After spending the last few years in the supporting actor category Michael Caine is now the leading man and the trailer for his latest film Harry Brown proves he can still kick ass and take names. Check out the trailer for this action drama below.
The film is directed by newcomer Daniel Barber and also stars Emily Mortimer. Based on the trailer I have a feeling that this is going to be 2010’s Taken.
The plot is as follows: Described as a “modern urban western” the titular Harry Brown (Caine) is an elderly widower and ex-marine who has lived to see his neighbourhood overrun by violent gangs, drugs and crime. When his best friend Leonard (Bradley) is brutally murdered and the gang leader responsible walks free, Harry finds himself snapping. Soon, his desire for revenge leads to the unlikely vigilante facing up to the young thugs, with terrifying results.
Harry Brown is set for a UK release on November 13, 2009. A US release has yet to be announced.
