This week’s release of Bloodshot will most assuredly bring criticism as fans are already crying foul for the film’s PG-13 rating and I can’t help but think that the film is already damned even before it’s released.
Anyway, I’m still excited for it and the trailers have looked pretty killer and now we have a new clip courtesy of PlayStation where co-star Guy Pierce gives Vin Diesel the 411 on his new transformation. Take a peek below along with a new poster!
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.
