The first trailer for Sylvester Stallone's upcoming epic, Bullet To The Head has hit with a white-hot vengeful fury.
Based on the French graphic novel, Du Plomb Dans La Tete by Alexis Nolent, this film, much like Schwarzenegger's The Last Stand (whose trailer also just hit,) will surely look to capitalize on the post-Expendables 2 momentum of old-school action goodness.
Check below for the action-packed pulse-pounding trailer, as Sly, looking like the most ripped 66-year-old ever, teams up with an unlikely partner for revenge; the most satisfying motivation for an action hero there could be.
Stallone plays an aging hitman who is grief-stricken by the death of his partner that finds a common enemy with a young NYPD police detective (Sung Kang) who has also lost his partner.
Together, this duo exact their revenge on the low-life scum (albeit skillful low-life scum) responsible for those deaths (Jason Momoa) in a situation with higher stakes than they could have imagined.
There seems to be some good chemistry between the Stallone/Kang duo that should make this action-packed thriller a potential classic.
Bullet To The Head directed by Walter Hill axe-duals its way to theaters on February 1, 2013.
