Summit has continued to roll out the character posters for the growing cast of “Red 2”. I suspect that by the time this franchise hits part 3 or 4, it might end up looking like the “Fast and Furious” movies, with 20 or so characters running around. That is, if the franchise still has legs after “Red 2”. I have my doubts about that. The first movie looked like a fluke to me, but the novelty of watching Helen Mirren with a sniper rifle has run its course by now, right? We’ll find out, I guess.
Check out four more character posters from Dean Parisot’s “Red 2”, featuring Catherine Zeta Jones (laying down on the job), along with the aforementioned Helen Mirren. The ladies are joined by two of the boys, Byung-hun Lee and Anthony Hopkins.
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 portable nuclear device. 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 next-generation 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.
“Red 2” also stars Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker, Brian Cox, and Neal McDonough.
