‘Brick Mansions’ (2014) Trailer 1

Release Date: April 25th

Directed by: Camille Delamarre

Written by: Luc Besson

Cast: Paul Walker, David Belle, RZA

Not sure that is a necessary remake for American audiences, but here we are anyway. Brick Mansions brings the all the action and free running and fights with gigantic dudes from 2004’s District B13, and even one of the actors. David Belle is reprising his role, but with a minor name change and little more girth. Hopefully a decade of living hasn’t muted his stunts. Also, this is Paul Walker’s final complete film. For those who aren’t familiar with the French version, here’s the synopsis: In a dystopian Detroit, abandoned brick mansions left from better times now house only the most dangerous criminals. Unable to control the crime, the  police constructed a colossal containment wall around this area to protect the rest of the city.  For undercover cop Damien Collier (Paul Walker) every day is a battle against corruption.  For Lino (David Belle), every day is a fight to live an honest life. Their paths never should have crossed, but when drug kingpin, Tremaine (RZA) kidnaps Lino’s girlfriend, Damien reluctantly accepts the help of the fearless ex-convict, and together they must stop a sinister plot to devastate the entire city. With stylized action featuring thrilling Parkour stunts (David Belle is the co-founder of this physical training discipline), Brick Mansions puts an entertaining twist on the action genre.
