New Trailer: ‘The Rite’ is Very Real and Very Scary

Paranormal fans, rejoice! The very spooky trailer for The Rite has been released. The film is adapted from Matt Baglio's 2009 non-fiction book of the same title and follows an American priest's journey while studying at an exorcism school at the Vatican. Sir Anthony Hopkins stars as Father Lucas, playing opposite Irish actor Colin O’Donoghue as priest Michael Kovak. Swedish director Mikael Håfström is at the helm of this supernatural thriller set to hit US theaters January 28, 2011.

American audiences should recognize O’Donoghue from his portrayal of Duke Philip of Bavaria in The Tudors in 2009. The Rite also stars Toby Jones, Ciarán Hinds, and Brazilian-born actress Alice Braga. (The Metro)
