Jean Reno’s 22 Bullets Finally Comes Stateside this November

If you’re a true Jean Reno fan, I suspect you’ve already seen Richard Berry’s crime pic “22 Bullets” (aka “L’immortel”). It’s only been out overseas for the last three years, after all. But hey, if you’re one of those latecomers, no worries, because Cinedigm is bringing the revenge thriller to U.S. theaters next month. Obviously we’re talking selected theaters here and nothing resembling a wide release, so sure to check your local listings and such.

Until then, here’s a new U.S. trailer fresh from wherever it is they cut U.S. trailers. I particularly like the line in the trailer about how, after being shot 22 times, our hero decides to forgive them anyway, but then they had to go and try to kill his FAMILY, too. Man, now that’s just not cool! (And oh, I reviewed the film way back in the ancient days of 2010. You can give it a read here if you’re so inclined.)

Charly Matteï has turned his back on his life as an outlaw. For the last three years, he’s led a peaceful life devoting himself to his wife and two children. Then, one winter morning, he’s left for dead in the parking garage in Marseille’s Old Port, with 22 bullets in his body. Against all the odds, he doesn’t die. This film is a work of fiction inspired by real-life events in the world of the Marseille mafia.

Starring Jean Reno, Kad Merad, Jean-Pierre Darroussin, Marina Fois, and Joey Starr.

Surviving selected U.S. theaters this November 8th.
