Two trailers and a poster have been released for Bad Ass starring Danny Trejo. The plot focuses an old guy (Trejo) who becomes an Internet sensation when he beats up a couple of thugs on a commuter bus. However, he goes on a rampage after his best friend is murdered and the cops don’t do anything about it. That second part isn’t mentioned in the either trailer. The trailers are simply: Danny Trejo is old and he kicks the shit out of people. I have no problem with that, and I doubt this will be another misdirect like Machete. As a character actor, Trejo has always carried the mantle of “Bad Ass” so it’s only fitting that he should star in a movie with the same title. You would have to be a bad ass to wear a fanny pack and still come off as threatening.
Hit the jump to check out the trailers and poster. The film also stars Charles S. Dutton and Ron Perlman. Bad Ass opens April 13th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Bad Ass:
Decorated Vietnam hero Frank Vega returns home only to get shunned by society leaving him without a job or his high school sweetheart. It’s not until forty years later when an incident on a commuter bus (where he protects an elderly black man from a pair of skin heads) makes him a local hero where he’s suddenly celebrated once again. But his good fortune suddenly turns for the worse when his best friend Klondike is murdered and the police aren’t doing anything about it.
