New to trailers this week is 13, Géla Babluani‘s English remake of his very own cult hit 13 Tzameti. 13 stars an elaborate cast including Mickey Rourke, Sam Riley, Jason Statham, Ray Winstone , Michael Shannon and yes even Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson. the story follows Jack (Alexander Skarsgård) as he gets caught up in a gang out to make money through games of Russian roulette. The synopsis includes:
” A naive young man assumes a dead man’s identity and finds himself embroiled in an underground world of power, violence, and chance where men gamble behind closed doors on the lives of other men.”
Is this the most original movie out there? No. Does it look like these actors are giving it their all? Not really. Does it scream Oscar buzz for Fiddy? Absolutely not! But the last ten seconds of the trailer says it all. Give me a room full of guys ready for some roulette and I’m in. Are you? Check out the trailer below and find out. 13 still hasn’t been confirmed a release date, but is expected to premiere sometime around March 2011.
