As we approach the release of Summit’s spy comic adaptation Red, it continues to look like it’ll be the most fun we have in theaters in the month of October. There’s a new international trailer (with plenty of footage not seen in the first domestic trailer), and the fantastic ensemble — Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Mary-Louise Parker, etc. — clearly had a blast with the material. I’d be surprised if you can make it the whole 1:44 without a smile creeping across your face; if you’d like to try, check out the trailer after the jump.
The official synopsis:
Based on the cult D.C. Comics graphic novels by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner, RED is an explosive action-comedy starring Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren.
Frank (Bruce Willis), Joe (Morgan Freeman), Marvin (John Malkovich) and Victoria (Helen Mirren) used to be the CIA’s top agents – but the secrets they know just made them the Agency’s top targets. Now framed for assassination, they must use all of their collective cunning, experience and teamwork to stay one step ahead of their deadly pursuers and stay alive. To stop the operation, the team embarks on an impossible, cross-country mission to break into the top-secret CIA headquarters, where they will uncover one of the biggest conspiracies and cover-ups in government history.
