Bullet To The Head Trailer Arrives
Revenge never gets old for Stallone

Anything Arnie can do, Sly can do, er, sweatier. It’s the battle of the old guys, old mates and old friendly rivals today as both the Expendables action legends have new trailers out. You may already have seen Schwarzenegger in the promo for The Last Stand (if not, rectify that here), but here comes Stallone with Bullet To The Head. Check out the first trailer below via IGN.

Adapted from Alexis Nolent’s graphic novel Headshot, Bullet finds Sly as Jimmy Bob, a hit man enraged that his partner has been killed. Swearing revenge, he teams up with a cop (Sung Kang), who has also lost a colleague, to take down the big bad Keegan (Jason Momoa). Along the way, there are plenty of the expected brawls, bullets and blood spilling as Kang’s Taylor Kwon is endlessly shocked by Jimmy’s violent ways. But then, he is a hitman…

Walter Hill directed the film and co-wrote the screenplay with Alessandro Camon, but there have been whispers of trouble in the editing room and rumours of Sly taking over the movie. The result seems a little mixed on this scant evidence, but of course we’ll reserve judgement until the finished project arrives. At the very least, Stallone seems to be enjoying himself…

Bullet To The Head will shoot in our cinemas on February 1 next year.

Disappointing
Terribly disappointed to see that Rocky left boxing behind and went back to working for Tony Gazzo as an enforcer. More

RE: Stallone's getting too cushy
The only reason I have any interest in this is that Walter Hill is involved. Great director. More

Stallone's getting too cushy
Stallone may be riding on this sudden wave of revitalised curiosity about his vintage brand of action film for now, but soon enough, we are all going to remember why we lost interest in those films and his career all those years ago. This mind-numbing explosive Stallone action smorgasbord will reach it's zenith unless he delves deeper and looks closely at what made him great in the first place. Make a Tango and Cash trilogy, now that would be risque, retro and rad. More

Kim Jee-Woon is no Walter Hill...
When Kim produces a classic like The Warriors, The Driver or 48Hrs, then I'll stand up & take notice. From the look of this trailer, there is enough potential for a fun action film here. More

nice dodge though
if its as tough and bloody as the trailer would have us believe it'll be good fun. thing is, i doubt it will be. bits sounded like the script from Die Hard 4 (the music in the car bit) and other bits he sounded like he was just re reading stuff from Rocky Balboa. Everyone gets old (don't I know it) but these guys need to stop banging on about it quite so much. we know they're a bit wrinkly and been around the block a good few times, and we're fine with that. Just stop with the 'i'm too old for More

Well, the Arnold's LAST STAND trailer knocked my socks off.
This one, not so much. Walter Hill is no Kim Jee-Woon. More

Hitman And Miss
The trailer looks quite cliched with Stallone on autopilot. No wonder this has taken so long to get to the big screen. More jokes in it about Stallone being old, he's at the same stage in his career now as John Wayne was when he was doing McQ and Brannigan. More
