I’m pretty sure everyone knows how excited I am for the new action film Boss Level which takes the concept of Groundhog’s Day and totally turns it into a kick ass throwback action flick like we haven’t seen before.
As promotion starts to gear up for the movie, which was helmed by Joe Carnahan had stars action legend Mel Gibson and the always awesome Frank Grillo, has just dropped a new 80’s retro looking international poster which looks similar to the first one but changes things up a little. It isn’t in English but who cares. Check it out below along with the older version.
Official Synopsis: Trapped in a time loop that constantly repeats the day of his murder, former special forces agent Roy Pulver (Frank Grillo) uncovers clues about a secret government project that could unlock the mystery behind his untimely death. In a race against the clock, Pulver must hunt down Colonel Ventor (Mel Gibson), the powerful head of the government program, while outrunning skilled ruthless assassins determined to keep him from the truth in order to break out of the loop, save his family and live once again for tomorrow.
Also starring are Naomi Watts, Michelle Yeoh, Annabelle Wallis, Ken Jeong and interestingly enough former New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski who I didn’t even know was acting so that should be a sight to behold for sure and probably not in a good way but you never know.
I also had the distinct honor in interviewing actor and filmmaker Eric Etebari who also stars in the film for his new film Emerald Run which he helped direct and we talked about this movie as well. He plays Roy #2 who is one of the elite Mercs out to kill Grillo’s character. Make sure to check out my exclusive interview with him when it hits next week as we delve into the film.
In the meantime, a trailer should be dropping soon and the movie is due to hit this summer on August 16th.
Carnahan and Grillo are also set so unite for the action film Zeno which was originally set to be a remake of The Raid but has since morphed into its own original film.
Keep it locked and loaded right here for more to come!
