Righteous Kill trailer online

RobertDeNiro.jpgThe first trailer has arrived for the Robert De Niro and Al Pacino film Righteous Kill, and it's a real mixed bag.

The trailer really does contain some rough cuts, and it doesn't look like it's polished or made from finished footage. However De Niro does look and sound like he's really giving the performance his all.

Righteous Kill sees Robert De Niro and Al Pacino as policemen who are investigating a string of killings in New York. The killings appear to be made by a vigilante, and they actually believe they might be made by a policeman.

Not only does it star these two big names, but it also has Carla Gugino, Donnie Wahlberg, John Leguizamo and Brian Dennehy. Now that's a cool line up in my book.

However the footage does look very unpolished, and some shots actually look like off camera footage. Still, polished or not, this is the first look at Righteous Kill and it's looking pretty interesting.

You can see the footage over at IESB [Flash].



that trailer is just bad. I hope its just a leaked first cut. The sound is terrible and like you say im sure there is some off camera footage in there at the end. In fact It looks like the camera is behind Brian Dennehy's head at the end.

It looks like it was made in the 80s.

First impression? Not impressed I must say, even if it is rough footage put together. Apart from the two leads what does this film have to offer?

The story sounds weak and unoriginal and so does the rest of the film. De Niro and Pacino could and should do better.

Did you guys come away with a possible ending/twist pretty transparent after it? I certainly did considering what the plot is, I can kind of see it coming a mile off.

Of course I hope I'm wrong.

I hope we're also wrong about this trailer, you're both right, there's not much redeeming about it. Has to be a rough cut.
