Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren in explosive new trailer for “Red”

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: “Red” strikes me as “Sin City” with a sense of humor. And that’s a very good thing.

Now, I haven’t read Warren Ellis’s graphic novel Robert Schwentke is adapting, and I’m sure if I flipped the pages, I’d learn it’s nothing at all like Frank Miller’s gory classic. But the tone of the violence looks similarly over-the-top, with more humor brought in to balance the bloodshed.

Schwentke also found actors who could be funny as the bullets fly. Bruce Willis plays Frank Moses, a special-ops soldier forced into retirement who must reunite his lethal team after he’s attacked. The joke? They’re all seniors, essentially. Helen Mirren, John Malkovich and Morgan Freeman sign up to shoot hand cannons. Mary-Louise Parker provides the eye candy (and ooh boy, does it work!)

“Red” will be in theaters on Oct. 15, but Yahoo has the first official trailer. Watch it, and tell me if I’m way off on my “humorous Sin City” take. That’s just how this effective clip struck me.
