Jackie Chan and Johnny Knoxville are the stars of new action comedy, Skiptrace. Chan plays a detective from Hong Kong, Knoxville is an American gambler and together they must team up against a Chines criminal. Sounds familiar…?
The main reason I probably want to watch this is because it’s reminiscent of the Rush Hour trilogy. Surely that’s as good a reason as any. Also, Rush Hour 2is after all my favourite Jackie Chan film. May this new Renny Harlin directed production please be worthy.
It just occurred to me that Jonny Knoxville kind of looks like a young Jack Nicholson.
I saw the names Kevin Spacey and Michael Shannon which led me to immediately watching the new trailer for the Liza Johnson directed comedy, Elvis & Nixon…
In terms of the casting, at first I thought, ‘What? Michael Shannon? As Elvis?’ But then I finished watching the trailer…
Shannon certainly doesn’t bear much of a facial resemblance to Elvis Presley but it does look like he’s succeeded in all the other key areas. I say this having not heard him sing. In fact, I’m not even sure that he’ll sing at all in the film. I’ll be watching for the comedy and the two lead actors.
Evan Peters, Colin Hanks and Alex Pettyfer also star.
