The first trailer for RED 2 has appeared and it has some good news – more of the same. By more of the same, I don’t mean ‘formulaic,’ I mean ‘fun.’ The sequel catches up with Bruce Willis and crew later, when our aged hitman is forced out of retirement by learning that Helen Mirran’s aged hitman was just offered a contract by the CIA to kill him. It looks like everyone that made it out of the first film alive will be back. Anthony Hopkins and Catherine Zeta-Jones will round out the cast.
In RED 2, the high-octane action-comedy sequel to the worldwide sleeper hit, retired black-ops CIA agent Frank Moses reunites his unlikely team of elite operatives for a global quest to track down a missing portable nuclear device. To succeed, they’ll need to survive an army of relentless assassins, ruthless terrorists and power-crazed government officials, all eager to get their hands on the next-generation weapon. The mission takes Frank and his motley crew to Paris, London and Moscow. Outgunned and outmanned, they have only their cunning wits, their old-school skills, and each other to rely on as they try to save the world—and stay alive in the process.
