Trailer Tuesday: Righteous Kill

This week's trailer highlight is Righteous Kill starring Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino as two veteran New York City cops. The two friends starred in 1974's The Godfather Part II for Francis Coppola but shared no onscreen time since DeNiro played the young Vito Corleone in flashbacks, and Pacino played his grown son Michael. The two did share screen time in Michael Mann's Heat (1995) but their onscreen interaction was limited to one scene. Now along comes Russell Gewirtz (writer of Inside Man ) to hopefully satisfy our curiosity about what these two acting powerhouses could do together with more shared time onscreen. Gewirtz wrote  Righteous Kill with De Niro and Pacino in mind and on screen together for nearly the entire film. Let's see if they can generate even more heat this time around.

I am always hopeful about these two actors and to have them together again does make me eager for this film to open. Thanks M!
