2013’s shaping up to be quite an action-packed year for Bruce Willis. As well as starring in the eagerly-awaited fifth Die Hard movie, he’ll also be stepping back into the shoes of retired black-ops CIA agent Frank Moses this summer in RED 2.
The movie is the sequel to 2010’s action/comedy hybrid which starred Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren as a group of over-the-hill ex-secret agents who reunite for one last mission. For the curious, RED stands for “Retired Extremely Dangerous”.
The follow-up sees Frank pulling his team together for a second time and, judging by the trailer, it looks like it’ll be a fun mix of action set-pieces and comedy moments (indeed, one scene in the teaser features a gigglesome variant on the old “Is that x in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me?” gag).
While Freeman’s not in RED 2, the film boasts the A-list likes of Anthony Hopkins, Mary-Louise Parker and Catherine Zeta Jones among its cast.
It’ll be out in UK cinemas on Friday 2 August. Enjoy the trailer:
