Dame Helen Mirren (The Queen) reprises her role as a retired, extremely dangerous (RED) agent in Red 2, the sequel to Red. It is a bit of fun to check out Mirren kicking bum and taking names in this action-comedy flick starring opposite Bruce Willis (Die Hard), John Malkovich (Being John Malkovich) and Mary-Louise Parker (Weeds), Byung Hun Lee (G.I. Joe) and fellow Brits Anthony Hopkins (Hitchcock), David Thewlis (Harry Potter) and Catherine Zeta-Jones (Chicago). Mirren is keen on playing a baddie, telling the National Post, “I love being a badass. It’s just the best. To lurch from being a queen to a badass is really cool.”
Mirren recently talked to ComingSoon.net about being a part of an ensemble cast:
The movie hits U.S. theaters on July 19.
You have one day to see Red before the sequel is out!
