Excited about the upcoming release of ‘Priest?’ Here’s something to whet your appetite a bit…
Genndy Tartakovsky’s (‘Star Wars: Clone Wars’, ‘Samurai Jack’) animated opening sequence for the upcoming movie ‘Priest’ is now online. You can find it here. Mobile users with the Microsoft Tag Reader app can scan markers on standees in theaters to download the sequence to their phones as well. Exciting stuff! This is appealing to both ‘Priest’ and Tartakovsky fans alike.
In addition, Screen Gems has launched a ‘Priest’ game at Priestmoviegame.com. The game is in both 2-D and 3-D, with 3-D glasses available at select stores.
‘Priest,’ a western-fused post-apocalyptic 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 an obsessive 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.
Scott Stewart directed the film, which hits theaters on May 13.
