New batch of images from Anthony Hopkins’ “based on a true story” exorcism flick “The Rite”. Hey, I’d watch Hopkins do anything, even play Odin in “Thor”. Here, though, he looks in his element, and if nothing else, this should prove to be another excellent performance from the always excellent actor. Check them out, check them outers.
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.
Starring Anthony Hopkins, Alice Braga, Ciarán Hinds, Rutger Hauer, Chris Marquette, Franco Nero, Toby Jones, Torrey DeVitto, Maria Grazia Cucinotta, Colin O’Donoghue, Marta Gastini and directed by Mikael Hafstrom.
