Lionsgate has launched the first official trailer for J. J. Perry's upcoming action comedy The Killer's Game, which is every bit as bloody as you'd expect as we see Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy; Dune; Blade Runner 2049) step into the shoes of an assassin who must survive the aftereffects of a hit he put out on himself.

As per the synopsis, "when top hitman Joe Flood (Dave Bautista) is diagnosed with a terminal illness, he decides to take matters into his own hands – by taking a hit out on himself. But when the very hitmen he hired also target his ex-girlfriend (Sofia Boutella) , he must fend off an army of assassin colleagues and win back the love of his life before it’s too late."

The film is based on Jay Bonansinga's 1997 novel of the same name and, based on the trailer, doesn't look like it'll be deviating too much from the source material, if at all. 

In addition to Bautista, the cast features Academy Award-winner Ben Kingsley ("Zvi"), Sofia Boutella ("Maize"), Terry Crews ("Lovedahl"), Pom Klementieff ("Marianna"), Scott Adkins ("Angus Mackenzie"), Drew McIntyre ("Rory Mackenzie"), Shaina West, Lucy Cork, Daniel Bernhardt ("Radovan"), Lee Hoon ("Goyang"), Marko Zaror ("Botas"), and Raffaello Degruttola ("Dr. Kagen").

Bautista is, of course, best known for his starring role as Drax the Destroyer in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, having played the part in six films and one Disney+ special - Guardians of the Galaxy, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2Avengers: Infinity WarAvengers: EndgameThor: Love and ThunderThe Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

The wrestler-turned-actor's more prominent credits also include, but are not limited to, Riddick, Spectre, Blade Runner 2049, Stuber, Dune, Glass Onion, Knock at the Cabin, and Dune: Part Two, which is currently the highest-grossing film of the year. Ahead of this new action comedy, he can be seen next in the spy comedy My Spy: The Eternal City, which is due out on Prime Video on July 18!

The Killer's Game hits theaters on September 13!

Sounds like a fun mid-budget action movie. Don't think I'll watch it in cinemas though

@bkmeijer1 - I dunno, it looks pretty entertaining. Better than Bautista other headlining offerings. But again, trailers tend to oversell rather than undersell.

Looks like one of those generic awful Netflix movies.

Looks like some fun mindless entertainment. Not sure the wife will want to see it in the theater, but will watch on streaming if not.

Bautista would make an awesome Mongul on War-World. just sayin' ....

@lazlodaytona - I want to see him as The Ventriloquist in Matt Reeves Batman universe. He would absolutely kill that roll. It would definitely test him as an actor to play a character like that.

@90caliber - that is a great idea!

@HAUSMAN01 - dude. He'd kill it in all of those roles! Good thinking....

As soon as the CGI blood splurts started flying, I checked out. I've yet to see a good movie that uses fake-o blood splurts...

@dinkdock1

Not many movies use actual squibs any more, which is a damn shame. Even the John Wick movies use CGI blood splatter. Sometimes it looks okay, others not so much.

Aside from a couple of moments of rough CG blood , it looks alright imo.

I like the cast and it’s nice to see Bautista as THE lead in a film like this so that’s cool.

Also i still need to check out his first film “Day Shift” but given that this is directed by JJ Perry who is a stuntman foremost , the action seems like it will be fun for the most part atleast!!.

?si=m3WcFLx9Op0GZANh

I’ll give it a watch at home!!.

@TheVisionary25 - I thought the rough cgi blood was intentional. To give it a cartoon'y feel
TheVisionary25
TheVisionary25 - 6/5/2024, 4:52 PM
@Vigor - i could see that

Does give it a bit of a B-movie flavor to it.

@TheVisionary25 - Day shift is a cool watch enjoyable stuff I mean you can’t say no to Jamie foxx and snoop dogg hunting vampires. Impressive cast also starring Scott Adkins and Dean Franco. Smart concept and a refreshing spin on the vampire horror genre. One of the better Netflix “movie of the week” films. You are in for a fun time.

@MyCoolYoung - it’s like a dumb version of John wick really still looks fun.

@TheMetaMan - I can get behind that comparison

Looks like a lot of fun. I'm always down for an action heavy bloody hitman movie. Feels like it'll be exactly what it's supposed to be; Quips, blood, assassination, and cheese.

Possibly a little too much makeup on Bautista though, he's looking a little too artifically young in this one lol.
TheVisionary25
TheVisionary25 - 6/5/2024, 5:22 PM
@RedFury - really?

I was surprised to see how old he looked lol
RedFury
RedFury - 6/5/2024, 5:30 PM
@TheVisionary25 - lol to me he looks like an old guy that's spent a lot of money trying to look like he's still in his early 40's.
TheVisionary25
TheVisionary25 - 6/5/2024, 5:32 PM
@RedFury - I guess I could see in the hair cut & such but maybe because I have seen him in his younger wrestling days , dude looks older especially around the eyes to me
RedFury
RedFury - 6/5/2024, 6:16 PM
@TheVisionary25 - very true, the eyes are often the giveaway.

I love dave man I grew up watching this man in the WWE as Batista but damn he’s had quite the work done on his face init. 😆
TheVisionary25
TheVisionary25 - 6/5/2024, 5:31 PM
@TheMetaMan - enjoyed him even though he was never one of my favorites

dude has one of the best WWE themes though imo

@TheVisionary25 - absolutely and I’m so happy he’s doing great in Hollywood. He’s clearly the best actor out of him Dwayne and Cena.
TheVisionary25
TheVisionary25 - 6/5/2024, 6:15 PM
@TheMetaMan - yeah , I would say so too though Cena really impressed me in Peacemaker
TheMetaMan
TheMetaMan - 6/5/2024, 6:38 PM
@TheVisionary25 - haven’t watched peacemaker series but he was good in suicide squad. Especially when he said that line to bloodsport - “dope asf.” 👌🏿
