This first trailer for Homefront, adapted from a Chuck Logan novel with a screenplay written by Sylvester Stallone, is everything great about movies. It’s about an ex-DEA agent, played by Jason Statham, who travels to a backwaterburg in Nowhere, USA and whose daughter beats up the son of some crazed druggie (Kate Bosworth!) who then sicks her boss on them to teach them a lesson. Oh, did I mention that boss was named Gator and played by James Franco (mixing what I’ll assume to be Alien from Spring Breakers and Will Ferrell’s pimp character from The Other Guys)? Homefront is going to be terrible, but so great because it’s made for America and people like me.
And just look at the poster in the gallery. An American flag draped over Jason Statham’s denim jacket? If that’s not Patriotism in a nutshell, I don’t want to live on this planet anymore.[via Yahoo]
