New Trailer for Jason Statham's Action Thriller - Wild Card

12 December 2014 12:12 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

We've got another action-packed trailer for Jason Statham's upcoming Las Vegas gambling thriller Wild Card. I'm a big fan of the films that Statham makes. Basically, every movie he stars in manages to entertain me. This latest film of his is a remake of a 1987 movie called Heat, which starred Burt Reynolds. I vaguely remember watching that movie, but this one looks like a lot of fun. It was directed by Simon West (The Mechanic and The Expendables 2), and here's the synopsis: 

Nick Wild (Jason Statham) is a Las Vegas bodyguard with lethal professional skills and a personal gambling problem.

Jason Statham is Good at Violence in French Trailer for 'Wild Card'

1 December 2014 8:10 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"I'm not violent, I'm just good at it." Formerly known as Heat, the latest film from The Mechanic and Expendables 2 director Simon West is now going by the title Wild Card. The film is actually a remake of the 1987 film starring Burt Reynolds, and this time it's Jason Statham in the lead role as Nick Wild (yes, the title is a stupid pun). This time, Statham is an ex-marine and a gambling addict, and of course he just wants to be left alone to start a new life in Las Vegas. But as is the case with all these movies, trouble finds him. Be prepared to laugh at how bad this looks in this French trailer, with some terrible dialogue. Watch! Here's the French trailer for Simon West's Wild Card (via The Film Stage): Here's the poster for the film's release in the United Kingdom and a first »
