Making its premium cable channel debut this weekend on Starz was 2011’s “Priest”, starring Paul Bettany, Maggie Q and Karl Urban.
“Priest” is a movie set in the proverbial “Dystopian Future”, where large city states are controlled by a religious hierarchy, while outside their walls, vast wastelands are overrun with vampires. Due to vampire’s traditional weakness to religious artifacts and items, the warriors in charge of defending the cities and fighting vampires are priests.
When one of the priests hears that his frontier relatives have been slaughtered by vampires, and their daughter kidnapped, he leaves the protection of the city in order to prowl the wastes in search of the girl.
Back from my day at New York Comic-Con. Got up yesterday at 5:00 am, got home at a little after 1:00 am. I used my own car, two trains, a cab and a bus to get there and back. We waited in line for about three hours out of the day, sat through numerous panels we didn’t care anything about, but at the end of the day, I got to get Stan Lee’s autograph, I saw unseen footage from the upcoming “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance”, presented by directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, got to see an awesome scene from season two of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” presented by the cast, and got to see an entire scene from next year’s “The Avengers”, a full 6 months before it gets released.
