Screen Gems red-haired step-child, Priest has been delayed multiple times even though the film wrapped ages ago. The studio decided to convert it to 3D and also gave it a “final” release date of May 13, 2011. Over at /Film, they’ve posted a new batch of photos from the movie that includes shots of its major stars in action. Take a look…
Priest centers on “a world ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampire and follows a warrior priest who turns against the church to track down a murderous band of vampires who have kidnapped his niece.” The cast includes Paul Bettany, Cam Gigandet, Maggie Q, Karl Urban, and Stephen Moyer, Madchen Amick, and Christopher Plummer.
From what we’ve heard, the actual premise of the Manga from which the film is adapted varies in the actual movie. There is a question of how close director Scott Stewart remains to the source material that could impact whether or not the film is a success.
In these shots in particular, Maggie Q does look badass as the Priestess, but we’re more interested in seeing Moyer in costume. We’re so used to watching him as Bill on “True Blood” that sometimes we forget that he’s an actor who can actually play other characters.
