CRANK 2: HIGH VOLTAGE Teaser Is Fast, Cheap And Out Of Control!!!

Beaks here...

It's also going to re-size your browser and blister your grandmother's eardrums, so, for god's sake, don't play this thing in mixed company.

Click here for the hand-held, digitally shot mayhem.

And do it soon, because I don't know if this is an official leak. Actually, I'm pretty sure this is the footage procured by IESB.net's Robert Sanchez for this year's "Masters of the Web" panel at Comic Con. I think I like the no-frills look of the thing. I know I don't like the stale CHAPPELLE'S SHOW reference. Either way, it's wonderfully excessive. And it's still set for release on April 19, 2009. Bring it! And Mike Patton's scoring this fucker!?!? 2009 is already laying the lumber to 2008!

    by BYOBkenobi

    Is Statham still in this shit? That fucking guy keeps getting work and I get laid off for the rest of the week in a trade much more valuable than that motherfuckin peice of shits efforts on screen.

    this was shot on Canon's XH-A1. A camera that cost 3 grand!

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    Fuck yeah!! That bloated turd Watchmen will never hit theaters, and this low budget fuck-fest will be raking in mounds of cash.

  • Dec. 30, 2008, 11:21 p.m. CST

    They seriously shot on that Canon POS?

    by Jarek

    They could have got a far more filmic look in the same price-range shooting with an HVX200 in 1080p mode. I'm sure they had the budget for that.... I'm not digging the look of the film. Looks like fun, but the cheapness really knocks it down a few notches. The first one was shot on HD I believe, and looked infinitely better. This teaser is probably before colour timing and post processing, so the end product will probably be better..... but still, disappointing. Really disappointing.

    by mrbeaks

    Move CRANK 2 to March 6, 2009 *now*.

  • Dec. 30, 2008, 11:32 p.m. CST

    I'm pretty sure they weren't going for the "filmic" look

    by kikuchiyoboy

    Cause you can get it from the Canon too. But I concur that the HVX is an awesome camera. I wonder why they chose that option?

  • Dec. 30, 2008, 11:33 p.m. CST

    Patton is extra badassness

    by the milf lover

    they could also just play Midlife Crisis and, even more appropriately, Surprise! You're Dead!

  • Dec. 30, 2008, 11:49 p.m. CST

    obviously that didn't get a shit about the film look....

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    ....they just went with a compact cheap ass camera they can beat the shit out of. I like how the film look is becoming less and less of a concern. <P> And agreed, Panasonic cameras dominate.

  • Dec. 31, 2008, 12:04 a.m. CST

    The Depth of field also adds to the kinetic tone.

    by kikuchiyoboy

    MIKE PATTON GOTTA EAT!

    by MaxCalifornia.

    Now I'm truly torn...one of my favourite and most creative musicians of all time is scoring the sequel to a movie that was complete garbage.

  • Dec. 31, 2008, 12:27 a.m. CST

    hrrrm

    by macheesmo3

    I never understood the Mike Patton love, he's generally been the worst part of everything he's been a part of ( from Faith No More to Tomahawk) He can't sing , his lyrics are trite , juvenile single entendre... i just don't get it ! This look like more cornball fun that will go good with bean dip I think. I guess they will say he survived because he was so juiced out of his mind when he hit the ground? Not that logic matters in something like this.

  • Dec. 31, 2008, 12:41 a.m. CST

    More offensive than Shoot Em' Up?

    by Larry of Arabia

    I loved every stupid, implausible, idiotic and immoral moment of that terrible, terrible movie. And it was a terrible movie. I'll check this one out too in hopes that it's just as terrible.

  • Dec. 31, 2008, 12:54 a.m. CST

    Crank 1 was a hell of a lot better than Shoot em' up.

    by GQtaste

    It was different and went for it like no film has in quite some time. Those dudes said, fuck it, lets roll the dice and go balls to the wall w/ the pedal. Plus, Amy Smart is one fine piece of ass!

  • Dec. 31, 2008, 12:59 a.m. CST

    Whenever I see Jason Statham

    by sean bean

    I do Mark Kermode's impression in my head. Funny how he's the guy to have made it big from the Guy Ritchie set. Everyone thought Vinnie Jones was going to be the star at the time. Not only that, but Statham was banging Kelly Brook during her prime years. You have to respect that.

  • Dec. 31, 2008, 4:26 a.m. CST

    "You have to respect that."

    by IAmMrMonkey!

    You certainly fucking do! Lol.<p>Why do I continue to both watch and enjoy Jason Stratham movies? I'm sure it must be a character flaw that I need to sort out. I even enjoyed "Death Race". My brain was screaming 'This is shit! It doesn't even make sense! What are you doing watching this?' whilst my eyes were screaming 'Jason Stratham in a big car blowing things up! Yaaaaay!'

