The Retired, Extremely Dangerous agents and assassins of the world are back for another absurd action comedy this summer, as the first trailer for RED 2 -- the sequel to the surprise hit movie based on Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner's 2003 comic -- hits the Internet. Click through to see the carnage for yourself.As the trailer shows, RED 2 re-teams Bruce Willis, Mary-Louise Parker, Helen Mirren and the wonderful scene-chewing presence that is John Malkovich against some very familiar faces, including Catherine Zeta-Jones and Anthony Hopkins. Just think of it as The Expendables for actors who went to RADA. And, of course, the guy who was in Die Hard.

RED 2 is set to arrive in theaters on August 1.
