Bruce Willis: "Well there's a big audience here over this weekend, right? You guys are here with the cameras and stuff. Marketing's everything these days in Hollywood. And apparently there are a ton of movie stars in San Diego this week."
"[Red] is a comic book movie. This is a graphic comic book movie so, yeah, I think it works.

Bruce Willis: "I do?"
You do. So what was it about this one that made you pick up the script? What was it about this one that made it so important for you not to pass on?
Bruce Willis: "Well it's not just action. It's not just action, it's action, romance, and comedy all woven together in one story which is a lot more ambitious than just blowing stuff up. And I'm not quite sure that it's so much about the fact that I do so many action films, but just what films get noticed and what films don't.

Bruce Willis: "X-ray vision."
What would you do with it? Who would you like to see?
Bruce Willis: "See how much money... Oh, you went right there. No, I want to see what things are made of. Did you ever see that show How It's Made? That's me."
