I’m not sure how it came to fruition but here’s a trailer for Red 2 — the follow up to Red, a movie that exists. All of your favorite things about the original are back: John Malkovich pretends to be insane, Bruce Willis throws bad guys through furniture, and Helen Mirren acts like Jason Statham. Now, with the added elderly star power of Anthony Hopkins and Catherine Zeta Jones (mid-40’s = Hollywood elderly) and the karate of Byung-hun Lee, who has aged incredibly well.
But back to Mirren, can we get her to star in a straight-up action vehicle without any winks? She’d be great as Jason Bourne.
