Apparently Open Road Films is going the “give them new images a day” route with their promotion of the Jason Statham, Clive Owen, and Robert De Niro actioner “The Killer Elite”. After doling out two images of Statham and De Niro yesterday, today finds UGO with two more new images (plus two more released by Open Road), featuring Statham and Owen going head-to-head. Or, actually, Owen’s gun going to Statham’s head. Check them out below.
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).
Also starring Yvonne Strahovski, Dominic Purcell, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Grant Bowler, Michael Dorman, and Ben Mendelsohn. Directed by Gary McKendry and due out September 23rd.
