In our favorite (and most exciting) Priest trailer yet, we get more than a kaleidoscope of action cuts—we get an extended fight sequence in which Paul Bettany takes on a band of some pretty gruesome vampires.

But before you dive into that, as a reminder of what the movie's all about, here's the official synopsis:

Priest, a post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller, is set in an alternate world -- one ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampires. The story revolves around a legendary Warrior Priest (Paul Bettany) from the last Vampire War who now lives in obscurity among the other downtrodden human inhabitants in walled-in dystopian cities ruled by the Church. When his niece (Lily Collins) is abducted by a murderous pack of vampires, Priest breaks his sacred vows to venture out on a quest to find her before they turn her into one of them. He is joined on his crusade by his niece's boyfriend (Cam Gigandet), a trigger-fingered young wasteland sheriff, and a former Warrior Priestess (Maggie Q) who possesses otherworldly fighting skills.

Priest will premiere May 13, 2011.
