Watch the new red-band trailer of ‘Homefront,’ an action-thriller written by Sylvester Stallone and starring Jason Statham and James Franco, as an ex-DEA agent and meth-cooking drug lord respectively.
The movie was directed by Gary Fleder (‘The Express,’ ‘Runaway Jury’) from Sylvester Stallone’s screen adaptation of the novel of the same title by Chuck Logan. Stallone, for those who may have forgotten got an Oscar nomination for his original screenplay of his iconic, breakthrough movie ‘Rocky.’ It leaves many curious to see what he has done with ‘Homefront’ and its Phil Broker character, who reoccurs in several Chuck Logan novels.
It’s Jason Statham (‘The Expendables,’ ‘Fast & Furious 6′) who portrays the former DEA agent Phil Broker, a widower and father of a 10-year-old daughter whose peaceful, small-town titular homefront is disrupted. Alas, isn’t that always the case?! Retirement plans are often foiled when one’s path crosses with that of the local ruling meth kingpin. In this case his name is Gator Bodine and he is portrayed by James Falco (‘Oz the Great and Powerful,’ ‘Spring Breakers’). The actor removes all doubt in those who think he can’t fully inhabit the role of an extremely sadistic and violent character and domineering overseer of his even more violent minions.
The red-band trailer for the deservedly R-rated ‘Homefront’ is unsparing with its extreme and graphic violence and explicit language. In other words, expect a lot of blood, death, F-bombs and drug use. Consider it NSFW, unless you are a drug trafficker or a hired assassin, in which case it may be SFW as well as instructional.
‘Homefront’ costars Winona Ryder, Kate Bosworth, Mischa Barton, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Frank Grillo among others. The movie opens in theaters at Thanksgiving time, on November 27th. The full-length trailer is below!
