First Priest trailer debuts for real this time

Sep. 9, 2010by: Paul Tassi

Way back in July I posted a bootlegged PRIEST trailer that Sony made me take down. Well apparently a month and a half later is the perfect time to debut it, and I think they've crammed in a few more scenes into it for this iteration.

I still don't really know what to think of it, and many of my sentiments from the previous time I wrote about this still stand like A) I'm sick of vampires, even if they're from the future B) the vampires are the shitty CGI I AM LEGEND kind and I'm now adding C) the red crosses on the priests' faces look more goofy than badass.

Check it out below and let me know what you think.

Extra Tidbit: Despite most of Paul Bettany religion-inspired roles, he's actually an atheist.

this movie was shot in 2d but being converted into 3d right? this movie does not look promising. the only part in the trailer that looked good was when that guy was kinda dancing and the crosses in the back lit up when he raised his arms (i think it was karl urban? the guy had on the indiana jones hat). i would maybe have hope if legion had been good, but that movie had an AWESOME trailer and was absolutely terrible. why would this movie, which is similar territory but on a much bigger

Ehh..

For one, it looks really dark (in scenery) so the 3D will make it Hard to see because all 3D is dim as fuck. The look overall does look a bit over the top I Am Legend cheap thrills. I'll wait til a friend sees this. Looks terrible honestly

As a fan of the series, it looks to be rather faithful, and the trailer had a nice epic vibe to it. I'm looking forward to it.

Not feeling it

This trailer is very very cliche, with unremarkable acting. No thanks

For someone who has not read Priest or the Preacher comics, shamefully I got these two confused and for a while thought Bettany was finally getting the Preacher series underway.

It looks expensive. I'm glad it's not 3D... is that praise? I don't know. If I knew priests did all this shit i would have joined the seminary after high school.

The cast has me excited. I'm a pretty big fan of Bettany in most of his past works. But I really hope that people slack off on the vampire theme. It is beginning to over-saturate the market.

Karl Urban is overrated

I haven't seen one outstanding performance by Karl Urban. There are much better actors. He is average at best. He should stick with Xena.
As for the Trailer: it sucks big time! Lazy filmmaking at it's best. Tons of CGI, lame story, generic action. We've seen it all in other movies. Only in better quality.

The only thing I thought looked bad was Karl Urban. I guess they just don't make hats to fit a noggin the size of a small planetoid.

A priest called Priest and a priestess called Priestess. That's bound to get confusing if they ever meet up with other priests or priestesses.

Sorry

But even with the awesome Karl Urban in this, I'm pretty sure it's gonna be poo!
I'll watch it eventually, but there's no way I'll be supporting this with my money!

The Chronicles of Riddick meets Book of Eli

This looks like everything else we've seen for the last decade.

A movie doesn't need to have amazing, eye-fucking special effects to be a good movie. I'll check this out.

Looks like JUDGE DREDD but with lame CGI vampires and no Stallone. Maybe I'll check it out on DVD.

Bad CGI, Paul Bettany, meh

could be alright i guess. not a Bettany fan, and those vampires look I Am Legend bad. It's a shame though, i hear the word vampire and lose interest immediately. Thanks Twilight.

Damn

that movie had potential, but looks decimated by bad cgi and chessy fight sequences.

HMMM ...

... trailer's good, but I'm a little puzzled by US release date. 13th May? Doesn't look like a summer blockbuster to me.

I am so sick and tired of stupid CGI vampire death effects used in new movies.

Extra Tidbit

Fucking no doy! His many religion-inspired roles are highly blasphemous and bitter towards religion. I wish more stars were like him instead of lying to the public about what they believe in order not to hurt boxoffice grosses.

The lack of Brad Dourif in this trailer (the only reason I'll be seeing this) makes me a very sad panda.

LOL

I take this film takes itself *very* seriously. It even has choral crescendos. Too bad I can't take it as seriously.

I think it looks pretty good. At worst it will be a decent one time viewing that will be entertaining for an hour and a half. i'd rather this then the killers or marmaduke so im not complaining. Also the cgi doesnt bother me
