Bruce Willis brings his friends and trigger finger out of retirement in the trailer for Red

06.23.2010

I knew that when Warren Ellis' comic RED got adapted into a Bruce Willis movie, it would need to have the story fleshed out a bit. The three-issue miniseries was a tight but swift little espionage thriller about a retired CIA agent who finds himself wearing a bullseye because of the secrets still in his head.

I did not, however, expect the filmmakers to completely change the tone into a total screwball comedy about a whole gang of elderly ex-spies. But that's apparently what it is.

The movie comes from director Robert Schwentke (FLIGHTPLAN, THE TIME TRAVELER'S WIFE) and also features Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Richard Dreyfuss, Karl Urban, Brian Cox, Ernest Borgnine, Julian McMahon and Mary-Louise Parker.

Check out the teaser trailer below or in HD at Yahoo.

Cop out 2?? what the fu....

Don't know anything about the comic but I donīt like how it looks. It's time for Willis to stop doing these crappy action-comedies and do some serious action flick like HOSTAGE or MERCURY RISING. Or another DIE HARD, but HARDER.

Ok!

My faith in DC has been restored with this trailer. Looks amazing. Love how Hellen Miran is in it kicking ass. Never thought I would see her do something like this, bravo for her!

Looks like a Coen Bros. superhero movie!

This is by far the oddest cast I've seen in a DC film, but it still looks a hell of a lot better than The Losers and Jonah Hex.

PG-13?

God-fuckin'-damnit. And fuck you, trailer maker, for not givin' Karl Urban any love in the credits.

Holy Fuck!

I'm already standing in line for this one. What an awesome cast working together and watching Helen Mirren with a sub-machine gun was boner inducing.

And Bruce Willis vs. Karl Urban in a fight to the death is AWESOME!

Good trailer. Got all excited. Then my boner died when I read it will be edited down to PG-13. Bonercide is a serious crime so far committed by the producers of Die Hard 4, Jonah Hex, The Losers, and possibly the Expendables.

I know Expendables has been given an R rating, but there's talk of pressure from Lionsgate to cut it down to PG-13.

Fun...

I like the trailer, I dont care if its not sticking to the comic. It looks like the kind of movie I can walk into, and leave with a swell feeling.
Old people, guns, comedy.
I just watched Morgan Freeman do "Through the Wormhole" and when he sees the butt, its "Through the Butt Hole" for him.

Fuck. This.

When I heard they were making Red into a movie, I was happy. When I heard it would star Bruce Willis, I was happy. Watching the trailer, I have never been less happy. Did they even read the comic? Filthy fuckers.

A surprise hit!

I must say that looks like a lot of fun. It also has one of the best casts of recent years. Malkovich is perfectly suited for this kind of role a-la "Being John Malkovich." Now one of my top films to see. Something original too, well sort of.

Something about that looks appealing but the whole secret agent chased by CIA plot thing is just beat to death, big cast and comic adaptation or not.

That was awful. It wasn't funny, amusing, or exciting. Although, coming from the director of the utterly abysmal "Flightplan", I'm not all that surprised.

Well this cam out of nowhere for me. Looks brilliant. Despite the terrible little one liner at the end what is not to like about this one.
