As so many of you are aware, the cinemas and small screens are filled with Marvel Studios features that bring the Marvel Universe to life while Warner Brothers gives us the DC Extended Universe of films and the “Arrowverse” in shows. Now it’s time to let Valiant Entertainment take a stab at it with their soon to be released “Bloodshot” film which is based on one of their most popular characters. We’ve featured the Official Trailer already and now its time to see the second trailer clip which is listed as the International Trailer. Let’s take a look down below and then please enjoy the premise, casting and poster art that was secured.
The Synopsis: After he and his wife are murdered, Marine Ray Garrison is resurrected by a secret team of scientists. Enhanced with nanotechnology, he becomes a superhuman, biotech killing machine – Bloodshot. As Ray first trains with fellow super-soldiers, he cannot recall anything from his former life. But when his memories flood back and he remembers the man that killed both him and his wife, he breaks out of the facility hellbent on revenge, only to discover that there’s more to the conspiracy than he originally thought.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve already mentioned my being an avid reader of the “Bloodshot” comic when it first hit the racks many years ago. It had this awesome embossed cover and like most collectors I made sure to secure a handful of copies for “posterity”. I’m not too up to date on the character or even Valiant Comics in general these days but when I check them out I like what I am reading. I’ve also mentioned that while this trailer looks exciting, I am not sure of how close to the original character premise they have remained or why his look is so dramatically different. We’ve learned that its not a wise practice to change characters too much from what an audience expects (ie Cobra Command from “GI JOE: Rise Of Cobra” and The Mandarin from “Iron Man 3”). That being said, I feel that I would still see this during one of the matinee showings at my local theater. What did you think? Chime in down below in the comments.
