Righteous Kill - photos from the red carpet premiere!

Robert De Niro and Al Pacino arrived at the New York red carpet premiere of their new film ‘Righteous Kill‘ at the renown Ziegfeld Theater in Manhattan. The two superstars and iconic figures posed for what seemed hours to the hysterical paparazzi. Colombian actor John Leguizamo was in hand along with director Jon Avnet. Donnie Wahlberg, member of the newly reunited New Kids On the Block, took time out of his world tour to attend as well.

The films premise revolves around two teteran New York City police detectives on the trail of a vigilante serial killer in the adrenaline fueled psychological thriller Righteous Kill, directed by Jon Avnet (Red Corner, Fried Green Tomatoes) and written by Russell Gewirtz (Inside Man). The cast also features hip-hop superstar Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson (Get Rich or Die Tryin’).

‘Righteous Kill’ – 13 scenes from the film!

'Righteous Kill' - 13 scenes from the film!

I’m not sure about you guys, but as much as I liked ‘Heat’, I felt I was ripped off. In 1995 I left the theater dissatisfied knowing that my two favorite actors barely shared any scenes together, if that. Now after much bitterness and polemic, both iconic American actors and Academy Award winners, Robert De Niro and Al Pacino reunite once again to give the audience a full taste of what they didn’t offer us 13 years ago.

Righteous Kill, directed and produced by Jon Avnet (88 Minutes, Up Close & Personal) centers around Turk (De Niro) and Rooster (Pacino), two veteran New York City detectives who are trying to identify the possible connection between a recent murder and a case they believe they solved years ago. The plot thickens with questions such as, is there a serial killer on the loose, and did they perhaps put the wrong person behind bars? We’ll see if the film is any good, I hope so!
