Red Band Trailer For Blitz Is Pretty Brutal

At some point you'd think that police departments around the world would just start hiring action stars as part of their crime fighting units. A armed robber might not have a problem taking a few shots at a nameless, faceless policeman, but I would think even the toughest criminal would shit their pants at the sight of 1986-era Arnold Schwarzenegger or 1974-era Charles Bronson. If you're selecting one actor from today's line-up of stars, however, I'm not sure you can choose anyone other than Jason Statham, and this trailer proves why.

IGN has posted a new redband spot for Blitz, and while it seems like your typical Statham movie, that's just code for "it looks awesome." In the film, directed by Elliott Lester, a serial killer who targets police officers is on the loose and it is up to none-other-than Jason Statham to stop him.

Check out the trailer below.

I must say that I was actually kind of surprised how brutal this movie looks. Sure, American History X introduced the world to the curb stomp, but it's a bit different when a) the victim is looking up and b) you actually see boot enter face. I'm really just hoping that it serves to make the murderer look like a true monster so when Statham puts him down in the end audiences across the world will cheer. Blitz hits UK theaters on May 6.
