I’m always intrigued by what ends up becoming a viable movie franchise. Take the first “Red” movie 3 years ago for example. Who thought that movie was going to end up launching a franchise? Now we have “Red 2” coming next month. Who knows, if it does well, you might get a “Red 2” in another few years. It certainly looks like everyone in the film is having a blast playing a badass. Helen Mirren, for example, probably loves this franchise because it allows her to do something other than be proper and drink tea. Well, she does those things here, too, but she also has a machine gun.
Check out two new TV spots for Dean Parisot’s upcoming “Red 2”. It’s a blast. And a few explosions, too.
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, next-generation lethal device that can change the balance of world power. To succeed, they’ll need to survive an army of relentless assassins, ruthless terrorists and power-crazed government officials, all eager to get their hands on the technologically advanced super 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.
Starring Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Park, Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren, Caterine Zeta-Jones and Byung Hun Lee.
The boys and girls are back July 19th.