  • Dec. 31, 2008, 4:55 a.m. CST

    Statham continues to defy the laws of taste

    by palimpsest

    This is not necessarily a bad thing. Every day he wakes up, bangs a hot chick, compares said bang of said hot chick to the first time Kelly Brook sat on his face and wiggled like a spastic cobra, then he goes to work. Work, for Mr Statham largely consisting of swearing, roundhousing badasses, firing large guns, topless karate, movie-fucking starlets, diving in slow-motion from ridiculous explosions, and then going back to his trailer to take calls from Luc Besson, Sly Stallone, and that needy Bitch brook who keeps asking to come back to the Stathiverse. All while thumbing through his annotated and signed copy of SEAGALOGY by Vern. Frankly, long may Mr Statham continue to get away with it.

    by godoffireinhell

    ...because, seriously, a gun discharged in a man's bowels should be SPECTACULAR. I find the scene in BAISE-MOI (and a similar scene in that BIBLE BLACK hentai anime porn) pretty goddamn anticlimaxtic.

    yeah i'm a movie fan, and while i can exjy an oscer worthy film, i also look forward to just plain cheap entertainment..this looks like statham will make up for the less then steller transporter 3 (please if you make a T4, make it more like the second one and don't try to add a plot to a film that doesn't require one)

    Can "Lock, Stock & 3 Smoking Barrels" be too far behind? Statham and Vinnie Jones are a "gotcha asses planted" dynamic duo if ever there was one. Please, Guy... you have all that unfulfilled promise, absent for so long. Please do for gunfights & badass mayhem what Malick once did for nature shot-ridden, poorly-narrated tone poem pseudo art films. We shall all be the more fortunate.

  • Dec. 31, 2008, 9:42 a.m. CST

    I think that broke my brain.

    by Xandar1977

    As shitty and silly as the first one was, you kinda got the feeling that somewhere deep down inside the director's black and poisoned heart that he believed he was making some shred of a serious action movie. It looks like that has gone completely out the window. Bring it on bitches. I'm marking it on my calendar.

  • Dec. 31, 2008, 9:44 a.m. CST

    I don't know man

    by Vern

    It seems like there could be some option other than "Oscar bait snoozefest" and incompetent horseshit made by moronic giggling fratboy pricks. The first one had such potential and some good ideas here and there but I had a big problem with the idiotic approach to filming and editing and for this one clearly they tried to take it to the next level of senseless unwatchability.<p> Don't get me wrong, I like the stupid premise and I think some day Jason Statham will be in a good movie. But I think it would be possible to make a movie like this and actually include something that passes for well crafted action sequences, etc. So fuck anybody (Danny Dickblood I'm looking at you) who thinks just making a movie that's not pretentious counts as doing a good job. I think the "choke a bitch" line combined with the shot of the directors saying "OOOOOOOOOHHHH THAT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!" pretty much says everything you need to know about these geniuses.

  • Dec. 31, 2008, 9:50 a.m. CST

    I don't like all shit movies. I'm actually very particular with the shit I consume. I never acted like anything not pretentious and Oscar-Baiting is automatically good shit. But I will say I'm 98.9423424% sure that anything involving action with Jason Statham is automatically some pretty tasty shit no matter how outlandish. And the insane video look really has me jazzed for some reason. Its no more of a cheap gimmick than Snyder's "Everything meaningful happens slowly" bullshit.

  • Dec. 31, 2008, noon CST

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    I do agree with the "Choke a bitch" line. That was the dumbest shit I've ever heard. I can't fucking stand dumb fucks dropping quotes from that show and thinking it automatically makes it work just well as the original usage. <p>But I liked the directors cheering. It sorta reminded me of that Indiana Jones Last Crusade teaser with Harrison stapling the hat on his head and Spielberg clapping and saying that take was great! Awwwww those were the days. Before the mention of Indiana Jones made me feel uncomfortable.

    That was a great trailer you gave me VHS flashback syndrome. Friday The 13th Part VIII Jason Takes Manhattan one of the other greatest trailers ever made

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    so no one goes to the movies to have fun?

    by Quartermass-87

    ain't life all about fun? Geez in the world we live something dumb, silly and fun is what we need to takeour minds off all the bullshit. People on here gotta chill and relax and be able to pull stick (or shotgun) outta ass and just enjoy some fun....a movie can be cheap and dum and still fun...ya can't always get the classy whore sometime you gotta settle for the 10 dollar BJ cause a BJ is fun no matter what.

    but I say again

    by Vern

    that just because it's cheap and dumb doesn't mean it's automatically fun. You gotta earn it. To me, some assholes with implied backwards hats and soul patches pushing all the buttons on their editing equipment while Jason Statham rapes his girlfriend in front of a crowd is not necessarily fun. Don't pull that "you don't want to have fun" shit on me, some of my favorite movies include Blade, Stone Cold and Action Jackson. I wrote a whole book about the films of Steven Seagal. I even like Transporter 2. (Although the other two not so much.)<p> What I am proposing is that even the lowbrow arts can be held to standards of quality and non-shittiness. A movie like this could be done with skill and intelligence and still be "dumb." Or if not it should be more accidentally shitty like Dolemite. To claim that just ANY movie like this must be enjoyed is to insult the genre and all those who died for it. Or, you know, worked hard for it or whatever.<p> I think most of us agree on that though since some people have drawn the line at Shoot 'em Up and since a bunch of you gave me shit for liking Transporter 2.<p> anyway happy new year

    Cheap indeed!

    by joergn

    Come on, if that wasn´t called "CRANK 2" nobody would give a shit about that flic. It looks painfully awful and everyone cursing the whole hole "shakycam-style" will surely throw up watching that crap.
