‘The Transporter Refueled’ Trailer: Why Hast Thou Forsaken Us, Jason Statham?

As much as we adore Jason Statham, we’ll never pretend that he’s picky about his projects. Roughly half of the time spent being a fan of that scowling, head-butting British import involves suffering through his poor choices. So it’s weird to watch the new trailer for The Transporter Refueled and realize that this was the point where Statham decided “Nah, I’m good,” removing the one and only thing that could possibly make us interested in a fourth movie in this series.

If you were hoping to see larger, better, more official versions of those photos — you’re in luck. 20th Century Fox has released a batch of high-res photos featuring the Merc With a Mouth and his supporting cast.

A new trailer for the latest installment in the Transporter franchise has arrived, filled with crazy car stunts and crazier action, and a brand new leading man by way of Game of Thrones star Ed Skrein. Skrein takes on the Jason Statham role in The Transporter Refueled, which looks pretty much like every other Transporter movie, minus Statham.

Of the casting additions to the Deadpool solo movie, we already know who pretty much everyone is playing. Ryan Reynolds is Deadpool (obviously), Morena Baccarin is Copycat, T.J. Miller is Weasel, and so on. There’s been just one question mark: who is former Game of Thrones star Ed Skrein playing in the film? We now have an answer.

It’s fitting that Deadpool’s main super-power is his accelerated healing factor; you just can’t kill this guy. For years, they talked about making a Deadpool movie featuring Ryan Reynolds (who played a largely unrecognizable version of the character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine). For years, Deadpool languished in development; long enough to kill most projects. But that damn healing factor kept Deadpool alive.

‘The Transporter Refueled’ Teaser: New Star, Old Rules

“Is this the Transporter?” Those are the first words of this teaser for The Transporter Refueled, the reboot of the Euro-action series about the world’s best-dressed, most deadly delivery man. And I want to answer that question, no; this is decidedly not the Transporter. The Transporter is Jason Statham, or at least it was Jason Statham, through the franchise’s first three movies. Statham, alas, has departed, leaving Ed Skrein to assume Frank Martin’s black suit-and-tie-and-Audi.

You might not be aware, but EuropaCorp is planning a reboot of the popular 'Transporter' action franchise, which starred Jason Statham as badass Frank Martin. And now the first flick has cast its leading man: Ed Skrein, the British actor who played Daario Naharis, the Khaleesi's love interest in the third season of 'Game of Thrones.' Is Skrein man enough to take on the role popularized by Statham?
