Anthony Hopkins and director Mikael Hafstrom’s demon exocirsm movie “The Rite” has debuted its first poster. It’s Anthony Hopkins-licious. I would like to tell you that this movie is going to do gangbuster business, but let’s face it, it’s not. Of course, that doesn’t mean you still shouldn’t see it. Hopkins in a thriller is always entertaining stuff.
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.
