‘THE TOURNAMENT’ NSFW TRAILER

The new trailer for Scott Mann’ THE TOURNAMENT hit today and we couldn’t be more excited about it. The plot is simple: every seven years, in a small town, a tournament to determine the world’s #1 assassin takes place. Believable? Nope. Awesome? Eff yes. If the trailer is a true indication of the tone of the movie, it’s going to be, as ScreenJunkie Wookie Johnson put it, "SMOKIN’ ACES without the gimmicks."  

 

You have to admit it’s a virtual who’s who of badasses all crammed into one actio flick: 

 

Marcellus Wallace from PULP FICTION? Check.

 

Boone from "Lost?" Had he not been crushed inside a plane full of heroin, he would have probably kicked Sayeed’s ass for ever laying eyes on his sister. Check. 

 

Lady Deathstrike from X2: X-MEN UNITED? Triple adamantium-coated check. 

 

Those three are playing assassins. But this movie looks so badass, they’ve got Robert Carlyle – freakin’ Begbie from TRAINSPOTTING – playing a Catholic priest. 

 

to our knowledge, the U.S. release date for this film hasn’t been announced yet, but this year would be good. We haven’t seen a real assassin vs. assassin movie in a while, and 2002′s BALLISTIC: ECKS VS. SEVER does not count.  Actually, that was exactly seven years ago… which means the tournament is right on time.
