Last month we got our first look at the trailer for The Rite, Warners and New Line’s exorcism movie starring Anthony Hopkins, Colin O’Donoghue, Alice Braga, Ciaran Hinds, and Toby Jone. In theaters January 28 from 1408 director Mikael Hafstrom, the (supposedly true) story centers on a disillusioned American seminary student who attends exorcism school at the Vatican and ultimately finds his faith through encounters with demonic forces. We’ve now got our hands on the first ever image that features Hopkins as Fr. Lucas facing Marta Gastini as Rosaria, while Colin O’Donoghue as Michael Kovak looks in on the scene. What’s going on you ask? Your guess is as good as mine.
“Inspired by true events, “The Rite” follows skeptical seminary student Michael Kovak (Colin O’Donoghue), who reluctantly attends 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 Hafstroem (“1408”), “The Rite” is a supernatural thriller that uncovers the devil’s reach to even one of the holiest places on Earth.”
