The Last Mercenary Trailer Starring Jean-Claude Van Damme


Jean-Claude Van Damme is shifting back into self-aware mode with the upcoming action-comedy The Last Mercenary, which is heading to Netflix next month. Directed by David Charhon (On the Other Side of the Tracks), the movie is a French production that finds Van Damme playing a former secret service agent nicknamed The Mist who must return to France to help his estranged son who has been framed by a terrorist organization. It is not quite as meta as JCVD or the short-lived Amazon series Jean-Claude Van Johnson, but it finds him donning some fun disguises and just generally playing up his action star persona in a way that seems likely to amuse fans. The Last Mercenary arrives on Netflix on July 30th; check out the trailer below and see what you think.
