There's A TRANSPORTER 3 Teaser Online!!

Merrick here...
Allocine has posted the French teaser for TRANSPORTER 3.


For higher quality, note the teeny little "HD" link at the bottom left hand corner of the embedded video. TRANSPORTER 3 is directed Oliver Megaton (newly returned from his unceremonious banishment to the Laurentian Abyss), and is written by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen (who wrote the first two installments, as well as THE FIFTH ELEMENT).

    on a serious note

    by birdy birdman

    was that really supposed to be the character from the transporter delivering the briefcase to Vincent at the beginning of Collateral?

    Jason Statham...

    by mefrog

    ...always seems to have some kind of ticking bomb attatched to his body. That said, this trailer gave me a fucking headache. Too many quick cuts.

  • June 10, 2008, 9:09 a.m. CST

    why I do believe

    by Jarek

    Having TBag in it will make the flick a little better. However, it looks like they took the ticking time bomb plot of Crank and added it to this franchise. Lightning doesn't strike twice, I don't think.

  • June 10, 2008, 9:10 a.m. CST

    Michael Bay has achieved greatness

    by michael bay sucks awesome

    When it comes to movies. In terms of directing he demands greatness.

    As much as sequels suck these days, I'm actually really looking forward to this one...

  • June 10, 2008, 9:13 a.m. CST

    Let's hope

    by The Harp

    ... they took all the cool from the first two movies, jettisoned the cheese, and made a decent flick. If not, I hope it's closer to the original in tone than to Transporter 2.

    by tomdolan04

    Good film, enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. One of those cheap bargin supermarket DVD's you pick up on the off chance. Likewise the Trasnporter 2 in its own silly way. <p> In terms of cinematic value I'd rather have The Transporter 3 than a remake of My Fair Lady or whatever the remake story of the hour is. Hell in terms of naff action frolics I saw Speed 2 only recently and in terms of laughing my ass off at naffness, I enjoyed the truly bat-shit insane retardness of it. <p> Jason Statham should appear in the adaptation of Gone...

  • June 10, 2008, 9:22 a.m. CST

    Luc Besson needs to get off his French ass.


    He needs to stop doing everything else but direct films. The Transporter concept is a good one, but the execution has sucked balls so far. Luc Besson should direct the film instead. I didn't even know they were making a third one.

  • June 10, 2008, 9:27 a.m. CST


    by WickedJester

    Because it made money... Honestly, there's not too many action vehicles (no pun intended) that are worth it anymore. I'll take this over Mission Impossible IV...

  • June 10, 2008, 9:28 a.m. CST

    Cool, I'm down for that

    by Abominable Snowcone

    the other two were fun, and didn't pretend to be anything cerebral. Just fun, fast eyecandy. But everyone should go watch "The Protector" first

  • June 10, 2008, 9:33 a.m. CST

    More shirtless Jason Statham!

    by Itto Ogami loses Daigoro

    So you could see the man is in shape! I guess him doing this movie isn't going to be any worse than headlining another Uwe Boll feature no?

  • June 10, 2008, 9:38 a.m. CST

    Never liked the Transporter series, but...

    by DerLanghaarige are two things I like about the teaser:<p> 1.) 'I Wanna Be Your Dog' playing in the background. (Not the most used trailer song ever.)<br> 2.) They even put Robert Kneppers name in the teaser, just like anybody who doesn't watch Prison Break would know who he is.

  • June 10, 2008, 9:40 a.m. CST

    I wish my name was Oliver Megaton.

    by Knuckleduster

    Transporter 3? Oh, why the hell not...

  • June 10, 2008, 9:49 a.m. CST

    I wish my name was just Megaton!

    No need for Oliver if your last name is Megaton.<br> KNEEL BEFORE MEGATON!

    Yeah, a teaser for Crank 2!!!!

    by Marsellus

    Oops. Mistake.

