The wait is almost over! The District B13 remake, Brick Mansions is expected to be released April 25 of this year. For those of you who don't know of the original French movie, here's a little synopsis from comingsoon.net:
In a dystopian Detroit, abandoned brick mansions left from better times now house only the most dangerous criminals. Unable to control the crime, the police constructed a colossal containment wall around this area to protect the rest of the city. For undercover cop Damien Collier (Paul Walker) every day is a battle against corruption. For Lino (David Belle), every day is a fight to live an honest life. Their paths never should have crossed, but when drug kingpin, Tremaine (RZA) kidnaps Lino's girlfriend, Damien reluctantly accepts the help of the fearless ex-convict, and together they must stop a sinister plot to devastate the entire city. With stylized action featuring thrilling parkour stunts (David Belle is the co-founder of this physical training discipline), "Brick Mansions" puts an entertaining twist on the action genre.
Understandably, some B13 fans are worried that their French original will be butchered. Despite this, there is definitely some excitement in the air to see if this remake will deliver. We'll just have to wait until April to know for sure but until then, check out this trailer!
