Here’s the trailer for The Mechanic, a remake of the 1972 Charles Bronson flick now starring Jason Statham and the almost as bad-ass Ben Foster, who needs to be in more films. It’s a January release date, which is normally a dumping ground, but ever since Taken demonstrated that January movies could do solid box-office business, it’s been harder to write off the month. Then again, Paul Blart was a January release, too.
Still, The Statham. He does lots of wrong, but he does it with attitude. And he’s ripped liked a shredded pair of Buttafuoco pants.
