Crazy Red Band Teaser Trailer for Crank 2: High Voltage!

Holy shit! There is no better way to describe this jaw-droppingly insane teaser trailer for Crank 2: High Voltage. This may literally be the most ridiculous thing you'll see in the next month! It took 3 years for Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor to bring us this sequel to Crank. This is set to hit theaters in April and it certainly looks like one hell of a crazy follow-up. For those who haven't heard, Jason Statham returns as Chev Chelios in Crank 2: High Voltage, somehow still alive after the end of Crank. This time, a a Chinese mobster has replace his heart with a battery-powered one that requires electricity to keep working.
Watch the insane red band trailer for Crank 2: High Voltage:
Sorry guys, the trailer has been removed at the request of Lionsgate.
In this high-octane sequel, hitman Chev Chelios launches himself on an electrifying chase through Los Angeles in pursuit of the Chinese mobster who has stolen his nearly indestructible heart.
Crank 2: High Voltage is both written and directed by visionary filmmakers Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, the two crazy guys behind Crank and the upcoming Game. The film was produced by Lakeshore Entertainment and is being distributed by Lionsgate. Mark and Brian shot this entirely handheld with consumer and prosumer digital video cameras, which should make for quite an interesting experience. Crank 2: High Voltage arrives in theaters everywhere on April 17th. Get ready for a shock!

Looks even lower budget than the first one, but I loved the first Crank and want to see what happens next in the series.

Hahaha oh man.. this looks awesome.

now this trailer is badass.but how he comes back alive after falling from that great height in the last movie is simply beyond my understanding.well the first one was a kick ass movie.it would rather be hilarious to find chev again get trappped in the similar chaotic situation as in the first movie.as if all such troubles are meant for him.
abhishek on Dec 31, 2008
Looks lower budget, totally stupid and full of action and chicks. I like it! 🙂
justsomeone on Dec 31, 2008
With the first one I kinda lost seriousness with it with the hospital/boner scene and just took into account it was just meant to be a fucking awesome bloody sex driven romp. This one looks like it does the same thing and more...SEEIN IT

Wow, impressive. I can't wait for the actual trailer to be released. The Linkin Park song playing in the background caught my attention as well, then I see Chester IN the movie. Anyone know the name of this song? Not sure if it's on their new album or a song specifically for the film.

f dragonball on Dec 31, 2008

chris on Dec 31, 2008

squizzy on Dec 31, 2008

burak "daequitas" on Dec 31, 2008
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! That's gotta be the craziest trailer ever! Love the first one and this one doesn't look like it will disappoint. Take it for what it is, over the top action, super cheezy but one hell of fun ride.
K on Dec 31, 2008
Holy shit is right, holy shit I can't believe I just watched such a shitty trailer for yet another shitty Jason flick.

