It’s one thing if Priest is just another bad horror action movie, but it’s sad how much work is wasted on this. It took two years to make Priest. There’ve been enough Comic-Con and WonderCon presentations with newer footage. It’s not like they’re slacking off. They just consciously decided to spend all that time and money to make a movie that looks like everything else, and not even the good everything else. They’re not aspiring to Raiders of the Lost Ark. They’re aspiring to Alien Vs Predator.

First of all, who decided that this blue/gray color was cool? Second, what is a diehard vampire fan supposed to enjoy about this, let alone a casual viewer? So priests are actually vampire killers now, and they do the exact same moves all the other vampire slayers did and kill the same wrinkly, toothy CGI monsters.

The characters are only superficially priests anyway. Priest (Paul Bettany) checks in with his boss at a confessional, he prays to God and has a cross tattooed on his nose, but there’s no religious mythology about it. He defies your standard hooded counsel in a dirty future. Sheriff Hicks (Cam Gigandet) says he heard Priest was the best vampire killer, in case the fact that he’s the star of the movie doesn’t tell us that already.

New ‘Priest’ Trailer A Work Of Vampire Alarmism

They’re hunting for Lucy (Lily Collins), a farm girl kidnapped by Black Hat (Karl Urban), a former priest who Priest (Bettany) lost in the war. Priest and Hicks question suspects and fight vampires along the way. They keep talking about the old days as if that’s atmosphere. Priestess (Maggie Q) hooks up with them midway and tells us more about PTSD to be sure we all understand the priests’ struggles.

Look, you can use the formula if you’re celebrating it. Priest just feels stuck and the characters can’t get out. They even cut a decent trailer, so if they can make a trailer look cool, why not actually make a good movie? The point should be to create the coolest vampire action you can imagine, not just do the moves you saw other vampire killers do in other movies no one cared about. Priest may step on flying rocks in mid air and throw some crosses as ninja stars, but that’s still way behind the action of movies like Shoot ‘Em Up or Hobo with a Shotgun, let alone what the Thais are doing.

Priest tries to be Clint Eastwood so everything he says is a slogan about being numb to violence. Black Hat is all about “join me, join me…” Maybe if bad guys want friends so badly they should stop being evil. There’s only one good Maggie Q fight, in the desert by the train tracks. They even do the Cliffhanger “I won’t let you go” bit, although the audience for this movie wasn’t born yet in 1993 so it’s new to them.

The crew may have put a lot into the sets but they just look like generic rubble. See, it takes just as long to construct a dump as it does to make Blade Runner. Jericho actually ends up looking like a real post-apocalyptic town, for the two scenes we get to see it.

It just makes me sad to think director Scott Stewart and all the artists under him had high ambitions and substantial resources… for this. They think they’re making their ultimate vision, but I bet the studio knew the whole time. The executives probably figured out exactly what they needed to spend to make the bare minimum profit from an audience that already existed, so they didn’t strive for more.

If you need a hot babe who can kick vampire butt, you hire Maggie Q. Seems obvious, right? Why would you even audition anyone else? For Priest, Q won the role of Priestess, Priestess being the female form of Priest in case you were wondering. While all the other Priestess hopefuls tried to show off their cleavage, Q impressed director Scott Stewart in her street clothes.

“We did the casting thing and had a lot of young, very attractive, very well known young actresses,” Stewart said. “They’re coming in and they’re all wearing these cat suits and all these things. They would wear boots and stuff. Maggie came in wearing ratty jeans and a faded Beastie Boys t-shirt. She had an ice tea or diet coke, she walked in and was like, ‘I think I dressed wrong for this.’”

Nope, Maggie. You look awesome in anything. “First of all, you’re right, the heels and the hair, and there was all this smokey eye [make-up] happening and boobage, which I couldn’t do, even if I wanted to, so I was jealous,” she recalled with Stewart. “I came and thought I was at the wrong place because, last time I checked, the role was for a Priest. So why would you do the boobage and the hair and the heels? I was mortified. I was like, ‘What is happening right now?’”

