Trailer Of The Week - Week #50

When the first five words of your film's synopsis are 'Jason Statham is an assassin' then you're pretty much guaranteed our interest. Such is the case with The Mechanic which, if its trailer is anything to go by, looks to have a raft of similarities with The Stath's recent outings as The Transporter. Heavyweight support is provided in the form of Ben Foster (bets being taken now for whether he plays a snivelling loser or a macho man - this post for details) and the always welcome Donald Sutherland, whilst the film also sees the return of Con Air director Simon West to the straight action-thriller genre after a largely unsuccessful foray into horror with 2006's When A Stranger Calls. We'll reserve judgment for now but anything that features Statham leaping off several tall structures must have a fairly good chance of being decent.

Trailer Of The Week is a regular Film Intel feature which picks a different tasty trailer of delectable goodness every week and presents it on Sunday for your viewing pleasure. Sometimes old, sometimes new, sometimes major, sometimes independent, sometimes brilliant, sometimes a load of old bobbins: always guaranteed to entertain.
