‘Repo Men’ Green Band Trailer

Repo Men 570x377 Repo Men Green Band Trailer

Just a couple of days before Christmas last year (it’s weird we can say “last year” about 2009, isn’t it?) a new red band trailer for the sci-fi/action-thriller Repo Men appeared online. The film hadn’t really appeared on our radar until that point but from some of the bloody and intense action sequences, along with a cool storyline and a great cast, the film is now one I’m keeping an eye out for.

In an odd reversal of the usual order, the red band trailer dropped weeks before the green band, but we now have the latter for you to enjoy. Naturally it takes out most of the explicit stuff from the red band, and by that I’m particularly referring to the amount of blood shown on-screen. In that way this trailer hides the film’s true identity, even though it’s understandable why they need to make a “safe” trailer like this for general audiences.

Just as a reminder, Repo Men is about two futuristic agents who repossess the cybernetic organs of people who can’t afford to pay their bills to an… unfriendly organization known as The Union. Of course, movies like this need that twist thrown in there and in this case, the character played by Jude Law gets into an accident that leads to him needing one of The Union’s high-tech hearts. Ironically for him, he can’t afford the bill, so the company he once worked for comes after him, including his partner and lifelong friend (Forest Whitaker). It’s based on the novel The Repossession Mambo by Eric Garcia.

Here’s the official trailer for Repo Men below, courtesy of Trailer Addict (special thanks to Latino Review for pointing us to it):

Many people have pointed out that this film looks a little too similar to the horror-fantasy musical Repo! The Genetic Opera, and our own Kofi Outlaw even described it as, “a mashup of the classic Repo Man and Minority Report,” which seems like an apt description simple smile Repo Men Green Band Trailer .

Nevertheless, the visuals look slick and polished, the pairing of Jude Law and Forest Whitaker is odd but interesting, and – as evidenced by the previous red band trailer – the shackles are loose in terms of what they can show on-screen (even if this green band trailer does a great job of hiding that fact). I’ll certainly be checking this out.

Thoughts on the official green band trailer for Repo Men? Did you prefer the red band trailer because of all the extra stuff you got to see?

Repo Men will be released in theaters on April 2nd this year.

  1. I like the Green Band trailer because I want to be suprise at the diffent thing going on in the movie,than on the trailer.

    Still I am looking foward to seeing the movie. it looks interesting and it has Jude Law so I’m there !

  2. After seeing Sherlock Holmes I have a new respect for Jude Law, while he is a nice guy, I never found any of his acting terribly engaging before but Holmes changed my mind.

    This could be good.

  3. I liked the red band trailer more, but either way, I’m excited to see this movie. It could be because I’m riding the Jude Law high of “Sherlock Holmes” (I did like him in other things though DrSamBeckett :) ).

    A good, decent action movie with a convienent emotional twist? What’s not to like?

  4. I’m happy Jude Law is back and bad-ass.

    He was great in Sherlock as Jessie points out and he’s got some meanness and fight in him here.

    I’d like to see him as an action star :)

  5. Jude Law is very scrappy looking in the preview. His body type reminds me of Edward Norton from “Fight Club.” You don’t think he can take a hit but he kicks ass (in the case of Norton in “Fight Club” his own ass). Very slight and thin and therefore a pleasant surprise in the action department.

  6. I actually wasn’t going to see it until I saw this trailer (I missed the red band). It looks great – and I adore Liev Schreiber, he’s one of my favorite actors. I’d actually prefer to see him in Jude Law’s role, but it looks like it will be fun.

  7. Looks awesome.
