Late Paul Walker Appears In New Trailer For 'Brick Mansions'
The remake of District 13 was Walker's last completed movie before his death in November...
The new trailer for Brick Mansions offers a first look at the last film Fast & Furious star Paul Walker completed before his death last November, and it looks to be the kind of action movie that the late actor was best known for.
A remake of the French thriller, District 13, the flick follows Damien (Walker), a cop that gets the job done no matter what. Damien is given the task of bringing down a crime lord (RZA) who has taken the city hostage with a neutron bomb, but he is going to need the help of an ex-con to save the day.
Did we mention that the ex-con is really good at Parkour? Because that's probably the most important part of the trailer. David Belle, literally the founder of Parkour, stars as Lino, the man who will eventually help Damien to infiltrate the fenced-off, crime-ridden community of Brick Mansions.
All the action you see at the beginning is coming from the guy who invented that kind of thing.
Between the Parkour and the moments of racing in the trailer, Brick Mansions looks like a kinetic action movie that separates itself from the pack in the terms of the kind of thrills it provides.
The movie was the last one Walker completed before his death last year. He had been on a break from filming the seventh Fast & Furious movie at the time of accident, and many of his scenes were left incomplete.
That film is being restructured around Walker's death, so Brick Mansions is the last movie of his career that was completely unaffected.
Brick Mansions hits cinemas on April 25.
