Must Watch: Statham, De Niro & Owen in Official 'Killer Elite' Trailer
"The gloves are off!" OmniLab and Open Road Films have just debuted the official trailer for Killer Elite, a badass-looking action flick from Australia starring Jason Statham as a elite killer, Robert De Niro as the guy he's saving, and Clive Owen as the bad guy. That's a hell of a cast and I'm hoping that means this is awesome. This trailer is fun as hell anyway, especially with that orchestral "Rock You Like a Hurricane", I want to see it after watching that! The girl is Yvonne Strahovski and it also includes Dominic Purcell and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. Give it a shot, it's pure action, but it might be good. Plus, damnit - it's De Niro!

When his mentor (De Niro) is taken captive, a retired member of Britain's Elite Special Service (Statham) is forced into action. His mission: kill the three assassins just dispatched by their cunning leader (Owen).
Killer Elite was both written and directed by Irish filmmaker Gary McKendry, making his feature debut after the Oscar nominated short Everything in This Country Must. The script was co-written by McKendry and Matt Sherring, adapted from Ranulph Fiennes' 1991 book The Feather Men. Omnilab Media and Open Road Films are bringing Killer Elite to theaters starting September 23rd this fall. Worth seeing in theaters?
