President Obama "narrates" a new TV spot for Red 2 starring Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, and Mary-Louise Parker

Jul. 10, 2013by: Paul Shirey

With the recent NSA "spying" craze going on, it was inevitable that Hollywood would catch on and make something of it. Fortunately, it's a tongue-in-cheek TV spot for RED 2 rather than a full blown movie adaptation. In the latest spot for the sequel which stars Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker, Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Byung-hun Lee, and Neal McDonough, the President of the United States addresses the covert operations of the nation's finest operatives (i.e. the "reds") over footage of them doing what they do best. And worst.

Take a look:

Here's the synopsis:

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, theyll 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 looks like some good junkfood for the brain and not much more. That's not a bad thing, either, as the original was the same thing. It's not going to change your life or become a classic slice of cinema gold, but it'll likely be fun and a good escape from the raucous slate of summer flicks already in the pipe. Or it could fail miserably. Either way, I doubt the NSA will be paying much attention.

RED 2 starts spying on theaters on July 19, 2013.

Also, here's an infographic on what it takes to be a "Red" agent in today's social environment:

Extra Tidbit: I much would've preferred a sequel to Galaxy Quest over Red 2 from director Dean Parisot, but it could be worse, right?

So glad he's able to get some time off from his job and other vacations to do things like this. It's reaffirming to me that he's using my money to enjoy his time off and shoulder up with his Hollywood pals. Spending time with your friends is important after all. Mother Frakker.

Not to push towards Obama one way or the other, but this ad was clearly edited. Shut up.

When I first saw the trailer of RED (RED 1 I mean), I was sad, the movie looked terrible and I imagine another comedy like COP OUT, another bad move from Willis. Then I saw the movie and loved it. But in this case Im afraid changing the director is not a good sign. Is the same case than KICK-ASS. There are not typical action-comic book movies, and directors visions were a very important part of the process. So now both movies got new directors, and dont know what the result could be. I really

I really wants R2 to be as good as first, but Im not a fan of Parisot work (never really dig Galaxy quest). The worst part is that REDs director release his new movie R.I.P.D the same freakin day!

That's a fun concept, it kinda reminds me of when they edited footage of Bill Clinton into Contact. Apparently, his people were none too happy about it.

The people giving you a thumbs down clearly can't see the obvious that Obama is making America worse. It is so freaking obvious, but he's pretty much a celebrity. You were at -3, but I have you a thumbs up.

Amen, brother! The White House was made for a white man to inhabit right? Kinda like your feelings on Johnny Storm and Michael B. Jordan.

Shake your head all you want, LovePump. I call it like I see it. The_Soloist has a pattern. You might want to watch how quickly you co-sign with him.

I'm pretty sure LovePump is shaking his head over you using the tired race card when someone doesn't support the current President.

Or maybe we just shouldn't discuss politics on a movie site? Anybody just think of that?

@Sigismundo. The_Soloist is a big boy. He can refute what I said at any time.

@moviemensch - easier said than done. Harvey Weisntein and a few others in mainstream Hollywood have done a very good job making President Obama part of movie "culture", business, or whatever you want to call it.
