Vin Diesel is under the knife in the opening scene for the latest “Bloodshot” international trailer released Tuesday, as a team of scientists work to bring him back from the dead.
“You’ve been improved and advanced – welcome to the circus,” he is told. “The technology in your veins will make you faster, stronger and heal you instantly.”
The latest teaser for Columbia Pictures’ comic book adaptation gives us a better look at the people controlling Ray Garrison’s (Diesel) mind and manipulating him to act as a super soldier killing machine. “You are my weapon,” villain Dr. Emil Harting, played by Australian actor Guy Pearce, informs.
What Dr. Harting and his evil team didn’t prepare for was Barton’s memories seeping back as he sees flashes of his wife and the man who killed her.
“You’ve made me, but you can’t control me forever,” he warns his creator, as bloody mayhem ensures.
The action movie, based on the Valiant Comics character of the same name, also stars Eiza Gonzalez, Sam Heughan and Toby Kebbell.
David S. F. Wilson makes his directorial debut after working on the cinematics for video games like “Bioshock Infinite,” “Mass Effect 2” and the “Star Wars: The Old Republic” franchise. He’s working from a script by Jeff Wadlow (“Truth or Dare”) and Eric Heisserer (“Arrival”).
From Columbia Pictures in association with Bona Film Group and Cross Creek Pictures, “Bloodshot” hits theaters on March 13, 2020.

We were paying attention. These are the non-superhero comic book films that moved us and thrilled us this decade.
