Win tickets to see Red 2 early and for free
For a comical run-and-gun adaptation of a dark Warren Ellis comic book miniseries, Red was an unexpectedly massive success, immediately meriting a sequel. Even more impressive was the film one-upping the cast of Wanted with Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Richard Dreyfuss, Brian Cox, and others. The sequel, directed by Dean Parisot—Fun With Dick And Jane, but also Galaxy Quest—brings back Willis, Mirren, and Malkovich while adding Anthony Hopkins and David Thewlis, showing an uncanny ability to get award-winning actors to set off toilet explosions and drift in fast cars while shooting guns out of windows.

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, next-generation lethal device that can change the balance of world power. 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 technologically advanced super 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.
