The first trailer for action thriller Brick Mansions focused on the setup and some of the set pieces. Now, with the second, we get more of a briefing on Paul Walker’s character and his mission in the run down city block-turned-drug kingpin kingdom.
Walker, who died last year, plays Damian Collier, the cop assigned to track down a missing neutron bomb that has been hijacked by the powerful Tremaine (RZA), the drug lord who rules the roost at Brick Mansions. And, as it turns out, Collier has a prior beef with Tremaine, as the criminal killed his father.
In order to get into the zone unscathed, Collier needs the help of the agile Lino (David Belle), a man with his own reasons for wanting to track down Tremaine and some nifty physical abilities to boot. Soon the pair are jumping, falling, bouncing, punching, kicking and shooting their way around the place. Oh, and driving, because why hire one of the stars of the Fast & Furious franchise and not put them behind the wheel of at least one car?
With producer/co-screenwriter Luc Besson overseeing this remake of District 13 and one of his protégés, Camille Delamarre, stepping up to direct, Brick Mansions will hit our screens on May 2.
