The long-awaited red-band trailer for Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day has finally premiered, and IGN was kind enough to share their exclusive with the rest of us!

For all you Boondock Saints fans out there, I know we recently promised you that the trailer was going to arrive over a month ago, but hey, we too are slave to Hollywood’s wicked trickery (saints preserve us) icon wink Boondock Saints 2 Trailer (Red Band) is Finally Here! .

However the trailer is here now, so enough talk – let’s give you what you came for, the red-band trailer for Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day!

I’m going to be honest: I came late to the party back when Boondock Saints starting to become the cult-phenomenon it is today. The original film was released in 1999, I think I saw it in 2002 and immediately my reaction was “This is what all the fuss has been about?” At first I thought it was an Irish-themed Tarantino knock-off, with one HELL of a weird performance from Willem DaFoe as a quasi-gay, self-hating police detective???

My brother (and pretty much everybody else I know) swears by Boondock Saints though, and I’ve pretty much been written off by friends and family as a fool for not liking it.

About this sequel: the trailer makes the film look like a much more polished version of Troy Duffy’s (director of Boondock Saints) vision. The returning stars (Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus) look like they haven’t lost a step (or the chemistry) after nearly a decade; the new additions to the cast (Clifton Collins Jr., Judd Nelson, Peter Fonda, Billy Connolly and Julie Benz) look like good ones; and I am so SO happy that DaFoe’s character won’t be back. I love DaFoe, but that character pretty much murdered the first film for me.

For you Boondock Saints fanatics out there: I expect some of you will like the money-polished version of one of your cult favorites, while others of you will inevitably say that Duffy and Co. “Sold out.” We’ll see who feels which way in the comments.

Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day hits theaters on October 30, 2009.

  1. I personally dislike Tarantino movies, I’m not excited for the sequel to this movie, never understood what the big deal was about Boondock Saints… It wasn’t horrible, but it wasn’t good either… It was mildly entertaining in my opinion. Tarantino films are a combination of boring and ridiculous. Don’t know how he does it, but neither of those things are positive so…

  2. I would like to correct something. Billy Connolly was in the first movie as Il Duce, or ‘dad-saint’. He’s not talking on a new role but reprising an old role.

  3. I liked the movie, but some don’t, and I’m not going to try to convince anyone to like or dislike it, but as for me, I AM STOKED FOR THIS MOVIE!

  4. Honestly I have to admit from what I am getting from the trailer there is its not really going on the same boat of the first one with the very serious religious overtone to the movie and seemed to show more funny portions then anything. I loved the first movie and watch it like its going out of style, but from what I have seen so far from the trailer this sequal isnt really appealing to me just yet. So here’s hoping a better and more serious story trailer comes out so it doesnt look like this is just some clown version sequal of such an epic movie.

  5. I cant wait much longer to see this movie…I have been waiting ever since I saw the first.
    i think it is pretty funny how many people there are on here saying they didnt like the first one and how they cant see what the fuss is all about …yet 10 yrs later they are here…commenting on the sequel. Must’ve been good enough to want to see what the sequel had to offer.
    = )

  6. OMG! I love this movie and everything it stands for. I like that it is not typically hollywood. I hope the next one sticks to this. Actually whatever, I will love it anyway. Just thinking now I will have to wait forever as I am not sure when it will get to show in South Africa. I hope soon.

  7. I think the serious overtone is still there. The mob has the priest wacked to send the brothers a message, and they are gonna ‘send a message right back.’ Pretty serious to me. And, while Dafoe’s protege is a stretch, the name “Unis” just makes me think Dafoe’s character got a sex change. I am so pumped for this movie…

  8. Can’t wait! If it’s only 1/2 as good as the orignal that will still be 100% better than the a lot of the crap films hollywood is putting in our faces today.

    For those of you who did not like this film thats fine, we all have our opinions. I hope they do leave the spitirual aspect in, hollywood has a way of cutting everything religous out of films, odly though most of the nation is still spiritual.

    Every now and then you want to see a film that is not ment to be take seriously and have a blast. Thats wht the BDS is all about. (at the same time I wish they were real, we could use them in every major city.)

    Go saints go!

  9. I heard it was finally going to happen, so I had to check around the web. I might be the happiest person in the Midwest United States. Loved the first movie and have been waiting to long for this. Thought it would never happen. I will first in line!

  10. um i noticed sumthing in the trailer. didnt flanery have BLUE eyes? and yet he has brown eyes in the second? can sum1 please tell me if im wrong and explain this cuz im freakin out

  11. Alex

    he was in a bad car accident and had to have major surgery on his neck and face. that could be why but i’m not sure.

  12. whoa i had no idea! wen did tht happen??? and thanx 4 letting me know. im glad hes ok

  13. His eyes look blue to me. What kind of surgery would change that?

  14. Who really gives a crap, as long as they have the same witty banter back and forth that’s all the movie really has going for it…

  15. Yea, I was a little late to the party as well but always loved the movie. Definitely looking forward to the sequel. Looks like a lot more money was put into it. BTW, according to wikipedia, The Rocko scenes are flashback scenes. He did die in the first one. Also, Willem Defoe opted out citing he was moving in a different direction. Definitely looking forward to it though.

  16. Another interesting fact about the first one. It was very briefly released in theaters. It was pulled right after columbine because people freaked out. I think that has more to do with its cult following. Still a great movie though.

  17. Definitely more Hollywood than the first one, but still looks like it will be good.
    I think a lot of people that didn’t like the first movie just didn’t get it. Boondock Saints though it had some crazy action, was mostly story driven, and had a serious sociological point.
    If watching the first movie didn’t make you think, you missed the point.

    The major difference between this film and a Q-Tarantino film is, this movie was smart not particularly shocking. Q-T movies are shocking and not terribly smart, he uses violence to create an effect instead of the other way around.

  18. I dont see how you can say they sold out, the budget for the first movie came out at around $6mm and the new one was still below $10MM (i believe 8). I think the technology is just much better since it has been crazy long since the first one.

    Stoked for the movie and glad they finally worked out all the legal issues to get this movie made

  19. Billy Connolly was the father in the first one, too, brotha.

  20. Did anybody else see Rocco From the first movie walking by in this trailer!?!?!!?

  21. Billy C. was a small but important role in the original film and Defoe ( in my opinion ) was at least 30% of the first movie . If you didn’t like his character you didn’t get the movie ! Sad he won’t be back but still gonna see it .I agree with Hunter about the difference from QT films and must say I much prefer the clever approach over the club .

  22. Oh, and this may sound really,really weird and creep coming from a 12 year old but i think you guys a really cute.

  23. Troy Duffy is a jerk. When he wrote the origional he sold it to a major production company, and was helping to direct the movie. He was so difficult that the studio went back and declined to produce it and black balled Duffy in Hollywood. They attempted to stop him from ever making the movie. He went on to produce it as an independent flick and eventually succeeded, following and preceding its release a number of suspected attempts on Duffy’s life were made forcing Duffy to go into quasi-exile. Ten years later he’s back and probably still a jerk but I guess he kissed and made up with Hollywood. I am stoked for this film but I bet it has lost some of its independent grittiness and I am not expecting to be talking about this sequel ten years from now as I am talking about the origional.
