Red to a surprising $200M, although having Helen Mirren unloading heavy artillery didn't hurt. The sequel is right around the corner with much of the same crew, and new faces Anthony Hopkins, Lee Byung-hun, and Catherine Zeta Jones. Bruce Willis is back as ex-CIA operative Frank Moses, who must hop the globe searching for a nuclear device while trying to not be killed by his old friend Victoria (Mirren), hired to take him out.
With the film less than a month out, Summit has released the first six clips, and it looks like fans of the original will have little reason not to like this one as well. The banter between Willis and John Malkovich still looks like a lot of fun, but it's the partnership between Mirren and Byung-hun that could be the showstopper. In one clip we see the car-flipping results when he gets behind the wheel and she has time to line up a good shot.
Red 2 opens on July 19th. Thanks to Collider packaging up the clips in one neat little package.
