Aaron Eckhart Gets in More Trouble in First Trailer for 'Erased' Thriller
Honestly, after The Dark Knight, Aaron Eckhart has only been in one good movie, and that's Rabbit Hole with Nicole Kidman. This year, the actor is trying his best with a few efforts. Olympus Has Fallen comes out later this month, and I, Frankenstein is supposed to hit theaters this fall, but between those two films, Eckhart will hit theaters in the long delayed action thriller Erased, formerly known as The Expatriate. This first trailer feels like The Bourne Identity meets Unknown, Eckhart plays a CIA agent who suddenly finds that his office has been dissolved, and operatives are after him and his daughter to finish the job. Watch!
Here's the first trailer for Philipp Stölzl's Erased, originally from Yahoo:
When ex-CIA agent Ben Logan (Aaron Eckhart) discovers that he and his daughter have been marked for termination as part of a wide-reaching international conspiracy, a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse ensues as Logan tries to outsmart his hunters and uncover the truth. Liana Liberato, Olga Kurylenko and Alexander Fehling also star in Erased, directed by Philipp Stölzl and written by Arash Amel (Grace of Monaco). The film already hit theaters overseas last year, but now Radius-TWC is bringing the film to theaters May 10th.

I have seen this movie, only because it takes place where I live, but it's really bad. Eckhart and Kurylenko should change agents, cause they should not star in these kind of movies!

shame to hear that. Eckhart is a superlative actor - but this is not a great trailer. i will watch anything he's in, he's talented enough to elevate mediocre material to a higher level. every now and then, we get a Dark Knight, or a Thank You For Smoking. in between, we get this. but the hits are worth the waiting.

10 seconds in I thought to myself "The daughter is going to say 'I don't even know who you are!'", she did, bad sign

Generic, straight to DVD thriller. But I do have a soft spot for these movies, so I'll be checking it out. And Eckhart is always solid.

Let's try and kill this guy and kidnap his daughter! Oh wait, he's an off the charts black ops level ninja engineer that can outrun planes, aaaah he's killing us! We're all dying, aaaaaaah. Why don't they just hire a chubby guy that can't run very fast? They never learn.

Geez, they even used the same kind of title fade in that they did with The Bourne Legacy. Eckhart is a fantastic, fantastic actor, but he doesn't have the face for this. He has the face of a tobacco lobbyist, and he has the face of a district attorney...but I don't think he can pull off the look of a government operative.
