The first trailer for Mikael Hafstrom’s “The Rite” seemed to be hedging its bet when it came to the supernatural elements. This second trailer, though, seems to have given up on that. I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure it’s gone and come out and say that yeah, there are really supernatural shenanigans afoot in the movie. Anyways, second trailer for “The Rite” starring Anthony Hopkins and a bunch of other people, including Alice Braga from “Predators” and “I am Legend”. Plus, Rutger Hauer’s in there, somewhere.
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.
