That’s right, another delay in favor of 3-D. Seems it’s the latest craze in Hollywood. I agree with what the writer said at the end of the article though, it does seem quite amusing of what it will be up against.
Sony Screen Gems has opted to push back the adaptation of Hyung Min-Woo’s “Priest.”
According to Superhero Hype, the new release date for “Priest” will be on May 13, 2011. “Priest” was originally going to be released this year on August 27, but was subsequently pushed back to January 2011 when it was decided that the film will be converted into 3-D.
Based on Min-Woo’s original manga series, “Priest” stars Paul Bettany as a renegade warrior priest who defies the church and teams up with a young sheriff (Cam Gigandet) and a priestess (Maggie Q) to save his kidnapped niece from a group of dangerous vampires. Karl Urban, Lily Collins, Steven Moyer, Brad Dourif and Christopher Plummer round out the cast.
“Priest” is directed by Scott Stewart (“Legion”), a former ILM staffer who replaced Andrew Douglas on the project.
Earlier this year, Stewart spoke with MTV News about how Min-Woo worked closely with him on the adaptation, even though the movie departs from the original story of the manga.

Sony Pictures is doing the old release date shuffle once again, and this time it’s Scott Stewart’s Priest that is getting the bump until later in the year. What a way to treat a servant of God!!!
We reported a while back that the flick was moved from August 20, 2010 to January 14, 2011 in order to have some additional time to punch up the film’s 2D to 3D conversion. Sony announced today, however, that the flick’s latest release date is now March 4th, 2011. Can they get it right? Only time will tell.
The film starring Paul Bettany, Cam Gigandet, and Stephen Moyer is an adaptation of a TokyoPop comic book that is set in a world ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampire. Bettany plays a warrior priest who turns against the church to track down a murderous band of vampires who have kidnapped his niece.
These vamps always take things so personally! Check out the first ever footage from the flick below, and look for more soon.

The opening night film, “Five Star Day,” stars Cam Gigandet (“Twilight”) as Jake Gibson, a young Berkeley student whose horoscope forecasts a perfect ‘Five Star Day’ the morning of his birthday. Little does he realize that what is foretold to be a flawless ‘Five Star Day,’ unfolds to be less than stellar as Jake’s world is turned upside down. All that could go wrong, does. Jake is fired from his job, walks in on his girlfriend sleeping with another man, and as if that’s not bad enough, gets carjacked that night.
Determined that astrology has no legitimacy, Jake embarks on a journey to test the theory of astrology by finding three people born at the same time and place as himself. Jake’s pursuit in finding and interviewing his three astrological matches not only tests his convictions, but validates how life’s unexpected twists of fate can deliver much more than anticipated.
Jake meets Sarah, (played brilliantly by Jena Malone) a young single mother struggling with the stress of her deadbeat ex-boyfriend, raising a daughter and keeping a job. Next, he meets Yvonne (Brooklyn Soldano), a nurse in a rehab clinic dealing with the guilt of a car accident she feels responsible for. Finally, he meets Wes (Max Hartman), a lounge singer in Atlantic City who takes him for a wild ride of a night. What Jake learns along the way is an important lesson about life, love, fate and destiny that will unexpectedly change his life forever.
The film’s premiere was a grand success, with all the seats of the Edwards Big Newport theater sold out to ticketholders.
“All of us who worked on ‘Five Star Day’ are deeply honored to be selected by the Newport Beach Film Festival and are still in shock to be opening the Festival,” said Mike Robertson, executive producer and producer of “Five Star Day.” “Having our World Premiere in our backyard was something we couldn’t have even dreamed of.”
Gigandet does surprisingly well in his role as the protagonist, although his good looks almost distract from his acting. The standouts in “Five Star Day” would have to be Jena Malone as Sarah and Max Hartman as Wes. Malone is so believable in her admittedly cliché role as a single mother trying to make ends meet to provide for her daughter. Hartman’s Wes, the Frank Sinatra-esque singer, makes for the most entertaining sequences in the film, as his character has more personality than all the others combined. Hartman’s wise, nonchalant portrayal is reminiscent of a less pompous, more drunken Orson Welles.
