District 13: Ultimatum – Trailer
Never seen District 13? Go watch it now, it was the fantastic debut by french director Pierre Morel and produced by Luc Besson who recently brought us last years sleeper hit, Taken. If you didn’t know District 13 is the film responsible for making free running popular in America and quickly became a cult hit when it was released in 2004. Starring a cast of unknowns the most famous person on the cast is David Belle who luckily is one of the founders of the Parkour that features so heavily in the movie making all the stunts look amazing.
Unfortunately the sequel is being directed by Patrick Alessandrin with Besson still on board as the films writer as producer but it looks like Alessandrin has managed to capture the look and feel of the first movie which shouldn’t give us too much to worry about.
Three years after the events of the original film, the authorities are attempting to return law and order to ravaged District 13. The death of gang overlord Taha Bemamud at the end of the previous film has left a power vacuum, and total control of the area is now being fought over by five rival territorial gang lords who want to step into Taha’s position of overlord over District 13. Damien and Leito return to District 13 on a mission to bring peace to the troubled sector before the secret services of Paris take drastic measures to solve the problem.
