BLOODSHOT - International Trailer #2.
After leading a successful rescue operation in Mombasa, U.S. Airmen Ray Garrison (Vin Diesel) and his wife Gina travel for a holiday at an Italian beachside town in the Amalfi Coast. However, they are kidnapped by a group of mercenaries led by Martin Axe (Toby Kebbell), who demands to know the source of the Mombasa hostage operation. Since Ray is not privy to this information, Axe kills him and Gina.
Ray is later resurrected by Rising Spirit Tech, a company that specializes in developing cybernetic enhancements for disabled US military personnel. The company's CEO, Dr. Emil Harting (Guy Pearce), tells Ray that he is the first successful candidate that they have resurrected using a special nanite technology. Ray is also introduced to Dr Harting's other patients including former US Navy diver "KT", whom he strikes a friendship with, and former soldiers Jimmy Dalton (Sam Heughan) and Marcus Tibbs (Alex Hernandez), with whom he gets on poorly.
After experiencing "flashbacks" of Gina and Axe, Ray escapes Rising Spirit's laboratory in Kuala Lumpur and pursues Axe, seeking to avenge Gina's death. Using the nanites to hack into computer databases, Ray tracks down Axe to Budapest. After trapping his convoy in a tunnel, Ray kills Axe's bodyguards before executing the mercenary. He is later recovered by KT (Eiza González), Dalton and Tibbs, who bring him back to Rising Spirit for reprogramming. In truth, Harting created false memories of Gina's death as part of a plot to eliminate rivals in Rising Spirit.
After his memories are wiped and reprogrammed, Ray is sent to kill Nick Baris (Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson) in East Sussex, "remembering" him to be Gina's killer. Though Ray manages to kill Baris and his bodyguards, Baris has forced computer programmer Wilfred Wigans (Lamorne Morris) to build an EMP bomb, which is ignited after Baris' death, incapacitating Ray and severing communications with Rising Spirit. After "resurrecting" Ray, Wigans reveals that Rising Spirit planted false memories to turn him into a killing machine. Ray also discovers Gina is alive but had left him five years ago and started a family in Westminster.
