The first trailer for Wild Card is here and the latest Jason Statham action flick looks like it’s a little different that his usual films. This time out, he’s actually the underdog as a down on his luck gambler in Sin City who one way or another, as he says in the trailer below, “This is my last night in Las Vegas.”
Statham is Nick Wild, a Vegas bodyguard who is a lot more lethal with his hands, feet and assorted weapons than he is with his Blackjack skills.
When a buddy gets roughed up by some thug, Nick swings into action and gets revenge.
Wrong move… that guy was the son of the city’s biggest mob boss. Yup, trouble is brewing. Nick would like to get out of town, but he’s got no cash. Time to hit the tables and hope he doesn’t get what’s coming to him before he has a chance to win it all.
Wild Card lands in theaters January 30 and also stars Sofia Vergara, Jason Alexander, Anne Heche, Max Casella, Hope Davis, Stanley Tucci and Milo Ventimiglia.
What is so compelling about this flick is it is written by a screenwriting legend, William Goldman (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, All the President’s Men).
