Watch This: First Official Repo Men Trailer Starring Jude Law
Universal has just debuted the first deliciously red band trailer for Repo Men over on MySpace. This is the Hollywood rip off of Darren Bousman's Repo! The Genetic Opera but without all of the singing. It's about a future where human organs can be manufactured to replace defective ones, but they're expensive. And if you don't make your payments, the repo men will come and rip out the organs right out of your body. Repo Men stars Liev Schreiber, Jude Law, Forest Whitaker, Alice Braga, Carice van Houten, and RZA. This trailer is red band and is pretty bloody, brutal, and gory (so watch out!), but it also looks pretty damn good.

Set in the future, the story revolves around a man (Jude Law) who struggles to make the payments on a heart he purchased. He must go on the run before said ticker is repossessed by the company that owns it.
Repo Men is directed by British first-time feature filmmaker Miguel Sapochnik, of only a short from 2000 called The Dreamer previously. This is based on Eric Garcia's novel titled The Repossession Mambo. The script was co-written by Garcia and TV writer Garrett Lerner ("Smallville", "Boston Public", "House M.D."). Universal is bringing Repo Men to theaters everywhere starting on April 2nd, 2010 next year. Thoughts?
