First full trailer for Priest reveals the vampires of the future
I don't know much about the original Tokyopop series that the PRIEST film is adapting, other than it’s a futuristic world where vampires run amok and warrior “priests” hunt them down. We’ve seen a few pics and clips from the set, but this is the first time we’ve seen any extended footage, and finally we’ve got a real trailer on our hands.
I’m split on what I’m seeing here. I think the world that’s been created is pretty goddamn cool looking, very BLADERUNNER/AKIRA. The cast is solid as well, as I’m a fan of all those casted here including Cam Gigandet, Paul Bettany, Karl Urban and Maggie Q.
But I’m just so sick of goddamn vampires at this point, I’m pre-disposed to be annoyed with that concept. And when I see that most of the vampires are of the poorly CGI-ed, I AM LEGEND variety, that makes things even worse. Lastly, when I learn that this is the team that brought us LEGION, which also had a great trailer, yet it turned out to be complete shit, I’m highly skeptical they’ve acquired that much more filmmaking talent in the last year.
How does it look to you?
Sony Pictures has requested that we remove the bootleg Comic-Con footage
