Last week we were treated to a red band trailer for Dwayne Johnson’s upcoming feature Faster, which showed the former pro-wrestler in fine ass-kicking form.

Today we get a more muted version of the same which shows more of the story. Johnson plays a former prisoner who is trying to avenge the killing of his brother. This puts him straight up against a cop played by Billy Bob Thornton, a hitman played by Oliver Jackson-Cohen and a mysterious woman, played by Maggie Grace.

The script comes from Joe and Tony Gayton, who wrote Bulletproof and is director by Notorious helmer George Tillman Jr. Add in Carla Gugino, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Moon Bloodgood, and Tom Berenger to the cast and this is looker better already.

Hopefully the movie will live up to the increasing hype when it is released in Ireland February 4th.

Synopsis.

After 10 years in prison, Driver (Dwayne Johnson) has a singular focus – to avenge the murder of his brother during the botched robbery that led to his imprisonment. Now a free man with a deadly to-do list in hand, he’s finally on his mission…but with two men on his trail – veteran cop (Billy Bob Thornton) just days from retirement, and a young egocentric hitman (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) with a flair for the art of killing and a newfound worthy opponent. The hunter is also the hunted. It’s a do or die race to the list’s finish as the mystery surrounding his brother’s murder deepens, and new details emerge along the way hinting that Driver’s list may be incomplete.
