Red 2 brings back Bruce Willis as Retired Extremely Dangerous black-ops CIA agent Frank Moses leading an ensemble which includes Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker.

While original cast member Morgan Freeman does not return to the sequel, we are fortunate enough to have Anthony Hopkins join the ensemble as well as action hero Lee Byung-hun (Storm Shadow in the G.I. Joefranchise).

The sequel is another non-stop action comedy with incredible performances which reassembles the team having to span the globe to stop a long-forgotten Cold War nuclear threat called Project Nightshade.
