New posters have been released from The Lone Ranger, Red 2, Star Trek Into Darkness, and I, Frankenstein. Briefly, The Lone Ranger international poster has the Lone Ranger in danger of falling into Helena Bonham Carter‘s cleavage, the gang is all there in the Red 2 poster,
the Enterprise is still seriously screwed in the latest poster for Star Trek Into Darkness, and then there’s the first poster for I, Frankenstein. It’s a “motion poster”, but it will be holographic when you see it at your local theater. It doesn’t have a close-up of Aaron Eckhart as the monster, but at a distance, he’s the most handsome iteration of the creature to date.

I, Frankenstein opens in 3D on January 24th. [Update: The Star Trek Into Darkness poster was not approved by the studio, and we have removed it at their request.]

Summit Entertainment has released a new trailer for director Dean Parisot’s (Galaxy Quest) action-comedy sequel Red 2. The spy follow-up pits ex-CIA operative Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) against Victoria (Helen Mirren) when MI6 greenlights his assassination as Interpol’s “Most Wanted.” This trailer introduces us to the film’s new characters, as Anthony Hopkins plays a living MacGuffin (similar to John Hurt‘s character in Crystal Skull) and Catherine Zeta-Jones plays an old flame of Willis’ character who joins the group to combat a common enemy. Byung Hun Lee appears to bring some freshness to the film’s action sequences, and the humorous tone is spot-on thanks to the sensibilities of Parisot. All in all, Red 2 looks to be quite the fun ride.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Mary-Louise Parker and John Malkovich. Red 2 opens on July 19th.

A couple of new character posters have been released for director Dean Parisot’s (Galaxy Quest) Red 2, a much-anticipated sequel to an indulgently fun summer blockbuster franchise. The new posters showcase stars Bruce Willis and John Malkovich in all of their “retired” glory. The sequel finds Frank Moses (Willis) pitted against Victoria (Helen Mirren) when M16 gives the go ahead to his assassination by declaring him Interpol’s “most wanted.” All the while, Moses and his team work to track down a missing nuclear device. Mary-Louise Parker will return while Catherine Zeta Jones, Byung Hun, and Anthony Hopkins join the cast.
Although Red 2 looks indulgent (much like The Expendables franchise), we all can admit that we like to watch Willis blow stuff up and we enjoy seeing Malkovich, well, be himself. Hit the jump to check out the new posters and to read the full synopsis. Red 2 opens on July 19th.
Opening this Thursday is director Jon M. Chu’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation. The sequel’s story finds the Joes disbanded and outnumbered as they must square off against not only the Cobras, but also threats within their own government. G.I. Joe: Retaliation stars Dwayne Johnson, Bruce Willis, Channing Tatum, D.J. Cotrona, Elodie Yung, Ray Park, Byung-hun Lee, Ray Stevenson, Walton Goggins, RZA and Adrianne Palicki. For more on the film, here’s clips, images, on set interviews, and all our previous coverage.
While some had issues with the first G.I. Joe movie, most would agree the casting of Byung-hun Lee as Storm Shadow and Ray Park as Snake Eyes was dead on. So when Paramount decided to make the sequel and bring in a lot of new actors, I was extremely happy they kept Lee and Park. The other day I did an exclusive phone interview with Lee to help promote the film. We talked about his reaction to the finished film, 3D, the action sequences, what it was like having the world premiere in Korea, his preparation process, Red 2, doing action scenes with Bruce Willis, and a lot more. Hit the jump for what he had to say.
Lorenzo di Bonaventura is certainly one of the more prolific producers working today. The man is juggling a few different franchises at the moment, including Transformers and G.I. Joe, and he has two other highly anticipated films opening later this year. Steve recently sat down with the producer to talk about G.I. Joe: Retaliation, but di Bonaventura also spoke a bit about the action-comedy sequel Red 2 and Kenneth Branagh’s thriller Jack Ryan. Di Bonaventura talked about the new cast additions for Red 2 and his reaction to seeing the film, and he had nothing but praise for Chris Pine’s work as the titular character in Jack Ryan, also talking about the connection between this new film and the previous iterations of the Jack Ryan character. Hit the jump to read on.
Here are the latest release dates for the following films:
- Red 2 – The Dean Parisot-directed sequel centering on ex-operatives played by Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren and John Malkovich will now open two weeks earlier on July 19th.

