Killshot Trailer

The Weinstein Company debuted another new trailer for Killshot just last night, but unfortunately it's not going to make much of a difference. Killshot is another one of those movies that has been delayed for years. It was originally supposed to be in theaters in 2006, but then The Weinstein Company started delaying and the next we know, it was 2008 and they still hadn't released it. It's now slated to hit a few theaters on January 23rd before being pushed to DVD within a few months. And unfortunately this trailer doesn't make it look that great, despite the appearances of Mickey Rourke, Thomas Jane and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Watch the second new trailer for Killshot:

[flv: 480 216]

Beautiful Carmen Colson (Diane Lane) and her ironworker husband Wayne (Thomas Jane) are placed in the Federal Witness Protection program after witnessing an extortion scheme go wrong. Thinking they are at last safe, they are targeted by an experienced intimidating hit man and a psychopathic young upstart killer. The ensuing struggle will test Carmen to the limit.

Killshot is directed by Oscar nominated English filmmaker John Madden, of Ethan Frome, Shakespeare in Love, and Proof previously. The screenplay was written by Hossein Amini, of The Four Feathers previously, and is based on Elmore Leonard's best-selling novel of the same name. The Weinstein Company is finally bringing Killshot to limited theaters on January 23rd. It will probably be on DVD soon thereafter.

    I'd see it just because I like Joseph Gordon-Levitt's acting. Looks interesting enough though.
  • Curtis
    im down never heard of this before but it looks pretty good great looking cast as well.
  • pete
    solid cast not the best trailer
  • BahHumbug
    Surprised so few have heard of this before, I guess not everyone looks at the release schedules like myself. I'm not impressed by either trailer but in John Madden I trust.

    Diane Lane is in this and has quit showbusiness over the delays and studio politics regarding this movie. Elmore Leonard himself rates it. Also, Johnny Knoxville was in it. All his scenes were later cut and reshot with another actor. Diane Lane and Mickey Rourke are supposed to be very VERY good in it.
  • I just finished reading the book. The book is phenomenal and has me pumped for this movie. For anyone who has read the book the ending is the only disappointing part. Not that it wasn't good, it was just rushed and after reading 400+ pages you would rather read a few more. I must say the book isn't anything new, a standard crime thriller, but it is still not bad at all.

    Ahh he should stick to football.

    Looks pretty solid, but I personally wouldn't see it in the theaters.
  • dan
    this looks pretty good. doubt i'd buy it but will put it in my netflix queue.
  • Spider
    #9 Same here Dan. Although it's chances for a theatrical release seem slim, I've already saved it in my Netflix queue!
  • Darunia
    Such a cool cast. Joseph Gordon-Levitt looks awesome in this.
  • Kris
    Don't know why everyone is trashing this movie..looks great to me..especially after seeing the second trailer. Diane is beautiful in anything she does!!
  • The trailer seemed decent if a bit slow. Overall it looks good. And I expect I'll end up seeing it in theaters.
  • AJ
    Superb book, so I'm definitely in on this one! Sounds like another case of Weinstein politics ruining the chances of a good movie?
  • dom
    How is this not exciting! Either that or your trying to spark a response, looking for people to blog on here.. hmm Go Joseph Gordon-Levitt, this guy has some great talent!
  • Fisherr
    Wasn't expecting an "Unexciting" trailer like the one i just saw for that movie.
  • Squiggly
    Doesn't look bad at all. I might go see it if they actually release it this time. Since one of the stars just won a Best Actor award, tho, I'm guessing they'll actually release it this time.
  • Ehh low budget with big names is all. Straight to DVD it should go.
  • Syphous
    I dunno, doesn't look bad. Just doesn't look like anything worth going to the theaters for.
  • JAB
    What song is in this trailer that's also in the Marine Corps commercials?
  • zach s
    looks cool, could be good, seems like solid acting and an ok spript, interested to see it.
  • Film Fan
    The trailer looks pretty damn exciting to me. Great cast too. So, count me in. And Joseph Gordon-Levitt just keeps getting better with age.
  • Cody
    good plot awesome cast needs a better trailer...but i think this is gonna be good
    I'd watch but it looks like direct to vhs material.
  • movie buff
    Weird, i have memories of seeing this movie, how is it only being released on dvd soon? how did i see it? i definitely saw it, weird
  • Corey
    Going to have to pass on this. :/
  • Short
    Part of this movie was shot in my home town of Cape Girardeau, so I would love to see it. Unfortunately its not getting a general release and that sucks...whole town wants to see this one.
  • neonblue
    ummmm???? yeah eigther good film or bad trailer
  • Jay
    Joe Gordon-Levitt looks great, I want to see it because of him, he's great actor and good in everything he does.
  • batzerga
    After watching the movie all i can say is that it's one of the best thrillers released in the past years. Great performances from both D.Lane, M.Rourke, J.G.Levitt and T.Jane give an pure example of how a great movie can be done without the use of milion $ costing special FX.
