Just when I thought the highlight of my morning was going to be finding a box of old-but-still-good noodles in the fridge for breakfast, along comes the trailer for Red, a movie that just jumped to the top of my Fall must-see list. The setup: A bunch of retired CIA agents get back into the game. Why? I don’t know. And I can’t say I care all too much, as long as those agents are played by a cast this amazing: Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman, Mary Louise Parker, and John Malkovich. Check it out below, along with our picks for the three aweseome-est moments.
And now for those moments:
1. A camouflaged, crazy-eyed John Malkovich launched 20 feet through the air by a human catapult while holding a crossbow. John, I’ve really, really missed you.
2. Morgan Freeman, dressed in a Sgt. Pepper-style military jacket, giving a mean right hook to Richard Dreyfuss. Looking for a Mr. Holland’s Opus connection here; not finding it; still loving it.
3. Helen Mirren pistol-whipping some dude in a suit. I know this is kind of like the first example, but come on. Dame Helen Mirren. Pistol whipping. How could I resist?
Anything I missed, PopWatchers?
