Priest: A Non-Sparkly Vamp Flick!

 Ooooh la la! Here's a scrumptious treat for all you Cin-Obs who enjoy non-sparkly vamp flicks. Although we love us the lighter, cheezwhizy kind of movies like Twilight (2008), Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992),  and Dracula: Dead and Loving It (1995), we also enjoy the darker, more hardcore vampire movies, like 40 Days of Night (2007), and Blade (1998).

Here's the dry, but super enticing synopsis for y'all:

A post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller, is set in an alternate world -- one ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampires. The story revolves around a legendary Warrior Priest (Paul Bettany) from the last Vampire War who now lives in obscurity among the other downtrodden human inhabitants in walled-in dystopian cities ruled by the Church. When his niece (Lily Collins) is abducted by a murderous pack of vampires, Priest breaks his sacred vows to venture out on a quest to find her before they turn her into one of them. He is joined on his crusade by his niece's boyfriend (Cam Gigandet), a trigger-fingered young wasteland sheriff, and a former Warrior Priestess (Maggie Q) who possesses otherworldly fighting skills.

Needless to say, we're in. Post-apocalyptic? Vamps? Suweeeeet! We're sure it'll be action-packed with some seriously debatable religious/moral themes. It's too soon for trailers, but we did find a little featurette of sorts from Entertainment Tonight Canada. Now please disregard the uber-magooness that is Rick Campanelli, and listen to Bettany talk about this upcoming 3D vamp-battling-sure-to-be-hit!

Anyone else ready for a non-Twilight romp with some seriously dangerous vamps?
