THE MOVIE: It’s a match made in heaven: Sylvester Stallone teams up with The Warriors and 48 Hours director Walter Hill for a buddy-cop action flick starring Sung Kang of the Fast and Furious franchise. Also starring Christian Slater, Jason Momoa, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. In theaters February 1, 2013.
Updates: What’s Playing notes that the film is meant to be an homage to 80s buddy-cop films like Hill’s own 48 Hours. ComicBookMovie has the first image from the film. Axe fight! AICN has a look at a Sly with a dragon tattoo.
Twitch has the story saying Warner Brothers has pulled Bullet to the Head from its April 13th release date – and has not issued a replacement date. Twitch has breaking news that Sylvester Stallone is overseeing a final edit of the film. AICN has the word directly from Sly Stallone: “I have nothing to do with the editing to ‘Bullet to the Head.’ Walter is doing a FANTASTIC job! I think it is a FANTASTIC job and he’s editing it!”
Meanwhile, over at MovieHole, Walter Hill speaks: “…as to the content and style of the film, Sly and I are in perfect sync. I’m delighted with the way the film is turning out and hopefully so will the audience.”
Deadline reports the film now has a release date of February 1, 2013. That’s a delay of almost a year. A Stallone action movie we thought we would see months before Expendables 2 now won’t hit theaters until next year.
Here’s the first official trailer. A perfect companion piece to Schwarzenegger’s The Last Stand trailer, which was also released today. Trailer #2 is online now for your viewing pleasure. The Playlist has new images of Stallone, Momoa & Slater.
Check out the new official poster. Funny thing is, the “fan” poster I designed months ago looks almost exactly like it, with the exception of a few minor differences. Collider has a pack of new images. Take a look at the new poster. Check out an awesome new clip, featuring a bathroom brawl between Stallone and Momoa.
