Yes, That's Helen Mirren. With a Machine Gun

I'm going to say something you don't hear very often around these parts, especially from me:

I fucking love everything about this trailer. Seriously. It touched me in that funny place. Down there. You know what I'm sayin'?

Red is based on the little-known 3-issue comic series from DC Comics by Warren Ellis, about a retired CIA operative (Bruce Willis), living a peaceful life in the country. A new administration decides that he knows too much and tries to kill him, resulting in him getting his old team of fellow retirees back together for some mayhem. The trailer plays it much more lightheartedly than the comic, and seemingly with less brutal violence, but I don't care -- it looks entertaining as hell. It's directed by Robert Schwentke, who seems an odd choice -- he's probably most well-known for directing The Time Traveler's Wife and Flightplan. Substantially more high-concept than this.

But the cast is a monster -- Willis, Dame Helen Mirren (and can I just say that the shot of her with the machine gun made me tingly), John Malkovich, Morgan Freeman, Mary Louise Parker (oh... oh goodness yes), and Karl Urban.

Oh, it also stars Ernest Borgnine, Rebecca Pigeon, Julian McMahon, and Richard Dreyfuss.

Not good enough? OK. Let's throw in Brian Fucking Cox.

I mean, holy shit. That is a cast for the ages. There's so much awesome in it -- Malkovich at his Malkovichiest kind of crazy, Morgan Freeman as a velour-clad old lecher, Mary Louise Parker's very existence... Fuck it, enough jibber jabber. Watch it. Tell me you don't love it. Just try.
