We review new movie trailers for “Super Troopers 2,” “Death Wish,” and the upcoming buddy cop film “Dragged Across Concrete” on this week’s “Nick at Night.”
The first trailer was for the long awaited sequel to the popular film “Super Troopers” (2001). Comedy troop Broken Lizard has fallen off the map as of late. They arrived on the scene with the original “Super Troopers” and rebounded nicely with slasher spoof “Club Dread” (2004). Yet they haven’t written a winner in over a decade. They’re long overdue, and it looks like they may have found their stride by going back to their roots. The original cast is returning with a release date of 4/20. Smells like a winner.
Eli Roth is behind the camera again directing the new “Death Wish” remake starring Bruce Willis. This new incarnation of the Charles Bronson classic sees Willis become a vigilante on the streets of Chicago, after his family is violently attack. Roth is known for so called “gore porn” films and could match up well with this genre. However, it runs the risk of going over the top and turning off mainstream audiences. It’s a 50/50 split on whether or not this is worth going to the theater for, but we have faith that Willis will deliver.
The final film was “Dragged Across Concrete.” No trailer has been released yet but it’s a buddy cop move starring Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn. What more do you need to know? It’s due out sometime in 2018, and lists a rundown of the script on IMDB:
The script centers on two policemen, one an old-timer (Gibson), the other his volatile younger partner (Vaughn), who find themselves suspended when a video of their strong-arm tactics become the media’s cause du jour. Low on cash and with no other options, these two embittered soldiers descend into the criminal underworld to gain their just due, but instead find far more than they wanted awaiting them in the shadows.
Join us next week where we will be reviewing more trailers and newly released films, so we can dig through Hollywood’s trash and find those diamonds in the rough.
