Killing Season Poster Up

De Niro & Travolta get loaded

Looking for all the world like they just saw someone who dissed Battlefield Earth and Meet The Fockers and decided to act, John Travolta and Robert De Niro are tooled up in the first poster for indie action thriller Killing Season. Take a look...

In actual fact, the film – which sees Mark Steven Johnson directing an Evan Daugherty script – has Bosnian War veteran De Niro living off the grid deep in the Appalachian mountains.

When a European tourist (Travolta) shows up, the pair forms an unlikely friendship. But wouldn’t you know it: the tourist is also a Bosnian veteran, except he fought for Serbia... And what follows is a tense battle across some of America’s most forbidding landscape proving the old adage: the purest form of war is one-on-one.

That’s it, it’s war, and we predict bang after bang after bang on this one. Well, bang after thwip, given that Travolta’s Emil Kovac is going all Katniss Everdeen there with a bow.

Elizabeth Olin and Milo Ventimiglia are also in the cast for the movie, which hits the US on July 12, but has no set UK date yet.
