Video: Wondercon 2011: Paul Bettany Makes Us Pray For ‘Priest' To Be Good

on April 03, 2011 by Todd Gilchrist


On Friday, April 1, Paul Bettany joined fellow members of the cast and crew of his new film Priest to premiere footage at a special screening during Wondercon, San Francisco's comic book and fantasy convention. Bettany stars as the title character, a retired religious police officer in a futuristic society who asks to be reinstated to pursue a horde of monstrous vampires. Boxoffice sat down with Bettany the following morning, where the star of such films as A Knight's Tale, A Beautiful Mind, and The Da Vinci Code explained how he transformed his "reader's body" into the ruthless killing machine that makes the film's bloodsuckers tremble with fear.

Priest is being released in theaters nationwide on May 13, 2011.
