The first trailer has been released for Summit Entertainment’s comic adaptation, Red. It stars Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, Mary Louise Parker, Richard Dreyfuss, Karl Urban, and Julian McMahon. Red stands for Retired-Extremely-Dangerous and if anything, the trailer proves we should watch our backs around senior citizens. Check it out…
The story for Red centers on Frank Moses (Willis), a former black-ops CIA agent, who is now living a quiet life. That is, until the day a hi-tech assassin shows up intent on killing him. With his identity compromised and the life of the woman he cares for, Sarah (Parker), endangered, Frank reassembles his old team (Freeman, Malkovich and Mirren) in a last ditch effort to survive.
The film is based on the WindStorm Comics property of the same name that was created by Warren Ellis. The movie looks 10 times better than I thought it would so kudos to Robert Schwentke on his direction.
Who doesn’t want to see Helen Mirren shooting off massive rounds from an automatic weapon? What about John Malkovich doing what he does best: playing crazy? How about Freeman as a tracksuit wearing womanizer with a deadly aim? This is a project I can get behind!
Red hits theaters this fall on October 15, 2010.
