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