Bullet To The Head Poster Crashes Online
Dodgy photoshopping never gets old

14 December 2012  |  Written by Owen Williams  |  Source: IGN

Sly Stallone's Bullet To The Head looks like a gleefully unreconstructed old-school actioner. So it seems appropriate that it's just received a barely constructed poster. Displaying a few bullet-holes, a splash of blood and a rather wonkily rotated and already widely distributed still of Stallone, it is, shall we say, a little slapdash. Hopefully that's not a reflection of the finished movie.

Bullet To The Head Poster

Fear not though: we have high hopes for lowbrow awesomeness from Bullet To The Head, since it's directed by action maestro Walter Hill (48 Hours, The Long Riders, Southern Comfort). The film is set in New Orleans, and it's about a cop (Sung Kang) and a hitman (Stallone) who join forces to take down their common enemy Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.

It's based on the French comics series by Alex "Matz" Nolent and Colin Wilson, and it's Hill's first cinematic outing since Undisputed in 2002. Amazingly, he never worked with Stallone back in the day, but he racked up Sly's fellow Expendables Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis in, respectively, Red Heat and Last Man Standing.

Christian Slater, Jason Momoa, Holt McCallany and Sarah Shahi are also on board, and it's out in the UK on February 1.

RE: Bullet To The Head Poster Crashes Online
The trailer for this is brilliant. It manages to tell you the whole story-line within its two and a half minutes. More

Revenge never gets old.....
but apparently it does like to wax it`s eyebrows ! Love Sly,love Walter Hill but this just looks silly. The ropey eyebrow acting in this puts even Rodger Moore to shame. More
