Jason Statham At His Best in Red Band Trailer for 'The Mechanic'
"I've always had this anger, now I have a place to put it." CBS Films has debuted a new red band trailer for their upcoming remake of The Mechanic starring Jason Statham and Ben Foster as hitman and apprentice, respectively. The first official trailer hit in November and this new one comes from IGN. I like the way this sets up the movie a lot more than that other trailer, but that's because they don't have to worry about showing some of the brutal R-rated violence. This actually looks like it's worth watching now, because before I couldn't tell if it was just another boring action flick or not. It could be pretty good! Watch below.
Watch the red band trailer for Simon West's The Mechanic:
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.
