For fans of take-no-names action movies, a sequel to a Jason Statham movie is a pretty cool thing. Statham has seen a fair number of sequels in movies like The Transporter, Fast & Furious, and The Expendables franchises. This year Statham adds another sequel to his catalog of films with Mechanic: Resurrection. Statham reprises the role of Arthur Bishop from The Mechanic, a 2011 movie co-starring Ben Foster and Donald Sutherland.
Bishop is an assassin, an assassin hired for his skill in making deaths look like accidents. Statham packs his films full of great stunts, as seen in the first trailer just released by Lionsgate.
Mechanic: Resurrection co-stars Tommy Lee Jones, Jessica Alba, and Michelle Yeoh. Jessica Alba looks like she gets to be more than just eye candy this time around, kicking some butt in the preview.
