Overture Films have just delivered the red band trailer to their latest crime drama that pairs up Robert De Niro and Al Pacino for the first time, "Righteous Kill". Through it viewers can see the dynamic between the two Academy Award-winners as well as the acting of 50 Cent. Though it is not a bloodbath kind of trailer, the more than three minutes video footage is still filled with crude language and violence.
Taking one last case before they hang up their badges and enjoy their retirement days, NYPD detectives David Fisk and Thomas Cowan are faced with a murder of a notorious pimp. When they find the lifeless body of a suspected criminal with a four line poem, they realize that it can be linked to a case they had solved years ago. But, with this new murder crime, they question whether they put the wrong person behind bars while the real killer is still out there looking for a new target.
Following the story of two veteran New York City police detectives on the pursuit to uncover a serial killer, "Kill" is a psychological thriller written by "Inside Man" scribe Russell Gewirtz and helmed by "88 Minutes" filmmaker Jon Avnet. It will be released in theaters on September 12.
