The prospect of Jason Statham beating the pineapple express right out of James Franco for about 127 hours was already something that put a smile on many a face. But then this epically violent, F-bomb laden, action packed Red Band trailer for Homefront, a new “action drama” coming from the veiny pen of Sylvester Stallone himself, comes out, and all of a sudden I’m thinking that beside for the joys of Franco-cide, this may actually be one kickass movie.
“Homefront” is an action movie about a widowed ex-DEA agent who retires to a small town for the sake of his 10-year-old daughter. The only problem is he picked the wrong town.
I feel that I need to embrace the hillbilly-ness of that trailer, and give it a WHOOO-WHEEE! because that actually seems pretty badass. And James Franco is called Gator? Yes, that makes perfect sense.
Now admittedly, we’ve probably seen a snippet of every action scene from the entire movie, but really if you’re here for reasons other than seeing Jason Statham unleash a Kentucky fried ass-whoopin’ on some redneck meth-heads, then you’ve been gravely misinformed about a few things. Did you see the part up top where I said that Sylvester Stallone wrote this?
Homefront will be breaking your legs with a baseball bat if you don’t come to see it when it releases internationally on November 27, 2013. Locally, we’ll need to wait a little longer to December 6, 2013.
