Paul Walker and David Belle Team up For Brick Mansions Trailer

Brick Mansions (2014) Movie Title Banner

I can’t help but get a little sad watching this very kick-ass, off-the-wall, and completely ludicrous trailer for Camille Delamarre’s “Brick Mansions,” the Luc Besson-backed remake of Besson’s on “District 13” French action franchise. The remake stars Paul Walker, and, well, watching him still in his prime in what will probably be a pretty good-sized hit is a little sad. This is one of those movies that will no doubt spawn a franchise. Or at least, it was.

Check out the first trailer for “Brick Mansions.” It’s as colorful and crazy as you might expect, so if you’re a fan of the original films, this is basically the same movie, but with a Hollywood gloss.

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. For undercover cop Damien Collier (Paul Walker) 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 drug kingpin, Tremaine (RZA) 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.

Parkourin’ it this April 25th.
