After those posters, that first trailer, and more importantly, the fact that Legion was such a large and painful stain of bodily excretion, is there any hope for Priest?

Screen Gems has just released a new trailer for the film, perhaps realizing that it wasn’t the brightest idea to start hyping up this kind of film almost a year before release. Didn’t exactly work for Legion, did it? But it’s actually quite a bit better than the last, although those CGI vampires still look very silly, and they seem to be going nuts with those “throwing stuff at the screen” shots. It’s strange to see them take this material quite seriously- a camp film like this could have been done beautifully.

Priest hits theaters in May.
