Watch Paul Walker, David Belle and RZA in the Explosive First Trailer for BRICK MANSIONS

A few days ago I posted a preview image of Paul Walker and RZA from the new film, BRICK MANSIONS. And today, as we finally get a full look at the trailer (featured above), we can see just how wild the action is. It opens with a drop kick and never slows down (there's actually quite a bit of martial arts influence shown here). But does anyone else get a Fast & Furious vibe from it? Seeing Walker, as an undercover cop, chasing down bad guys in a car certainly brings back fond memories. Regardless of whether or not the film is good, I'm sure folks will come out in droves to watch this swan song performance from Walker. 

Here's the synopsis again:

In a dystopian Detroit, abandoned brick mansions left from better times now house only the most dangerous criminals. Unable to control the crime, the police constructed a colossal containment wall around this area to protect the rest of the city. For undercover cop Damien Collier (Paul Walker) every day is a battle against corruption. For Lino (David Belle), every day is a fight to live an honest life. Their paths never should have crossed, but when drug kingpin, Tremaine (RZA) kidnaps Lino’s girlfriend, Damien reluctantly accepts the help of the fearless ex-convict, and together they must stop a sinister plot to devastate the entire city. With stylized action featuring thrilling Parkour stunts (David Belle is the co-founder of this physical training discipline), Brick Mansions puts an entertaining twist on the action genre.

For those of you asking (because I was wondering the same thing) who David Belle is, I've learned he's a French actor mostly known for similar crime/action films abroad and last fall's The Family with Robert De Niro (which was co-written and directed by Luc Besson, who also co-wrote the French film District B13 off which BRICK MANSIONS is based).

Yesterday I previewed the first poster from the film on Twitter. In case you missed it, here it is:

BRICK MANSIONS opens in theaters nationwide on April 25th.
