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

"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.


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.
