Coming Soon - 13

Back in 2005 director Gela Bubluani brought a devastating vision to the screen in 13 Tzameti. It was an uncompromising movie and was truly shattering. Now there is the Americanized version, once again directed by Bubliani which stars Jason Statham, Ray Winstone and Mickey Rourke. It will be screening at Laemmie Monica 4-Plex in LA and the Village East Cinema in New York on October 28th with a DVD and Blu-ray release from Anchor Bay on November 8th.

Although I don't believe it will match the power of the 2005 movie I am eager to check it out due to Statham, Winstone and Bubluani's involvement. In fact the cast as a whole looks pretty solid to me. I do wonder why a director would remake his own movie though. It didn't really turn out all that well with The Vanishing. Time will tell, but in the meantime you can check out the trailer below.

Starring: Jason Statham, Sam Riley, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, Ray Winstone, Alexander Skarsgard, Mickey Rourke
Official Synopsis
Vince Ferro is a man in desperate circumstances. While on a quick fix-it job, he steals an envelope containing instructions for a mysterious job that promises a potential fortune. He assumes a false identity and follows the instructions, only to find himself a numbered participant in an underworld Russian roulette competition, where gamblers place bets on who'll survive when the trigger is pulled.  The stakes are high, but the payout is more than he can resist. Many are competing for the first time, and a precious few have even returned to play again, but are his odds any better than other players in this most deadly game? What will it take to be the last man standing?
