Jason Statham versus Clive Owen's mustache in the trailer for Killer Elite

Jun. 22, 2011by: Dave Davis

Jason Statham and Clive Owen have each demonstrated their competence for kicking ass, but in KILLER ELITE they're pitting that capacity for cinematic violence against each other.

The movie (unrelated to the 1975 Sam Peckinpah flick with James Caan and Robert Duvall) is based on a supposedly true story called "The Feather Men", and finds Statham as "an ex-special ops agent lured out of retirement to rescue his mentor (Robert DeNiro). To make the rescue, he must complete a near-impossible mission of killing three tough-as-nails assassins with a cunning leader."

Owen's villainous lip fuzz might seem a bit inconsistent with his badass stature, but the movie has a strong supporting cast (Mr. Eko!) and copious amounts of hand-to-hand combat. Check out the trailer below or in HD at Yahoo!

The two most badass guys in movies going up against one another is awesome. Also having DeNiro and Eko doesn't hurt. This is going to kick ass.

The lady is Yvonne Strahovski. You can find her in NBC's Chuck as well as her likeness and voice in Mass Effect 2. And she is smokin'.

Scorpions FTW

It'll probably have little to nothing in common with the book, but damn if that trailer doesn't please the senses.

what the heck does Statham say to Clive when he's tied up in the chair?

WOW! This looks totally awesome! This could be Deniro's comeback! I love the song they choose for the trailer. Reminds me of an 80's action flick!

No green until 'R' rating is confirmed. PG-13 would kill this film and all that is good in the world.

Looks awesome, although Im sure Ill be waiting for Statham to get his ass handed to him by Owen and it will never happen.

I am always down for these.

Sweet, Jason Statham is Jason Statham in Jason Statham Can Fight! Love the cast, but am I the only one who kind of hopes Statham stretches his talents out a bit more. I feel like every movie he is in is pretty much the same. I like Statham and I want to see him try something else. It might be an epic fail, but at least I can stop wondering. Here's to hoping for more "Lock, Stock" and "Snatch" Statham.

Awesome!

Excited to see Statham again and it will be interesting to see how Owen can handle being a baddie. I'm sure he will do awesome!

Looks cool. Statham is great, but has about as much range as Vin Diesel.

Really good trailer, except for the Rock Me Like A Hurricane song; it really didn't fit with the trailer

Looks like a generic Statham action flick

I mean, his films are good for what they are, I suppose, but he has yet to appear in a true, bonafide action classic. From the 28 positive comments I was expecting to be blown away by this trailer, but it looks pretty average in that regard. It appears to be another Mechanic or Transporter. His best headlining film is still The Bank Job.

And De Niro? Still taking the jobs to fund TriBeca, it seems...

Looks like a solid action flick. The cast alone is enough for me, and Statham versus Owen will be another great showdown, although, in the vein of kicking ass, I don't really think Clive Owen is in the same league as Statham.
