Directed by Scott Stewart, who directed the less than impressive film Legion, Priest is the new film starring Paul Bettany, who also starred in Legion. Due to the fact that it was post-converted to 3D, the film was delayed and is set to open on May 13th. I wasn’t impressed by the first trailer, and this one doesn’t change things. It looks messy and reminds me of Legion, which I didn’t enjoy. The plot summary is as follows:
A legendary Warrior Priest from the last Vampire War now lives in obscurity among the other downtrodden human inhabitants in walled-in dystopian cities ruled by the Church. When his niece is abducted by a murderous pack of vampires, Priest breaks his sacred vows to venture out on an obsessive quest to find her before they turn her into one of them. He is joined on his crusade by his niece’s boyfriend, a trigger-fingered young wasteland sheriff, and a former Warrior Priestess who possesses otherworldly fighting skills.
