Repo Men Trailer Gets Bloody
Jude Law's here for your liver

23 December 2009  |  Written by James White  |  Source: MySpace

The first trailer for Universal's new sci-fi action thriller Repo Men has arrived online and you can see it in handy, embedded form below, assuming you're of the correct age (stop laughing).

The R-Rated promo means there's plenty of blood, guts, boobs and bad language for a film that feels like the organ donor scene from Monty Python's The Meaning Of Life via Repo! The Genetic Opera, but with 100% less singing.

We're in a near future world where human organs can be replaced fairly easily, but the cost of paying for them is crippling. Life-saving procedures require heft credit outlay and when the owners of new hearts/livers/whatever can't anymore, that's when the repo men are called in.

Enter Remy and Jake (Jude Law and Forest Whitaker), two of the best in the business. They're happy to trade quips and slice up delinquent organ owners, but things take a turn for the dangerous when Remy is injured in the line of duty, fitted with a new heart and then can't pay for it.



There's satire, gore and a few laughs here and there, and when the action ramps up, this one looks promising - even if it has been sitting on the shelf for a while. Oh, and you can check out the official site too, while the poster is below.

Like the look of this ...
... it may turn out to be crap but the trailer has raised my interest and Law & Whitaker are solid actors. As for the comments about it not being realistic in the fact that the US politicians have passed a law allowing such things to happen all I can say is "Come on, it's a movie, 70 % of movies have storylines that will never happen but that doesn't stop us watching!"

adult trailer - bout time
good stuff. want to like Jude Law too. he's a good actor but keeps being in shoddy films (or good ones where he's a bit rubbish) and sleeping with people he shouldn't. looking forward to seeing Sherlock soon - his Watson looks good and I always liked Nigel Bruce up until now! More

Jude Law in good role shocker!
This actually looks pretty good and has some good action and ideas in it and also Jude looks to have turned in a decent performance at lon, long last! He was good in Road To Perdition and a bit of a saddo in Closer but this is more like what he should be doing. Decent cast and this could be one of 2010's better sci-fi films More

looks like a pretty decent scifi. Like I Robot but without pulling the punches More

Yeah, totally agree that keeping Jude British is a step in the right direction. Trailer kind of gives everything away though, i actually feel like I've already seen it More

I like!
Not heard of this before today but I will definately be looking out for it when its released. Some might say it looks predictable but then so do many films. This has great potential. More

as much as i love forest, rza and jude, this film is surely utter garbage. kind of high concept sci fi nonsense that audiences don't relate to and so formulaic in the perpetrator being the one that gets the tables turned on him with eventually the big 'moral' bwecoming clear at the end. guaranteed to lose universal money. only minority report has got this kind of thing right in recent years More

Even in America where the almighty dollar comes before everything else, I seriously doubt that the politicians would pass a law that would entitle a private company to murder you in order to get it's merchandise back (especially since most politicians are of an age where they would require such procedures) And thumbs up to Jude Law, looks like he's picked a decent movie for once. (haven't seen Sherlock but I remain positive) More
