red 2 poster 2013

Summit Entertainment has unveiled, via Yahoo! Movies, this new “The Best Never Rest” poster for ’RED 2.’ Arriving in cinemas from August 2nd, the sequel stars Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker, Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Byung Hun Lee, Brian Cox, and Neal McDonough.

Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest) is taking over directional duties on ‘RED 2,′ from a screenplay by Erich and Jon Hoeber – who wrote the script for the first installment, based in turn on a comic book by Warren Ellis and Cully Hammer. Robert Schwentke, the helmer of ‘RED,’ is hard at work finishing his Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges-starring comic adaptation ‘R.I.P.D.,’ which is also released this summer. The official synopsis for ‘RED 2′ can be found below.

In RED 2, the high-octane action-comedy sequel to the worldwide sleeper hit, retired black-ops CIA agent Frank Moses reunites his unlikely team of elite operatives for a global quest to track down a missing portable nuclear device. To succeed, they’ll need to survive an army of relentless assassins, ruthless terrorists and power-crazed government officials, all eager to get their hands on the next-generation weapon. The mission takes Frank and his motley crew to Paris, London and Moscow. Outgunned and outmanned, they have only their cunning wits, their old-school skills, and each other to rely on as they try to save the world—and stay alive in the process.
