Not a lot of sequels featuring action heroes over 50 look as good as the new trailer for RED 2, the sequel to the 2010 action movie RED, about Bruce Willis’s Frank Moses bringing his band of retired assassins back together.  Bruce Willis?  Again?  You’ve got to hand it to Bruce–he is making more movies than anyone half his age and he’s just not letting up.  Since the first movie RED in 2010 he has starred or was featured in twelve movies, including The Expendables and The Expendables 2, Looper, Moonrise Kingdom, A Good Day to Die Hard, G.I. Joe: Retribution, and coming soon, the adaptation of Frank Miller’s Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For.

Just look at the great cast in RED 2 and decide for yourself who to be more excited about.  Returning with Willis from the last film is John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, and Mary-Louise Parker.  This time around they’ve brought in Anthony Hopkins playing against type as a wacky jailed friend from the past.


Catherine Zeta Jones looks as incredible as ever.  Harry Potter fans will like seeing David Thewlis (Professor Lupin) join the cast, too.  And Garrick Hagon–who played Biggs Darklighter, Luke’s best friend, from the original director’s cut of the original Star Wars!

Byung Hun Lee in Red 2

But the biggest surprise and actor we can’t wait to see, especially after watching this trailer is Bying-hun Lee, who played Storm Shadow so brilliantly in two G.I. Joe movies.  This Lee has got to be the next Bruce Lee–his martial arts moves are awesome.

So check out this trailer for RED 2:

Look for RED 2 in theaters July 19, 2013.
