Bruce Willis, John Malkovich & More Return In ‘Red 2’ Teaser


Red to me was an unoriginal and generic action film that simply took stars we’ve grown to love and made them into old farts trying to be tough and bad-ass yet again. The problem with that is guys like Bruce Willis are still bad-ass in their own rights, but not when we’ve got to see them shop for groceries and complain about their old age, before suddenly watching them engage in a shootout with 20 plus armed men.

It’s ridiculous and sort-of the point of these Red films and I can’t stand it one bit. Red was daunting task to sit through and now Red 2 looks to be more of the same, minus Morgan Freeman and plus Anthony Hopkins.

Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren and Mary Louise-Parker are returning for this second go, plus Byung Hun Lee and Catherine Zeta-Jones (was she in the first film, I don’t even remember!)

Watch the uninspiring firstĀ  trailer below:
