Righteous Kill trailer anything but righteous

Even since it filmed in last fall in Connecticut, I’ve been looking forward to “Righteous Kill” — the first film starring both Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro since “Heat” — about as much, if not more than, than Indiana Jones 4. Well, after seeing trailers for both [“Righteous Kill,” “Indiana Jones”], it’s clear that Indy will once again win the day. Or rather, summer box office.

And of course I love the shot of DeNiro at the end, mouthing off to Terry Serpico.

It’s just one of those trailers where you feel like you know most of the plot before you even fork over your $10. The Indiana Jones teaser, meanwhile, gets me to reflexively reach for my wallet and pull out a Hamilton without even thinking.

But what do you think? Watch the trailers after the break and judge for yourself.

“Righteous Kill”

Is it just me, or does that warehouse half-way through totally look like the one from the end of “Raiders of the Lost Ark”?
