Action-Heavy Trailer Debut for John Luessenhop's Takers
To offset that bad taste in your mouth from that poster this morning, Screen Gems has debuted the official trailer for Takers, the bank robbery action-thriller starring an eclectic cast of wanna-be action stars (who may or may not actually be good actors). I usually like a good heist movie, but this looks like a big dumb action flick, with way too much cheesy dialogue. It almost looks like a combination of The Italian Job and Fast & Furious, and not necessarily in a good way. I'm not entirely sure, I'll let you decide if this is worth watching, just because it's hard to really tell right now. So anyway, check out the trailer for Takers below!

Revolves around a notorious group of criminals (Idris Elba, Paul Walker, T.I., Chris Brown, Hayden Christensen, Michael Ealy) who continue to baffle police by pulling off perfectly executed bank robberies. They are in and out like clockwork, leaving no evidence behind and laying low in between heists.
Takers is directed by John Luessenhop, of only the prison drama Lockdown previously. The screenplay was co-written by Luessenhop, Peter Allen (Book of Swords), and newcomers Gabriel Casseus and Avery Duff. Screen Gems will be bringing Takers to theaters everywhere on February 19th, 2010, early next year.
