After debuting a character posters for six principle cast members, "Red 2" has united its killer ensemble. The new poster lines up Anthony Hopkins, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Mary-Louise Parker, Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren and Byung Hun Lee in a similarly crimson-soaked image.
Check out the full poster below.

These "Red 2" character posters are rolling out two-by-two; we've already shown off the Bruce Willis and John Malkovitch posters, followed by the Helen Mirren and Catherine Zeta-Jones posters. Now two more members of "Red 2's" star-studded cast get posterized: Anthony Hopkins and Byung Hun Lee.
The full posters can be seen below, and as you will obviously note, they mix the mundane with hints of each character's more... lethal activities just like the previous posters. Well, at least Anthony Hopkins' poster does. Lee's poster just screams "hitman," or at least "hitman in a hotel."
Check out both posters below.
Following the release of Bruce Willis and John Malkovich's "Red 2" character posters, it shouldn't come as a surprise to see these two new posters for Helen Mirren and Catherine Zeta-Jones pop up today. Unlike their male counterparts, these two actresses are seen lounging and looking glamorous while surrounded by guns and, in Mirren's case, dead bodies.
If we read too much into these posters, it seems like Frank Moses and Marvin Boggs have been enjoying the simpler life while Victoria and Miranda Wood have continued to live more exotic lifestyles. It will be interesting to see how they all team up after their time apart since the end of "Red," since we know "Red 2" is set in a variety of international locales. Check out both posters below.
We're only days away from the release of the new trailer for "Red 2," and some new posters for the upcoming movie have been released in anticipation of that big event. Two posters featuring John Malkovich's Marvin Boggs and Bruce Willis' Frank Moses have made their way online that show the characters engaging in day-to-day activities while still looking like total badasses.
Frank walks through a supermarket holding a handgun and a basket of groceries, while Marvin walks through a field of sheep with an RPG in his backpack. This tongue-in-cheek style of marketing is exactly what we were hoping for in this new movie, and it looks like director Dean Parisot has provided. Check out both posters below.
Lorenzo di Bonaventura is giving "Red 2" his stamp of approval. In a new interview, the producer promised plenty of comedy in the upcoming "Red" sequel.
"It’s really fun, it’s really good. I think the best measure of it is that all the cast members that we added -- Byung Hun, Catherine Zeta Jones, Anthony Hopkins, David Thewlis -- we added some really great actors and they really killed it. So I think we made, I say 'a richer broth,'" di Bonaventura told Collider. "And [director] Dean [Parisot] has a great sense of comedy and there’s just some laugh-out-loud funny stuff in it."
The retired and extremely dangerous operatives of "Red 2" have a new date of attack: July 19.
Summit has shifted the follow-up to the 2010 action-comedy to the height of the summer movie season, away from its original slot on August 2. That puts Bruce Willis, John Malkovich and pals in direct competition with "R.I.P.D.," which, ironically enough, comes from original "Red" helmer Robert Schwentke.
How about a little teaser trailer for "Red 2" to jump start the day? Lionsgate has delivered a neatly-packaged, minute-and-a-half teaser that sets up this action-packed and star-studded sequel to be a perfect compliment to the first film.
We open with a shot of a wobbly shopping cart rolling down the aisle of a Costco-like store. Its contents include a mish-mash of home and self improvement items like vitamins, speakers and the denture product Polident and it is being pushed by retired assassin Frank Moses (Bruce Willis), whose run-of-the-mill shopping trip is interrupted by his old buddy Marvin Boggs (John Malkovich) who laments the fact that Frank hasn't been working.
The main characters in "Red 2" might have some major violations with the fashion police, but at least they're back and fighting fit. The first image from the upcoming movie has been released, and it shows Bruce Willis, John Malkovich and Mary-Louise Parker walking away from a dangerous situation. Their outfits are nothing to write home about, but their nonchalant attitude certainly is.
''All of those great Bond and Bourne movies you've seen, we go into that world and have those kind of set pieces. It's just our characters that are completely ludicrous,'' director Dean Parisot told Entertainment Weekly.
With his days as a werewolf behind him, actor David Thewlis is turning to another animal for his next big-budget performance.
The Hollywood Reporter has the news that Thewlis, who starred in the "Harry Potter" series as Professor Remus Lupin, is joining the cast of "Red 2" as an information dealer known as The Frog. How did he earn that name, you ask? THR reports that he "got his name by poisoning the water supply at the Kremlin using a poisonous Amazonian frog." Neat!
Catherine Zeta-Jones dances into theaters next week in the Tom Cruise-starring movie musical "Rock of Ages," but once she exits stage left she'll find herself surrounded by retired and extremely dangerous assassins.
Summit Entertainment announced last month that the Welsh actress would join the cast of "Red 2," the sequel to the 2010 action flick starring Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren and John Malkovich. And now Zeta-Jones' role is no longer top secret.
"I play a Russian double agent in 'Red 2,'" she revealed to MTV News. "I'm very excited to work with such a great ensemble cast like in 'Rock of Ages.' What a cast for me to join. I'm really excited, and the script is so much fun."
