First Trailer for 'Term Life' Starring Vince Vaughn & Hailee Steinfeld
"No one can connect us to any of this." Focus World has unveiled a trailer for the film Term Life, a crime drama starring Vince Vaughn as a man being hunted by hitmen trying to extended his life in hopes that his insurance policy will kick in just in time to pay out to his estranged daughter. Hailee Steinfeld co-stars as his daughter, and the cast features Taraji P. Henson, Jon Favreau (in some kind of role), Terrence Howard, Annabeth Gish, Bill Paxton, Mike Epps and Jordi Mollà. This isn't so much of a comedy, but it has some funny moments, though I still can't help feel Vaughn seems out of place. Maybe it's just me.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Peter Billingsley's Term Life, originally debuted by Yahoo:
A guy (Vince Vaughn) wanted around town by various hit men hopes to stay alive long enough for his life insurance policy to kick in and pay out for his estranged daughter (Hailee Steinfeld). Term Life is directed by filmmaker Peter Billingsley, who began his career playing Ralphie in A Christmas Story, eventually moving into producing and now directing with Couples Retreat his most recent film. The screenplay is written by Andy Lieberman, based on Nick Thornborrow's graphic novel of the same name first published in 2011. Focus World will open Term Life in select theaters starting April 8th this spring. Anyone interested?

Good god that trailer is abysmal. Movie could be good, but the trailer isn't helping. And the poster of course is as generic as they come. I would have preferred a generic Vince Vaughn comedy to be honest. This is making me laugh for the wrong reasons:/

Interesting to see how far these two actors careers have turned. Steinfeld still has a lot of potential (as does Vaughn's), but they have come very far from the star potential they once had.

At least the cleaner guy from Breaking Bad got some work.

This doesn't look as bad as I thought it would be (and at the same time I keep wondering how come Vince Vaughn is considered an actor). And that doesn't make it my first choice to watch this year ...

When Vaughn & Favreau are on screen together, it makes me giddy. Swingers, Made, The Break-Up are all gold.
