Trailer for BOONDOCK SAINTS II now online

The first trailer for The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day, sequel to the first film that debuted exactly a decade ago, has made its way online. Troy Duffy, writer/director of the original, returns with stars Norman Reedus, Sean Patrick Flannery, Julie Benz (Angel, Punisher: War Zone) and Clifton Collins, Jr (Star Trek).

Willem Dafoe's presence is already missed in the trailer, and Flannery looks... odd. To say the least. His face looks really puffy. Anyway, the trailer looks good. It took me a few times watching it before I got genuinely excited.

I saw the trailer a few days ago and I'm psyched. I'm sorry about the lack of Willem Dafoe, but hopefully he won't be blatantly missed in the film. Especially with his protégé seemingly doing the same stuff he did.

Flannery does look a bit old, which is surprising because he looked fine on The Dead Zone and that wasn't too long ago.

Reedus looks tired, but then again he always looks tired. And it's weird about Flannery because I remember seeing him on The Dead Zone as well and he looked normal. It's not even that he looks old it's as if he's aged substantially in the last couple years.

Re: Trailer for BOONDOCK SAINTS II now online

I finally saw the original a few months ago and didn't think it was anything to shout about. After seeing the poster in just about every college dorm room I've had the chance to visit, I was surprised to go online afterwards and find out that the film was a box office flop and totally eviscerated by the critics.

This looks to be about the same. Which is good for fans of the first one, but I'll pass.

Re: Trailer for BOONDOCK SAINTS II now online

Check out the documentary "Overnight", about "the rise and stumble of Troy Duffy, the bartender-cum-filmmaker who was swept up by Miramax's Harvey Weinstein to turn his script for The Boondock Saints" (to quote IMDB).
The "filmmaker" comes across as a bully who will coerce his friends into fighting then laugh about it (literally). When he's on the phone to Weinstein, he says something like "yeah we're a pool of creativity here, we're a cesspool of creativity here...". This 'writer' needs a dictionary apparently.

Can't be sure without the intonation, but just written down that sounds like a pretty good self-deprecating joke.

Looks like my memory is faulty. I was sure that he said it in a phonecall with Weinstein, but Ebert has this in his review:

"One of the subtexts of the movie involves how people look at Troy Duffy. He is very full of himself. At one point he actually says that Harvey Weinstein would like to be him. He keeps all of the money, tells the guys in the band they will get paid later, later tells them they don't deserve a dime, and still later tells them, "You do deserve it, but you're not gonna get it." He is deeply satisfied with himself: "We got a deep cesspool of creativity here," he says, and boasts "this is the first time in history they've signed a band sight unseen."

It's a good documentary at any rate.

It is, and it's really a far better movie than The Boondock Saints could ever hope to be. Boondock Saints is little more than a bunch of ultra-stylistic action pieces strung together by a bullshit plot.

Essentially, it's a Quentin Tarantino movie without Tarantino's talent.

Excellent. Loved the first film when I saw it back in 2002 and had actually given up on a sequel ever being done. Pity about Dafoe not coming back but looking forward to it.

So watching Boondock Saints and Smokin' Aces back to back would cause some serious brain trauma?
