Armored Trailer

Sony has debuted the first trailer for a new heist thriller called Armored starring Columbus Short, Matt Dillon, Jean Reno, Laurence Fishburne, Milo Ventimiglia, and Skeet Ulrich. I love a good heist movie and from the looks of it, Armored should be quite entertaining. It seems to be both a bit comical and a bit thrilling, and I'm not opposed to that kind of mix, especially with the cast that they've rounded up. It really does look like some solid early fall entertainment. I'm not sure about Nimród Antal's directing just yet, but at least it has the cast and it has the story, and that's what counts the most for now. Check this out below!

A crew of officers at an armored truck company risk their lives when they embark on the ultimate heist… against their own company. Armed with a seemingly fool-proof scheme, the men plan on making off with a fortune. But when an unexpected witness interferes, the plan quickly unravels and all bets are off.

Armored is directed by Hungarian filmmaker Nimród Antal, of the award winning film Kontroll as well as Sony's Vacancy previously. The screenplay was written by first-time writer James V. Simpson. Screen Gems will be debuting Armored in theaters everywhere on September 18th later this year. Anyone interested?

Cool. I just had an idea today when I saw a armored truck for a movie just like this!! Crazy!

I'm really unsure on how this will turn out... but the trailer has me looking forward to it.

This looks good i'll probably see it

Columbus Short is coming into his own!

CW on Apr 16, 2009


holy crap! SKEET ULRICH is the awesomesist name ever. I agree, with this cast and this story, the directing is completely irrelevant until the movie is released. I'm not sure about this director either. A foreigner telling a story about how bad US banks are? Maybe he should have made a movie about Hungaria's banks first? I'm sure they're hands aren't clean in all this! I mean, don't get me wrong, I don't like the idea of a big bank taking away the house of a working man, especially since his job is keeping all their money safe, but even so...

I love how the directors name is Nimrod

????? on Apr 16, 2009


It's great to see a good cast in a good low-budget action. Didn't know you could still do it!

@6 "I'm not sure about this director either. A foreigner telling a story about how bad US banks are?... I mean, don't get me wrong..." Actually, you got you wrong. The director was born in Los Angeles and is American.

Looks entertaining. Solid cast. I really enjoyed Columbus Short on Studio 60, he's a good actor.

Rick on Apr 16, 2009


Dillon Vs. Short. Loverly.

Fisherr on Apr 16, 2009


Was that a 2.5 minute film, I don't think I'll even bother watching it when it's on cable, do they make these trailers for idiots who need to know exactly and by exactly I mean exactly what to expect before going to the cinema?

Crapola on Apr 16, 2009


I like heist movies, so I'll give this a look. Can't go wrong casting Jean Reno either. He's a solid actor.

Chuck Norris on Apr 16, 2009


Well, It looks pretty mediocre to me. Like one of those "Ooh! Big "Ocean's 11" twist at the end" Kinda movies that think they are being smart and clever by having some "Twist ending". I'll probably see it, but it does not look that special though.

great cast and great action..........i won't miss this one.

dan on Apr 16, 2009


The director previously made Vacancy. LOL. Think I'll pass on this one.

Jonny Diamond on Apr 16, 2009


This looks pretty damn good.

Terry B on Apr 16, 2009


This looks awesome! I'm getting realy tired of all the smug Ocean's 11-style perfectly executed heist movies - this film looks to be giving the genre a shake-up. The trailer is freaking intense, and the cast is superb. Really looking forward to it.

VW on Apr 16, 2009


Sweet, Short seems to becoming a great actor!

Xerxex on Apr 16, 2009


did someone say skeet?

Roberto Dinamite on Apr 16, 2009


This looks really badass. I love Dillon and Fishburne.

T9000 on Apr 17, 2009


that "fast and furious"-like font kind of screws it

rocken on Apr 17, 2009


Ventimiglia is surely going to ruin it for me.

captain subtext on Apr 17, 2009


Wow, they gave away everything... what a fucking dumb trailer man. It's like all the mainstream reviews of late giving away movie plots.

Johnny Neat on Apr 17, 2009


This looks really good!...I will check it out

Trey on Apr 17, 2009


Jean Reno, excellent. Too bad the movie doesn't look that great.

Syphous on Apr 17, 2009


I love how they basicly spoiled the whole movie in a single trailer.

Reddy on Apr 17, 2009


They give away too much in the trailer, but I love Fishburne and Ulrich, so I'll go see it.

josh on Apr 17, 2009


Looks like a streamer............................

bull shit trailer for a bull shit movie

DoomCanoe on Apr 17, 2009


spot on #13 i hate trailers that show us nearly the entire movie.

Matt Suhu on Apr 17, 2009


@ #6 Ha ha, you crazy Americans make me laugh "Hungaria". You lot really don't know shit do you.....

Gump on Apr 18, 2009


I agree with 29, another case of a trailer giving you the whole friggin movie

movie buff on Apr 18, 2009


i dont know how you all keep saying they show too much in this trailer, i mean what else were they supposed to show? its not like they showed the ending, and you have no clue if they showed a lot or not until you watch the actual movie, so chillout

WhoKnows on Apr 18, 2009


Jean Reno and Laurence Fishburne this is a movie I have to see.

Mike on Apr 18, 2009


I really hope the trailer didn't show most of the movie because this looks very cool.

Tristan on Apr 18, 2009


Wow! This looks cool!! Lets hope Nimrod Antal kicks some ass this time after the Vacancy nonsense.... which was a huge letdown after the brilliant Kontroll!!

Deboo on Apr 20, 2009


James V. Simpson wrote the script. It's his story they're making it from... I read an early draft a while back. Expect an intense film in the vein of HEAT.
