PRIEST, 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.

Forthcoming SciFi Vampire Movie - Priest
Michele Hauf posted the trailer for the forthcoming vampire movie Priest over at VampChix today. A futuristic vampire flick based on a graphic novel with a terrific cast including Paul Bettany, Karl Urban, Stephen Moyer (True Blood), Christopher Plummer and Brad Dourif. The film releases May 13, 2011. Looks like my kind of picture.
