There be lots of fightin’ and jumpin’, and fightin’ while jumpin’ in director Camille Delamarre’s sorta-futuristic (though not really) actioner “Brick Mansions,” if these 8 new images are any indication. For you cool kids out there, it’s called parkouring (and no, it has nothing to do with eating pork). For the rest of you old fogeys, it’s very fit looking dudes jumping and fighting and jumping some more. Either/or.
Please to take a gander at the new images below, take a ganderers.
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.
Starring Paul Walker, David Belle and RZA.
