I was actually fortunate enough to see footage of The Doorman starring Ruby Rose and Jean Reno a while back and posted it but it was subsequently taken down as it was not an official release. I was pleased with what I saw however and Versus Director Ryuhei Kitamura is a definite draw for action aficionados. Check out Rose and Reno in action below!
Official Synopsis: In this punishing action-thriller starring Ruby Rose (JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2), a former Marine turned doorman at a luxury New York City high-rise must outsmart and battle a group of art thieves and their ruthless leader (Jean Reno, LÉON: THE PROFESSIONAL) — while struggling to protect her sister’s family. As the thieves become increasingly desperate and violent, the doorman calls upon her deadly fighting skills to end the showdown.
There has been a lot of criticism of Rose in the lead role but I don’t judge and I’m actually really looking forward to it and this new trailer further cements that.
Starring in the film along with Rose and Reno are Debt Collector’s Louis Mandylor as well as Rubert Evans, Aksel Hennie, Juilan Feder and martial artist and genre favorite Dan Southworth which I’m excited to see. Hopefully he will get to demonstrate some killer moves.
The Doorman will now see an official Blu-Ray/DVD and Digital release this October courtesy of Lionsgate.
