"Can anyone please tell me where my son is being kept?" Paramount has unveiled an official trailer a crime thriller titled Mercy, the latest film from a Vancouver-based filmmaker named Tony Dean Smith. This will be out in theaters along with a digital debut in May not long from now. Leah Gibson stars with Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Jon Voight in this action thriller. An ex-military doctor finds herself in a deadly battle for survival when the Irish mafia seize control of the hospital she's working at. She is forced to rely upon her battle-hardened past and lethal skills after realizing there's no one left to save the day but her. This has an obvious Die Hard-in-a-hospital setup, but switching things up with Leah Gibson as the McClane character with special action skills who has to take out all the bad guys in this one building. Also featuring Sebastien Roberts, Anthony Konechny, Patrick Roccas, and Anthony Bolognese. Another of these films that doesn't look that bad, but doesn't look that good either–will have to watch to find out. Check out the trailer.
