Holy sh*t! Just look at these guys! They're the "Tremor Brothers" and they're going to kick some crazy ass, let me tell you. As Joe says, "These are the guys you send in when you don't want anything left standing, or breathing." I haven't even seen this movie and I can't stop building the hype and excitement for it! Smokin' Aces, coming out in theaters next January 26th. If you haven't seen the trailer yet, go watch it right now! It just looks intense and incredible. And the best of all is what the director (and writer), Joe Carnahan of Narc previously, is doing.
Basic synopsis: Buddy "Aces" Israel (Jeremy Piven), a former mobster agrees to testify against the mob and in turn a $1 million stake is put on his head. Who gets involved next? A plethora of hitman and woman who are all trying to take him out - and the "Tremor Brothers" above are one example of some of the badass hitmen. Reminder: watch the trailer!
Joe Carnahan has put up a pretty badass blog, right at www.smokinjoecarnahan.com, and has been updating it constantly. Any request you got, any questions you got, just fire away - he'll answer. CHUD.com has been running a promo to ask Joe your questions and he'll answer them right on the blog. And so far it's been going pretty awesome. I'm supporting this little shindig, his blog, and above all the movie quite a damn bit. It's seriously going to kick a lot of ass.
And lastly, oh hell yea, we're trying to get a few of these posters (above) to give out in our weekly poster contest. So stay tuned for all of that and plenty more to come on this amazing movie. Anyone have any thoughts? Who knows, if you write a comment I might give you an in early-on to win a poster once we actually hold the contest!
