Watch: Danny Trejo is Bad Ass in the First Trailer for 'Bad Ass' Movie
"I can't wait to see what this footage looks like!" This is one of those times when calling this trailer and Danny Trejo a badass fits perfectly, due to the film itself being titled Bad Ass and Trejo's character being nicknamed "Bad Ass" in it. Thanks to YouTube (via TheMovieBox), we've now got a look at the first short trailer for Bad Ass, an indie action-drama starring Trejo as a Vietnam vet who can kick anyone's ass and becomes a local hero when he becomes somewhat of a vigilante. I didn't know much about this before, but this film is definitely on my radar now, and I'm looking forward to watching it. Fire up this trailer below!
Watch the first official trailer for Craig Moss' Bad Ass with Danny Trejo, originally via YouTube:
Decorated Vietnam vet Frank Vega returns home only to be shunned by society leaving him without a job. It's not until forty years later that an incident on a commuter bus makes him a local hero. But his good fortune turns for the worse when his best friend is murdered and the police aren't doing anything about it.
Bad Ass is directed by filmmaker Craig Moss, who directed those cheesy comedies Saving Ryan's Privates and The 41-Year-Old Virgin Who Knocked Up Sarah Marshall and Felt Superbad before. The screenplay is by Moss & newcomer Elliot Tishman. Made by Amber Lamps & Silver Nitrate, it doesn't have a distributor yet, as far as we know, but expect to see it sometime in the next year. Stay tuned for more! Look badass?
