Following the success of the movie RED, there was no real surprise when it was announced that they would be making a sequel. Now, RED 2 is set to be released later this year and we have been given a few bits of promotional material, which will increase as we near the release. A new trailer for RED 2 has been released and it shows Helen Mirren and Bruce Willis returning to what they did best in the first movie.
The synopsis for RED 2 is as follows:
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.
As well as starring Helen Mirren and Bruce Willis, RED 2 also stars John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker, Anthony Hopkins, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Byung Hun Lee, Brian Cox and Neal McDonough. RED 2 is directed by Dean Parisot, based on the screenplay by Jon Hoeber and Erich Hoeber, and is set to be released on August 2 in both the US and the UK.
