Is parkour staging a comeback? Between that kid making his way to the top of 1 World Trade Center undetected over the weekend, and now “Brick Mansions,” perhaps we’re going to see more extreme urban movement out there. Either way, that hot trend of 2004 is now back ten years later, with the late Paul Walker getting into action mode.
A new trailer for the movie has dropped and yes, this is a Luc Besson production. Co-starring RZA and David Belle (of “District B13” fame, which this movie is a remake of), this one is set in a dystopian Detroit, where the abandoned brick mansions (title of the movie!) now house dangerous criminals. But cop and convict must team up when a bad guy puts into motion a plot that could bring down the entire city. Parkour! Frankly, this is either up your (backflipping) alley or not.
“Brick Mansions” arrives on April 25th. Watch below.
