The first trailer for Jason Statham-starrer Homefront is now available and it clearly plays to the action man’s strengths, namely kicking ass, taking names and not saying all that much beyond the occasional one-liner. Adapted by Sylvester Stallone from the Chuck Logan novel, Homefront centers on DEA agent Phil Broker (Statham) who moves his family to a quiet town that just happens to be Meth-Central, USA. When his daughter runs afoul of a tweaker family’s kid, the meth’d-out mother (played by Kate Bosworth in a bit of a shocking turn) seeks retribution from the local drug lord, Gator (James Franco) and his gang. While I don’t buy Franco as the threatening sort, I’d happily watch Statham punch through Gator’s army of thugs any day.
