International Trailer for Bullet to the Head Starring Sylvester Stallone: More Action, New Cliches
10.01.12 by Ryan
The Expendables 2 was a one of the bigger hits of the summer, taking the top spot at the box office for two weeks straight, while earning $285 million worldwide. This could be good news for the Sylvester Stallone–starring Bullet to the Head, which is due in theaters next February.
Stallone stars as a New Orleans hitman looking for revenge against the men that killed his partner and kidnapped his daughter (Sarah Shahi). Stallone teams with a New York cop (Fast Five's Sung Kang), who also lost his partner to the same villains (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Jason Momoa). The first trailer for the movie was released in August, revealing director Walter Hill's penchant for riffing on the age, race and cultural differences between Stallone and Kang that he used to effect in his 80s-era action movies like 48 HRS and Red Heat. The trailer also included a grab bag of movie cliches, with Stallone declaring "I take out the trash."
The latest international trailer sticks to the structure, adding more action and a few new action movie one-liners as well.
Bang, Pow Trailers
Based on the French graphic novel Du Plomb dans la Tête, Bullet to the Head was written by Alessandro Camon (The Messenger) and co-stars Holt McCallany (The Losers) and Christian Slater (Heathers), whose character seems to suffer the fate mentioned in the title.
