A red band trailer has been released for the latest Jude Law film entitled, Repo Men. It’s a sci-fi thriller that’s based on the novel Repossession Mambo by Eric Garcia. The film version has Gattica, Total Recall, Aeon Flux, and Ultraviolet written all over it. We’re not sure if that’s a good combination, so we’ll let you be the judge when you watch the trailer…
The film takes place in a future where vital organs needed for transplant patients can be bought on credit. On the surface it sounds like a great solution to a horrible problem right? Wrong! If you can’t continue the payments on your new found heart, lung, or kidney they will send the repo men to get you. In this case Jude Law and Forest Whitaker are two of the top guys in the repossession business and their lives are about to be turned upside down when one of them is no longer the hunter, but the hunted.
After watching this trailer several times, I lost count of how many cliches were visible within the story. This movie is trying too hard with the build up between Law and Whitaker. They’re trying to make Law some bad ass superhero and he’s not cutting it. That superhero stance at the end of the trailer was overkill. And how the hell did Liev Schreiber sneak into this film, without anyone noticing? It looks like he’s playing the same character in Repo Men that he plays in that Angelina Jolie movie, Salt. Variety is the spice of life Liev, remember that.
The film is directed by Miguel Sapochnik, and is scheduled to hit theaters on April 2, 1010.
