First Trailer for 'Killers Anonymous' with Gary Oldman & Jessica Alba
"We're all here because we're not all there." Lionsgate has debuted an official trailer for a VOD film titled Killers Anonymous, an action thriller about a support group for killers. Yep, this is a play on "Alcoholics Anonymous" but for killers, and it's as dumb of a concept as it sounds written out here. Remarkably, the cast for this film is lead by some major names: Oscar winner Gary Oldman, along with Jessica Alba, Suki Waterhouse, Tommy Flanagan, MyAnna Buring, Michael Socha, Tim McInnerny, Sadie Frost, Rhyon Nicole Brown, and Sam Hazeldine. As expected, this group gets into trouble. "When new truths are discovered, secret alliances and betrayals emerge as the session explodes into violence and chaos." This looks like a disaster, which isn't any surprise, but still I don't get how these films keep getting made. Enjoy.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Martin Owen's Killers Anonymous, direct from YouTube:
Tensions mount at "Killers Anonymous", a support group for killers, as the members of the group try to unravel the mystery behind which one of them is responsible for the assassination attempt on a U.S. senator that has the police authorities in the city on high alert. But things are not as they seem, and when new truths are discovered, secret alliances and betrayals emerge as the session explodes into violence and chaos, forcing the killers to kill or be killed! Killers Anonymous is directed by filmmaker Martin Owen, of L.A. Slasher and Let's Be Evil previously, plus a few short films. The screenplay is written by Seth Johnson, Elizabeth Morris, and Martin Owen. This hasn't premiered at any festivals or elsewhere. Lionsgate will open Owen's Killers Anonymous in select theaters + on VOD starting June 28th this summer. Interested in this?
These films get made because actors of the caliber of Oldman want to act in them. I couldn't ascertain if they had their tongues firmly in cheek here and were being satirical or what, but I'll certainly give it a watch when it comes on cable or On Demand. Why not? It's has a pretty good cast and the story is a bit slanted and not just an infantile American movie to made please the mass audience. For that alone it's worth my taking a look.

To say this looks awful is an understatement. I don't know if its the horribly cut trailer, or the Tarantinoesque story that the filmmaker probably won't be able to pull off. I can hear the pitch now. This is Sneakers meets Reservoir Dogs meets Dexter meets The Expendables. I'm out. Also, after I hear about all the stuff Gary Oldman has turned down. "Why Gary...Why?"

I didn't watch either trailer, and while intrigued with the stars of both films, I (probably) won't see either movie. I just wanted to post that both Devon Sawa and Jessica Alba have new movie trailers out in the same day, and after double-checking at imdb.com... Today is exactly 20 years and 2 weeks after Idle Hands hit theaters! (too bad we never got a sequel for that instead) PS: Since Disqus won't let me double post (on 2 seperate pages)... shout out for Tommy Flannagan! He deserves more (better) work! *cough* Guardians of the Galaxy 2 *cough* best cameo *cough* I cried when he died #futaserface!

What to do with this? It certainly isn't great but some people in it might make it watchable ...

Woof. Even with this cast I can't imagine this being worth anyone's time. I rolled my eyes so many times at the the tropes and dialogue in this trailer I'M DIZZY... https://media1.giphy.com/media/l2YWiAM72iHZlmArC/giphy.gif
