Wow! Dame Helen Mirren, the 64-year old Academy Award winning actress and all-round beauty, doesn't look like she's slowing down anytime soon. Far from it... not only has she just appeared topless in some tasteful Juergen Teller photos for NYmag (to promote one of her new films, Love Ranch) she's also just arrived online in the first trailer for forthcoming action flick Red. And she's shooting people. With a big gun. Like I said... wow!

Red is an adaptation of the DC comic of the same name, about ex-CIA agents who aren't taking to retirement that well. Thankfully for them (and us) they have to come fighting and take on a group of younger agents sent by their previous employer to wipe them out.

The stellar cast alongside Mirren includes Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, Richard Dreyfuss, Weeds' Mary Louise Parker and Bruce Willis. What's more, it looks absolutely ace - a tongue-in-cheek action and bullet-fest with, like, proper actors.

It's good to see Bruce back too, seeing as he's hardly been choosing quality films lately (Surrogates, anyone?) and, well... how can you go wrong with one of Britain's best loved actresses wielding some heavy weaponry? As she told NYmag: "I'm still the good girl who wants to be a bad girl." Well, Dame Helen, you look exquisitely bad in this trailer...

So, we'll wait and see how this one pans out but, for the time being, I'm content to relax and say (along with the rest of the internet) that Red looks like it could be one of the year's most enjoyable movies.
