New bone-crunching trailer for Brick Mansions with Paul Walker!

A new bone-crunching trailer has arrived for the late Paul Walker actioner BRICK MANSIONS, which is a remake of the 2004 French action flick DISTRICT B13. This version retains both screenwriter Luc Besson and original star David Belle, while adding Paul Walker and RZA into the mix. The parkour inspired stunts are still in effect for the remake, which looks suprisingly kick ass for it's genre. I mean, let's be honest, without seeing the trailers for this you would probably chalk it up to a direct-to-video yarn, but it's hard to deny the appeal when you see it in action.

Take a look:

Here's the synopsis:

In a dystopian Detroit, abandoned brick mansions left from better times now house only the most dangerous criminals. Unable to control the crime, the police constructed a colossal containment wall around this area to protect the rest of the city.  Undercover cop Damien Collier (Paul Walker) is determined to bring his father’s killer, Tremaine (RZA) to justice and every day is a battle against corruption.    For Lino (David Belle), every day is a fight to live an honest life. Their paths never should have crossed, but when Tremaine kidnaps Lino’s girlfriend,  Damien reluctantly accepts the help of the fearless ex-convict, and together they must stop a sinister plot to devastate the entire city.  With stylized action featuring thrilling Parkour stunts (David Belle is the co-founder of this physical training discipline), Brick Mansions puts an entertaining twist on the action genre.  

I really think BRICK MANSIONS has a shot at being a sleeper hit. It's sad and unfortunate that Walker's last works (both this and the upcoming FAST AND FURIOUS 7) would be some of his more engaging (minus the outstandingly cool RUNNING SCARED), but it's good to see his legacy live on in the wake of his tragic death. If nothing else, BRICK MANSIONS looks like a lot of fun and worth a watch on the big screen.

BRICK MANSIONS breaks into theaters on April 25, 2014.

If there's a category for remakes called "looks decently made but doesn't quite need to exist", this probably would fall into it. That's an interesting cover of Stand By Me and the trailer is edited pretty well. I'm glad David Belle is in this, Paul Walker doesn't seem terribly out of place next to him, it looks well-shot, but RZA is a consistently terrible actor. Also, when is a remake too different from an original, when is it too similar, and when does it walk that fine line? This looks

In normal circumstances this movie has bomb written all over it but with the recent events (Paul Walker), it will likely appeal to the masses.

The French District 13 was meh. The sequel was even more horrible.
I have a feeling this movie will reach the same levels of mediocrity.

Looks like alot of fun for being a remake. Story sounds good and the stunts looks cool. Can't really ask for more with a film like this.

A remake was inevitable, given that Americans can't read subtitles

and, given that, I'm glad that David Belle is returning. The stunts looks freakin' good and Paul Walker doesn't look out of place. The big problem, as Jedd noted, is that RZA can't act his way out of a paper bag.

But, given my druthers, I'll still watch DISTRICT B13.
