Steven Seagal squares off against the formidable Vinnie Jones in the first trailer for Absolution. This action-thriller reunites Steven Seagal with director Keoni Waxman, who has directed the actor's last three films, Maximum Conviction, Force of Execution and A Good Man. As you can see in the footage below, these two action icons will do whatever it takes to come out on top.

When a contract killer (Steven Seagal) encounters a girl on the run from a dangerous, politically connected mob boss (Vinnie Jones) running a human trafficking operation, he is torn between protecting the girl, and remaining loyal to the government agency that hired him. Byron Mann, Josh Barnett, Adina Stetcu and Massimo Dobrovic also star. This new film from Lionsgate will be released in theaters and on VOD formats starting May 15.

In addition to the trailer, we also have the first poster for Absolution, which you can check out under the poster. What do you think about this new footage? Should Steven Seagal keep his goatee look for future projects? Take a look at the footage and poster, and let us know what you think.
