trailer break: ‘Red’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

Oh, wow. Helen Mirren is just totally bad-ass, ain’t she?

This looks a helluva lot better than The Expendables, which appears to be working from a similar idea. But it doesn’t have Mirren, for one. That was their first mistake.

Red opens in the U.S. and Canada on October 15; no U.K. release date has been announced.

    Awesome cast! Looking forward to this one.

  • I vote we make Helen Mirren the new Chuck Norris.

    I watched this trailer yesterday for the first time and the words ‘Helen Mirren’ ‘bad ass’ popped into my brain as soon as that brief snippet of scene appears.

    I don’t care if this movie is terrible, I’m going to go see it anyway.

    I agree about Helen Mirren…especially since she isn’t an extreme right wing nut-case (I hope).

  • This looks like way more fun than The Expendables. yay Helen Mirren, action hero! B)

  • Ben

    This movie is based on a comic book by Warren Ellis… although from the trailer you wouldn’t know it since the comic is dark, gritty, brutally violent and quite serious. But as Ellis says “if you don’t want to see a film with Helen Mirren with a sniper rifle, I’m not sure I want to know you.”

  • Space Cowboys and Cowgirls–meets Three Days of the Condor–or something like that. And Mary-Louise Parker as the “young chick” on the team. I just love the irony after two or more years of Hollywood movies designed to make women over 30 seem like beings from another planet.

  • New Waster

    The comic was serious, sad, brutal and short, too short to translate into a feature length film. The adaptation barely resembles the source material at all, but I don’t mind that much. It looks like it could be fun, and hopefully Warren Ellis got paid a shit-ton of money for the rights.
