I am still on the fence about The Rite. The newest trailer I saw looked alot better than the first. I just feel like how many different exorcism movies can you make. The idea and concept seems old to me. But I am sure the people in Hollywood that make the movies know a lot more than I do. Uh huh.
I also am not the biggest Anthony Hopkins fan. I think he is a very acceptable actor, but realistically he has been playing the same type of character since Hannibal Lector. Which just proves to me that the man is a genius who can convince any studio that his character will fit into any movie.
So strike one is Hopkins playing a similar character. Strike two is that the film has a release in January. Which is actually worse than getting released in September. Honestly, name me a great movie that was released in the month of January.
So this film is close to striking out. But like I said I liked the new trailer, and I like this new poster. Yeah there is a lot going on. But it’s got some creepy images on it. I guess time will tell. I am still willing to give the film a shot. It’s just real close to being a bust for me.
