I’m not giving up on director Scott Stewart. He burned me on “Legion,” which he’d sold me on at Comic-Con by telling me it was “‘Highway to Heaven’ with assault rifles” (unfortunately, a more accurate description would have been “‘Highway to Heaven’ with assault rifles that we won’t use very much”). But I must admit, I’m still intrigued by his follow-up, “Priest.” No matter that the following trailer from Yahoo! Movies makes very little sense (they’re priests and also…cops? And also the government? And also karate masters?). No matter that it looks like Paul Bettany is playing the exact same role as in “Legion” (instead of playing a renegade angel chased by his former employers he plays a renegade –SPOILER ALERT! — priest chased by his former employers). All that matters is that Bettany has a giant tattooed cross on his head and he throws cross-shaped ninja stars at Karl Urban while he’s riding on a motorcycle through the desert. Done. Here’s my thirteen dollars. I’ll see you May 13.
