[UPDATE] French Action Revisits Familiar Territory In The New Full Trailer For BRICK MANSIONS
UPDATE: You can now watch two trailers for the film, including an international version of the trailer at the very bottom.
Within hours of the exclusive ET debut of the first footage of Luc Besson protege Camille Delamarre‘s directorial debut, Brick Mansions, the new trailer arrived online which you can check out below. Fans may recognize several glimpses in the shots throughout the trailer as the film is modeled off of it’s initial incarnation, the 2004 French action hit, Banlieue 13, which fans may enjoy depending on how they see remakes as of late.

To accomplish his mission, he needs help from someone who knows well Brick Mansions: Lino, an expert at getting out of trouble with his extraordinary agility. Lino has had problems with the police in the past, but needs the mission to rescue his sister abducted by Tremaine. Will he accept joining forces with Damien?…Will they succeed in bringing down Tremaine?
