Apparently it’s “old guys doing action things” week here at Collider. The geriatric throwdown The Expendables 2 opens this Friday, we just saw the first trailer for the Arnold Schwarzenegger-starrer The Last Stand, and now the first trailer for Bullet to the Head with Sylvester Stallone has landed online. Directed by Walter Hill (48 Hrs.) and based on the graphic novel of the same name, Stallone plays a New Orleans hitman who teams up with a New York City cop (Sung Kang) to take on the killers of their respective partners. I really wanted to see something special from the Stallone/Hill team-up, but this trailer doesn’t exactly inspire much confidence. The jokes are tired (Stallone thinks Kang fits every Asian stereotype, Kang thinks Stallone is old) and Stallone seems to be taking things a bit too seriously. I’d love nothing more than to be pleasantly surprised, so here’s hoping the finished film delivers the goods.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Jason Momoa, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Sarah Shahi, and Christian Slater. Bullet to the Head opens on February 1st, 2013.
