With an ensemble cast that includes such Hollywood heavyweights as Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, and Academy Award-winner Dame Helen Mirren, just to name a few, RED contains enough star power for several movies. To help audiences get acquainted with the large cast of characters, Warner Bros. has started releasing clips spotlighting each of the RED ("Retired, Extremely Dangerous") operatives. The first clip released focused on Dame Mirren's character, Victoria, who fights the boredome of retirement with an occasional odd job that requires heavy ordnance. The latest clip features Malkovich as Marvin, an extremely reclusive and paranoid explosives expert who lives in an underground bunker.
Based on the graphic novel of the same name created by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner, RED was written by Erich and Jon Hoeber and directed by Robert Schwentke. Karl Urban, Brian Cox, Mary-Louise Parker, and Academy Award-winners Morgan Freeman, Richard Dreyfuss, and Ernest Borgnine also star.
