Having had its release date bumped back a notch, Jason Statham action thriller Homefront has wisely decided to throw in another trailer to keep the anticipation ticking over.

But this is far from a run-of-the-mill Statham actioner, as this offering sees the star up against the likes of James Franco and Winona Ryder in villainous roles.

Statham plays Phil Broker, a former undercover cop who moves to the sticks to try and enjoy the quiet life.

Wouldn’t you know though, he’s soon finding himself locking horns with the local drug lord and his moll (Franco & Ryder respectively) and with kidnapping and the like on the menu, Broker has to return to action to protect his family.

Based on the Chuck Logan novel, scripted by none other than Sylvester StalloneĀ and directed by Gary Fleder, Homefront arrives in cinemas on December 6.
