Jason Statham's The Mechanic

Someone has to fix the problems. CBS Films has unveiled a teaser poster on Moviefone for their upcoming gritty action flick The Mechanic, a remake of the 1972 Charles Bronson film, starring badass actor Jason Statham as well as Ben Foster (as his new apprentice), Donald Sutherland and Mini Anden. We featured a promo trailer back in March that has since been pulled, but I expect we'll see a real trailer soon as this is due in theaters in January. This kind of gun-filled poster design isn't really unique to see anymore, but it is better than slapping some floating heads on a boring background. We'll let you know when the trailer drops!

The Mechanic Teaser Poster

An action-thriller centered on an assassin (Jason Statham) and a young man who becomes an apprentice.

The Mechanic was directed by British filmmaker Simon West, of memorable blockbusters like Con Air, The General's Daughter, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, and When a Stranger Calls. The screenplay was written by first-time feature writer Karl Gajdusek, whose only other writing credit is for the TV show "Dead Like Me". This is a remake of The Mechanic from 1972 starring Charles Bronson and directed by Michael Winner. The Mechanic was picked up by CBS Films and will arrive in theaters starting on January 28th early next year.

Wow, I'm getting a gun boner just looking at it.

I really like the feel and concept, although I think it would have been cool to see all the gun silhouettes making the shape of a wrench or another mechanic's tool. Not knowing much about this film's synopsis or the original, I could be off. 🙂

I think Jertown makes a fair point; it seems rather a waste of a good concept to have a load of guns make up the silhouette of yet another gun. If something related to the title of the film - a tool, as mentioned - was comprised of a mosaic of guns, it would both be a play on the title and a clear suggestion of the theme/tone of the movie at the same time. Nice try, though. Oh, and Roderick, Statham tried a very different type of character in a talky Jessica Biel movie about relationships called London. Speaking as someone who had to watch it, it's probably for the best if he sticks to action flicks...

They should have gone for a poster like the 1972 version -- http://www.impawards.com/1972/mechanic_ver2.html
