The Gunman International Trailer

By Dr. Know on January 20th, 2015

A new international trailer for The Gunman has launched today. Peep it below now!

Based on a Jean-Patrick Manchette novel and a script by Peter Travis, the story centers on an international operative named Martin Terrier (Sean Penn) who is betrayed by the organization he works for and must go on the run in a relentless game of cat-and-mouse across Europe.

That may sound like a generic spy story initially, but author Manchette was a leftist in terms of his political views, and his books have been described as “existentialist” and “involving explorations of politics as well as the human condition.” Maybe this is why Penn is attracted to the project.

I’m okay with existentialism as long as said exploration is being done with a lot of muzzle flares and explosions.

Idris Elba, Javier Bardem, and Ray Winstone co-star.

Action maestro Joel Silver (PredatorThe Matrix) is producing with Silver Pictures’ Andrew Rona.

Pierre Morel (Taken) directs.

The Gunman takes aim on the multiplex March 20, 2015.
