The chemistry between these characters was brilliant the first time around, and that has me excited for what’s still to come. We saw an awesome first full-length trailer a few weeks back. And with its mid-July US release date fast approaching, Summit have released two great new TV spots to help get us back in the right frame of mind.
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.
Mary-Louise Parker, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, and Brian Cox return alongside Willis. And they’re joined by franchise newcomers Catherine Zeta-Jones, Anthony Hopkins, Lee Byung-hun, Neal McDonagh, and David Thewlis.
Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest, Fun with Dick and Jane) is directing from a script once more co-written by brothers Erich and Jon Hoeber.
RED 2 will be released in the US next month on July 19th, and will follow a little later in the UK on 2nd August.
