Second Trailer for Bullet to the Head Starring a "Bad-Ass" Sylvester Stallone

"Bang. Down. Owned."
Sylvester Stallone returned to action movie relevance by returning to his iconic characters with 2006's Rocky Balboa and 2008's Rambo, but it was 2010's The Expendables that separated Stallone from his past and declared he was still an action movie star to be reckoned with. The Expendables 2 only cemented Stallone's box office draw and, next year, he will co-star alongside fellow Expendable Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Tomb. First, however, Stallone will test his box office moxie with Bullet to the Head, which teams him with Fast Five's Sung Kang and director Walter Hill (48 Hrs., The Warriors), whom Stallone somehow didn't work with in the 1980s.
The second domestic trailer is now online, and is mostly a repeat of the international trailer that arrived earlier this month, with the exception of adding Memphis-based hard rock band Saliva's "Badass" to the latter part of the trailer

Based on the French graphic novel Du Plomb dans la Tête, Bullet to the Head follows Stallone as a New Orleans hitman looking for revenge against the men that killed his partner and kidnapped his daughter (Sarah Shahi). Kang plays a New York cop who has also lost his partner to the same men Stallone is hunting, and together, despite their differences in age, sides of the law, and musical tastes go after the baddies.
Bullet to the Head was written by Alessandro Camon (The Messenger) and co-stars Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra), Jason Momoa (Conan the Barbarian), Holt McCallany (The Losers) and Christian Slater (Heathers).
