Behold the debut trailer for "RED 2," the action-comedy sequel that has Bruce Willis reprising his role as Frank Moses, the ex-CIA agent whose retirement plans always seem to get thwarted. This time around, Frank's name is thrown to the top of Interpol's most-wanted list, causing a new slew of nefarious characters to come out of the woodwork. If he wants to survive another day, Frank will once again have to rely on his old friends (John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, and Mary-Louise Parker) for help, while at the same time track down a missing portable nuclear device.
With "Galaxy Quest" director Dean Parisot at the helm, and Anthony Hopkins, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Byung Hun Lee joining the cast, we won't be too surprised if "RED 2" ranks as one of the better action rides this summer. The movie will hit theaters on August 2nd.
In RED 2, the high-octane action-comedy sequel to the worldwide sleeper hit, retired black-ops CIA agent Frank Moses reunites his unlikely team of elite operatives for a global quest to track down a missing portable nuclear device. To succeed, they'll need to survive an army of relentless assassins, ruthless terrorists and power-crazed government officials, all eager to get their hands on the next-generation weapon. The mission takes Frank and his motley crew to Paris, London and Moscow. Outgunned and outmanned, they have only their cunning wits, their old-school skills, and each other to rely on as they try to save the world -- and stay alive in the process.
