The Mechanic gets a trailer and cool poster

CBS Films, via MSN, has released the official trailer for Simon West’s new movie The Mechanic starring everybody’s favourite British hardman Jason Statham.

The movie, which is a remake of the 1972 Charles Bronson starrer, sees Statham as a hitman who takes on a new apprentice in the guise of Ben Foster. And lots and lots of shooting and shouting happens.

What makes this worth watching, aside from Statham, is West, who directed the great Con Air (as well as the now so great The General’s Daughter and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, but we’ll forget those as they didn’t have Nic Cage). Donald Sutherland and Mini Anden are also onboard for the destruction.

The film has no Irish release date yet but the US gets it January 28th. The new poster is pretty epic too.
