    The transporter movies appeal was all about Statham kicking butt in his unique thuggish style. But I'll still watch what they do with this as I am simply a junkie for this kind of junk and they know there are a lot of suckers like me, hence them greenlighting this reboot :)

    What the hell is wrong with Ed Skrein's skull? :eek:

    That is some strange shape.

    I thought he'd retired and went behind the scenes! However, the reason I asked is because when he starred in Subway in the 80s, I'm sure he was credited as Christophe Lambert and I think it's the same but one is the French spelling, and he just added the 'r' to sound more Anglo Saxon. :)

    Looks like a rehash of the others and the lead guy looks like Luke Goss.

    I'd have been interested if they had gone for a new character, this is just a desperation ploy and it stinks.

    That trailer looks proper sucky!

    Only thing that looks good is the location, south of France.

    I was trying to think who this new guy reminded me of - Luke Goss with the voice of Paul Bettany. I've also been getting this guy mixed up with the new Hitman from the new movie of the same name!

    Actually, I was thinking that he looked rather like a stubbly Nicholas Hoult?

    I loved the original Trilogy and, for me, it worked perfectly well as is, didn't need "remaking" or "rebooting" and Jason was brilliant.

    Did they think that no one had heard of it or actually seen it? I mean, the trailer didn't look that different to any of the original films.

    Are they three new stories entirely or just the old stories rehashed?

    I thought Luke was pretty good in "Death Race 2 & 3" but, to me (and I'm showing my age here), he'll always be the pretty blonde drummer in Bros!

    And, coincidence of coincidences, guess who was the lead in "Death Race"? Yep, Jason "Hard Man" Statham!
