While the final trailer for “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” will suck up all the oxygen online tomorrow, Sony Pictures is set to debut another preview as well which will turn some heads – the first trailer for the Vin Diesel-led Valiant Comics adaptation “Bloodshot”.
Today, the studio has teased that launch with a rather gory teaser which you can see below – one which shows off some of the character’s origin story. As ‘Skywalker’ doesn’t pump out its trailer until the evening, expect this one to go up fairly early on Monday.
In the film, Vin Diesel plays Ray Garrison, a marine who is murdered and 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. Dave Wilson helms from a script by Eric Heisserer and Jeff Wadlow.
“Bloodshot” is scheduled to open February 2020.
