‘Red 2′ Poster: The Best Never Rest…Clearly
Action stars like Bruce Willis are experiencing a renaissance of sorts. While Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone debuted ‘The Last Stand‘ and ‘Bullet to the Head‘ this year, Willis is also introducing his greatness to a new generation of movie goers with ‘A Good Day to Die Hard,’ ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation‘ and, coming later this year, ‘Red 2,’ which has just debuted its latest poster reminding us all that these star will never throw in the towel.
Willis isn’t the only oldie-but-goodie celeb showing up in this comeback actioner. As the latest teaser poster (debuting on Yahoo Movies) shows, John Malkovich, Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren are also getting in some action along with Catherine Zeta-Jones, Byung-Hun Lee and Mary-Louise Parker. And as we’ve seen with ‘Bullet to the Head,’ ‘The Last Stand’ and even ‘Die Hard 5,’ we’ve got another playful tagline — “The Best [meaning Old] Never Rest.”
As a followup to the action-comedy ‘Red,’ ‘Red 2′ reunites retired black-ops CIA agent Frank Moses with his elite operative team to track down a missing nuclear device. To stay alive, they’ll have to rely on their old-school skills. ‘Galaxy Quest’ helmer Dean Parisot is taking over directorial duties for the film, which is set to premiere August 2, as the new poster also reveals.
