Must Watch: Badass Red Band Righteous Kill Trailer

August 16, 2008

Righteous Kill Trailer

We've got some fantastic red band trailers to feature this weekend, this one for Righteous Kill being the second so far (in addition to Death Race). Besides some gun shots, one of the only reasons this is red band is the language. And hearing Robert De Niro and Al Pacino cursing each other out and yelling at people couldn't make me happier. In fact, this red band has really boosted my interest and now I feel like this honestly could be a great movie. I wasn't so sure with Summit Entertainment, but this has convinced me that it'll be pretty badass. Of course I knew this when I realized it's fuckin' De Niro and Pacino together anyway! Definitely be sure to check this trailer out. Hopefully I'm not the only one excited!

Watch the red band trailer for Righteous Kill:

[flv: 480 320]

Righteous Kill is directed by Jon Avnet of Fried Green Tomatoes, The War, and 88 Minutes, with a script by Russell Gewirtz, of Inside Man previously. The film is being released by Overture Films and is produced by a number of pretty uninteresting folks. Righteous Kill arrives in theaters on September 12th.

This movie just keeps looking better and better everytime I hear about it. Thanks for the trailer.

I'm still not completely sold. I mean Jon Avnet...what the hell do Pacino and De Niro see in him? Seriously. And 50 Cent...lets not go there either. Still excited but with a little hesitation to say the least.

Some directors just need the right movie to show what they have brewing in that skull of theirs. I think it looks great.

No, it still looks bad.

#6: You saw 88 Minutes? Some people just have to be different, don't they (joke). Oh, and this film looks like two fat cheques for two old stars who sadly no longer seem to care. A rental, probably.

DeNiro cares. See: Frankie Machine dir. by Michael Mann

50 Cent? This is automatically demoted to a renter...

seoulman on Aug 16, 2008


nah man 50 cent looks decent in the trailer... im def sold on this flick

Floyd on Aug 17, 2008


@seolman: What if he's one of the victims? hehe. Anyway, I liked this flick from the beginning. I figured it would be one that had a lot of material they couldn't put into a general-release trailer. If the film is R-rated, then you really need an r-rated cut for the trailer to get a feel for the flick. I was hoping they'd put out a red trailer for this.

This is definitely my next big expectation.. Will go watch TDK again till this releases.. :p

Deepak T on Aug 17, 2008


50Cent, Al Pacinos big hairfluff and a DeNiro on steroids. Looks like a mess.

Shige on Aug 17, 2008


I cant wait....

Travisbickle on Aug 17, 2008


better than the last trailer but thats due to the stones and the bad laungage , the director is a journeyman so i'm still on the fence. I fucking adore these guys and their early work and both of there comeback years but really cant see this knocking it out of the park, but what i love about the movies is there is always a chance of being surprised.

When will this two retire?

Yatzik on Aug 18, 2008


Two of my all time Favorite actors. Pacino being a Huge insperation to my acting as well. I will be there opening night for this one. Also Sympathy for the Devil was an awesome choice of song for the Trailer. Dog day afternoon and Taxi Driver two of the best films Hands Down

#23: When are YOU going to retire from being Mr. Dumbass?

Roy on Aug 18, 2008


michael mann should have directed, looks good either way.

Darrin on Aug 18, 2008


Yup, its a DeNiro/Pacino movie. How can you tell? They drop the F-bomb every other word...:-D

Maxxie on Aug 19, 2008


50 cent sucks

Drake on Aug 19, 2008


The swearing in this seems forced and a bit silly. The movie looks pretty run of the mill.

Crapola on Aug 19, 2008


wahlberg is the killer

what ever on Aug 21, 2008


Good trailer except for the music halfway through, ruined the vibe.

mrsatan on Aug 25, 2008


#31: Are you talking about Sympathy for the Devil ruining the trailer? Actually it sold the film to me - together with Pacino of course. 😉 And I agree with Floyd in #16 - even Mr. Curtis looks good in this trailer. I'll definitely go see it.
