Watch a Trailer in Which Sean Penn Pretty Much Plays Liam Neeson

12 December 2014 2:45 PM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The trailer for The Gunman, the big-screen adaptation of the bestselling novel The Prone Gunman by Jean-Patrick Manchette, has arrived. Sean Penn plays Jim, an assassin who decides he wants out of the business, but his organization isn't letting him go just like that. His big, bad boss (Javier Bardem) is pissed, and war between the two ensues. Things get real when Jim's girlfriend (Jasmine Trinca) is kidnapped and he has to go into full-on Liam Neeson mode. The film's director, Pierre Morel, also directed Taken, so the parallel isn't too far-fetched. The movie opens on March 20; get a peek with the trailer below, and then check out all the movie trailers for films opening in 2015! »

The Gunman Trailer: Sean Penn Begins His Liam Neeson Period

12 December 2014 10:16 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The Gunman. Call it a prestige version of Taken. It even has the same director. The difference? In the place of Liam NeesonThe Gunman stars multiple Academy Award winner and very serious actor Sean Penn. Based on the first trailer, released today and presented for your viewing pleasure below, the story seems pretty similar. Penn plays a former killer whose past comes back to haunt him, leaving him with his back to the wall and a gun in his hand. Hard Cut to: he shoots his way out. Watch The Gunman trailer below: The hard sell for real nerds is director Pierre Morel. This guy has worked on some of the most electric and operatic action movies of the past decade. He was a cinematographer on the first two Transporter movies and Louis Leterrier’s Unleashed, he directed the French thriller District B13 and the first Taken film. He even gave us the radically insane hot »

It's Sean Penn vs. Javier Bardem in the action-packed trailer for The Gunman

12 December 2014 6:25 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

With Taken 3 looking like the last entry in the Liam Neeson franchise, we are going to need another aging actor used to critical acclaim to kick ass with a particular set of skills. Luckily, Sean Penn was willing to take a break from his humanitarian efforts around the world to wield some serious firepower for Pierre Morel in The Gunman. Co-starring Ray Winstone, Mark Rylance, Idris Elba, and Javier Bardem, The Gunman has a cast that rivals any number of studio pictures and yet feels like »

First Trailer For The Gunman Shoots In

11 December 2014 8:40 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

“Retired” hit men. Former special ops officers. Ex-Mob enforcers. What do they have in common? If they’re on screen, they’ve got big problems, and usually a family member or two just waiting to get caught in the crosshairs when their past comes firing back to bother them. That’s what’s facing Sean Penn in the first promo for The Gunman, arriving via Yahoo. Penn plays Jim Terrier, a former special forces-type still haunted by the things he did when he was on active duty. And one particular mission is itching at his conscience, a job that was supposed to help people, but ended up more in tragedy than triumph.So when he decides to expose what really happened, he becomes the target of his former fellow shooters and bosses, with the likes of Mark Rylance, Ray Winstone, Idris Elba and Javier Bardem out to get him.

Sean Penn Goes Ballistic in Trailer for His Action-Thriller The Gunman

11 December 2014 3:31 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Sean Penn has jumped into the old man action film genre with Taken director Pierre Morel in his upcoming film The Gunman. I never thought I'd see Penn do a movie like this at his age, but here he is, and he's kicking ass. Morel managed to bring together a great cast of actors to fill the roles in this movie. Those actors include Javier BardemIdris ElbaRay Winstone and Mark Rylance.

Penn plays a special ops sniper who is looking to retire, after one final job. As you might expect in a movie like this, he can't retire because he's being targeted by his own group. So what does he do? He fights back and threatens to expose all their covert actions. It seems like the typical action film, which makes me wonder even more why Penn took the gig. He doesn't tend to do typical films. Regardless, »

Here's the trailer for one of a handful of films that Idris Elba has a role in, but doesn't star, even though, he very well could have (see my "Is Idris Elba a Hollywood Leading Man Yet?" post from earlier this week, for context).  The actor joins Sean Penn and Javier Bardem in director Pierre Morel's action thriller titled "The Gunman," which is based on the novel, "The Prone Gunman," by Jean-Patrick Manchette.

Sean Penn Has Javier Bardem In His Sights In The Gunman Trailer

11 December 2014 12:16 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Director Pierre Morel launched Liam Neeson into the starry stratosphere in abduction thriller Taken, and that’s a formula he seems intent on continuing. His latest entry into the action canon, The Gunman, sees him switch out Neeson’s grizzled Brian Mills for Sean Penn’s hitman. The names may have changed, but the game remains the same, as judging by this first trailer there’s loads of weapons, explosions and sour-faced do-gooders.

Ahead of the film’s spring release, the debut of its trailer offers a by-the-numbers glimpse at what we can expect on the big screen. Penned by Pete Travis (Dredd) and based on the novel by Jean-Patrick Manchette, The Gunman follows Penn’s Jim Terrier, an international assassin who longs to put his murderous days behind him. When his former organization vows to silence him on their exploits, they kidnap his girlfriend (Jasmine Trinca), prompting Terrier to »

'The Gunman' Trailer Starring Sean Penn

11 December 2014 12:15 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After appearing in mostly dramas for the better part of a decade, acclaimed actor Sean Penn takes on a completely different kind of role than we're used to seeing in The Gunman. Pierre Morel, director of the fan-favorite Taken starring Liam Neeson, is ready to turn Penn into an action star in this adaptation of Jean-Patrick Manchette's 'The Prone Gunman'. Open Road Films has released the first trailer and poster for this thriller.

Sean Penn stars as Jim Terrier, an international operative who is betrayed by the organization he works for, and must go on the run in a relentless game of cat and mouse across Europe. While Penn is seen picking up a gun for some intense action scenes, his presence brings a new and unique spin to the genre unlike anything we've ever seen before. Prepare yourself, you may not be ready!

The Gunman has a great ensemble cast, »

Watch: Sean Penn is Targeted in Pierre Morel's 'The Gunman' Trailer

11 December 2014 12:09 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"It's the ones who aren't after you who do you in, in the end." It's been about a year and a half since we got a first look at Sean Penn in Pierre Morel's action thriller The Gunman, and for some reason the film has taken a long time to hit the big screen. But it's finally arriving next spring, and the first trailer has arrived, showcasing an impressive cast that also includes Javier Bardem, Idris Elba and more. In the film, Penn plays a Special Forces soldier who ends up getting targeted by his own colleagues. Basically, it's Sean Penn's turn to be an aging bad ass, and it seems to pack the same punch as the first Taken movie too. Here's the first trailer for Pierre Morel's The Gunman, originally from Yahoo: The Gunman is directed by Pierre Morel (Taken, From Paris with Love, District B13 »

Sean Penn and Javier Bardem Are Frenemies in First The Gunman Trailer

11 December 2014 11:55 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Open Road Films has released the first The Gunman trailer for the upcoming action-thriller, based on the novel of the same name.  The film stars Sean Penn as a hitman who attempts to leave his job behind for the woman he loves, only to find that the actuality of giving up the professional killing game is much harder than expected.  If you get a strong Taken vibe from this trailer, that’s probably because the film is directed by Taken helmer Pierre Morel.  The cast is certainly impressive, with Javier Bardem giving a slightly over-the-top performance as Penn’s friend-turned-enemy, but it’s tough to shake the feeling that we’ve seen this before and The Gunman isn’t bringing anything new to the table.  On account of the ensemble, though, I’m willing to at least give this one a shot. Check out the first The Gunman trailer after the jump. »
