Second ‘Bullet to the Head’ Trailer Keeps the Focus on High-Octane Action

Published 3 years ago by

Ever since his career resurgence back in 2006, Sylvester Stallone has been on quite a roll. The action star – whose career began to suffer in the late 1990s – first revisited his two most famous characters in Rocky Balboa (2006) and Rambo (2008) before assembling an action dream team in The Expendables and this year’s Expedables.

Not one to rest on his reclaimed success, Stallone has been adding numerous projects to his schedule. Later this year, he’ll reteam with fellow action icon Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Tomb, and he recently committed to co-star opposite Robert Deniro in boxing comedy Grudge Match. However, he’ll first test his box office strength with director Walter Hill’s Bullet to the Head.

The film’s second domestic trailer has just been released, and though the footage hews closely to the international trailer from a few weeks back, it does continue to play up the partnership between Stallone’s character, New Orleans hitman Jimmy Bobo and that of straight-laced cop Taylor Kwon (Fast Five‘s Sung Kang). This is, of course, right up Hill’s alley, as he brought buddy actioners like 48 Hrs. and Red Heat to life back in the 1980s.

sly1 Second Bullet to the Head Trailer Keeps the Focus on High Octane Action

Despite the cliché premise of two unlikely men forming a shaky alliance in pursuit of a common enemy, Bullet to the Head appears to offer plenty of that high-octane, check-your-brain-at-the-door action that hardcore Stallone fans have come to expect. In particular, an intense ax battle between the former Rambo and Jason Momoa (Conan the Barbarian, Game of Thrones) should bring the film – regardless of how good or bad the finished product is – to a thrilling climax. Based on the Headshot graphic novels, the film co-stars Christian Slater, Sarah Shahi and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.
