Repo Men red band trailer looks superb
Stylish, violent, bloody, and buddies turned against each other, what more could you want? Oh yes, why not a man who was once in the system, becoming part of the system and trying to bring it down? Repo Men has everything including top notch actors, and the trailer is superb.
Miguel Sapochnik directs the screenplay from television writer Garrett Lerner and Matchstick Men writer Eric Garcia, which stars Jude Law, Forest Whitaker, Liev Schreiber, Alice Braga, Carice van Houten and RZA. Cool line-up don't you think?
Then there's the trailer and how it looks, and in this dark, not too distant looking future, the style seems to be subtle but palatable throughout. However what is clear is that despite that, and the amount of gore and blood, the desire to break the system and the relationship of the two ex-Repo partners, is at the fore, and that's a huge bonus.
The story sees a world where people buy new organs from major corporations. They are very expensive and so have to be paid off over a long period of time, and people default, can't pay and simply won't pay, so the company's Repo Men arrive on the scene to repossess them, replacing your old organs. Nice.
An accident happens one day to a Repo Man and he ends up with a new heart and a plan to pay it off, but when he finds he can no longer repossess people's organs because of the fear of what's happened, and could happen to him, he defaults and the company send their Repo Men after him. Bad news is that he's good, he's the best, alongside his partner of course.
So it's bring down the company and the system, or stay on the run forever.
What I like is that the trailer isn't making out all that blood and gore to be the central theme, it's part of the job, and it's also good that they haven't just gone and covered it all up either.
Have a look and see what you think, but I'm pretty excited about the film now.