  • June 10, 2008, 10:11 a.m. CST

    Looks awesome

    by O_Goncho

    Glad to see they're moving the film back to France where hopefully there'll be less emphasis on cheesy American melodrama and lingering flag shots and more emphasis on the Stath slotting women, looking cool, and killing people in all manner of twisty, hose-chucking ways.

  • June 10, 2008, 10:16 a.m. CST

    I can see why people hate these films

    by O_Goncho

    But I don't; the world needs stupid action films that actually deliver on the stupid action front, and Jason Statham is the master of that particular art. Also, Chev Chelios is nothing like Frank Martin.

    T-Bag and Megatron

    by photoboy

    This film cannot fail it's so full of win!<br><br> I really liked the first film, but the second had too much silly CGI. From the teaser this looks like it should be more of a return to the first film's style. I hope it's set in Europe again, the US setting didn't help to distinguish the second film either.

  • June 10, 2008, 10:36 a.m. CST

    Just what we need - more of this FUCKING SHIT.

    by Steve Rogers

    Seriously, stop making these shitty movies. They are terrible. Transporter 2 was utterly awful. Leterrier needs to do a lot with Hulk to redeeem himself in my eyes.

    Cinema Verite

    by Aquatarkusman

    I want a low-key Transporter, like he's transporting somebody's Thai food from a restaurant to a brownstone, then he finds out it's a fake address and spends the rest of the film eating, smoking out, and shitting.

    Jason Statham is the caucasian Jackie Chan

    by Bill Clay

    I don't know if we need a Wonder Bread version of Jackie, but Statham fits the niche capably.

    I like part 2 way better than 1

    by Vern

    The first one had Statham and some cool fight gimmicks, but it took the plot too seriously for such corny bullshit. Always talking about his "rules" and shit. Part 2 knew exactly what to do, it shitcanned a half hour of seriousness, leaving a lean 87 minutes of ridicuawesome. I must've rewound the bomb/car/crane bit 4 or 5 times. And a guy uses a skeleton as a weapon. And that chick with the raccoon eyes has a bunch of spikes on the wall in her apartment for some reason. Good shit.<p> But wasn't he supposed to be gay in part 2? This one looks like he might be straight again, so it might be more like part 1.

  • June 10, 2008, 12:37 p.m. CST

    Ahh I'm sold, I'm afraid

    by palimpsest

    I loves me some Statham. Vern will write a book one day. You watch my words: STATHAMOLOGY: HOW ONE SCRAWNY LIMEY KICKED ALL KINDS OF UNHOLY ASS. Even if his Merkin accent stinks.

  • June 10, 2008, 12:38 p.m. CST

    Transporter movies go ok with a beer or two

    by L. Ron Bumquist

    but they ain't no Crank.

  • June 10, 2008, 2:51 p.m. CST

    Oh yes.

    by DocPazuzu

    The Transporter films are great. They're crap, but FANTASTIC crap. Whereas Shoot 'Em Up was smug and pretending to be retarded, thus being condescending to the viewer, the Transporter films are full-on, 100%, Grade-A retarded and make no apologies for it. There isn't one single wink to the audience which makes the ludicrous action even more glorious. I'll watch Statham in anything, but the way he plays the Transporter, completely straight-faced, is what makes him so compelling amid all the cacophonous, asskicking lunacy. <p> Transporter 3? I'm so there.

    If Jason Statham

    by palimpsest

    his in a lead-lined fridge to protect himself from an atomic test blast that he had blundered into only to be rocketed across the countryside to land next to a CGI gopher, I'd respect his stubbly intensity and buy it completely. Of course, he'd take his shirt off and beat the gopher to death with a bicycle chain, but that's Statham for you.

    The best thing about Transporter flicks...

    by DocPazuzu that because of their retardedness, they can make an endless amount of them. There are no childhoods to be raped and they are impervious to rational critique. All they need is a scowling Statham in a suit (or bare-chested) engaging in ridiculous car chases and beating the shit out of armies of goons with unlikely implements. <p> Gold!

    by AdmiralNeck

    Why put the bomb on his wrist when it could quite happily be shoved into his ribcage?<p> The thing I like most about The Transporter movies is that the main character has the best kind of OCD possible, not the life-crippling kind that afflicted Jack Nicholson in As Good As It Gets. Here, Frank's OCD makes him the most hardcore badass motherfucker in all of Europe. What a berserk gimmick for an action hero.

