Check out the first trailer for “Daredevil” director Mark Steven Johnson’s latest, the survival thriller “Killing Season”, which pits John Travolta against Robert De Niro with bows and arrows in the wilds. Why bows and arrows? Probably because if you gave them guns things might finish too fast, I guess. Bang — you’re dead. With bow and arrows, you can wing someone and they can hop away to fight another day. When you only have two characters fighting in a movie, I guess you’d need that.
Anyways, take a look at the first trailer for “Killing Season”. It looks decent, though it’s interesting that it’s from Mark Steven Johnson, the guy behind “Ghost Rider” and “Daredevil”. I think that’s the most interesting part of the entire movie, to be honest with you.
Deep in the Appalachian mountains, a reclusive American military veteran (Robert De Niro) and a European tourist (John Travolta) strike up an unlikely friendship. But when the tourist’s true intentions come to light, what follows is a tense battle across some of America’s most forbidding landscape proving the old adage: the purest form of war is one-on-one.
Starring Robert De Niro, John Travolta, Milo Ventimiglia and Elizabeth Olin.
The killing season begins on VOD/in theaters this July 12, 2013.
