Screen Gems has released a new Deliver Us from Evil trailer for director Scott Derrickson’s (The Exorcism of Emily Rose) new supernatural thriller. The film stars Eric Bana as a New York Detective Ralph Sarchie, who teams up with an unconventional priest (Edgar Ramirez) to investigate a series of disturbing and inexplicable crimes. This trailer focuses more on how the investigation affects Sarchie’s family, and how demonic possessions appear to be spreading like an epidemic. It looks kind of silly, especially when you have a detective asking a woman he believes to be mentally ill, “What’s wrong witchu?” Very compassionate.
Hit the jump to watch the new Deliver Us from Evil trailer. The film also stars Olivia Munn, Joel McHale, and Sean Harris. Deliver Us from Evil opens July 2nd.
