First Poster for PRIEST Starring Paul Bettany

     December 22, 2009


If you look at some of the film’s Paul Bettany has done in the past several years: The Reckoning, The Da Vinci Code, Creation, Legion, and now Priest, the guy may have some interest in the inherent drama of the implications and applications of Christianity.  I could be totally off-base with this assumption, but then again, the first poster for Priest features him with a tattoo of a crucifix on his face while hellfire burns around him.  It’s possible that the film may not be the Pope’s favorite of 2010.

Priest has Bettany re-teaming with Legion director Scott Stewart in the story of a warrior priest (Bettany) who disobeys Church law by teaming with a young sheriff (Cam Gigandet) and a beautiful priestess (Maggie Q) to track down a band of renegade vampires who have kidnapped the priest’s niece before they turn her into one of them.  The film co-stars Karl Urban, Lily Collins, Steven Moyer, Brad Dourif, and Christopher Plummer.

Hit the jump to check out the poster.  Priest hits theaters on August 20, 2010.
