Mad nuclear scientist Anthony Hopkins joins new Red 2 trailer

We thought Red 2, the movie based on Warren Ellis' original spy comic, was already over-stuffed with stars, but isn't there always room for Anthony Hopkins playing a mad scientist who assembled a secret nuclear bomb underneath Moscow was imprisoned for 30+ years? We say yes, and this new Red 2 trailer backs us up.


Now, assuming they do a Red 3, here's our pitch: Hopkins' character and Walter Bishop from Fringe take a road trip together. That's simply box office gold, my friends.



3 things.

1. AC/DC makes EVERYTHING better.

2. Anthony Hopkins playing a mad scientist equals instant MUST WATCH.

3. Helen Mirren putting that whippersnapper who's never heard of her in his place CAN BE WATCHED ON AN INFINITE LOOP AND WILL NEVER GET OLD.

That is all.
