One look at the trailer for 'Repo Men' and you know you're in for some grisly business. Flesh incisions are a common sight, as are bloody, freshly removed organs. "It should be shocking," says star Jude Law. "What's interesting about this is that it's set in a realistic world, and you should be shocked at how desensitized these guys are."

"These guys" are Remy (Law) and Jake (Forest Whitaker), repo men in a not-so-distant futuristic metropolis who specialize in collecting organs from the unlucky souls who've fallen behind on payments to "The Union." In a way, the two are like corporate grim reapers; nothing quite kills your day like having your heart literally ripped from your chest.

"It's pretty heavy, I mean you can't make a movie about organ transplants without a little blood and gore," says Liev Schreiber, who plays Frank, Remy and Jake's smarmy superior at The Union. "[Director Miguel Sapochnik] definitely goes over the top in a wonderful way," adds Schreiber, who admits he "cringes a little" at the film's gore.

We sat down with Law, Whitaker, Schreiber and Alice Braga (the 'City of God' alum plays a lounge singer whose entire body, practically, is on loan), to talk about the film's social messages (you don't have to look too hard to see it touches on both the health care debate and the state of credit and loans), Law's impressive action skills, and whether or not there were in fact organs being tossed about the set.

Also on the menu: scoop on a sequel to the winter hit 'Sherlock Holmes' ("I haven't heard that we're definitely going yet," Law says, "But I think it's probably likely, and if we do it, it'll probably be sometime this year, with the same team") and the new 'Predators' reboot, which just made headlines for its preview footage at SXSW. "The predator looks really scary, the story is going to surprise a lot of people, and there's a lot of running," says Braga, who co-stars with Adrien Brody and Topher Grace. "My character's running for her life, and running as fast as she can."
