De Niro, Statham, Owen: The 'Killer Elite' Trailer Arrives

Jun 23, 2011


Killer Elite's trailer has dropped at Yahoo! Movies, which means you get to see Robert De Niro decked out in hobo chic, Clive Owen's greasy mustache (which goes nicely with the Scorpion's rock anthem – yes, really), and Statham doing his Statham thing. Prison Break's Dominic Purcell and Chuck's Yvonne Strahovski (in a bikini?) also star. The film is a remake of the 1975 movie starring James Caan and Robert Duvall.

Statham plays a retired British Elite Special Air Service soldier who sets out to save his mentor (De Niro) who's been taken captive. Clive Owen is the big bad leading the team of three assassins that Statham has to contend with. With shades of The Expendables and every action vehicle Statham's ever done, you won't be going to see this one for its plot. Though the film is purportedly based on real events, the book that inspired the movie was discovered to possibly be fictional. Check out word around Ranulph Fiennes' The Feather Men for the scoop on that.

Killer Elite will be killing things -- and rocking you like a hurricane -- in a theater near you on September 23.
