Mesrine: Killer Instinct charts the rise and fall of the often marvelled, yet utterly ruthless gangster Jacques Mesrine. The films follow the incredible series of hold ups, prison breaks, and kidnappings throughout the 60s and 70s. Almost 30 years since his spectacular death, shot down in a hail of police bullets, the Cesar Award-winning team of writer/director Jean-Francois Richet and Vincent Cassel bring to the big screen the story of the man behind the legend.
Mesrine: Killer Instinct introduces us to Jacques Mesrine (Vincent Cassel), a loyal son and dedicated soldier back home and living with his parents after serving in the Algerian War. Handsome and charming, he is soon seduced by the neon glamour of Sixties Paris and the easy money it presents. Mentored by Guido (Gerard Depardieu) Mesrine soon moves swiftly up the criminal ladder, choosing the high risk life of a gangster over the honest life of the hard working family. After pulling of an audacious heist he and his lover Jeanne (Cecile de France), flee to Canada where the opportunity of one big payout lures him out of hiding and propels him towards international notoriety.
Due out on 7th August 2009

Yep, Vin is back in Sci-Fi mode and above is the international poster for his new movie, Babylon A.D. The poster tells you absolutely nothing about the movie apart from the fact Vin and the French looking woman look like giants compared to the bit of cityscape behind them!
A veteran-turned-mercenary (Vin Diesel) agrees to escort a woman from Russia to
Germany, not realizing that she’s the host for an organism that a cult wants to
harvest into a genetically-modified Messiah. Based on the novel by Maurice G.
So no giants mentioned there. Damn misleading film posters and their false promises of giants. When was the last time we had a giant in a movie (apart from most Terry Gilliam movies – even when they don’t have a giant they always feel as if there is one just off camera). The plot sounds a bit like Children of Men with a bit of The Fifth Element thrown in.
Apart from Vin, the film stars Gerard Depardieu, Michelle Yeoh, Charlotte Rampling, Mark Strong, Radek Bruna, Melanie Thierry and Lambert Wilson. Some good actors and action stars in there so it may be worth watching.
Directed by Mathieu Kassovitz (who starred in Munich) for 20th Century Fox from a script by Eric Besnard.
