After the floppy wobbly Legion, Scott Stewart and Paul Bettany are back with another religious session of ass kicking with Priest. Judging by the trailer, which is now online, it might be an improvement.
Naturally, the manga it's based on has vampires in it - evil, blind, underground dwelling bloodsuckers, who have been at war with man for decades. After the church took over government, they trained up fighting priests to rid the world of the scummy sinful creatures.
Enter Paul Bettany. Now, though, the vampires have been largely defeated, and our titular priest is trying to live a normal everyday life. Then some rogue vampires kidnap his niece. So he goes back to kicking ass for the Lord.
It's not that bad looking, given the cheesy dialogue and copious slow-motion. There's an especially interesting bit at 1:01, where you can see a crazy man in a hat conducting an invisible orchestra. For the trailer, head over to First Showing. For more on invisible orchestras, head here. Alternatively, just read on for the video.
Priest hits cinemas in May 2011. Oh, and it'll be in 3D.
