The first trailer for RED 2 has been released – scroll down and click ‘play’ to watch it.

In the two-minute teaser, Bruce Willis‘s retired CIA agent finds out he is Number One on Interpol’s Most Wanted list – and Helen Mirren‘s silver-haired sniper has been hired to kill him.

Alongside Willis and Mirren, John Malkovich and Mary-Louise Parker also return from 2010’s RED, which stands for “Retired and Extremely Dangerous”. The golden oldies action-comedy was a surprise hit at the box office, grossing a shade under $200m (£125m) worldwide.

Meanwhile, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Anthony Hopkins have joined the cast for the sequel, which was directed by Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest, Fun With Dick And Jane). The film’s script was written by John and Erich Hoeber, who also penned the original.

RED 2 opens in UK cinemas on August 2 this year. Before then, Willis will be seen in A Good Day To Die Hard, due on February 14, and GI Joe: Retaliation, which is scheduled for March 29.
