2010's RED taught us that ex-CIA agents still have it pretty rough post-retirement. Judging from the freshly released trailer for RED 2, the sequel will further solidify that truth.
In RED 2, Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) and his “motley crew of retired assassins” (John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, and, as the love interest, Mary Louise Parker) return to engage in a few more dangerous hi-jinks. They’ll be joined by a few new faces – Catherine Zeta-Jones, Lee Byung-hun, Neal McDonough and Sir Anthony Hopkins. Probably a few tubes of Ben Gay, too.
RED 2 is scheduled to hit theaters on August 2, 2013. Check out the incredibly fun looking trailer below and leave your thoughts in the comments.
FURTHER READING: The film, as you may know, is based on Warren Ellis and Cully Hammer’s comic miniseries of the same name. Amazon has a few copies of the trade left in stock, if you’re interested.
