Screen Gems have launched an interesting promotion – a mobile marker image on “Priest” standees in theaters. If you scan with your mobile phone using an app that you download on at, it will reveal a special sneak peek – namely the animated opening sequence from the film.

Said prologue has been created by acclaimed animator Genndy Tartakovsky (“Clone Wars,” “Samurai Jack”) and sets up the film’s post-apocalyptic future world where warrior monks are trained to tackle the vampire menace that plagues the lands outside the fortified walls of a massive city.
