Law Abiding Citizen Trailer

Whoa, I did not see this coming! The trailer for F. Gary Gray's Law Abiding Citizen starring Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx has debuted on Entertainment Tonight (via Normally they re-edit and screw up the trailer, but this time they have a clean embed of the trailer, even though it's a lot smaller than I'd like it. This is another one of those revenge stories, but you just wait, it starts to get a bit interesting part of the way through. I don't know why, but I wasn't expecting anything special - boy was I wrong! This looks awesome, I can't wait to see how it plays out and what the heck is even going on!

    Looks great and it's cool to finally see Butler as the villan. I'm tired of seeing him in all these corny romantic comedies and this should deffentially bring him back on track. Great cast too.

    holly fuck this is some cool shit
  • Big Red Moose
    Looks fantastic. Probably going to be one of the most underrated films next year. Reminds me a bit of Death Race meets The Jackel meets Face/Off meets Saw. I am very excited, let's just hope they execute.

    Wow, a shiver went up my spine the shot of Butler after Foxx said "The deal is done, I'm sorry." That expression on Butler's face is just amazing to see.

    Loved it, but I think a little too much was shown in the trailer, but I'll forgive it, because it looks awesome, Glad to see Butler doing some good guy/bad guy/anti-hero role.

  • Jon Johnson
    Holy macaroni!
  • Matthew
    TWO THINGS #1 - Anytime you can use the line, "It's going to be biblical." and it sounds badass, I'm so there. #2 - The shot at the end of the trailer was sweet.
  • Zac
    This does look awesome. I'm a big fan of Butler.
  • mangelo
    he's not an everyday guy right? halfway through it says somethin like he was a spy that's a dime a dozen
  • Shemah
    Awesome, awesome trailer!! Came back for more, but apparently the vid has been taken down by ETOnline perhaps? (???) Anyways, killer movie and I can't wait to watch it!!
  • Dee
    Jamie picked the wrong sidekick to go up against Gerard "Rape your Life" Butler. He's the one that let the Joker escape after they had him captured.
  • Shemah
    Thanks for putting it up again, Alex!! :) It's great to see Gerard Butler back in the action zone.. instead of those rom coms! I've totally marked my calendar for this one! Sweeet!

    Nerve racking, definitely a movie for the guys. Pleased the acting roles were changed and we see many sides of Gerry but do not know if I will survive the movie.
  • Khalil7
    This looks great! I can't wait. They did show quite a bit for a trailer. I hope that means that there is a wicked twist towards the end.
  • Malcolm
    Sorry, sick of DIVA FOXX, sick of Quaid, getting tired already of Butler - there is a thing called over exposure you know - and I'm so, so, sick of that overrated, hyper lucky Worthington guy, who is not even in this but yet, I'm over him, his crappy American accent, dopey Aussie accent and his foul mouthed, Foxx inspired diva-ness.
  • Sally
    Dexter: The Motion Picture.
  • Pikey Chav

  • Sam Worthington Must Die
    Aaah. So, why did you kill your wife and kid then......?
  • scmglove
    I can't agree more with post #17. I don't think I've been this excited to see a movie in a very long time.
  • Mr.Big
    Looks great, with that corny name i almost didn't watch trailer. I'm glad i did.
  • ?????
    Holler at Philly! This looks like complete craziness!
