Paul Walker in Brick Mansions

Relativity

The first Brick Mansions trailer from February was focused on the action elements presented in this American remake of the French film District B13. This second, full trailer wants you to know a bit more about the story. In one of his final and most physical roles, Paul Walker plays a detective looking to avenge the death of his father by entering into a neighborhood so dangerous it has been quarantined from the rest of society.

Inside, he uses an unlikely ally to take on a vicious drug kingpin played by RZA, who is looking pretty villainy. As we’ve mentioned before, it’s awesome to see Walker get into the physical stuff of the Parkour-energized film alongside French star David Belle, who was a central figure in the original film. This trailer also comes complete with a pretty slick rendition of Ben E. King song, “Stand by Me.”

For those interested, the French original District B13 and its sequel District 13: Ultimatum are currently available on Netflix Instant. They are both very much worth a watch if you’d like to get a taste for what Brick Mansions may have in store.

Brick Mansions opens April 25.
