A third clip from “Priest” has popped up online. It’s also the second clip featuring Paul Bettany’s warrior priest character and Cam Gigandet playing some guy in a cowboy get-up. In this clip, though, Gigandet’s character finally makes himself useful. I guess he’s not just a pretty face after all!
Priest is set in a world ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampires. Paul Bettany is Priest, a legendary warrior priest during the last Vampire War, who now lives in obscurity among the other human inhabitants in walled-in dystopian cities controlled by the Church. But when his 18-year-old niece is abducted by a murderous pack of vampires in the desolate wastelands outside, Priest breaks his sacred vows and ventures out to find her and seek vengeance upon those responsible, especially their brutal leader (Karl Urban). Priest is joined on his crusade by his niece’s boyfriend, Hicks (Cam Gigandet), a local outpost sheriff, and Priestess (Maggie Q), a member of his former legion of vampire-killers who has otherworldly fighting skills.
Also starring Maggie Q (who also gets her own clip, check it out below), Karl Urban, Lily Collins, Stephen Moyer, Mädchen Amick, Christopher Plummer, Brad Dourif, Casey Pieretti, Josh Wingate, and directed by Scott Stewart.
