With its May 13th release just over a month away Screen Gems have released a new trailer for their post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller Priest. The movie stars Paul Bettany as a priest who lives in obscurity until his niece is abducted by a murderous pack of vampires.
On his travels he is joined by a trigger-fingered young wasteland sheriff (Cam Gigandet), and a former Warrior Priestess (Maggie Q) who possesses otherworldly fighting skills. Karl Urban also appears as Black Hat, a former Christian and currently a Satanist who is a cult leader of a group of vampires.

Director Scott Charles Stewart is also responsible for Legion (also starring Paul Bettany) which looked cool but wasn’t all that in the end. IGN recently attended WonderCon where footage from the film was shown, and they described it as “like an amalgam of Matrix wire-fu fighting and costuming, with some post-apocalyptic Mad Max western stuff, vampires reminiscent of those in Blade 2, and even elements of Equilibrium.”
