How much crap can the vampire-slaying movie Priest cram into one trailer?

Illustration for article titled How much crap can the vampire-slaying movie Priest cram into one trailer?

Future cities, motorcycles, brothers, CG monsters, CG vampires, cowboy vampires, Emperor-esque priests, forehead burns, brothers on their deathbeds, crucifix ninja weapons, lady warriors, train jumping — gasp! Everything you've ever wanted from a monster vampire motorcycle movie is in Priest.

But don't get us wrong — we love warrior priests on motorcycles who use religious paraphernalia as weapons. And after all, it couldn't possibly be worse than Legion, right... right? We like Karl Urban and future cities, so until we see the final thing, we remain completely overwhelmed — and loving it.


Here's the synopsis:

A legendary Warrior Priest from the last Vampire War now lives in obscurity among the other downtrodden human inhabitants in walled-in dystopian cities ruled by the Church. When his niece is abducted by a murderous pack of vampires, Priest breaks his sacred vows to venture out on an obsessive quest to find her before they turn her into one of them. He is joined on his crusade by his niece's boyfriend, a trigger-fingered young wasteland sheriff, and a former Warrior Priestess who possesses otherworldly fighting skills.

Priest will be in theaters May 13th.

I hate watching trailers that make me feel as if I've already seen the whole movie...
