Bruce Willis Goes Back to Space in “Cosmic Sin” Trailer

It seems like just yesterday Bruce Willis played the grizzled old veteran sent to space on a dangerous mission. But Armageddon was two decades and a lot of movies ago. Bruce Willis still stars in action and sci-fi movies, but most of them you probably won't ever see or even hear about. Unlike most of his recent output, Cosmic Sin will at least get a theatrical release. But it's still in line with the cheap Redbox fodder he's churned out lately.

Willis stars as James Ford, a disgraced soldier recruited for a mission to wipe out an alien species that threatens Earth. He reluctantly agrees to lead a team of similarly expendable mercenaries to save the planet. This leads to some questionable CGI and lot of explosions. But at least Frank Grillo (Captain America: Civil War) is along for the ride. There's definitely potential here, or there would be if Willis even looked awake.

Cosmic Sin will hit theaters, as well as digital rental and VOD outlets, on March 12.


About Kip Mooney

Kip Mooney
Like many film critics born during and after the 1980s, my hero is Roger Ebert. The man was already the best critic in the nation when he won the Pulitzer in 1975, but his indomitable spirit during and after his recent battle with cancer keeps me coming back to read not only his reviews but his insightful commentary on the everyday. But enough about a guy you know a lot about. I knew I was going to be a film critic—some would say a snob—in middle school, when I had to voraciously defend my position that The Royal Tenenbaums was only a million times better than Adam Sandler’s remake of Mr. Deeds. From then on, I would seek out Wes Anderson’s films and avoid Sandler’s like the plague. Still, I like to think of myself as a populist, and I’ll be just as likely to see the next superhero movie as the next Sundance sensation. The thing I most deplore in a movie is laziness. I’d much rather see movies with big ambitions try and fail than movies with no ambitions succeed at simply existing. I’m also a big advocate of fun-bad movies like The Room and most of Nicolas Cage’s work. In the past, I’ve written for The Dallas Morning News and the North Texas Daily, which I edited for a semester. I also contributed to Dallas-based Pegasus News, which in the circle of life, is now part of The Dallas Morning News, where I got my big break in 2007. Eventually, I’d love to write and talk about film full-time, but until that’s a viable career option, I work as an auditor for Wells Fargo. I hope to one day meet my hero, go to the Toronto International Film Festival, and compete on Jeopardy. Until then, I’m excited to share my love of film with you.
