Street Kings Trailer

The recently renamed Street Kings finally has a trailer and I'm quite fond of the concept they use in it, setting it to some harsh music. Street Kings is directed by the same guy who brought us Harsh Times a few years ago, a movie that I personally hated. I hope it's not as bad as that movie, but maybe Keanu Reeves and a different script will help. The energy is high and the excitement is bursting from this trailer, but that doesn't mean it will be a big hit nor will it be a good movie, and I fear for the worst. Check it out for yourself and let us know what you think.

Tom Ludlow (Keanu Reeves) is a veteran LAPD cop who finds life difficult to navigate after the death of his wife. When evidence implicates him in the execution of a fellow officer, he is forced to go up against the cop culture he's been a part of his entire career, ultimately leading him to question the loyalties of everyone around him.

Street Kings is directed by David Ayer, who directed 2006's Harsh Times and wrote The Fast and the Furious, Training Day, and S.W.A.T. The script was written by James Ellroy, Kurt Wimmer and Jamie Moss. Street Kings arrives in limited theater starting on April 11th.

    Considering its being directed by David Ayer, I don't see this becoming extremely good nor bad. The three movies you listed are solid, with Training Day being terrific, so I this being 'okay' at worst. It will most likely be on the same level as SWAT, a 2 1/2 star movie.
  • Looks good and being a Fox Searchlight film makes it even better :)
  • Stephen
    Looks good to me, since it has House in it.
  • Curtis
    Looks like a good movie, well from the trailer anyways. Has a great cast, seems like it has a nice story. Im gonna keep my eye of this one, i liked S.W.A.T...
  • sixth
    Seems like a nice action-pumped movie....prolly a nice soundtrack too..finally reeves in an action role, and maybe a half decent one...
  • Spider
    Awesome for Keanu Reeves to come back to the action genre, a la "Speed". The trailer looks solid enough. Let's hope David Ayer impresses. "Harsh Times" was ok--to say the least, because of Christian Bale's performance.
  • Billy
    Looks good to me...Forest Whitaker as a cop? Yes please. Take me back to the good days of the Shield
  • conor

    Looks like a bad Steven Segal movie without Steven Segal.......
  • Darrin
    this looks good
  • pFox
    This movie looks pretty good. Hopefully its more like Training Day and less like Waiste thats kinda amazing that The Game would actually do a movie with Common...he hates on that dude.
  • Movie Lover
    Oh, I am so gonna see this movie. Sorry, Keanu is HOT. And that look on his face when he is pushing the fridge with the gun in his hand...? I'm drooling. From the girl perspective, this movie looks like a slam dunk.
  • john
    hash times was a killer flick. Keanu in no Bale , he may F**k this one up
  • Richard
    damn right john, harsh times was a great trip into a crazy individual, I liked it alot, and I cant agree more, Keanu is no Bale, hopefully this will turn out pretty good in the end, which isn't usually the case with movies involving rappers (... are those rappers?) in it lol.
  • prudence
    The trailer looks great! keanu in anything is good, but with this cast of characters, and the gritty action, I am keeping my eye on this one. Keanu and this music, it fits! Forrest Whitaker, and House" too! Looks like fun times.

    "Looks like a bad Steven Segal movie without Steven Segal……." Saying a Steven Segal movie is bad is pretty much the definition of redundancy. Anyway, I liked Harsh Times, I like action movies, and Keanu really doesn't bug me as much as some of you, so I 'll probably see this. Plus it's got Chris Evans, who I thought turned in a brilliant performance in Sunshine. As for the music being harsh...meh. (Or maybe I've listened to to much NIN.)

  • skolla
    what song is that in the beging???
  • Can't wait to watch this movie. I am a new Keanu Reeves fan...Thanks to his fans that told me to watch some of his movies. I started in November of last year. Okay I think he is Hot! but more than that. He seems like a great guy to hang out with as well. Sorry to hear of all the tragic things that happened to him. Losing his first born, the mother of his child, his best friend River Pheonix and growing up without his father and having his sister/best friend having to battle cancer. I am surprised that he was able to continue to make all the movies he has. I was so impressed with his performances in Devil's Advocate, Constantine, Matrix, Hardball, Walk in the Clouds and Sweet November and many more I have yet to watch in full yet. I would love to see him in a film on the big screen this time. I hope he can do well. I love the cast of this film but am not sure I can tell how it will fair by the trailer. I do not see much chemistry with Keanu's character love interest in the trailer. Hope it will be better in the film. Aitana and Charlize were great with him. Forrest Whitaker is alway good to watch and Hugh Laurie has great timing. Chris Evans is great to look at for the younger crowd for sure. And I think men in uniform are always great to look at. I do not know much about "The Game or Common but I read here that they are not "friends" by far. I also read today that "the Game" is in trouble with the law now. Keanu has one more movie out in December of this year and two more in the works. So Good luck Keanu with those.

    Here's a better and much longer trailer on the International Street Kings Official website. Check it out!
  • Me
    Hmmmm... I have seen something like that before, or I should say PLAYED, its very similar to a game called "MAX PAYNE" if you ever heard of it, almost same story: 1- Detective lose his wife 2- Accused of killing a police officer 3- and he is alone against all bad guys (as all movies) Maybe I am wrong, but either way the movie seems good
  • bman
    The song at the beginning of the trailer is... Put You On Game by Lupe Fiasco
