Before I even say anything about this first trailer for The Prince aka Talented Actors Need Paychecks Too, I would like to draw your attention to the film’s poster and its crimes. The transgression that immediately jumps to the fore is that level of photoshoppery on it, is just TOO DAMN HIGH! Everybody looks like their wax-museum counterparts, only not as life like. Secondly, would it really have been too much effort to have John Cusack and Jason Patric’s names actually be listed under the correct respective actor? The fact that nobody thought that this was important enough just smacks of laziness and cheapness.
And those two traits seem to carry through to the movie as a whole, because besides boasting Bruce Willis, Patric and Cusack in the film’s leads, this thing looks like a bargain bin ripoff of [INSERT POPULAR ACTION MOVIE OF CHOICE HERE].
Jason Patric, Bruce Willis and John Cusack face off in this action-packed thriller. A retired assassin is drawn back into the life he gave up when his daughter is kidnapped. To rescue her, he must confront his former rival.
The Prince is directed by Brian A. Miller (House of the Rising Sun, Officer Down) and also stars Jung Ji-Hoon a.k.a Rain, Jessica Lowndes, Johnathon Schaech, Gia Mantegna and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson. The film is scheduled for limited theatrical and VOD release on August 22, 2014.