At :40 seconds, is that Jenna Haze?
Quicksilver on Dec 31, 2008
Looks pretty crazy.
Darunia on Dec 31, 2008
It does look like it was filmed at public access, here's hoping that was before post production.
sankofa on Dec 31, 2008
Yep Jena Haze at 40 sec. Other than that this movie looks like straight ASS! Horrible terrible!!!
Black Dynamite on Dec 31, 2008
Hahahaha awesome! I cant wait to see this!
Dave on Dec 31, 2008
Geesh...not my kind of show. I couldn't get past the first couple of "f's" and questionable shots of some chick. Definitely going to pass. One day, I hope someone does a beefcake movie for us chicks...dang it.
Bry from Chi on Dec 31, 2008
@4 watch the first one again when he hits you hear a heartbeat http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mnM64N-JH7M
Michael on Dec 31, 2008
hahahahahahaha looks soo badass!!!
cmedina on Dec 31, 2008
And I thought the first one was amazingly horrible.. and people are actually looking forward to this movie?! Ah well, it was made for dumb fucks anyways. Enjoy.
nem on Dec 31, 2008
This is the Jesus Christ of films.
Lincoln Smith on Dec 31, 2008
I thought the first one was vile! Holy cow-These guys who direct this series are bottom of the barrel. This garbage will bury Strathams career! chuck
entertainmenttodayandbeyond.com on Dec 31, 2008
It maybe be a high octane explosive orgasmic action fuck, it still appeals to a wide variety of people, who don't want to watch some long drawn out crime drama, or a slow thriller, as for this story why not. Hopefully Jason after this catastrophic movie comes out he'll pick a good movie to star in. I really don't want to see his career end in Crank... but people will see it, many will enjoy it for its mindless action, most will probably hate it, along with Jason! Critics will bash it to death, but come on, who dosen't love a half retarted action flick?
xerxerxex on Dec 31, 2008
damn that looked straigh ridiculous!!...Cant wait to see it!!
Trey on Dec 31, 2008
Let's see.....find a messed up town, have a budget of about 100$ a day (that's to buy everyone a round of drinks, at the local bar, because they can't afford to pay anyone), and have a far fetched story line to keep him alive. I also like the fact that, in his world, his skin never gets burned when recharging.
Ross on Dec 31, 2008
@ 22... Yes I remember hearing his heartbeat, but that still doesn't explain why he survived the fall.
peloquin on Dec 31, 2008
I'd rather have another abortion than see this piece of rotten afterbirth. They should have stopped after the first one.
Jenallota on Dec 31, 2008
A shotgun up the ass? Wow. What brilliant, original movie making. I can't wait for this one to come out and bomb so we never have to see anything from this movie again.
Greggers on Dec 31, 2008
Wow is all i gotta say. I'm really excited. The way it's filmed looks really in your face.
Dan W on Dec 31, 2008
#31 Jenna, is a sick sick fucking person
Bo on Dec 31, 2008
#7 Dude, FUCK the actual trailer!!! This baby just sold me. I saw the first one and thought it was terrible. Seriously, there were only two good things about the first one: Jason Statham and Jason Statham fucking Amy Smart in Chinatown. When I heard about the sequel, I was like Kenan on 'Kenan & Kel': "WWWWHHHHHHHHYYYYYYYYYYY??????!!! But after seeing this trailer, I am definitely going to have to reconsider. I mean this thing is like a pornographic action movie. Tons of violence, tons of sex, and (apparently) TONS of PROFANITY! I am a little iffy with all the hand held camera action, but the rest of it looks pretty enticing.
PEDRO on Dec 31, 2008
the first one is literally one of my fave movies of all time becuase you didn't have to think during it, all you had to do was turn your mind off for 2 hrs, sit back, and enjoy an overall funny, original heart-pounding film. not many movies can keep your attention for 90 mins straight, and this one seems to be another winner. ill definitely be see u in line
LeeMan on Dec 31, 2008
My favorite part was Dwight Yoakum saying, "Is Doc Miles gonna haffa choke a bitch?"
JL on Dec 31, 2008
Didn't they just give away everything?
Ryan on Dec 31, 2008
HAHAHHAHAHA That looks insane. My friend is the Chinese villain in this movie. You see him in the trailer many times.
asdf on Dec 31, 2008

I read the script to this. It was hilarious. I hope they didn't cut too much out off the page. Awesome!
Trent on Jan 1, 2009
SHEAAAAT! Jason Statham is at his top! The Movie will rock HARD =D
Fisherr on Jan 1, 2009
Vile. Disgusting. Perverted. Trash. WHY ISN'T THIS OUT IN THEATERS RIGHT NOW?!
Roy on Jan 2, 2009
I can walk away from this if it is as bad as the first one.......it was a total waste of time, never mind the $$$$ I laid down to see it........ While I love Jason's work, I was just so totally annoyed by it that I frankly am shocked they would release a sequel........
Rosalee on Jan 2, 2009
entertainment! not all movies are supposed to be oscar caliber. this is gonna be entertainment at its best!
sorr on Jan 2, 2009
This looks like just a good FUCKING time movie who gives a shit about the story. Girls, guns and action do you need more for a good time.
600RR on Jan 2, 2009
Can they find someone who actually SPEAKS Cantonese properly? That Cantonese voiceover sounds like some ABC pretending to be HK Triad. And the words don't even match the English subtitles. 😛
KC on Jan 3, 2009
im sold! amy smart is still there!
jepoy on Jan 4, 2009
Man. I missed it. Trailer taken downtown
Eman on Jan 6, 2009
Crap acting, silly storyline, low budget. This is surely a Travolta movie. He's gonna be up there with Dolph Lundgren and Phillip Michael Thomas soon as the most embarrassing actor awards.
Steve on Jan 7, 2009
Steve if you don't like it piss off, this movie gonna rock crazy shit man, we need a movie where we can have a bear and a joint and enjoy and forget our pathetic lifes... Go Crank me up bitches wwoohhooo Crank 2 is coming in town >:-)
