Today, we have the trailer for Michael Caine’s new movie, “Harry Brown.”
The movie, also starring Emily Mortimer, premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival this week.
Its plot is as follows: Harry Brown (Caine) is an elderly widower and ex-marine who has lived to see his neighbourhood overrun by violent gangs, drugs and crime. When his best friend Leonard is brutally murdered and the gang leader responsible walks free, Harry finds himself snapping. Soon, his desire for revenge leads to the unlikely vigilante facing up to the young thugs, with terrifying results.
Directed by Daniel Barber, the movie is due in theaters in the U.K. on Nov. 13. We will update you when a U.S. date is available.

For some reason, I see him only as Alfred now …
Somehow I always see Michael Caine as the character he played in “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” with Steve Martin or the character he played in “Deathtrap” with Christopher Reeve.
Michael Caine has long been one of my favorite actors. It seems he can play just about any part with great skill, the mark of a truly gifted actor.
I actually have never heard of this movie. Sounds promising.
Looks pretty sweet!
