That’s right – the first official trailer for Parker starring Jason Statham has landed! Watch it right here!
Parker is a movie based around the character created by Donald E. Westlake (written under the pseudonym of Richard Stark) in his gripping cult classic crime novels of a master thief who goes by the name of Parker.
The first Parker novel was published in 1962 and was called The Hunter and the character progressed from their. In recent years, comic book artist Darwyn Cooke retold the stories in Graphic Novel format and were absolutely gorgeous.
The Parker character and novels have been the subject of a number of films over the years, however, this version is the first movie to ever have been granted the use of the characters name. For example, in the Mel Gibson move Payback, the character was simply called Poter. A number of other names were altered slightly in the movie too.
I’m a big fan of the original novels, the comic books and the other films made based on the character so I’m looking forward to this movie – even more so after this trailer! Check it out!
