After a decade of waiting, we finally got to see the first ever official trailer for Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day last month. For fans, this was an epic and exciting moment to say the least, pushed further by the fact that nearly the entire cast – even secondary characters – return for the sequel (minus Willem Dafoe). Today, we have the second full trailer which was just released.
Starring in All Saints Day are none other than Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus as the infamous MacManus brothers alongside their father, played by Billy Connolly as “Il Duce” the legendary killer who lives by one rule – no women or children.
Also joining the roster this time around are Julie Benz as FBI agent Eunice Bloom in a role similar to that of Willem Dafoe’s character from the first film. Other major additions to the cast include Judd Nelson, Peter Fonda and Clifton Collins Jr. Clifton joins the brothers on their quest of vengeance against evil.
That’s not all though, if you’re Boondock Saints diehard, you’ll be happy to hear that the characters of Detective Duffy (David Ferry), Detective Dolly (Brian Mahoney) and Detective “get me my bagel” Greenly (Bob Marley) are also back for the sequel. Hell, even the Irish Gun Dealer is back for the sequel paying tribute to the details of the first flick.
No more delays, here’s the second full Boondock Saints 2 trailer:
If you saw the first trailer from last month, there really isn’t that much different. There a few action shots that are new but nothing significant in terms of plot or characters – it even plays the same song, “The Saints Are Coming” by The Skids, made popular again in 2006 from the famous U2/Green Day cover that they played live for the NFL’s New Orleans Saints return home after the events of Hurricane Katrina.
What do you think of trailer and are you psyched to see a Boondock Saints sequel after so many years?
The series finally gets a theatrical release with Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day opening in the U.S. October 30, 2009.
