Sony Pictures has released a brand new international trailer for their forthcoming action film adaptation of Bloodshot, based on Valiant Comics’ series of the same name. Moreover, the new trailer gives highlight to the technologically enhanced super soldiers created by Guy Pearce’s character Dr. Emil Harting. Check out the video in the player below!
Created by Kevin Van Hook, Don Perlin, and Bob Layton, Bloodshot tells the story of a former soldier, Ray Garrison, killed and brought back to life with technological upgrades thanks to Rising Spirit Technologies, filling his body with billions of nanobots. This allows him to be the perfect soldier by healing from injuries, shapeshifting and even interacting with technology. Ray, a.k.a. Bloodshot, suffers total memory loss and struggles to reconnect with who he was while learning what sort of weapon he has become, with the help of a group of other augmented combatants known as Chainsaw.
The star-studded cast includes Vin Diesel (Fast & Furious series, xXx series) in the title role, Toby Kebbell (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Sam Heughan (Outlander), Eiza Gonzalez (Baby Driver), Talulah Riley (Westworld), Johannes Haukur Johannesson (Game of Thrones), Lamorne Morris (New Girl, Game Night), Guy Pearce (Prometheus) and Alex Hernandez (Unreal).
Dave Wilson directs, having previously worked with Deadpool director Tim Miller at Blur Studios, directing cinematics for video games. (Among them Halo 2, Mass Effect 2 and BioShock Infinite.) Academy Award-nominated writer Eric Heisserer (Arrival, The Thing) scripted, who also wrote another of the Sony/Valiant features, Harbinger.
Diesel rejoins producer Neal Moritz, his collaborator on The Fast and the Furious franchise and the first xXx. Moritz’s other credits include 21 Jump Street and I Am Legend, plus another superhero film with The Green Hornet.
The film hits theaters on March 13, 2020.
