The Rite – new trailer

The Rite

Ooh I love a good exorcism flick, me. Or a bad one for that matter. Whether ridiculous or wonderful, there’s entertainment to be had from both. So colour me excited, if cautious about The Rite.

Warner Brothers have released the first trailer for the film, starring Anthony Hopkins and newcomer Colin O’Donaghue. Inspired by true events, “The Rite” follows skeptical seminary student Michael Kovak (Colin O’Donoghue), who attends, reluctantly, exorcism school at the Vatican. While in Rome, he meets an unorthodox priest, Father Lucas (Anthony Hopkins), who introduces him to the darker side of his faith.
Directed by Mikael Håfström (“1408”), The Rite “is a supernatural thriller that uncovers the devil’s reach to even one of the holiest places on Earth.

Oh yes, this sounds like nonsense of the highest water. As such, I can’t wait. I’m expecting it to be utterly risible, but you never know it could be a gem like The Last Exorcism. Either way, I’m sold…


The Rite opens in the UK on February 25th.
