Killer Elite Trailer: Statham and De Niro vs. a Mustachio’d Clive Owen


Lots of explosions, bullets flying, and Jason Statham punching people. Plus, Clive Owen sporting cinema’s most awkward looking mustache. Check out the teaser trailer for Gary McKendry’s “Killer Elite”, which is supposedly based on a true story. Or true-ish, anyway. Regardless, it looks like moderately fun times, and the whole thing actually looks like an ’80s action movie, right down to the Scorpions’ “Rock You Like a Hurricane” on the soundtrack.

Based on a true story, Killer Elite races across the globe from Australia to Paris, London and the Middle East in the action-packed account of an ex-special ops agent (Jason Statham) who is lured out of retirement to rescue his mentor (Robert De Niro). To make the rescue, he must complete a near-impossible mission of killing three tough-as-nails assassins with a cunning leader (Clive Owen).

Starring Jason Statham, Robert De Niro, Clive Owen, Yvonne Strahovski, Dominic Purcell, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Grant Bowler, Michael Dorman, and Ben Mendelsohn.

Getting their elite killin’ on September 23, 2011.

    The trailer was great.

    Statham, Owen and DeNiro in one film, that’s going to be awesome.

    I hope the film turns out to be great.

    Damn, can’t wait to see DeNiro being bad-ass again (hopefully). And all this time, I thought this was a remake of the Sam Peckinpah flick
