Exclusive ‘Homefront’ TV Spot: There’s No Way This Movie Isn’t Going to Be Fantastic
There are a lot of movies coming out this fall that you can get excited about. ‘Thor 2,’ ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire‘ and ‘Oldboy‘ among them. But, perhaps no movie holds our intense interest as much as ‘Homefront‘ – the upcoming action movie written by Sylvester Stallone and starring Jason Statham and James Franco. There is no way we aren’t going to love this movie and this exclusive ‘Homefront’ TV spot is further evidence of that.
There have not been many great action movies this year, and we’re talking classic punching-up-the-bad-guys style action movies. There was ‘Fast and Furious 6‘ for sure, but beyond that, not much for action fans to really sink their teeth into (we’re still feeling the sting of ‘Escape Plan’). All that’s about to change on November 27, when ‘Homefront’ hits theaters.
The movie goes as follows.
‘Homefront’ is an action movie about a widowed ex-DEA agent who retires to a small town for the sake of his 10-year-old daughter. The only problem is he picked the wrong town.
He picked the wrong town! One of our favorite action tropes of all-time!
Beyond that, it’s important to note that James Franco plays a evil methlord named Gator Bodine (“they call him Gator for a reason,” we’re told ominously). And, at one point in the film, Jason Statham has a Nic Cage in ‘Con Air’-style mullet. Oh, and Winona Ryder and Kate Bosworth are there too. And Jason Statham is just trying to protect his kid from Gator and he impales a guy with a gas pump and shoots a guy in the kneecap and, alright, we’ll stop, but there’s just so much to like here! (If you don’t trust us, you can also watch the ‘Homefront’ red band trailer below.)
‘Homefront’ opens in theaters on Thanksgiving and we can’t think of a better way to spend that weekend. C’mon, go take your dad to go see this movie after you eat some turkey and we can almost promise you’ll have a great time. It’s Jason Statham vs. James Franco and whoever wins, WE WIN.
