Dame cougar Helen Mirren must have a thing for playing retired ass-kickers. Earlier this week we glimpsed her in the first trailer for The Debt as an ex-agent of the Israeli Moussad. And now we see her in Red in a similar, but albeit campy role, alongside veterans Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman and John Malcovich. This looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun.
Frank (Bruce Willis), Joe (Morgan Freeman), Marvin (John Malkovich) and Victoria (Helen Mirren) used to be the CIA’s top agents – but the secrets they know just made them the Agency’s top targets. Now framed for assassination, they must use all of their collective cunning, experience and teamwork to stay one step ahead of their deadly pursuers and stay alive. To stop the operation, the team embarks on an impossible, cross-country mission to break into the top-secret CIA headquarters, where they will uncover one of the biggest conspiracies and cover-ups in government history.
