Trailer Watch: Pacino and DeNiro in Righteous Kill

Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro share the same frames of a movie for the first second time in Jon Avnet’s Righteous Kill, a teaser for which has premiered at Yahoo! Movies. The storyline — about slightly bent (but not crooked) cops trying to catch someone who’s killing criminals who have slipped through the cracks of the legal system — is promising and the cast is solid (Brian Dennehy and Carla Gugino round out the cast), but Avnet’s mostly lackluster filmography (he’s done 88 Minutes, Up Close and Personal, Fried Green Tomatoes, and some other stuff I’ve never heard of) and the obnoxiously bad Rolling Stones remix throughout the trailer make me a bit nervous.

Righteous Kill takes aim at the box office on September 12, 2008.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t they share a scene in Heat? They talked to each other in a diner before…right?

    \this is coming from memory and is not Google or IMDB assisted.

    I stand corrected. I plead temporary insanity for forgetting about that scene…

    As long as you keep up with the blog and comic all is forgiven.
