Early this afternoon I got a phone call by none other than Tony Timpone! As a long time Fangoria fan you have to understand the weight that name carries, and for him to be calling for me?! Little ol’ Matt D.
The best part is he called me to invite you (The Forbidden Planet Fanbase) to a FREE special event for the upcoming film Priest. Director Scott Stewart and star Paul Bettany will be there to give you an exclusive look at some mind-bending 3-D material. Giveaways and free refreshments, what more could you ask for?
Here are the details on how you can get tickets to the event.
“This special Fango night will be a free presentation; to obtain tickets, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Written by APOLLO 18’s Cory Goodman and based on the graphic novel series of the same name by Min-Woo Hyung, PRIEST is set in an alternate world—one ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampires. The story revolves around a legendary Warrior Priest (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 of THE BLIND SIDE) 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 (TWILIGHT’s Cam Gigandet), a trigger-fingered young wasteland sheriff, and a former Warrior Priestess (NIKITA’s Maggie Q) who possesses otherworldly fighting skills. PRIEST co-stars STAR TREK’s Karl Urban, CHILD’S PLAY’s Brad Dourif and TWIN PEAKS’ Mädchen Amick, along with TRUE BLOOD’s Stephen Moyer and WOLF’s Christopher Plummer. See the article in FANGORIA #303, on sale this month. PRIEST opens nationwide on May 13. You can see the official website here http://priest-movie.net/.
