I caught the trailer for Red running before seeing Eclipse. I had seen links to the trailer before, but I thought it was another Helen Mirren BBC miniseries. It is definitely not that but a movie version of a DC Comics graphic novel. The movie is about a group of retired, ex-CIA agents who are bored with retirement, but the things they know from their job has put them at risk for assassination. They must band together once again to stay alive. There is lots of action and humor. The movie has an odd cast of Helen Mirren, Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker, Karl Urban, Richard Dreyfuss, Julian McMahon, Ernest Borgnine, and Brian Cox. That cast alone makes me want to see it.
Red is in theatres October 15, 2010.