Stewart thinks the other auditioners were copying Underworld, which is that other movie where hot women in tight spandex fight monsters. Q was just thinking of nailing the test scene.

Sweet 'Priest' Animated Prologue

“What matters is what you bring to the table,” she said. “It’s hard to find your inner truth in a little room with four people that you don’t know. I think all this [exterior], I don’t know what that’s about. I don’t know why they do it, I don’t know what it’s about. Obviously as well by the way, the point is if you’re in a room with a director who understands at a certain level what he wants to bring on screen, none of this matters. [The costumers] make you into whatever it is that they’re going to make you into.”

So without her homemade vamp suit, Q conveyed the reality of being a vampire hunting priestess in a Hollywood boardroom. “We did two scenes,” Stewart said. “One was the scene where she hands the cross back to Priest and she just took us there. You’re just immediately there. You’re just there. You’re like oh, okay, this feels like a movie and it feels like a movie that takes place in this kind of alternate heightened reality or alternate reality. You’re there.”

Priest opens Friday.

Here’s a little something to get you amped for the release of the adaptation of the vampire graphic novel Priest next week. This cool animated prologue created by Genndy Tartakovsky sets up the story in a quick, graphic way, and lets you know that neither the vampires nor the men of the cloth should be trifled with. The introduction by Maggie Q also helps you to remember that Maggie Q is in the film in tight pants kicking ass. So there’s that.

WonderCon: ‘Priest’ Footage Breakdown http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/wondercon-priest-footage-breakdown/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/wondercon-priest-footage-breakdown/#comments Sat, 02 Apr 2011 07:39:23 +0000 Fred Topel http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=205123 A full sequence and a sizzle reel screened to an impressed crowd.

The post WonderCon: ‘Priest’ Footage Breakdown appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>

I’ve seen the movie Priest already. The 1994 Miramax drama really asked important questions about the church. I was the only one at WonderCon who got that joke. The version of Priest that previewed there looks way cooler. They showed a full sequence and a sizzle reel.

The money shot in the extended sequence is when Priest (Paul Bettany) cracks open a bible, crosses fly out and turn into ninja stars which he hurls at the vampires. Priest and Hicks (Cam Gigandet) have entered Night Shade, an underground reservation for surviving vampires.

There’s slime on the banister and Priest kicks in a door to find a Renfield-esque creature babbling in the dark. Some vampire goons throw axes at the vampire hunters, and Hicks just tosses one back at ‘em. Hicks is going to shoot the other three, but Priest tells him to save his bullets and takes them all out with broken bones and stabbing.

It’s only when the sun goes down that Priest advises Hicks to get his gun. That’s when the horde of vampires come out and Priest has to unleash the ninja crosses. The nighttime vampires look like CGI. They’ve got four fangs biting at the heroes and bald wrinkly heads covering any eyes they may have had but no longer do. It’s a generic monster. The way they’re dispatched is cool.

The sizzle reel kept coming back to a sequence with a train. In a Mad Max-ish desert, they ride motorcycles to catch the train. We see Priestess (Maggie Q) take out a lot of evil motorcyclists. She jump kicks one off his bike. She knee slides under a scythe blade. She lassos a bike and flips it over. She even lassos a vampire in mid-air and rips him in half. A lot of trainto fighting too.

The footage had a familiar gray-blue look although the production value looks higher than the usual blue-gray horror movie. The 3D looks fine but creates a good solid image for Bettany and Q to pose in after they take out the bad guys.

Maggie Q is busy up in Toronto kicking butt on the set of her new CW show “Nikita.” The Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills got a sneak peak at the second episode last night. The rest of us get to see it tonight. Executive producer Craig Silverstein was there to tell us about the sexy, badass movies Q will unleash in the next few weeks.

