legion trailer paul bettany Angels Love Weapons in Red Band Legion Trailer

At San Diego Comic-Con, Sony Pictures presented the attendees in Hall H with the very first look at their upcoming fantasy thriller, Legion. In the footage we got to see a ton of R-rated action combined with some creepy horror scenes, and a side of warrior angels.

What we saw looked interesting and its star, the talented Paul Bettany, looked amazing. Today, we finally have for you the full red band trailer for Legion which shows you some of what we saw in San Diego.

Watch and enjoy (if you’re of age):

As funny as this may seem, the intro of this trailer shows us the most normal look at Doug Jones we’ve seen in a movie! He plays the character known only as the “Ice Cream Man.”  I’m exaggerating about his on-screen appearances, but still, you may not recognize him from his real face (extended mouth or not), but he played Abe Sapien in the Hellboy movies and The Silver Surfer in the Fantastic Four sequel. I met him down there and he’s a great guy.

Notable call-outs from me: Kevin Durand looks awesome as Gabriel and the crazy mouthy demonic grandma was very creepy – that scene had a fun reaction with the audience at the Comic-Con panel.

This movie has my attention and it looks like a fun thriller with a great cast.

Legion’s story and direction comes from Scott Stewart with a screenplay by Peter Schink. The film stars Paul Bettany, Dennis Quaid, Kevin Durand, Doug Jones, Tyrese Gibson and Adrianne Palicki.

What do you think of the trailer?

If you dig this and/or like Paul Bettany, Scott Stewart and him are already at work on their next feature together which also happens to be religious-themed: Priest. Check out the Priest poster which was revealed for the first time at this panel as well.

Legion opens January 22, 2010.

    We must repsect the other fellow’s religion, but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children are smart.[Henry Mencken]

    See… just because I’ve quoted someone else doesn’t make the statement any more profound. ;)

  3. Well, if you don’t want people to laugh at your beliefs, you should’t have such funny beliefs :)

    OK, I’m done.

    No point in turning this into religious argument, you know that saying about arguing on internet and special olympics :P


  4. Yes, hence why I’ve stopped having internet arguments, after so many you realise what a colossal waste of time they are. :D

  5. Yeah, true :)

    Well, about the movie, i don’t know, might be worth checking out on DVD

  6. Must refrain from responding to huggybear …

  7. Ken
    he was obviously kidding. Talk about uptight! Get a life dude.

  8. Ken & Paul, I haven’t seen Horsemen yet, but you mentioning horses and Dennis Quaid made me think of The Long Riders. Saw it again recently and it’s still good stuff. Thought Quaid made a brilliant tubercular, wasted-looking Doc Holliday in Wyatt Earp, and how about Enemy Mine?

  9. Hm, adds a few movies to the Dennis Quaid que… lol. ;-)

  10. I just watched Inner space with Dennis Quaid again, it was one of my favorite movies when i was a kid :)

    Enemy mine also :)

  11. Just saw it. It does look kind of Carpenterish. But it doesn’t look like a movie I would be psyhched about, like Avatar. I would probably see it if I wanted to go see a movie and there was nothing else good to see.

  12. Straight. To. Video.

    What a piece of crap! Don’t tell me the whole vampire movie thing has washed through and now we’re back to ‘Angel’ movies again?

    Constantine meets The Day The Earth Stood Still.

    Nice analogy. Spot on.

  14. Dennis Quaid and that guy from tokyo drift. “interesting” cast.

    Uhm… this movie not only looks creepy, but just down right ludicrous. God desides to end mankind???? What?

  15. I’m in developing a movie somewhat similar to this.. but a completely different range story wise…been workin on this story for 4 years now perfecting it… I’m sicked to see wht they can bring to the big screen… although mines is highly controversial..tryin to tone it down so i dont piss anyone off… I hope that this will be nice file… you guys should check out this movie called Gabriel… went str8 to dvd… but i think it was a nice film for the budget tht they had..I’m a big fan of films and series like super natural and true blood.. and so on so i will give it a chance

  16. @LordThanosX

    Man, until you said “and so on so i will give it a chance” I thought you were confused and you thought you were posting on your facebook page or something.

  17. Wait this isn’t Facebook?! You lied to me Vic!

  18. @foopher
    “Dennis quaid and the guy from tokyo drift.”
    ‘that guy’ is from the second one not the third you’re thinking of bow wow

  19. It looks Terminator/Resident Evil/Matrix. Plus this fiction character we’ve come to know as god is getting real olld real fast concerning movies.

  20. Don’t people fear God? They should!

  21. No fear of God or whatever you call him here. This movie looks good and as a Supernatural fan I will check it out. There is no reason to fear your creator Darren I mean if we should fear him then we really got screwed on the the food chain didnt we :)

  22. LordThanosX,
    don’t screw up you movie ’cause it’s “contraversial”,screw those soccer moms who want life to be G!Dammit I’ve had enough!Also, I will camp out to see this movie.

  23. @noble – can you try that comment again? I’ve read it a few times now and it makes absolutely no sense.
