Anthony Hopkins is back and he’s scaring us sh*tless in the supernatural thriller The Rite. We were first introduced to the film back in October when the teaser trailer was released and today we’ve got a follow up. A full trailer has debuted on Apple, and it shows us even more sides of Hopkins and his shady character. Take a look…
Inspired by true events, “The Rite” follows skeptical seminary student Michael Kovak (Colin O’Donoghue), who reluctantly attends exorcism school at the Vatican. While in Rome, he meets an unorthodox priest, Father Lucas (Anthony Hopkins), who introduces him to the darker side of his faith. Directed by Mikael Hafstroem (“1408″), “The Rite” is a supernatural thriller that uncovers the devil’s reach to even one of the holiest places on Earth.
They definitely amped up the action for this version didn’t they? It’s kind of disappointing that they reveal Hopkins’ character as being possibly possessed. That would have been a great thing to see in theaters with an audience. The shock and horror of it all.
The Rite hits theaters on January 28, 2011.
