Jason Statham steadfastly refuses to make a different film, which is bullet-based music to the ears of some fans. With the new trailer for the Mechanic remake, Statham proves he can do the thing everyone on the planet knows he can do – play a bad ass with a gun and a score to settle. Still, without the mustache, he’s only operating at 34% Bronson.

Wait. Why is this red-band again? Did someone curse in it or something?
Either way, it’s great to see Ben Foster taking on a slightly differently role. The guy is one of the best in the business, but he hides away in the indie world (no complaints there, really) even though he deserves a bit more main stream success. Foster could and should have Jeremy Renner’s career a year from now.
On the Statham side of things, it’s business as usual. The Mechanic promises to be a completely passable action-packed time at the movies. Which they’ll probably put on the poster.
On a side note, though, my heartfelt thanks go out to the makers of this trailer for not using that incredibly annoying “Click Click Boom!” song. It’s appreciated.
