An international trailer for THE GUNMAN has been released, providing us with a new look at the upcoming Pierre Morel (FROM PARIS WITH LOVE, TAKEN) directed action flick. Based on the Jean-Patrick Manchette novel The Prone Gunman, the film stars Sean Penn, Javier Bardem, Idris Elba and Ray Winstone, and will follow a former special forces soldier and military contractor suffering from PTSD (Penn) who must go on the run in order to clear his name.

"Let the real hunt begin!"

Does THE GUNMAN look like a TAKEN ripoff? A little. Is the plot pretty generic? Yup, but I'm not expecting Pierre Morel's new film to reinvent the action thriller genre. All I want is a fun movie featuring Sean Penn running, gunning and fighting all over the place, and it appears that's exactly what we'll be getting with THE GUNMAN.

THE GUNMAN is set to be released on March 20, 2015.

I think this looks like a lot of fun. The cast is all pretty amazing, and yes, it does have that '80s vibe with a bunch of man's men running around trying to kill each other. Not understanding the Taken rip-off comment. Yes, Pierre Morel directed both movies. Yes, Sean Penn, like Liam Neeson, is a bit long in the tooth to start playing the action star. But really, the comparisons look like they end there. It DOES look damn generic, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

If you don't care then don't comment. Otherwise it's pretty clear who cares.

I guess the more appropriate question was, why care?

Ah, that's different. I don't like Sean Penn for various reasons. However, I don't care enough to do any more than leave a comment here.
