Priest is set in an alternate world 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. 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, a trigger-fingered young wasteland sheriff, and a former Warrior Priestess who possesses otherworldly fighting skills.

The film is directed by Scott Stewart who also helmed Legion, and it co-stars Karl Urban, Maggie Q (“Nikita“), Cam Gigandet, Stephen Moyer (“True Blood“), Madchen Amick, and Christopher Plummer.

Priest opens in theaters everywhere on May 13, 2011.
