Criminal Trailer

The Mission Is In The Memories. Lionsgate has debuted a trailer for an intriguing high-concept sci-fi film called Criminal, that is indeed about a couple of criminals, but also so much more. Ryan Reynolds plays a deceased CIA operative whose memories and thoughts are implanted into the mind of a criminal, played by Kevin Costner, who is recruited by the head of the CIA, played by Gary Oldman, to finish a mission. The cast includes Gal Gadot, Alice Eve, Scott Adkins, Antje Traue, Michael Pitt and Tommy Lee Jones as the Doc. This is the kind of movie that makes you legitimately wonder if the people who made it have any idea how technology works, or if they just like big ideas that sell and the way it all sounds. Oh well.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Ariel Vromen's Criminal, direct from Lionsgate's YouTube:

Criminal

The story of the right man in the wrong body. In a last-ditch effort to stop a diabolical plot, a dead CIA operative's (Ryan Reynolds) memories, secrets, and skills are implanted into an unpredictable and dangerous death-row inmate (Kevin Costner) in hopes the he will complete the operative's mission. Criminal is directed by Israeli filmmaker Ariel Vromen (of The Iceman, Danika, Rx previously), from a screenplay written by Douglas Cook and David Weisberg. This was filmed in England originally in 2014. Summit Entertainment and Millennium Films present a Benderspink production and Millennium Films production and a Campbell Grobman Films production. Criminal arrives in theaters on April 15th, 2016.

    So Green Lantern is married to Wonder Woman, he gets killed and they put his brain in a bad Jonathan Kent. Commissioner Gordon then recruits bad Jonathan who turns good and probably ends up boning Wonder Woman... while Zod's henchwoman, Faore does something too. Awesome.

    I didn't see that "twist" coming at all. I guess it also SUCKS to know that it's coming to begin with but they need it to sell the movie as different. I like old ass Costner and this looks above average. Hopefully its good. I'll watch it for sure.
