Now, Lionsgate has released the first international trailer for this remake of the 1987 Heat, which starred Burt Reynolds and is based on the William Goldman novel. Also starring Michael Angarano, Milo Ventimiglia and Dominik García-Lorido, the film follows a gambling addicted bodyguard who gets in over his head with the mob.

Jason Statham stars as Nick Wild (Jason Statham), a Las Vegas protector-for-hire with lethal professional skills and a personal gambling problem.
