In life we ​​can rely on a few things. Death. Steer. And do Hollywood countlessnearly indistinguishable exorcism movies. Every year we seem to get two or three of these and even if they are good It’s hard to be happy because they always look the same. So it would make sense to see a title like The Exorcist of the Pope and roll your eyes. Yes, another movie about a priest fighting a child possessed by a demon. However, after watching the trailer, this movie at least seems like it’s trying to be different, and we’re intrigued.

Directed by Julius Avery (overlord) and based on the “current files of Fr. Gabriele Amorth, Chief Exorcist of the Vatican.” The Pope’s Exorcist Stars Russell Crowe as Father Amorth. A priest who, as you will see, sometimes feels that these possessions are best dealt with outside the home. Check out the trailer.

That’s a pretty good trailer and the reason it’s at least trying to stand out from every other exorcism movie isn’t the seeming reality of the stories, it’s the plot around it. The film almost looks like it has one Indiana Jones/Da Vinci CodeEnter secret in the middle Crowe’s character tries to solve the riddle this special property. We don’t even really see much actual “exorcism” here. It’s more about dealing with that bad situation and finding out the origins of that situation. Is this the reality of the film or are we being tricked? You can never tell, but the effort is there.

Also, surely the trailer makes it look like Crowe himself will become possessed and maybe ascend some kind of evil throne? Which, real or dream, is a fun little twist. All that is to say The Pope’s Exorcist Trailer has done its job. We were interested. What do you think?

The Pope’s Exorcist opens in cinemas on April 14th. Here is the cool poster.
