HOLLYWOOD SPY EXCLUSIVE SPOTLIGHT ON "RED 2" WITH BRUCE WILLIS, HELEN MIRREN, CATHERINE ZETA JONES, ANTHONY HOPKINS, JOHN MALKOVICH AND BRIAN COX

 Today we spotlight a sequel to the mega successful action comedy RED which earned almost $200 million in cinemas worldwide (starring Bruce Willis, Karl Urban and Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren) with the story about a black-ops agent Frank Moses who reassembles his old team of retired agents in a last ditch effort to survive and uncover his assailants. They were RED - Retired Extremely Dangerous! The sequel RED 2, advertised as THE BEST NEVER REST, should hit cinemas July 19th!

  RED 2 STORY
 THE BEST NEVER REST 
In the highly anticipated RED 2, the high-octane action comedy sequel to the worldwide sleeper hit, retired black-ops CIA agent Frank Moses reunites his unlikely team of elite operatives for a global quest to track down a missing portable nuclear device. To succeed, they’ll need to survive an army of relentless assassins, ruthless terrorists and power crazed government officials, all eager to get their hands on the next generation weapon. The mission takes Frank and his motley crew to Paris, London and Moscow. Outgunned and outmanned, they have only their cunning wits, their old-school skills, and each other to rely on as they try to save the world—and stay alive in the process. Bruce Willis' Frank Moses is on Interpol's most-wanted list, making a run for it through Europe, once again with girlfriend Sarah (Mary Louise Parker) in tow and crazy Marvin (John Malkovich) roped in to help. Catherine Zeta Jones is one of Frank's dangerous ex-girlfriends, with Anthony Hopkins also in the enemy camp. It seems even Victoria (Helen Mirren) is against Frank this time, but all may not be as it seems.

  RED 2 CAST
 WORLDWIDE ACTION
The film will reunite the team of retired CIA operatives with some new friends as they use their 'old-school style' to take on new enemies in Europe. The cast is again lead by Bruce Willis as Frank Moses, with John Malkovich as Marvin Boggs, Mary-Louise Parker as Sarah Ross, Catherine Zeta Jones as Miranda Wood, Lee Byung-hun as Han, Anthony Hopkins as Edward Bradley the villain in the story, Helen Mirren as Victoria, Brian Cox as Ivan Simanov, David Thewlis as The Frog, an information dealer who got his name by poisoning the water supply at the Kremlin using a poisonous Amazonian frog, and Neal McDonough playing the motley crew of retired assassins returning for a second outing. The film is directed by Dean Parisot who mostly worked on television before helming shows such as MONK, THE GOOD WIFE, MODERN FAMILY....The story of the film takes our retired heroes all the way to London, Moscow and Paris!

  1. Very cool. I did like the original. I don't know if I've asked this before, but have you watched Davinci's Demons or Vikings? I picked up both of these shows on your recommedations/spotlights, and they're really kind of "meh."

    I actually think I'm going to stop watching DaVinci's Demons. I might continue to try and like Vikings.

    1. VIKINGS are horrid, both visually and storywise, and I hate the glorification of evil bloodthirsty invaders in it. It is an example of how current superficial generations seek savage entertainment and see heroes in badass villains :(

      DA VINCI'S DEMONS was good in the first episode (it started airing this week here in my country), loved the visuals, the style and the story and the cast is simply outstanding. The second season has already been ordered since the show has become a hit worldwide. I've spoken with both Tom Riley and Elliott Cowan from the cast, and both are deeply delightful people.

    2. Maybe I'll stick with DaVinci's Demons. I think all actors would be delightful people. That's what charisma is all about, and you have to have charisma to be in the business.

      I most likely will give up on trying to like Vikings.

    3. not just charisma, but kindness, the two of them are very humble and very dear and very thankful when you write about them.
      Laura Haddock who plays the lead female role is also a graceful and kind lady and she tweeted about HOLLYWOOD SPY a couple of times (probably because she knows I've supported the career of her fiancee Sam Claflin for two years now) :)

  6. Quite enjoyed the first, Red, although I'm getting a bit tired of all the violence. Don't suppose the second one will be any different?

  7. I know this is not your cuppa darling, but it is mine. With that cast and the comedy, I would pay money to watch it in the cinema. And that's not something I'm willing to do anymore. I also like the soundtrack. AC/DC can't go wrong with that.

    2. Me likes Helen and you know how I feel about Bruce. Plus this is about old farts who can still kick it. Gives one hope that in 20 years I'll be this cool.
