He’s a tall drink of water, that Josh Duhamel, and he shows off his best assets — literally — as a firefighter who witnesses a murder in the official trailer for his upcoming action thriller Fire With Fire, also starring Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, and Vincent D’Onofrio.
The Lionsgate movie is being released Nov. 6 direct to Blu-ray, DVD, Digital Download, On Demand and Pay-Per-View, instead of in movie theaters.
Check out an exclusive peak at the official trailer, below.
Duhamel, as firefighter Jeremy Coleman, is in the wrong place at the wrong time, and sees a hulking psychopath – D’Onofrio – shoot and kill someone in a convenience store. Duhamel picks the brute out of a police lineup, and a classic game of cat-and-mouse ensues. He goes into witness protection, his identity is erased, he becomes “a ghost,” and Rosario Dawson shows him how to shoot a big big gun.
Not surprisingly, he and Dawson, as U.S. Marshall Talia Durham, strip down and get to know each other in the biblical sense. Willis plays a detective. 50 Cent, a co-producer on the film, with a cameo role in it, is a no -show in the trailer.
While certain lines feel overly familiar – D’Onofrio intones in a drawl, “Every man’s got his dark side” – there’s plenty of fancy shooting, sweaty skin, large cars, explosions, and, yes, flames and fire.
