RED 2: First Look

Posted by Grey Tuesday, January 22, 2013

"Retired, Extremely Dangerous". And back in business this August. We take a First Look at the sequel to 2010 's RED, an action film based on the limited comic book series created by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner. 

Back in 2010, we saw the release of "RED," an action film with a somewhat quirky concept that met moderate success at the box office and mostly positive reviews with the critics. Apparently, that particular mix of success are perceived to be good enough to warrant a sequel. And like all Hollywood treatments, the sequel aims to be bigger and badder. Thus, as a result, "Red", the darkly endearing three-issue comic book mini-series created by writer Warren Ellis and artist Cully Hamner, has amazingly spawned yet another live-action adaptation of some sorts.

Directed by Dean Parisot, the director that brought us the impressive Galaxy Quest, RED 2 is set to pit former CIA operative Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) against his former team-mate, Victoria (Helen Mirren). In line with what we mentioned to be the "bigger and badder" theme, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Lee Byung Hun, David Thewlis, Neal McDonough, and Anthony Hopkins will be rounding up the cast.

With no further ado, hit the jump to check out the first trailer of the film.

The posters released thus far for the film.

Here's the official synopsis of the film: 

In RED 2, the high-octane action-comedy sequel to the worldwide sleeper hit, retired black-ops CIA agent Frank Moses reunites his unlikely team of elite operatives for a global quest to track down a missing portable nuclear device. To succeed, they’ll need to survive an army of relentless assassins, ruthless terrorists and power-crazed government officials, all eager to get their hands on the next-generation weapon. The mission takes Frank and his motley crew to Paris, London and Moscow. Outgunned and outmanned, they have only their cunning wits, their old-school skills, and each other to rely on as they try to save the world-and stay alive in the process.

RED 2 is currently scheduled to be released on August 2, 2013.