More after the jump…

“In the fourth episode, she takes on about six guys at once in a sweatshop with a telescoping baton,” Silverstein said. “It is probably the coolest sequence we have up to that point. It’s really amazing. In the episode we’re going to screen tonight, there’s Maggie behind a 50 caliber sniper rifle which is always cool. She fights Michael (Shane West) in the third episode.”

When you’re playing a rogue assassin trying to take down your evil agency, it’s pretty serious stuff. Silverstein wants to give Nikita a few lighter moments for the sake of Maggie Q. “She’s really, really funny and she has a very edgy and dark sense of humor, which is something that I didn’t know before I met her. There’s not a lot of chances for Nikita to crack jokes but since she’s so funny, we’re trying to figure out how we can make that work in the show.”

Maybe all you know about “Nikita” is those giant billboards of Maggie Q’s leg with the phoenix tattoo on her hip. That’s enough to make you watch anyway. “[CW Marketing EVP] Rick Haskins masterminded the billboard campaign but the tattoo is all Maggie,” Silverstein said.

“Nikita” is based on the French film “La Femme Nikita,” the USA series “La Femme Nikita” and I guess als the American remake “Point of No Return.” But, this is the first time Nikita has turned on Division. It’s after the events of those other movies and shows, but you’ll still see new recruits trained to be assassins.

“It’s a sequel and you’re also getting the origin story through Alex (Lindsy Fonseca) so it’s a bit of a remake. So it’s a sequake, okay? It’s a cross between a sequel and a remake. It’s a sequake, TM, © Registered.”

If you’re a little confused about how the timing of all that works, don’t worry. They’ve got it all mapped out. “Believe me, we’re all about the math. We have a giant timeline in our writer’s room that says what happened when and where.”

“Nikita” airs Thursday nights on The CW.

If you’re into blind vampires, Catholicism, and Paul Bettany’s abs, you’re really going to like this new trailer for Priest. If you could live without most of those things, you clearly haven’t looked hard enough at Paul Bettany‘s abs. A man of the cloth with a six pack like that. It’s almost not fair, am I right, ladies?

The film stars Paul Bettany’s abs, Karl Urban, Lily Collins, Maggie Q, Christopher Plummer, Cam Gigandet, and Stephen Moyer. The story revolves around a legendary Warrior Priest (Bettany’s abs) who lives in obscurity among other downtrodden human inhabitants in walled-in dystopian cities ruled by the Church. When his niece (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. Maggie Q and Cam Gigandet also help kick some blind vampire ass. Seems unfair going up against handicapped vampires, but if they’re anything like my neighbor, they don’t let you steal their valuables without leaving some teeth marks first.

I can’t embed or download the trailer, so check it out at Crackle here.

If you think the new “Nikita” is just another Hollywood remake, you might be interested to know how much effort has gone into proving you wrong. The forthcoming CW series is set six years after Nikita (Maggie Q) became a secret agent, and now she’s gone rogue and wants to bring Division down. They’re still taking sexy convicts and training them to go on deadly missions, but there are six years worth of complex relationships Nikita is working through. If you’ve never seen the Luc Besson La Femme Nikita or the Peta Wilson starring series, the CW’s version will catch you up.

Shane West plays Michael, the boss who originally recruited Nikita, and who is still training new agents. Is he the bad guy, or are there more surprises coming? West kept up the spy tactics by doing a phone interview, and laying out som kick-ass action scenes and possible plots. It’s confidential enough to get you excited for the show’s premiere on September 9, but nothing he’ll get a burn notice for. 

SJ: It must be exciting gearing up for next week.

SW: Yeah, I think it’s just kind of hitting us because we’ve been doing it for a little bit. I think it’s just finally hitting us, like, “Oh my God, it’s next week.”

SJ: Are you jealous that all the billboards are Maggie Q’s sexy butt tattoo?

SW: Uh, no, especially the way you worded it. [Laughs] No, because I get to see her sexy butt tattoo all the time. Let’s be honest, hip bone tattoo, but no, not at all. I mean, it’s “Nikita” for God’s sake and we’re very proud of everything that’s happening for the show already. It’s kind of good. I did tell her though, “You better be happy you’re in Toronto. With all this billboard extravaganza in L.A. and New York and I don’t know where else, because you’re not going to be able to walk down the street. At least in Toronto you’re okay.”

