While I was watching this trailer for Luc Besson‘s upcoming Brick Mansions, I couldn’t help but think “haven’t I already seen all of this before”?
Then came that title card “Based on the screenplay Banlieue 13”. Yep, that was the movie that came to the US as either District 13 or District B13 depending on… well, I’m honestly not sure why it has the two titles.
Anyway, I guess if you’re going to steal, steal from the best, and there’s no denying Besson is one of the best at this kind of action movie, so why shouldn’t he steal from himself?
Oh, and by the way, yes, this is the last film the late Paul Walker completed before his untimely death.
