quietearth [Celluloid 07.24.10] post apocalyptic movie trailer news scifi horror action dystopic



All I can say is WOW! This is Dune rad! And I thought it was going to be crap.

PRIEST, a post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller, is set in an alternate world -- one ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampires. The story revolves around a legendary Warrior Priest (Paul Bettany) from the last Vampire War who now lives in obscurity among the other downtrodden human inhabitants in walled-in dystopian cities ruled by the Church. When his niece (Lily Collins) is abducted by a murderous pack of vampires, Priest breaks his sacred vows to venture out on a quest to find her before they turn her into one of them. He is joined on his crusade by his niece's boyfriend (Cam Gigandet), a trigger-fingered young wasteland sheriff, and a former Warrior Priestess (Maggie Q) who possesses otherworldly fighting skills.

It looks like a better version of 'The Mutant' Chronicles'.

Seems like a fun movie and the vampires at least try to look like monsters. I'm so tired of the vampires we get today, lame ass Twilight-True Blood pale suckers. Last good vampires I saw were the ones in 30 days of night. Anyway, this is a cool looking trailer, the PA elements are there, now let's hope it doesn't let us down.

This looks like the movie I've been waiting for for ten years! A good combo of PA, horror, scifi - and yes I agree it reminds of Mutant Chronicles (without the WWI influence).

Yesterday I had no interest in this project. Now I'm all turned around.

Are you all crazy? This looks like sh*t - the worst parts of I Am Legend and Resident Evil (and that's saying something) thrown in a blender with some Spawn quality CGI. AND IT'S SCREEN GEMS!!!

I hope it will be good but the last movie this director did was Legion which kinda sucked. I hope this time around they have a better story and script.

Looks nothing like the original graphic novel!?
That was a western cowboy priest fighting fallen angels (and tons of zombies)... Why is it turned into a PA priest fighting vampires?

MAKES NO SENSE!? Worst thing, the priest GN has stopped at vol. 16... now we get a new series Priest: purgatory that will try to conenct the Graphic Novel to the movies, whole storyline ruined by this flick :/

See, this is why I don't read books or graphic novels. They just ruin their movies ;)

@ Skinstripper: Agreed. But the landscapes and sets are nicely done, at least. Loved the Mad Max-ian train design! Anyway, might make a decent rental.

I noticed that you guys are talking about how the movie seems different from the original graphic novel. There’s actually a new manwha coming out in April called Priest: Purgatory that Min-Woo was involved with. It is meant to act as a bridge between the graphic novel and the movie. Here’s a sneak peek http://twitpic.com/4d93pk http://twitpic.com/4d93xu. You can also read more about it here http://www.tokyopop.com/Priest/tp_article/3068663.html
