First teaser trailer and poster for RED 2

Apple has released the first teaser trailer and poster for Galaxy Quest director Dean Parisot’s RED sequel RED 2.

The film picks up 6-9 months after the events of the first film, and involves the characters being linked to a mysterious thing called “Nightshade” posted on WikiLeaks that puts them and their loved ones in grave danger.

Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Mary-Louise Parker and John Malkovich return, with newcomers Catherine Zeta-Jones, Byung Hun Lee and Anthony Hopkins joining the retired and extremely dangerous hijinks.

Red 2 opens in Ireland on August 2.

In RED 2, the high-octane action-comedy sequel to the worldwide sleeper hit, retired black-ops CIA agent Frank Moses reunites his unlikely team of elite operatives for a global quest to track down a missing portable nuclear device. To succeed, they’ll need to survive an army of relentless assassins, ruthless terrorists and power-crazed government officials, all eager to get their hands on the next-generation weapon. The mission takes Frank and his motley crew to Paris, London and Moscow. Outgunned and outmanned, they have only their cunning wits, their old-school skills, and each other to rely on as they try to save the world-and stay alive in the process.
