Intense New Action Trailer for Ensemble Heist Movie 'Takers'
Everyone knows you don't ever hit armored trucks (you always get busted)! Screen Gems has debuted the second new trailer for the ensemble heist action movie Takers starring quite an eccentric cast: Idris Elba, Paul Walker, Hayden Christensen, Zoe Saldana, Matt Dillon, Jay Hernandez, T.I. and Chris Brown. I love a good heist movie and I want this to be a good heist movie, but this just looks pretty awful. This is the same movie that had a bad first trailer and even worse poster, despite a strong cast. I don't know, maybe I'll see this on DVD, I'm not sure (probably not). Take a look and let us know what you think? And if you'll see it?

Revolves around a notorious group of bank robbers (Idris Elba, Paul Walker, T.I., Chris Brown, Hayden Christensen, Michael Ealy) who continue to baffle police by pulling off perfectly executed bank robberies. They are in and out like clockwork, leaving no evidence behind and laying low in between their heists.
Takers is directed by John Luessenhop, of only the prison drama Lockdown previously. The screenplay was co-written by Luessenhop, Peter Allen (of Book of Swords) and newcomers Gabriel Casseus and Avery Duff. Screen Gems will be bringing Takers to theaters everywhere on August 20th later this summer. Anyone?