Summit Entertainment has unveiled a new poster for director Dean Parisot’s (Galaxy Quest) upcoming sequel Red 2. The spy follow-up pits ex-CIA operative Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) against Victoria (Helen Mirren) when MI6 greenlights his assassination as Interpol’s “Most Wanted.” Mary-Louise Parker and John Malkovich reprise their characters from the first film as they’re joined by a bevy of newcomers that includes Catherine Zeta-Jones, Byung Hun Lee, and Anthony Hopkins. This poster asks onlookers to test their knowledge of the aforementioned actors’ backsides, as the assembled cast is shown facing the opposite direction and striking some rather intimidating poses.

The retired and extremely dangerous gang from Red return in this new teaser trailer for Red 2.

Joining the sequel will be Catherine Zeta-Jones, Byung Hun Lee and Anthony Hopkins. Red 2 opens August 2, 2013. Hit the jump to check out the teaser trailer and poster for Red 2.
Though we’ve seen set photos aplenty from the anticipated upcoming sequels The Hangover Part III and Red 2, the first official images from both films have now landed online. The images from the third and presumably final entry in the Hangover trilogy promise more madness, as we see an Abbey Road-ish pic of The Wolfpack (ie. Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms, Justin Bartha, and Bradley Cooper) set against the silhouette of Las Vegas. Though we’ll definitely see the group travel back to Vegas in the sequel, the city is “just one of their stops,” so we’re (hopefully) not in for yet another rehash of the first film.
As for the Red sequel, Galaxy Quest helmer Dean Parisot steps into the director’s chair this time around, and this first image gives us a look at Bruce Willis, Mary-Louise Parker, and John Malkovich striking the “cool guys don’t look at explosions” pose. Hit the jump to check out images from both films and for story details regarding The Hangover 3 from director Todd Phillips. The Hangover Part III opens on May 24, 2013, while Red 2 hits theaters on August 2, 2013.
Lorenzo di Bonaventura is one of the more prolific producers in Hollywood. In addition to producing the Transformers franchise, Red, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Salt, and many others, di Bonaventura has a number of exciting films coming up like The Last Stand, Side Effects, Red 2, Jack Ryan, and American Assassin.
Last week I was in London and while there landed an exclusive interview with di Bonaventura. We talked about the Red sequel, why they hired director Dean Parisot, Transformers 4, The Last Stand, the Salt sequel, his thoughts on Warner Bros. doing a 3D re-release of The Matrix, the G.I. Joe sequel and the 3D conversion, American Assassin, his upcoming ABC show Zero Hour starring Anthony Edwards, and a lot more. Hit the jump for what he had to say.
Director Robert Schwentke’s 2010’s action-comedy Red was a fairly sizeable success, grossing nearly $200 million for the ensemble pic. Production on the sequel is currently underway overseas, and Steve recently sat down with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura who discussed a number of upcoming projects, including Red 2. Briefly:
- The film takes place in the U.S., London, Paris, and Moscow and is described as “an international road trip movie.”
- The story picks up 6-9 months after the events of the first film.
- Bruce Willis’ character in Red was having trouble coping with retirement, while in this film we’ll see him having difficulty being in a relationship.
- The story involves the characters being linked to a mysterious thing called “Nightshade” posted on WikiLeaks that puts them and their loved ones in grave danger.
- Director Dean Parisot was chosen because of his work on Galaxy Quest and Justified.
- Filming began in September and wraps in late December.
