New Poster, 3 TV Spots for New Line’s Exorcism Flick ‘The Rite’

One of the year’s first horror films arrives in theaters January 28 from New Line Cinema. From 1408 director Mikael Hafstrom comes The Rite, the latest exorcism-themed horror flick starring Anthony Hopkins, Colin O’Donoghue, Alice Braga, Ciaran Hinds, and Toby Jones. Inside you’ll find the final one sheet and first 3 TV Spots for the flick that tells the story that follows skeptical seminary student Michael Kovak (O’Donoghue), who reluctantly attends exorcism school at the Vatican. While he’s in Rome, Michael meets an unorthodox priest, Father Lucas (Hopkins), who introduces him to the darker side of his faith, uncovering the devil’s reach even to one of the holiest places on Earth. Do notice the poster exclaims “inspired by true events,” which basically means it a complete fabrication of another tale. Hence the word “inspired”. Sh*t, I could say this story inspired me to eat a bowl of Fruit Loops, and while it may be true, it’s also completely ridiculous. Point proven? I hope…
