New Clips from RED Abound with Action and Comedy
10.13.10 by BrentJS
Director Robert Schwentke's new movie, RED, opens this Friday and, though it's based on the gritty action comic book by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner, the movie doesn't easily fit into the typical "action movie" category. Sure, RED—about a team of "Retired, Extremely Dangerous" CIA operatives who decide to fight back after the agency targets them for termination—contains bone-crunching fist fights, over-the-top pyrotechnics, tons of spent ammunition, and '90s action hero Bruce Willis, but it also supplies plenty of yucks from typically-serious actors like John Malkovich and Academy Award-winners Morgan Freeman and Dame Helen Mirren, as these recently released new clips from the movie will attest.
RED was written by Jon and Erich Hoeber and produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura. Karl Urban and Mary-Louise Parker also star.
