Panama '89 Action Thriller Film 'Panama' Trailer Starring Cole Hauser
"Panama has lots to offer a man like you…" Paramount + Saban have revealed the first official trailer for an action thriller called Panama, the latest from filmmaker Mark Neveldine, who hasn't made anything since The Vatican Tapes in 2015 (along with the two Cranks, Gamer, and that one Ghost Rider). An ex-marine is hired by a defense contractor to travel to Panama to complete an arms deal. In the process he becomes involved with the U.S. invasion of Panama during the political upheaval in the country in 1989, and learns an important lesson about the true nature of political power. Cole Hauser stars as "Becker", along with Charlie Weber, Katie Katzman, Jackie Cruz, and Mel Gibson. This doesn't look bad, but doesn't look so good either. I can't believe it actually opens with that cringe "welcome to the jungle!" scene, my goodness.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Mark Neveldine's Panama, direct from YouTube:
Mel Gibson and Cole Hauser star in the edge-of-your-seat action thriller set during the political upheaval of 1989 Panama. When the U.S. is on the brink of invading Panama to get ride of a dictator, a former marine (Cole Hauser) is hired by a CIA operative (Mel Gibson) for a top secret arms trade mission. Alone and among the most dangerous arms dealers, Becker learns the true nature of political power. Panama is directed by American producer / camera op / filmmaker Mark Neveldine, director of the movies Crank, Crank: High Voltage, Gamer, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, as well as The Vatican Tapes previously. The screenplay is written by William Barber & Daniel Adams. Saban Films + Paramount Pictures will debut Neveldine's Panama in select US theaters + on VOD starting on March 18th, 2022 coming soon.
