with a push back or delay.

If it wasn't for an unnecessary 3D conversion, we'd have the film by now. However, I think that the film is starting to lose a significant amount of interest from those that were mildly looking forward to it. This might have something to do with a most recent directorial effort from this films helmer Scott Charles Stewart. His last movie was LEGION. Now most of you were quick to say that the film looked like a piece of crap, but there were some who still had a glimmer of hope for the film. Hopefully this one won't turn out that way.

All opinions aside, here is the first still with Paul Bettany as Priest. It's nice to finally see something from the film. Although, I can't get past the fact that the pasty pointing guy on the ground looks like William Sadler's Grim Reaper from BILL & TED'S BOGUS JOURNEY.

Synopsis:

"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." The film is due out May 13th, 2011.

Extra Tidbit: Paul Bettany chooses some interesting roles. If I were him, my favorite would be guy who bangs Jennifer Connelly.

It seems like they stuck that last sentence in the plot summary in just for shits and giggles. I don't want to judge too early, but this thing sounds bad. Maybe not Uwe Boll bad (yet), but pretty bad.

I'm very on the fence regarding this movie. Considering the giant flop that Legion was and the similarities between the two stories, I'm just not convinced by Paul Bettany.

This movie went from mild interest to almost 0 interest.. judging by how poorly Legion and Jonah Hex did at the box office.. this can't be a good outcome.

You can't judge how good a movie is by its box office numbers.