SJ: Since it starts six years later, how much of the original “Nikita” story is going to be in the regular series?

SW: There has to be some. I feel that there are similar characters and some of the original characters from the film and the series, but it’s a few years into the future where she’s gone rogue and she’s going against Division now, which has obviously never happened in the other renditions. I think what they do is they’ve kept some of the core together from the original writings, but there are new characters and additions. Lyndsy Fonseca, who plays Alex who’s kind of being groomed to be the next Nikita at the same time of having Nikita on the show, there’s a lot more happening in this reboot of it than what even happened in the original.

SJ: Does Michael get out in the field at some point?

SW: Almost immediately. Episode two. The pilot was kind of hilarious because there was a lot of confusion, as there is usually when you’re shooting just one episode. Everyone’s trying to do the best job and pray to God that it actually gets picked up. I remember being called to work at five o’clock in the morning a couple times for guns training. I went over to fire off guns and I went over the guys and said, “You realize I don’t even fire a gun in the pilot, right?” They’re like, “Oh. No.” I’m like, “Okay, I’m going to go back to sleep.”

SJ: What sort of crazy action will we see you do?

SW: As much as I can let out before them airing. You’ve got to understand Michael trained Nikita so he has to be pretty good at whatever he does. I have a scene where I’ fighting three guys at once that hopefully went well. I’ve got a great fighting scene with Nikita when we actually do come into contact again, that apparently came off well. We’ll see. I think we’re going to tease the audience a lot for as long as we can.

SJ: After “Once and Again” and “ER,” were you looking to do a TV series again?

SW: No. I’ve never put it past me to. I keep an eye out but I wasn’t planning on necessarily jumping onto a show. I’d been a couple years off of  “ER” and I had done six independent films in two years and was trying to just get work in the sense of trying to play characters that were making me older, now that I’m 32 and kind of building that resume for an adult rather than a young adult which I’d already done a long time ago. I think “Nikita” made itself stand out to me for several reasons. One being a fan of the original and also being a fan of McG and Danny Cannon. Once Maggie Q got cast, that was a huge selling point and the fact that they were going to give me the opportunity to play Michael, and the youngest version of Michael in all the renditions.

SJ: Have you done a series at each stage in your life: a young teen, a doctor starting out and now this?

SW: “Once and Again”  was my acting school and you can’t have a better one than with Ed Zwick and Marshal Herskovitz. We had a great three years on that and even “ER” was crazy because they gave me that opportunity to play a young doctor, a first year resident and I was like 27. It was exciting but I was kind of in shock. I was a first year resident. I had as much tenure as Maura Tierney who had been on the show for six years, but it gave me the opportunity to be the young adult. Hopefully this will transition even further. Now I’m kind of the second in command and the boss.

Oh good, another friggen vampire movie. But in all fairness, at least Priest takes place in the future, and to be honest, looks kind of awesome. "In a world wrecked by centuries of violent warfare between man and vampire, a warrior priest turns against the church in order to save his kidnapped niece from a homicidal gang of vampires." Between this character and the priest in Machete, I'm beginning to think the Vatican has launched some sort of PR campaign to make priests seem more like bad asses and less like effeminate child-molesters. Good luck with that. (Coming Soon) Watch the Priest trailer after the jump...

‘Operation: Endgame’ Red Band Trailer http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/operation-endgame-red-band-trailer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/operation-endgame-red-band-trailer/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Where in the hell did the movie Operation: Endgame come from?

Of course, most of the men are inept and the women are smokin' hot ass-kickers, but the jokes play.

