Apple has debuted the second full-length trailer for Armored, the upcoming action film from director Nimrod Antal. If you recognize that name, it is because Antal has been tapped by Robert Rodriguez to direct Predators, which is currently gearing up for production here in Austin. But before he brings back the Predator, he will test the patience of audiences with this armored-truck heist film starring Matt Dillon, Laurence Fishburne, Skeet Ulrich and Jean Reno. Wait, all of these guys are still working? In the same movie? Fascinating…
The trailer itself is a little less than fascinating. The first three quarters of the trailer is filled with recycled footage from the first trailer, the last quarter of the trailer is a mix of old and new footage. Overall, it doesn’t look new — or any more exciting. Call my a cynic, but this movie does not look like anything more than a derivative heist flick.
Armored is in theaters December 4, 2009. Check out the trailer for yourself below, followed by the film’s official synopsis.
A crew of officers at an armored transport security firm risk their lives when they embark on the ultimate heist….against their own company. Armed with a seemingly fool-proof plan, the men plan on making off with a fortune with harm to none. But when an unexpected witness interferes, the plan quickly unravels and all bets are off.
