‘Bloodshot’ Trailers: Vin Diesel is a Resurrected Soldier in Comic Book Movie

Sony Pictures

The first trailers have arrived for Bloodshot, the upcoming comic book adaptation starring Vin Diesel.

Based on the comic book of the same name by Valiant Comics, Bloodshot has Diesel playing Ray Garrison, a recently-deceased soldier  who is brought back to life using nanotechnology. Unfortunately for him, it appears that the corporation responsible for bringing him back and giving him incredible new abilities have agendas they’re not exactly being truthful about.

It looks slick enough, and there’s some welcome carnage being hinted enough among the familiar elements. It’s probably the right type of role for Diesel, who could have himself yet another franchise if things go well here.

This marks the feature directorial debut for Dave Wilson, who’s long worked in the video game industry helping craft cinematics for Blur Studio games such as Mass Effect 2, Halo Wars, BioShock Infinite, and The Elder Scrolls Online. The script comes from Eric Heisserer (Arrival, Lights Out) and Jeff Wadlow (Kick-Ass 2).

Check out the two trailers (one US and one international) below. Bloodshot, also starring Guy Pearce, Eiza Gonzalez, Sam Heughan, and Toby Kebbell, will arrive in Australia on February 20 and opens in the US on February 21, 2020.

Official synopsis for Bloodshot:

Based on the bestselling comic book, Vin Diesel stars as Ray Garrison, a soldier recently killed in action and brought back to life as the superhero Bloodshot by the RST corporation. With an army of nanotechnology in his veins, he’s an unstoppable force –stronger than ever and able to heal instantly. But in controlling his body, the company has sway over his mind and memories, too. Now, Ray doesn’t know what’s real and what’s not – but he’s on a mission to find out.
