It wouldn’t be a release for The Expendables 2 if we didn’t get the latest trailers for all of the upcoming action movies featuring our stars. Earlier today we had a kick-ass look at Arnold Schwarzenegger’s The Last Stand and now it’s Sylvester Stallone turn. After being delayed from this past spring, we’ve got the trailer for Walter Hill‘s first film since 2002′s Undisputed. A throwback, ’80s-esque actioner Bullet to the Head features a cop and hitman teaming up to take down an evil villain.
Unfortunately, it’s not too promising. It’s hard to follow Kim Ji-woon‘s eye for action but the whole older generation shtick doesn’t work as well here. The explosions and jokes seem quite recycled and the story is about as generic as they come. Hill nailed the buddy cop dynamic with 48 Hrs., but considering that was thirty years ago, let’s hope the actual film contains some of that magic. Check it out below for the actioner also featuring Sung Kang, Sarah Shahi, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Christian Slater and Holt McCallany.
Bullet to the Head hits theaters on February 1st, 2013.
