Newer, Better Trailer for Jason Statham's The Bank Job

Right around Christmas about a month ago we ran the newly discovered international trailer for the upcoming heist movie The Bank Job. It was poorly cut and really made the film look bad, which was disappointing because of how excited I was initially based on the photos. However, an official American trailer has hit and it makes the film really look as good as I originally imagined. I'm in the mood for an awesome heist movie this year and when you throw Jason Statham into the mix, I'm all for it. If you really weren't sold on the first trailer, then I really encourage you to give it a second chance and watch this trailer instead.
I'm a bit worried about Jason Statham's credibility given some of his recent movie choices - War and In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, specifically. But maybe he just got caught in a bad stint of shitty movies, and I hope he pulls out of that rut with The Bank Job.
Watch the newer, better trailer for The Bank Job:
The Bank Job is directed by Roger Donaldson (Species, Dante's Peak, Thirteen Days, The Recruit, The World's Fastest Indian) and written by Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais (Across the Universe, Flushed Away). The film arrives in theaters in the US on March 7th, 2008. The poster for The Bank Job is featured below.

Looks good...maybe just fun, but Im seeing it. My early prediction is that it will take in $21 mil opening weekend. And I think Jason Statham has always chosen to be in alot of par action movies: cellular, war, the one that came out last weekend that nobody saw, The One, The Transporter, Crank. OK Crank pretty much sums it up. granted he did nicely with lock stock, snatch, and the italian job, but on the whole... he is a good actor but I want to see him in a truly deep and dramatic role. I think he will shine if he eventually takes such a role.

Reminds me of 'Small Time Crooks' and 'The Ladykillers'. Seem alright but not good.

Typical American trailer - gave away the whole movie! I feel like I don't even need to go and see it now. -Dan

I love the trailer of Jason's new movie. I loved Him in Transporter 1&2, but not in 'Crank'. It made him look stupid. I love that He is so physically well built, His awesome accent, and His quietness, which is a prelude to His forceful intensions. I love Him!!! He is also Gerard Butler's friend, which is in my book, a pretty wonderful thing!! I love the fact that we women get to see such gorgeous chests on these well built men. I am so sick of seeing women's 'chests'. I am a woman and I am not interested in seeing that, so when I get to see a body with an awsome chest like Jasons' and Gerrys', and Alex O'Loughlins', I am very happy!!! Thanks for the chance to voice my feelings, Keep up the good work Jason!!! JO
