Killer Elite is the new action thriller with a killer lineup, starring Jason Statham, Clive Owen, and Robert DeNiro.   It's rare, but enjoyable, to see multiple A-list actors in one film.  The film is based on the 1991 novel, The Feather Men by Ranulph Fiennes.  The Feather Men is about a series of assassinations of members of Britain's elite Special Air Service (SAS) by a group of hit men called The Clinic.  In order to protect themselves and avenge their fallen comrades, the remaining squad members come together.

From what I can gather from the trailer, Danny Bryce's (Jason Statham) mentor, Hunter (Robert De Niro) is kidnapped, which forces Danny out of retirement and into kicking some serious butt.  Danny has to take on three assassins sent by Spike, played by none other than Clive Owen.  There was also a 1975 film of the same name, but I don't believe the original film had the same storyline.  

The first scene of the preview is classic Jason Statham, which immediately grabbed my attention.  Any movie I get to see Jason Statham tussling with Clive Owen is a good movie.  I will go see this one with my dad.
