Bad Disguises, Bad Accent & Michael Chiklis: It's The Trailer For Jason Statham's 'Parker'

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist October 3, 2012 at 12:48PM

If you're a professional thief, living outside the law, you'd think that if you're going to wear a disguise it would be more than putting on a pair of glasses or wearing a cowboy hat. But then again, when it comes to Jason Statham, he breaks all the rules. The first trailer for "Parker" is here and well...it's a Jason Statham movie.

If you're a professional thief, living outside the law, you'd think that if you're going to wear a disguise it would be more than putting on a pair of glasses or wearing a cowboy hat. But then again, when it comes to Jason Statham, he breaks all the rules. The first trailer for "Parker" is here and well...it's a Jason Statham movie.

This time around he plays Frank Martin Parker, one of those respectable criminal types who has A Code and Doesn't Hurt Innocent People. But he runs up against the formidable wall that is Michael Chiklis, who double crosses him and leaves him for dead. But this being a movie, he doesn't actually makes sure Parker has been killed, and the next thing you know, Statham is trying on a southern accent, hanging with Jennifer Lopez who knows the locals, and is rolling in Palm Beach as he plans his revenge. Wait, what? Nevermind, here's a bunch of explosions and Statham Poses.

This looks pretty dreadful and even wastes Nick Nolte who seems like he will be on the other end of a phone for most of the movie. Maybe this will be worth watching to see Chiklis do some over the top, bad guy mugging? Maybe. Whatevs. "Parker" opens on January 25th and will probably be on DVD a few months later. Trailer and new pics from EW below.
