Killer Elite Preview Clip: It's Clive Owen vs. Jason Statham
08.29.11 by Ryan
Now that summer is over, movie audiences can look forward to the fall movie line-up, which includes two movies starring Jason Statham: September's action thriller Killer Elite and October's action thriller Safe. While Safe has Statham back in Transporter mode, rescuing a kidnapped girl, Killer Elite stars him as an ex-special ops agent who comes out of retirement to rescue his mentor (Robert De Niro) from a group of assassins led by Clive Owen and his ill-advised mustache.
With less than a month before the movie opens, Open Road Films has released another action-packed preview clip, following the two clips released earlier this month. The latest clip sees Statham on the run, while Owen chases after him.
Killer Elite was directed by newcomer Gary McKendry and is "based on a true story" taken from the 1991 novel The Feather Men by former British Army officer Sir Ranulph Fiennes — a story that critics have called "pure fiction."
Dominic Purcell (Prison Break), Yvonne Strahovski (The Canyon), Aden Young (The Tree) and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) co-star.
