Earlier, we ran a trailer for Harry Brown
starring Michael Caine
and today IGN has debuted an official red band trailer and a clip from the movie.
Caine in his seventies still looks cool and dangerous and plays the title character who decides to take violent action once his friend is murdered.
Described as a “modern urban western” the titular Harry Brown (Caine) is an elderly widower and ex-marine who has lived to see his neighbourhood overrun by violent gangs, drugs and crime. When his best friend Leonard (David Bradley
) is brutally murdered and the gang leader responsible walks free, Harry finds himself snapping.
Soon, his desire for revenge leads to the unlikely vigilante facing up to the young thugs, with terrifying results.
The crime thriller directed by British filmmaker Daniel Barber
from the script written by Gary Young
also stars Emily Mortimer, Liam Cunningham, Charlie Creed-Miles, Iain Glen, Sean Harris
and Ben Drew
among other British actors.
