I really didn't think The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day would actually make it to completion. Given the legend of Troy Duffy and the decade that's passed since the original, I thought it'd be a lot of "It's filming soon!" announcements via Duffy's blog, and never come to be. But it has, and here's its first trailer, courtesy of IGN.

Now, let me be honest. I don't loathe The Boondock Saints as much as I probably should. It's one of those films that escaped my notice for years until the t-shirts started showing up at Hot Topic, and guys I knew were dressing as the Saints for Halloween. I watched it, I laughed at the rope scene, and then never thought about it again. Until now, and something tells me I'm going to experience a wave of cultish fandom that will really bug me.

Or not. Even from my lukewarm Saints stance, the trailer is really pretty boring. There's a lot of gun loading, a lot of shooting, a lot of leaping, and a really hideous moment involving Julie Benz's FBI Agent and her high heels. It does feel like some kind of portal into 1999 cool, and the fact that Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus haven't aged a day in ten years just makes it an even creepier time warp. But if you love, love, love all things Boondock Saints, something tells me you'll be thrilled by everything promised here. Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Days hits theaters on October 30.
