Priest poster May 13Get ready for some more supernatural drama, Truebies!  Stephen Moyer (Bill Compton on HBO’s True Blood) is in a new sci-fi thriller that comes out this Friday, May 13.  Wait a minute — Friday the 13th?  Oh, those Hollywood types are clever, aren’t they?  To make it even more exciting (or scary, depending on your constitution), it’s in 3D.  Priest stars Paul Bettany in the title role, and Maggie Q, Cam Gigandet, and Lily Collins.  This movie looks scary as heck, but don’t take my word for it — judge for yourself.

Video: New Trailer for “Priest” with Stephen Moyer

January 15, 2011

A Different Vampire Project

Priest movie poster (featuring Stephen Moyer)Stephen Moyer, otherwise known as Vampire Bill Compton on HBO‘s hit series True Blood, is starring in an upcoming film titled “Priest“.  A sci-fi thriller in 3D, it is based on the graphic novel series of the same name, written by Min-Woo Hyung.  Paul Bettany plays the lead role of “Priest”, and for Stephen Moyer (who plays his brother Aaron), the tables have turned — he plays a mortal in a world ravaged by vampires.

Upon learning that his niece Lucy (played by Lily Collins), has been kidnapped, the warrior priest breaks his Church vows in order to track down the vampires responsible, and to find Lucy before she is turned.  Joining him on this quest is a warrior priestess played by Maggie Q, and Lucy’s sheriff boyfriend, played by Cam Gigandet.

Director Scott Charles Stewart also directed Legion, and worked the visual effects on a slew of other popular films, which include: Mars Attacks; Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire; Superman Returns; Pirates of the Caribbean (2 and 3); Night at the Museum, and Iron Man.  Written by Cory Goodman and Min-Woo Hyung, Priest will be released on May 13.  Fans of the cult classic TV show Twin Peaks will be pleasantly surprised to see one of its beauties in the film, as well.

The movie looks interesting for sure, but definitely not for the faint of heart.  Check out the trailer below, and let us know what you think!

VIDEOS: Stephen Moyer Attends Priest Panel at Comic-con 2010

July 24, 2010

Stephen Moyer was particularly busy at Comic-con 2010 not only attending the True Blood autograph session and True Blood panel discussion but also participating on the Priest panel.  Stephen stars along with Paul Bettany, Cam Gigandet, Karl Urban, and Maggie Q in director Scott Stewart’s 3D production of Priest.

A western-infused post-apocalyptic thriller, 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. When his niece (Lily Collins) 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 (Cam Gigandet), a trigger-fingered young wasteland sheriff, his brother Aaron (Stephen Moyer) and a former Warrior Priestess (Maggie Q) who possesses otherworldly fighting skills.

Stephen Moyer’s Priest Release Date Moved Again

May 5, 2010

Sad news about Stephen Moyer‘s new movie Priest. Once again, the movie’s release date has been delayed. The first time Priest‘s release date was postponed, it was moved from August of 2010 to January of 2011 in order to retrofit the movie with 3D. Now, the January 2011 date has been moved to March 4, 2011. Let’s hope this is the last date change for Priest, which also stars Paul Bettany and Cam Gigandet.

VIDEO: Stephen Moyer in Priest

March 16, 2010

After the release date of Stephen Moyer‘s new movie Priest was moved back (in order for it to be made into a 3D movie), very little has been heard about it, and the only promotion we’ve seen for it is a poster. However, Entertainment Tonight in Canada has changed that. They aired a behind-the-scenes video that featured Priest star Paul Bettany, Stephen Moyer, and Cam Gigandet.

Stephen‘s part in the video is rather brief, but he compares the vampires in Priest to the vampires on True Blood. Check out the video (which is very short), and let us know what you think!

Stephen Moyer’s Movie Priest is Moved Back Again

February 6, 2010

If you were looking forward to seeing Stephen Moyer‘s new movie Priest, you unfortunately have to wait a bit longer now. Sony, the movie’s distributor, is pushing the release date back from August 20, 2010 to January 14, 2011. The reason for this? The movie is being turned into a 3-D feature.

So, even though we have a longer wait for Priest, once it does come out in early 2011, we’ll have the pleasure of seeing Stephen Moyer in 3-D!

Would you rather have the movie in 2-D and see it now, or is it worth the wait to see it in 3-D?

True Blood is One of the Things to Look Forward to in 2010

January 16, 2010

It feels like it has been ages since the season two of True Blood ended. Fans are eagerly awaiting the start of season three, especially with hints about what to expect trickling out. A new year on board means a bunch of new shows and movies to look forward to. Surely everybody has noticed the surge in vampire love as some shows and movies have come and gone, but the love for True Blood is as deep as ever. Recently FEARnet.com wrote about what to look forward to in 2010 and it’s no surprise that Stephen Moyer from True Blood was listed.

The Web site mentions that the end of the ’00s belonged to sparkly vampires, but 2010 takes the creatures back to their bloody roots. Daybreakers is one of the films anticipated this year as it stars Ethan Hawke, who plays a vampire scientist. That is set to release earlier in 2010, but what True Blood fans are looking forward to is later in the year.

Stephen Moyer and Cam Gigandet from Twilight will team up with Paul Bettany, who plays a warrior monk. Their film, Priest, will be out this summer and is loosely based on the Korean comic about a shotgun-toting, vampire-hunting clergyman. The cast also includes Karl Urban. 2010 has a long list of new and remade horror flicks but the one to look for is Priest that has True Blood’s very own Stephen Moyer playing Aaron.

Stephen Moyer to Begin Filming on Priest

August 25, 2009

priestDuring the break from shooting True Blood, Stephen Moyer will be sticking with the vampire genre he does so well as Bill Compton, but this time he will be playing a human in the movie Priest.

Variety describes the film as a thriller about “a warrior priest who turns against the church to track down a murderous band of vampires who kidnapped his niece.”

Paul Bettany has the role of main character Ivan Isaacs, and Stephen will be playing his brother. The cast also includes Cam Gigandet and Maggie Q as a sheriff and a priestess who help Isaacs track down the bloodsucking gang of vampires led by Karl Urban.

The story is based on a Korean comic book of the same name, which stylistically blends Western themes with dark fantasy.

stephen-moyer-bill-compton-season-twoDirected by Scott Stewart and written by Cory Goodman, Priest is a production of Screen Gems, the studio responsible for the Underworld and Resident Evil series. Filming begins this week in Los Angeles, CA, for a scheduled US release date of August 13, 2010. International release dates will follow in September and October 2010.

This will be Stephen‘s first major film role since his success on True Blood. It will be interesting to see how he is as a human dealing with vampires for a change!