Maggie Q is New ‘Nikita’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/maggie-q-is-new-nikita/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/maggie-q-is-new-nikita/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Extremely attractive Asian actress Maggie Q is in talks to play the title character in CW's reboot of Nikita. You might ask, "Ain't dat role usually for a white b*tch?" and I would answer you, "Yes, only a white b*tch has played Nikita in the past." Anne Parillaud first played the sexy assassin in Luc Besson's 1990 film, followed by Bridget Fonda in the inevitable American remake, and Peta Wilson in the 1997 USA series.CW and creator Craig Silverstein's take on the story is that a new Nikita is being trained to replace the original one after she goes rogue. I can understand your feelings of meh-ness at this concept, but let me squash that indifference by telling you I have read the pilot script and enjoyed it thoroughly. There's tons of action, hot slightly older assassins (Nikita), hot teenage assassins (new Nikita), and witty dialogue. I'd say it's very much like Alias, but I was never a huge fan of that show so I'll say it's like...a better Alias. The casting choice of Maggie Q really seals the deal for me though. She almost kicked John McClane's ass in Live Free or Die Hard, and I expect her to succeed on all fronts in her new endeavor. Also, on the show, she should wear a tight leather suit when she isn't wearing a tight leather cocktail dress. Just a suggestion for ratings gold. (THR)

Extremely attractive Asian actress Maggie Q is in talks to play the title character in CW‘s reboot of Nikita. You might ask, "Ain’t dat role usually for a white b*tch?" and I would answer you, "Yes, only a white b*tch has played Nikita in the past." Anne Parillaud first played the sexy assassin in Luc Besson‘s 1990 film, followed by Bridget Fonda in the inevitable American remake, and Peta Wilson in the 1997 USA series.

CW and creator Craig Silverstein’s take on the story is that a new Nikita is being trained to replace the original one after she goes rogue. I can understand your feelings of meh-ness at this concept, but let me squash that indifference by telling you I have read the pilot script and enjoyed it thoroughly. There’s tons of action, hot slightly older assassins (Nikita), hot teenage assassins (new Nikita), and witty dialogue. I’d say it’s very much like Alias, but I was never a huge fan of that show so I’ll say it’s like…a better Alias. The casting choice of Maggie Q really seals the deal for me though. She almost kicked John McClane’s ass in Live Free or Die Hard, and I expect her to succeed on all fronts in her new endeavor.

‘New York, I Love You’ Actress Maggie Q http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/new-york-i-love-you-actress-maggie-q/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/new-york-i-love-you-actress-maggie-q/#comments Fri, 16 Oct 2009 18:30:17 +0000 Defy Media Basically, Maggie Q is badass.  Not only was she a formidable foe for John McClane in Live Free or Die Hard, but never has a flak jacket looked so good on a female form.  She's the kind of woman who can make you putty in her hands with a single sultry glance, and then take your head clean off with a perfectly executed roundhouse kick.  It's a blend of constant arousal and fear that keeps a relationship fresh, and endless refills of your Xanax very necessary.        A word from Maggie: "Nigga please! I am not anorexic, I am petite because you can't get FAT from eating field mice and rice; hey that rhymes..."I have no idea what the above gibberish means but if came out of Maggie's mouth I'll take it as gospel.  I just hope she's moved beyond field mice as a source of sustenance.  'Cause doz field mice be naaaasty!Look at the antithesis of nasty after the jump!

Basically, Maggie Q is badass.  Not only was she a formidable foe for John McClane in Live Free or Die Hard, but never has a flak jacket looked so good on a female form.  She’s the kind of woman who can make you putty in her hands with a single sultry glance, and then take your head clean off with a perfectly executed roundhouse kick.  It’s a blend of constant arousal and fear that keeps a relationship fresh, and endless refills of your Xanax very necessary.

A word from Maggie: “Nigga please I am not anorexic, I am petite because you can’t get FAT from eating field mice and rice; hey that rhymes…”

I have no idea what the above gibberish means but if came out of Maggie’s mouth I’ll take it as gospel.  I just hope she’s moved beyond field mice as a source of sustenance.  ‘Cause doz field mice be naaaasty!

Look at the antithesis of nasty after the jump!
