The stars of "Red 2" come out of retirement for a sequel. Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Catherine Zeta-Jones and the rest of their entourage team up to fight off an army of assassins in the action-comedy flick. The plot focuses on the retired CIA operatives, as they track down a nuclear terrorist who has framed Willis' character. For Jones, being on set was nerve-wracking, but she said it paid off. SOUNDBITE: Catherine Zeta-Jones, actress, saying (English): "I'm always nervous the first day of a movie set, it's like the first day of school to me and I'm going to be called to the Principal's office any minute, and they're going to say, 'You can't do this.' I have reoccurring nightmares about that, but right now, I'm really happy with the movie, it's so much fun to be part of and watch as a movie lover myself." Willis previously said that his action scene with Karl Urban in 2010's "Red" was one of the toughest fights he had ever filmed. But he now says his scene with Byung-hun Lee in "Red 2" goes even further. SOUNDBITE: Bruce Willis, actor, saying (English): "Karl Urban, he just threw me through a big plate glass window, that was the hardest thing that happened in that film, but Byung-hun Lee, he kicked my ass." Explosions, fist fights, helicopter crashes and comedic one-liners abound when "Red 2" blasts into theaters on July 19th.
