The just released trailer for one of next year’s first hopeful blockbusters, Priest. Based on Min-Woo Hyung’s graphic novel, it’s tough to tell what you’re gonna get with this one. Will it be just another questionable Supernatural Graphic Novel hackfest (Constantine, Legion, I Am Legend, etc), or will it be a surprise quality sleeper? Some pretty cliched scenes in the trailer (following the spinning knife into the unsuspecting head of a vampire, copious communion iconography, etc) but it may have promise. Seeing as it has the same director (Scott Charles Stewart) and protagonist (Paul Bettany) as Legion, you can pretty much tell what you’re gonna get. Priest also stars Christopher Plummer, Karl Urban, Maggie Q and True Blood’s Stephen Moyer, Priest hits theaters on May 13, 2011.
