Dave Bautista takes on the entire assassin underworld in The Killer’s Game trailer

It’s lastly Dave Bautista’s time to shine as a bona fide motion lead. The first trailer for The Killer’s Game, an assassin comedy with a star-studded solid and motion royalty behind the digicam, has dropped. The film, primarily based on the novel by The Strolling Useless comics co-writer Jay Bonansinga, is coming to theaters September 13.

Bautista performs an assassin recognized with a terminal sickness who decides to place out a success on himself for a fast demise, quite than have him and his accomplice undergo by the deterioration of his well being. However when he finds out his physician made a mistake and he’s not really dying, he has to fend for his life towards a few of the deadliest killers in the world. It’s a bit just like the arrange of final yr’s King of Killers, starring Frank Grillo as an assassin who put out a success on himself, however with a extra enjoyable twist and a way more thrilling lineup.

Bautista has been largely relegated to facet roles in the motion style, and right here’s an actual probability for him to shine in a style well-suited to his appreciable expertise. And you may guess he’ll shine, with the help round him. The Killer’s Game is directed by legendary stunt performer and motion director J.J. Perry, who has been concerned in a major share of the nice American motion motion pictures of the previous 30 years, from Blade to John Wick. Perry’s function debut as a director, Day Shift, was a enjoyable vampire motion comedy starring Jamie Foxx with artistic motion choreography and digicam work.

Bautista may even have extra help than simply Perry. The Killer’s Game has a tantalizing solid, with Ben Kingsley (I’m obsessive about how he says “There are only two ways out of the killer’s game, Joseph”), Pom Klementieff, Sofia Boutella, Terry Crews, and WWE wrestler Drew McIntyre all concerned. For the motion diehards, the presence of Scott Adkins, Marko Zaror (who options closely in the trailer), and Daniel Bernhardt is particularly interesting. All three are legends in their very own proper, and Bernhardt in specific has made a profession of constructing film stars look god at kicking his ass (Atomic Blonde, No person).

The venture’s been in the works just about since Bonansinga’s novel got here out in 1997. At completely different factors over the previous few many years, Wesley Snipes, Michael Keaton, and Jason Statham have been every connected in the lead function. However in the end, it’s Bautista who bought the half, and it looks as if a promising car for his mixture of appeal, humor, and bodily capacity as a former skilled athlete.

The trailer advertises a lot of motion and loads of gore, as Bautista shoots, stabs, and garrotes his means by a bevy of targets. The comedy’s a bit hit-or-miss for me in the trailer, however that’s how trailers go generally. The lineup of expertise and the teases of nice motion are greater than sufficient for me to be counting down the days to September.
