David Ayer’s gritty cop actioner “Street Kings” opens in six days this Friday, and it looks like a hell of a movie if you like the kind of film that has little room for heroes, and a whole lot of room for guys who are very kind of shade, including cold-blooded killers. “Street Kings” looks like it doesn’t take any prisoners, and even Keanu Reeves’ stilted acting probably won’t dampen all the killing Ayer has put into this thing. (Check out the Red Band trailer if you haven’t seen it yet.) Straight up gangsta, as the kids would say. There are new images from the movie below.
Tom Ludlow, a veteran LAPD Vice Detective, sets out on a quest to discover the killers of his former partner, Detective Terrance Washington. Captain Wander’s, Ludlow’s supervisor, duties include keeping him within the confines of the law–and out of the clutches of Internal Affairs Captain Biggs. Ludlow teams up with a young Robbery Homicide Detective to track Washington’s killers through the diverse communities of Los Angeles. Their determination pays off when the two detectives track down Washington’s murderers and confront them in an attempt to bring them to justice.
Starring Keanu Reeves, Forest Whitaker, Hugh Laurie, Chris Evans, Jay Mohr, and directed by David Ayer.
