New ‘Bloodshot’ Trailer: Upcoming Comic Book Movie Turns Vin Diesel Into a Superpowered Soldier

Sony Pictures

Check out the new trailer that’s arrived for Bloodshot, the upcoming adaptation of the Valiant Comics comic book.

Vin Diesel takes on the titular role, aka Ray Garrison, a soldier that is brought back to life using cutting edge technology that lends him an array of new abilities – such as instant healing. The problem: It appears that the man behind Garrison’s new role has an agenda – and Bloodshot is essentially his property. So, it’s up to Diesel to fight back. “You made me,” Diesel tells Guy Pearce’s bad guy. “But you can’t control me forever.”

The new trailer below has a few moments we didn’t see in the first one, and it again offers up an energetic look at some slick action and visuals. There seems to be some fun to be had here, although this thing could go either way. If you’re a Diesel fan, it’s certainly one to put on the calendar, although I personally haven’t been a fan of non Fast & Furious efforts such as The Last Witch Hunter and xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. Fingers crossed for it.

And here’s hoping that it marks a strong feature directorial debut for Dave Wilson, who directed one of the stronger shorts in Netflix’s anthology series Love, Death & Robots with Sonnie’s Edge.

Bloodshot, also starring Eiza González, Sam Heughan, Toby Kebbell and Talulah Riley, arrives in Australia on March 12 and opens in the US on March 13.

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 super-human 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.
