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?

Clive Owen vs. Jason Statham = Must See ! Also even Deniro will be kicking some ass in this movie, so that's a bonus. I can't wait.

For a Statham movie, this looks better then most of his others.

This looks like a version of The Mechanic remake all over again.

He stepped way out of his comfort zone this time. 😉 Oh well, De Niro is in it, so I -have- to see it.

based on a true story? loosely.
Brian Ricci on Jun 23, 2011
Yeah, it's about a guy and his dad.

When I heard Yvonne Strahovski was going to be in this, I was hoping she would be kicking ass in it but all she appears to be is Statham's love interest.

Looks pretty good, it's almost like Statham has own genre of action films. I really can't find anybody that does it the same way he does
Bigdogg75 on Jun 23, 2011
but thank God for I love watching his films. They always deliver entertainment. This looks real good since I love Owen as well.

Wait, did they just give away a clip of the ending?... :-l
Tyler Danger on Jun 23, 2011
Yeah, SPOILER: there's a fight at the end.

Based on Jason Statham's life.
DCompose on Jun 23, 2011
Does this movie have any connecton with the older film "The Killer Elite" with James Caan and Robert Duvall?
Drew Kerr on Jun 23, 2011
No. That was a different film entirely. This film is based on the book called THE FEATHER MEN written in the 80s.
Bunjiro on Jun 23, 2011
i was totally expecting Owen Wilson... yea.
NICK S. on Jun 23, 2011
Oen looks rediculous with a mustache. Flick looks good though.
jebstuart on Jun 23, 2011

TTumMM on Jun 23, 2011
statham and owen and niro and...chair flip. 100% i'm in, i can't dissapoint mr. statham by not seeing his next flick. i want to be him (but with hair).
redguy on Jun 23, 2011
I don't think I have ever seen De Niro having a choreographed fighting scene. That alone will make me watch this.
Shige on Jun 23, 2011
De Niro kicking ass, Oh how I`ve missed the hardboiled De Niro. I`m in

They've got some star power for the new Crank movie.
Moon on Jun 23, 2011
looks good but I'd wait and rent it
Bazmoses on Jun 23, 2011
I love Statham, but I still think his best role was Turkish. Not at all like what's he's become known for.
grimjob on Jun 23, 2011
Owen Wilson, Robert Deniro, and Jason Stratham, and Stratham is the good guy? Weird. For me he ruins the movie...
ff on Jun 23, 2011
Hopefully this will be the big screen break for Yvonne Strahvisky. Love her in Chuck and Hollywood needs more Femme Fatales. If this trend continues, though, Statham could end up being the next Steven Stegal or Jean Claude Van Dam. And what's with the mustache on CLive OWen? It just looks wrong. That being said, I still want to see it.
mayhem on Jun 23, 2011
wait a second... Rock You Like A Hurricane is ok to play in an orchestra now? They had me sold til that crap started playing. I hated that song back then, I hate it now... I hate it more with an orchestral backing.
DaftBot on Jun 23, 2011
Generic, formulaic and tired.
Davide Coppola on Jun 23, 2011
Another trailer that shows way too much...
Wellington on Jun 24, 2011
Gah, that mustache. . .
Mr. Foe on Jun 24, 2011
BADASS!!! how can u not like this
Jalts4 on Jun 24, 2011
Jason Statham and Clive Owen - two of my favourite badasses of modern cinema in one movie. Gotta go see.
Mark Lair on Jun 25, 2011
i can't believe no one has commented on the fact that this trailer ends with a big ol' nut punch.
murmurmur on Jul 12, 2011
EVERY SINGLE JASON STATHAM MOVIE LOOKS EXACTLY THE SAME!!!!!.....and I wouldn't have it any other way. I'm going to see this.

They filmed this in Melbourne, Australia. Supposed to look a lot like NYC for the film. Just how old is Melbourne? I didn't see any Aussie actors I could recognise. Was all the cast imported?
