Explosions! Tigers! Strippers! It's the Teaser Trailer for Diesel's "Babylon A.D."!
Aside from "The Pacifier," "Find Me Guilty," and a really goofy cameo in "Tokyo Drift," we haven't seen a whole lot from Vin Diesel lately -- especially in the action genre. Looks like all that's about to change with the arrival of Mathieu Kassovitz's "Babylon A.D." And if this behind-the-scenes teaser trailer is any indication, it's going to be a pretty chaotic affair.
Click here to see the teaser at Vin's official site, and then pop back here to let us know if the promo clip has you pumped to see "Babylon A.D." The IMDb describes the plot like this: "Veteran-turned-mercenary Thoorop (Diesel) takes the high-risk job of escorting a woman from Russia to China. Little does he know that she is host to an organism that a cult wants to harvest in order to produce a genetically modified Messiah."
So it's "Children of Men" meets "Cherry 2000." And I really ought to offer a bonus prize to anyone who actually remembers "Cherry 2000."
Scheduled for release next February, "Babylon" is the second English-language feature from the French filmmaker. His first was ... "Gothika." But "Gothika" didn't have tigers, strippers, fistfights, explosions, and Michelle Yeoh.
