Jason Statham is back and he’s blowing more sh*t up with the help of his sidekick Ben Foster. The British actor stars in the upcoming remake of the seventies action flick The Mechanic. Over at IGN, they got first dibs on the new red band trailer for the movie that’s filled with explosions and plenty of gun play. Take a look…
In The Mechanic, Arthur Bishop (Statham) is an elite assassin with a strict code and unique talent for cleanly eliminating targets. It’s a job that requires professional perfection and total detachment, and Bishop is the best in the business. But when his mentor and close friend Harry (Donald Sutherland) is murdered, Bishop is anything but detached. His next assignment is self-imposed – he wants those responsible dead. His mission grows complicated when Harry’s son Steve (Foster) approaches him with the same vengeful goal and a determination to learn Bishop’s trade.
We have a soft place in our hearts for the original version of this movie, but we like Statham and we love Foster. We might give it a chance.
The Mechanic is directed by Simon West and is scheduled to hit theaters on January 28.
