Sony Pictures has unveiled another adrenaline pumping international trailer for their upcoming Valiant Comics adaptation starring Vin Diesel as Bloodshot. The new tease gives us even more footage from the February release and highlights the super soldiers that are created by the character Dr. Emil Harting played by Guy Pearce. Check it out below!
Official Synopsis: After he and his wife are murdered, Marine Ray Garrison (played by Vin Diesel) is resurrected by a secret team of scientists. Enhanced with nanotechnology, he becomes a superhuman, biotech killing machine – “Bloodshot.” As Ray first trains with fellow super-soldiers, he cannot recall anything from his former life. But when his memories flood back and he remembers the man that killed both he and his beautiful wife, he breaks out of the facility hellbent on revenge, only to discover that there’s more to the conspiracy than he thought.
Helmed by Dave Wilson, who is best known for working with Deadpool Helmer Tim Miller at Blur Studios, the film also stars Toby Kebbell (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Sam Heughan (Outlander), Eiza Gonzalez (Baby Driver),Talulah Riley (Westworld), Johannes Haukur Johannesson (Game of Thrones), Lamorne Morris (New Girl, Game Night), Guy Pearce (Prometheus) and Alex Hernandez (Unreal). The script was penned by Eric Heisserer who is an Oscar nomination writer and Diesel is reunited with his Fast And Furious and original xXx producer Neil Moritz
I know this film will surely take some hits from fans and critics alike but I’m excited for it and the action and Diesel himself look great in it. Like I said in my previous post, I was sold when I saw Diesel’s face get blown off only to repair itself as he then unloads two pistols at the enemy.
Bloodshot explodes into theaters on March 13th after being shuffled from its original February release.
