Explosive New Trailer for RED
07.23.10 by BJSprecher
The first full-length trailer for DC Entertainment's latest comic book movie adaptation, Red, premiered yesterday during the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con Hall H panel for the movie and is now online. Based on the graphic novel of the same name created by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner, RED, which stands for "Retired, Extremely Dangerous," follows a group of over-the-hill CIA operatives who are targeted for termination because they are deemed security risks for their extensive knowledge of the agency's black ops programs. However, these operatives didn't earn the designate "RED" without a reason, as this explosive new trailer demonstrates.
The all-star cast includes Bruce Willis, Karl Urban, Brian Cox, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker, and Academy Award-winners Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman, Richard Dreyfuss, and Ernest Borgnine. Produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura, RED was written by Erich and Jon Hoeber and directed by Robert Schwentke (The Time Traveler's Wife).
