Trailer watch: Jason Statham, Clive Owen in Killer Elite

Filmed about 15 minutes from where I live, Jason Statham, Clive Owen, Robert DeNiro and local heroine Yvonne Strahovski team up for Killer Elite; a remake of the Sam Peckinpah-directed 1975 thriller that starred Robert Duvall and James Caan.

Bonus points for having an Australian-shot film that doesn’t have an AC/DC song involved in the previews. Klaus Meine is stoked.

Trailer watch: Jason Statham in ‘The Mechanic’

The brand new trailer for director Simon West’s remake of The Mechanic has made its explosive debut.

The film, starring Jason Statham, is a remake of the 1972 Charles Bronson film of the same name and follows the story of an assassin avenging the death of his close friend and mentor (Donald Sutherland). Things get complicated when the son of his friend enters the fray.

The characters in the Simon West (Con Air, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider) version bares the same names as the original, but the plot of the original has received a tweak (you’ll have to watch the original).

As a long time fan of Charles Bronson,  it is good to see that the person filling one of the most badass shoes in film history is a serious badass himself. Few could ever take the mantle of Mr. Bronson, Jason Statham is one of them.

The Mechanic co-stars Ben Foster and Donald Sutherland, and is due in cinemas January 28, 2011.

Trailer watch: Jason Statham in ‘Blitz’

The trailer for Jason Statham starring action flick Blitz is now online. The film stars Jason Statham’s usual bad-ass self seeking answers in the serial killing of police officers in England.

We are pretty sure that the serial killer behind these killings will get their due justice at the conclusion of this flick. The film is the first produced by Lionsgate UK, and is expected in cinemas sometime in 2011. It co-stars David Morrissey and Paddy Considine.

Statham was last seen in this year’s testosterone-filled blockbuster The Expendables and will feature next year in the Charles Bronson film remake The Mechanic and, we kid you not, the garden gnome animated adaptation of Romeo & Juliet titled Gnomeo & Juliet. We wish we were making this stuff up.
