Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.16.10] movie trailer news action thriller

Charles Bronson fans will know the 1972 film, The Mechanic, as a classic of 70s cinema - a slow burning hitman thriller that's also a meditation on a what it means to live a life with purpose.

Well the world has seen fit to give us a remake with Jason Statham and Ben Foster and the first official trailer has hit the webs (a promo appeared a while back). I like both these actors so I expect this to be a pretty decent watch.

Arthur Bishop (Jason Statham) is a 'mechanic' - an elite assassin with a strict code and unique talent for cleanly eliminating targets. It's a job that requires professional perfection and total detachment, and Bishop is the best in the business. But when his mentor and close friend Harry (Donald Sutherland) is murdered, Bishop is anything but detached. His next assignment is self-imposed - he wants those responsible dead. His mission grows complicated when Harry's son Steve (Ben Foster) approaches him with the same vengeful goal and a determination to learn Bishop's trade. Bishop has always acted alone but he can't turn his back on Harry's son. A methodical hit man takes an impulsive student deep into his world and a deadly partnership is born. But while in pursuit of their ultimate mark, deceptions threaten to surface and those hired to fix problems become problems themselves.

Check out the trailer after the break.
