Vin Diesel will return to the franchise that made him a star with the ninth Fast & Furious movie this summer, but ahead of that, we have Bloodshot. The movie is an adaptation of the comic book series and stars Vin Diesel as a former soldier who is brought back from the dead via advanced nanotechnology. The second trailer has now been released.
While October’s first trailer was slightly more story-focused, but this one is more interested in delivering gory hi-tech action. Diesel is one of several super-soldiers who are sent on missions to blow things up and kill people, with Guy Pearce (Iron Man 3) plays the shady doctor in control of his life. It’s got a distinctive comic book vibe to it and looks very over-the-top and violent. Check the trailer out below.
Bloodshot also stars Eiza Gonzalez (Baby Driver), Sam Heughan (Outlander), Lamorne Morris (New Girl), Toby Kebbell (Kong: Skull Island), and Talulah Riley (Westworld). It’s directed by Dave Wilson, who worked on the acclaimed Netflix animated anthology Love Death + Robots, and releases on February 21, 2020.
Bloodshot was created by Kevin Van Hook, Don Perlin, and Bob Layton and first appeared in 1992. He was one of the main characters for Valiant comics, which was set up in 1989 by former Marvel editor Jim Shooter. The Bloodshot film is part of a five-movie deal with Sony to bring various Valiant characters to the screen.
As for the Fast & Furious 9, the first trailer is set to be released at the end of January–we’ll presumably find out the movie’s title then too. For more, check out GameSpot’s guide to everything we know so far about Fast 9.
