Mechanic: Resurrection Trailer

"I've been waiting too long to get even with you." Lionsgate has released the first full-length trailer for this summer's Mechanic: Resurrection, the sequel to The Mechanic from 2011, arriving in theaters in two months. This film stars Jason Statham in his 10,000th action film, as an assassin who makes his hits look like accidents. Aside from Statham, the cast includes Jessica Alba, Tommy Lee Jones, and Michelle Yeoh - impressive names for just another action movie. You thought he wouldn't return to this series, but he's back. The Mechanic is forced to travel the globe to complete three impossible assassinations, and do what he does best, make them all look like accidents. Well at least Tommy Lee Jones looks cool. Have a look.

Here's the first official trailer for Dennis Gansel's Mechanic: Resurrection, direct from YouTube:

Mechanic: Resurrection

Arthur Bishop (Jason Statham) returns as the Mechanic in the sequel to the 2011 action thriller. When the deceitful actions of a cunning but beautiful woman (Jessica Alba) force him to return to the life he left behind, Bishop’s life is once again in danger as he has to complete an impossible list of assassinations of the most dangerous men in the world. Mechanic: Resurrection is directed by German filmmaker Dennis Gansel, of the films Before the Fall, The Wave, We Are the Night and The Fourth State previously. The screenplay is written by Philip Shelby and Tony Mosher, from a story by Philip Shelby. Lionsgate will release Gansel's Mechanic: Resurrection in theaters starting August 26th later this summer. Anyone up for this?

CGI fire and CGI explosions were obvious. Hope it gets resolved in the final product.

The first one was fun and pretty cool. This looks looks fun. I am glad Statham decided to take a little break. There was that three year sprint where it felt like he was making like 3 movies a year.

Well my kind of movie. Mindless fun analyzing it could be possible or not. Statham is the best b list action star by far.

So, Jason Statham is definitely working as an action hero. Jessica Alba is not working as an actress but can pass as a bikini exhibit and Tommy Lee Jones can pass as almost anything when he's really willing to do it right... So, that's what makes watchable fun and I plan to enjoy it shamelessly ...

Jason Statham returning as Jason Staham!

OH MAN that title sucks SO bad! And honestly, the predecessor to this wasn't that lousy! Even the Bronson version still is pretty cool. This looks like a definite Redbox/Cable viewing. And Statham is a solid action star, but I think the guy deserves better roles than this! Lock Stock is still my favorite flick of his. Looks like another "pay the rent" role- just getting the paycheck to keep that house in Malibu. One more thing, lets retire the "damsel in distress" storyline for action films for a years please? SO TIRED. Rant end.

yes lock stock is a classic...

Jessica Alba still looks hot, Tommy Lee Jones is skinny as hell, and Jason Statham is doing Jason Statham things still. On to the trailer, I enjoyed the first one, I'll watch this for free when that time comes.

in the poster - what seems to be a detonator is on the same ceiling as the one he is hanging that wise?

Why do you choose to indulge in movies if you just shit on everything?! What have you done to make a flawless movie, or just make a movie at all?! Have you made any efforts to try to change the industry? You complain more than an anti-Trump protester as if making film is supposed to change the world or cure cancer. And believe me, I'm not defending this movie by any means, It's just exhausting for me as a viewer of this site to see you perpetually post negative comments, so I can only imagine how this eats away at your soul because of the amount of negative energy you carry around for such a trivial subject. Perhaps you should direct your energy towards something philanthropic so it's not wasted.

That was a pretty epic reply...

"Innocuous", OK that'll do;-)

Ha "drama queen"? Funny, that's exactly how I feel about you when I read your posts. And your response? Even more laughable. Same meaningless rhetoric you spew every time to make yourself feel superior in your own sick way. What's even more laughable is how you think you're some sort of physiatrist who assumes to know me as if I've been a patient of yours sitting on a lounge while you analyze my mind and emotions all because of one simple post. Yeah, okay.....Hilarious. You can continue to respond with your novelistic rebuttals but they will never truly help your case as much as you would love them to. In the end, it's simply you complaining because something isn't being made to your standards. You talk as if you created the industry and it was taken over by someone else who changed your life's work. Get over it. Like you said, you're over 50 years old, so act like it and quit treating this site like it's your personal drama queen diary. On the other hand, just like a drama queen, you will continue to do so no matter what I say so I guess I'm at an impasse. Good luck with your pessimistic views of cinema. Cheers!

This movie is a real surprise. Didn't expect this to be that good. Overall this movie should be put on one shelf with other good movies that you may watch once in a while.
