Summit Entertainment has released the first image of Jason Statham and Jessica Alba in "Mechanic: Resurrection," the sequel to the 2011 action thriller "The Mechanic."
Directed by Dennis Gansel ("We Are the Night"), the film finds Arthur Bishop (Statham) retired from life as a contract killer following his narrow escape from the murder attempt by partner turned enemy Steve McKenna (Ben Foster). However, when his most formidable foe kidnaps the love of his life, Bishop is forced to travel the globe to complete three seemingly impossible assassinations -- while making them look like accidents, of course.
A remake of the 1972 Charles Bronson film of the same name, "The Mechanic" grossed $62 million worldwide on an estimated $40 million.
Opening Aug. 26, "Mechanic: Resurrection" also stars Tommy Lee Jones and Michelle Yeoh.
