After squaring away a significant amount of Bond movies, Pierce Brosnan still can’t shake off the action. In his post-007 career, the actor has turned in a handful of standard shoot-em-up affairs, but none that are likely to stand the test of time in comparison to the world’s favorite secret agent. Bearing that in mind, will 2015 be Brosnan’s year to shine? It just may be, as he has another couple of actioners due for release, including No Escape and the subject of today’s trailer: Survivor.
Directed by James McTeigue (V For Vendetta, Ninja Assassin) the movie revolves around a Foreign Service Officer (Milla Jovovich). The target of a ruthless assassin (Brosnan) attempting to take her out for a terrorist hit she committed, she must avoid his deadly attempts, try to clear her name after being framed And stop the actual perpetrators of the attack.

Are you tired of seeing Pierce Brosnan as the heroic, handsome Mr. Niceguy? Then have we got a movie for you. In Survivor, the former Bond actor trades in his charming charisma for an evil grin as he chases down and tries to kill the unstoppable Milla Jovovich. Judging from the just released trailer, she might actually kill him first!
After being mysteriously framed for a terrorist bombing, a Foreign Service Officer (Milla Jovovich) must evade government capture and death by a ruthless assassin (Pierce Brosnan) in order to stop the real perpetrators' master, and much deadlier, plan. The film marks a rare villainous turn for Pierce Brosnan, who pulls out all the stops to capture his prey after chasing her throughout London. Milla Jovovich proves to be her usual self, capable of handling any dangerous situation that comes her way, evading capture as she tries to stop a plan that could kill hundred, »
Pierce Brosnan played James Bond from 1994 to 2005, so clearly he knows his way around action fare. Yet his latest attempts at trying to position himself as a Liam Neeson-esque aging action star haven't been working out. You probably already forgot about last year's "The November Man," and this coming summer he's got the pretty terrible looking "No Escape" with Owen Wilson, but first is "Survivor" which I didn't even know existed, and a new trailer has arrived. James McTeigue ("V For Vendetta," "Ninja Assassin") directs this film about a Foreign Service Officer who is targeted by a ruthless assassin while trying to clear his name after being framed for a terrorist bombing and to stop the real bad guys' actual plan. That sounds exhausting. Dylan McDermott, Angela Bassett and Robert Forster also feature in this movie that has no shortage of electronic gadgets and actors looking aghast. "Survivor" arrives in theaters. »

"If you get her in your sight, do no hesitate." Pierce Brosnan took the hero role in last year's action thriller The November Man, but this year he's in villain mode for a new action thriller called Survivor. This time it's Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil) on the run as she's being framed for a terrorist bombing that Brosnan's infamous assassin character executed. It seems like a pretty generic plot, but Brosnan is doing some pretty slick stuff in this trailer. In fact, he seems to get more screentime than Jovovich, which doesn't really seem fair to the actress, but Brosnan is a James Bond veteran, so he'll help sell the movie too. Watch? Here's the first trailer for James McTeigue's Survivor, originally from Yahoo: Survivor is directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Ninja Assassin, The Invasion, The Raven) and written by Philip Shelby (Mechanic: Resurrection). After being mysteriously framed for a terrorist bombing, »

Remember James McTeigue, director of V for Vendetta, Ninja Assassin and The Ravenc Well, it appears his career continues its steady slide as he has now directed a movie I didn't even know existed until a few minutes ago, which is a bit of a curiousity considering the cast includes Pierce Brosnan, Milla Jovovich, Dylan McDermott, Angela Bassett and Robert Forster. The movie is Survivor and it centers on a Foreign Service Officer (Jovovich), who must evade government capture and death by a ruthless assassin (Pierce Brosnan) in order to stop the real perpetrator of a terrorist bombing she is being framed for. Alchemy will release Survivor in theaters and on demand on May 29 and just below is the first trailer if you're interested in checking it out. »

Kingsman: the Secret Service is the fifth directorial effort from director Matthew Vaughan and yet another film that I thoroughly enjoyed. I should mention that I have been a fan of Mark Vaughan’s work since Layer Cake, one of my favorite British gangster movies and Vaughan’s first feature. So I admit I’m a little biased, I loved Kick Ass, I really loved X-Men: First Class, and I was so excited when I heard about this film. Yes, I know I left out Stardust, yes, it’s because I really didn’t like it.
Based on yet another comic by Mark Millar, Kingsman is a breathtaking re-imagination of the whole British spy genre…and then some. Interestingly enough this is not the first Mark Millar project Vaughan has helmed, the first being Kick –Ass 1 (the better one). Vaughan is also credited as “co-plotter” on The Secret Service, the »
