The first trailer for Mark Steven Johnson’s action thriller Killing Season is now available.  Starring John Travolta and Robert De Niro as two military veterans, the movie pits them against each other in a test for survival when past grievances bubble to the surface.  This one came completely out of left field and this trailer hints at just why that might be.  I have no idea why De Niro or Travolta signed on, unless it was to take another crack at an action film, but this first look doesn’t exactly promise the best work of their careers.  At least Travolta has another bizarre style of facial hair to add to his repertoire; this iteration might top Battlefield Earth and Swordfish.

Also starring Milo VentimigliaKilling Season opens July 12th.  Hit the jump to watch the trailer.

Here’s the synopsis for Killing Season:

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.
