RED 2 has released an insanely infectious new trailer which delves deeper into the latest adventure of our heroic aging ass-kickers.
Unfortunately for our grizzled love-stricken protagonist, Frank Moses (Bruce Willis), his current life could be defined by the famous quote from The Godfather: Part III (which was arguably the only redeeming part of that film): "Just when I thought I was out...they pull me back in." Indeed, even an innocuous Costco outing to pick up a gross of denture paste with his new main squeeze, Sarah Ross (Mary-Louise Parker) can't go according to plan as his old paranoid pal, Marvin Boggs (John Malkovich) appears out of thin air like a demented soothsayer, spouting rants that forebode yet another intrusion of Frank's past as a CIA assassin into his currently mellow life.
Of course, the intricately-woven plot unfolds and it seems that Frank and Marvin were mysteriously held culpable for a missing late Cold War-era megaton bomb built to be smuggled in pieces and now it seems he needs to find it before untold disaster occurs. Unfortunately, their biggest lead is the institutionalized mad scientist who made the bomb back in the day, Edward Bailey (Anthony Hopkins), who, let's just say is locked up for a reason. As if being framed and dealing with his lunacy was not enough, a hit has been placed on Frank's head, sending old killing buddy, Victoria (Helen Mirren) on his trail, as a well as a dangerous younger assassin said to be the best contract killer in the world who you could almost say strikes like a "Storm Shadow", played by Byung-hun Lee. Things get way out of control and Frank needs to turn to the help of a voluptuous old flame in Miranda Wood (Catherine Zeta-Jones), who isn't exactly observing decorum with PDA when it comes to Frank, despite his current beau, Sarah being ever-present.
RED 2 takes time away from killing to explode toilets and make awkward toasts when it hits theaters on July 19. Check out the new trailer below!
