Set during the aftermath of a human-versus-vampire war, Priest follows a former supersoldier (Paul Bettany) who comes out of retirement to rescue his niece (Lily Collins) from blood-sucking captors. For one scene in the action thriller, Bettany had to don a harness with wires and leap from a motorbike onto a train going 50 miles per hour. ”I thought, ‘This is really cool, f—ing terrifying, and a really weird way to earn your money,”’ says the actor, who also wielded daggers and a handful of ninja throwing stars for the role. ”It was amazing to be involved with a production of that size with that many toys.” —Bryan Lufkin
