Deadpool critically was an success, now we have a sequel in the works and Ryan Reynolds now firmly back in frame of blockbuster films. In Criminal Reynolds takes a back seat as Kevin Costner (Draft Day, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit) takes lead role, check out new poster.
Criminal follows a CIA operative (Reynolds), whose memories and skills are implanted into an unpredictable and dangerous death-row inmate (Costner) in a last-ditch effort to stop an international terrorist plot.
It’s a right man in a wrong body, this is essentially Costner’s gig with Reynolds appearing in flashback scenes. As for the poster, it’s stylish but as we don’t know too much about the reasons behind the body swap as well as the terrorists motives. The threat of nuclear attack part of the premise is very relevant to the political instability of the world today. Check out the trailer below…
Lionsgate are releasing Criminal in UK&Ireland on 15th April, co-starring Gal Gadot, Tommy Lee Jones, Alice Eve and Tommy Lee Jones.
