This summer brings Red 2, a sequel scripted by the first film’s Jon and Erich Hoeber, but without a Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner comic to build on this time.
The director of this sequel is Dean Parisot, who peaked with Galaxy Quest. Here’s hoping there’s at least a twin peak in his career somewhere, maybe here.
Judging from this first trailer Mary-Louise Parker doesn’t seem to have aged a day since the first Red. To be honest, she only seems to have aged a week in the last ten years.
Well, that’s pretty funny. It’s disappointing that all we see of Byung-Hun Lee is a bit of martial arts, but I shouldn’t be surprised.
Download or play the trailer in HD at Apple.
UPDATE: I’ve checked more closely. I think Parker’s actually ageing backwards now.