    ...Arthur and the parasites and Angel A, I think its best that Besson never direct again. Just keep pumping out the modern day Cannon quality cheese. I love em. Even his Liam Neeson one looks awesome. Mindless violent fun. His crews do good work. From the french language schlock of B13 to english language schlock like Danny The Dog. Compared to the Paul W.S. Andersons, Xavier Gens or Timur Bekmambetov's of the world the dudes are cinematic gods.

    Someone just nailed Shoot Em Up...

    by Tourist

    ...Imagine going to a party watching someone with Down Syndrome dance to Huey Lewis and the news. Thats Crank, The Transporter, Statham Vehicles in general. Now imagine watching a grown man from an affluent background get drunk and pretend to be a person with Down Syndrome dancing to Huey Lewis and the news at a party. Thats Shoot Em Up.

  • June 10, 2008, 5:29 p.m. CST

    NOOOOOO!!!!! The first...Spoilers

    by Roketopunch

    was OK. I was entertained but oh god, the 2nd Transporter was like watching a Shaq movie. One thing still plagues me. At the end of Trans2 did he climb aboard a plane after driving through a billboard. I had to stop the movie after we see him on the plane. I rewatched numerous times the billboard crash to the point where he's on the plane. There is no explanation. Has got to be one of the most Fk'ing retarded things I've seen.

    FUCKING A, where the A stands for AWESOME

    by Harry Weinstein

    More TRANSPORTER is always welcome. Count me in with the TRANSPORTER 2 fans - absolute mid-90s Hong Kong-style madness with enough brazen homoeroticism to call back to the American action cinema of the 80s. The original tried too hard to be a real movie. TRANSPORTER 2 is too busy murdering REALITY ITSELF to concern itself with such things. And now part 3, directed by a man named Oliver Megaton. With a name like Oliver Megaton, you better bring the fucking action.

  • June 10, 2008, 8:52 p.m. CST

    re Cyril Raffaelli

    by DocPazuzu

    Man, the prolonged casino fight in B13 is one of the geatest cinematic beatdowns I've ever seen. Just when you think Raffaelli has exhausted every conceivable way to fuck someone up -- BAM! -- another hilarious and brutal bitchsmack.

  • June 10, 2008, 9:28 p.m. CST

    I'll watch this

    by proper

    My favourite bit in Transporter 2 is when the mans head is stuck in the porthole of the boat and the transporter kicks him in the groin,the reaction was priceless,I had to rewind that at least 3 times,tremendous,that should be his special move in any future films..

  • June 10, 2008, 9:57 p.m. CST

    Part 2 has the better fight scenes

    by O_Goncho

    ...but it built them around a cheesy, melodramatic Man on Fire farce so woefully bad that to me I still prefer the stripped down coolness of the first film. So if I just want to watch the fight scenes again via Youtube then it's the second and no contest but if it came down to watching one of them all the way through again I'll take the first without question; so THERE, Mr. Vern.

    I'm with Vern and the good Dr Pazuzu on this one. I love this series, and I thought the second one was far, far better than the original. It was bigger, stupider, and much more fun, so I can only hope they pull off the same trick again and make part three a colossal explosion (a Megaton explosion!) of Dumbhouse joy.

    I Liked The Official Teaser Better Than The Official Trailer

    by Red Dawn Don

    Whichever one that was LESS split-second over-edited. The teaser was more story oriented. If that is possible for a TRANSPORTER movie. I liked the first (Trans-1) best. Didn't they show JS defecting a missle with a kitchen pan in the trailer for Trans-2. That scene while in the trailer was not used in the movie. Something about not being believeable.
