New Trailer for Simon West’s Wild Card with Jason Statham, Set for Simultaneous Theatrical & VOD Release

Wild-Card-Banner-sliceLast week saw the return of Jason Statham to the kind of action-thriller territory for which he’s become synonymous, with the first international trailer for Wild Card.

Also known in some countries as Joker, the film reunites Statham with his The Mechanic and The Expandables 2 director, Simon West. And now Lionsgate has launched a brilliant first US trailer over on Apple, confirming that not only will the film be released in cinemas on January 30th next year, its VOD release date has been set for the same day too.

Nick Wild (Jason Statham) is a Las Vegas bodyguard with lethal professional skills and a personal gambling problem. When a friend is beaten by a sadistic thug, Nick strikes back, only to find out the thug is the son of a powerful mob boss. Suddenly Nick is plunged into the criminal underworld, chased by enforcers and wanted by the mob. Having raised the stakes, Nick has one last play to change his fortunes…and this time, it’s all or nothing.

From two-time Academy® Award-winning writer William Goldman (Best Original Screenplay, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, 1969; Best Adapted Screenplay, All the President’s Men, 1976).
