Red 2 Trailer Storms In
The CIA OAPs are back

Red 2

2010’s Red saw Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich and more having fun as retired agents dealing with a threat to their life. Now the oldies-but-goodies are back for more, this time with a European feel in Red 2. Check out the trailer over at Apple’s site.

This time around, Willis’ Frank Moses learns that there’s another contract out on him; Interpol has declared him its most dangerous target and everyone is gunning for him, even Victoria (Mirren), though we’re pretty sure that’s a feint.

Moses understandably decides to go on the run again, this time dragging girlfriend Sarah Ross (Mary-Louise Parker) with him from the start. He’ll need help from mad pal Marvin (Malkovich) and tangle with a few new problems, including Catherine Zeta-Jones’ sexy ex-girlfriend and Anthony Hopkins as a threat.

Dean Parisot has taken over directing duties for this one, replacing the first film’s Robert Schwentke. But the script’s still by Erich and Jon Hoeber, moving ever further away from Warren Ellis and Cully Hammer’s graphic novel (but then, let’s face it, the first film used all of that material up in the first act or so).

Red 2 will hit our screens on August 2.

Yay...
Loved the first movie to bits, it was terrific, unpretentious fun from start to finish. Bruce might want to lay off the sequels in 2014 though. More

OH DEAR!!!!!
The first instalment was a bag o' shite & this seems to be more of the same. It would seem that the World is FULL of investors looking to piss their money away. More

Sounds to be reprising her role from Ocean's 12. And what a great sequel that was. Hopkins as bad guy though. By Gruber!! More

I rather enjoyed Red and this looks like it will be just as good, especially with Hopkins. More
