Dean Parisot’s (Galaxy Quest) action-comedy sequel Red 2 opens this weekend.  The follow-up pits ex-CIA operative Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) against Victoria (Helen Mirren) when MI6 greenlights his assassination as Interpol’s “Most Wanted.”  All the while, Moses and his team must work to track down a missing nuclear device.  For more on the film, watch these six clips and the trailer.  Red 2 also stars John Malkovich, Mary-Louise ParkerCatherine Zeta-JonesByung Hun Lee, and Anthony Hopkins.

At the recent New York City press junket, I landed an exclusive video interview with Helen Mirren.  She talked about filming the action scenes, the way she prepares for a role, what she collects, future projects, and more.  Hit the jump to watch.
