Footage Released Of One Of Bruce Willis’s Final Films Before ‘Stepping Away’ From Acting
And, lucky for us, right before he stepped away from acting, Willis was actually still in the process of making several movies, one of them being “Detective Knight: Redemption.” A seemingly thriller-like Christmas movie, the trailer was just released right in time for the holidays.
In the film, Willis plays Knight, a detective who is now in prison and finds himself in the middle of a jailbreak staged by “The Christmas Bomber,” who terrorizes the city along with a slew of criminals dressed as Santa Claus. Creepy!
“With the promised return of his badge in exchange for taking out the terrorists, the steely-eyed Knight doles out mercy for the just — and merciless justice for all the rest,” ,” the official synopsis reads.
Willis was always acting in films that were unique like this. In fact, this new film has us thinking about the popular fan debate over whether Willis’ iconic 1988 film Die Hard qualifies as a Christmas movie—some people say yes, since it place on Dcember 25th, but since it’s such a non-cliché action film, many people say no.
This new film is certainly a Christmas movie, but isn’t giving us the warm and fuzzies the way classics like Home Alone or Elf do. It does, however, look like an amazing film! Check out the official trailer below.
Mark your calendar for December 9, 2022, which is when the film is set to be released!
