If you like old people running around shooting each other and blowing stuff up, then you probably enjoyed the out of the hit action-comedy Red. I, for one, didn’t really care for it. Had it’s moments (pretty much everything involving John Fucking Malkovich!), but overall, I thought it was boring. Now, the sequel however, looks like a high-octane, wild ride!
Summit Entertainment has released a new trailer for director Dean Parisot’s (Galaxy Quest) action-comedy sequel Red 2. The spy follow-up pits ex-CIA operative Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) against Victoria (Helen Mirren) when MI6 greenlights his assassination as Interpol’s “Most Wanted.” The entire cast of the original are reunited, while bringing on some fresher blood in the form of Catherine Zeta-Jones, Lee Byung-hun, David Thewlis, and Anthony Hopkins. The latter of whom, looks hilarious!
I get nervous every-time Bruce Willis cracks a smile, but this look extremely entertaining. It’s like a funny version of The Expendables.
Here’s the official synopsis for Red 2:
In RED 2, the high-octane action-comedy sequel to the worldwide sleeper hit, retired black-ops CIA agent Frank Moses reunites his unlikely team of elite operatives for a global quest to track down a missing portable nuclear device. To succeed, they’ll need to survive an army of relentless assassins, ruthless terrorists and power-crazed government officials, all eager to get their hands on the next-generation weapon. The mission takes Frank and his motley crew to Paris, London and Moscow. Outgunned and outmanned, they have only their cunning wits, their old-school skills, and each other to rely on as they try to save the world—and stay alive in the process.
