clips and trailers: Priest (2011)

1 Comment


Priest is nearly upon us and I’ve only done one post on it… and that was months ago!

Anyway yes, as I said in that post – alternate future? post-apocalyptic dystopia? I’m there. It’s my favourite genre of fiction. I don’t care if there’s vampires, cannibals, zombies or just a simple breakdown of civilisation. I’m all over it.

Of course just because I love the genre doesn’t mean I actually enjoy all the films. I have hopes for Priest 3D… just not massively high hopes because well… I always make sure to squash down any high hopes I have. There’s nothing more deflating than when you realise you planted your own seeds of disappointment.

Caution lies in the fact that I know nothing about the director except that his last film wasn’t wasn’t particularly well received. However, I’m willing to give the guy a chance. I never saw it… I remain optimistic. It looks like fun and I really do think Paul Bettany is just a very intimidating guy, he’s creepy. Creepy is good in an ol’ dystopia.

I will be checking my brain at the door just in case and if it turns out that, happily, I need it to come and play well… I’ll just have to go and see the film again. I do generally prefer my dystopian fiction with a good bit of thought behind it but making it a requirement would just make things too difficult.

Anyway there are a few different trailers below so have a look and let me know what you think.

    Paul Bettany creepy? He just plays creepy roles doesn’t he?

    Apparently, creepy got him one of THE hottest MILFs of our generation: Jennifer Connelly. She gets better looking the older she gets. THAT’S creepy.
