I didn’t rush out to see the first Crank when it came out two and a half years ago, but I did catch it on video and it was certainly an enjoyable little film. A smart, insane, tongue-in-cheek hyperactive adrenaline shot (kinda literally) of pure cinematic madness. What more could you ask for? Well, if you think of anything, this hilariously genius new poster for its sequel, Crank: High Voltage, should sate you.
Not only is it one of the most oddly ridiculous images you’ll ever see (although, once you see that it’s Jason Statham, you kinda go, “Oh, well that makes sense”), but it’s cold hard proof that this movie knows exactly what it is, what it’s here for, and is basking in it.
Poor Statham died at the very end of the original when his frail little body struck the ground after falling out of a plane, so just how in the heck is he back for the sequel??? For more information, please refer to the tag line.
