'Killer Elite' trailer: Jason Statham, Clive Owen, and Robert De Niro fight

The trailer for Killer Elite starts with a beaten and bloodied Jason Statham tied to a chair. Clive Owen, sporting a grody ’70s stache, is holding a gun on him. Statham somehow manages to wrestle Owen while still tied to the chair – he even executes a wild seated backflip before he jumps out of a window. Then the punchline: Based on a True Story. Well, sort of; Killer Elite is based on a novel about British government hit men that is supposedly based on actual events (much like my upcoming memoir: How I Founded Google and Conquered Mars). Still, with Statham, Owen, Robert De Niro, and Chuck’s Yvonne Strahovski, Elite looks like it could be fun. Check out the trailer:
