Milla Jovovich Runs from Pierce Brosnan in 'Survivor' Thriller Trailer
"If you get her in your sight, do no hesitate." Pierce Brosnan took the hero role in last year's action thriller The November Man, but this year he's in villain mode for a new action thriller called Survivor. This time it's Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil) on the run as she's being framed for a terrorist bombing that Brosnan's infamous assassin character executed. It seems like a pretty generic plot, but Brosnan is doing some pretty slick stuff in this trailer. In fact, he seems to get more screentime than Jovovich, which doesn't really seem fair to the actress, but Brosnan is a James Bond veteran, so he'll help sell the movie too. Watch?
Here's the first trailer for James McTeigue's Survivor, originally from Yahoo:
Survivor is directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Ninja Assassin, The Invasion, The Raven) and written by Philip Shelby (Mechanic: Resurrection). After being mysteriously framed for a terrorist bombing, a Foreign Service Officer (Milla Jovovich) must evade government capture and death by a ruthless assassin (Pierce Brosnan) in order to stop the real perpetrators’ master, and much deadlier, plan. Dylan McDermott, Angela Bassett and Robert Forster also star in the film arriving on VOD and in theaters on May 29th.

V for Vendetta was a nearly perfect movie...what happened James?

Well, generic to be sure, Milla is not a good actress on any level, I guess its on Pierces shoulders to carry this.

I really don't know how she keeps getting roles.

I root for Brosnan's character. It would be much more interesting if he wins on the end ... Although, I know, bad people defending government always win ...

Looks like a follow-up to November Man, no?

I don't know. It looks like Brosnan and M. Jovovich changed rolls. Which isn't quite interesting. But mostly, I am still trying to figure out how did they end up in the same movie ...

Can't really take Brosnan seriously. Just doesn't seem a very scary guy, even as Bond he was a bit wet.

Seems fun enough...McTeigue is a redflag. Could be great. V FOR VENDETTA was bad ass.

Um, snipers don't let their guns hang off the front of the building guys, they pull back as to not be seen, that's why you have an expert on set at all times. Besides that this movie looks kick-ass! Mila, Robert Forrester, Brosnan? Hell Yeah!!
