Jason Statham & James Franco Face Off In Explosive 'Homefront' Trailer [Still + Trailer]
The new trailer for the upcoming action promises a film with the potential to be a huge success
Homefront is a tense action thriller that wants to poke holes in the typical story of a rural town's collective hostility towards a new family. Based on the Chuck Logan novel of the same name, the film will introduce Logan's much-used character Phil Broker (Jason Statham) to the big screen for the first time and judging by the trailer alone, we should be in for a wild ride when the film is released later this year.
Things start off blissfully for Broker and his daughter
Broker is an ex-DEA agent (not a former Minnesota cop, as he is in the book) who moves out to a rural town in the south of the United States to begin a new life with his daughter, Maddie (Izabela Vidovic), following the death of his wife. At first, things seem to be as idyllic as Broker would have hoped, with horses to ride, lakes to swim in and a large house to call their own, however things soon take a turn for the worse when Broker's daughter fights back against the school bully.
Things take a turn for the worse when these two get involved though
The mother of the bully (Kate Bosworth) wants revenge against the out-of-towners, and enlists the help of the local meth kingpin, Gator (James Franco), to give he the spooks and make sure that Broker knows that he's being toyed with, and will keep being toyed with. The thing about Broker though is that he knows how to take care of himself, a fact that only angers Gator and prompts him to wage war against the former lawman. Armed with guns, Gator breaks into his home with his thugs to kidnap Broker, who will stop at nothing to make sure that his little girl get home safely.
The two nemesis's, and Winona Ryder, stare each other down
Directed by Gary Fleder and adapted for the screen by none other than Sylvester Stallone, Homefront features an all-star cast that includes Winona Ryder, Rachelle Lefevre and Frank Grillo. It will arrive in cinemas on 29 November.
