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.

Check out the first trailer for Killing Season below (via Apple):

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.

    This looks so much worse than I thought it’d be.

    That looks exceptionally terrible. And that may be one of the worst Russian accents I’ve EVER heard.
    “You want war? Come and get it.”

      It’s not a Russian accent, so don’t hold that against it.

      • Adam Michael Hylton

        Either way, it just comes off as forced, like you said in your comment below, it isn’t their natural voice. I can take people doing accents, British people talk like American’s all the time, but Americans can’t rock another cultures’ accent that well. I can throw on an accent, but I wouldn’t expect to get paid for it.

        Outside of that, this movie just looks bad.

    I hope travolta gets back into action films but this doesn’t look the film to do it in.

  • evinrude

    So much of the time when people pick on an actor for the way they
    perform an accent,it’s because we know the sound of their natural voice
    so well that we can’t get over the disconnect,so we slap them down for
    even trying. I have worked side-by-side with an Eastern-Slav for a year,
    and Travolta sounds spot-on to me.

    Besides,it’s lame to take potshots at Travolta when the jokes are so easy.None of the ridiculous and awkward things that he does with himself can take away from the
    talent he’s got.

    this is straight to video right? right?!

  • The Observer

    They both need to fire their agents…

  • lordjim

    given the director i´m not expecting much, but this looks actually good, and de niro vs travolta (the accent is actually spot on) should make an entertaining flic, i don´t get the hate for this, at least this looks to be an old fashioned action movie with real actors and not some cgi bullshit cartoon with robots etc.

    • RiddleThemThis

      I’m glad to see not everyone is hating on this film. While I was hoping for more, I do think this looks decent. This movie had a lot more promise when John McTiernan was set to direct, but I’ll give it a chance either way.

    I haven’t watched the trailer but I just know I’m not interested. De Niro is better than this.

  • keegan

  • Gerard Kennelly

    deniro was the actor who used to blow us away.. now we have PSH and DDL

    I saw the trailer on iTunes the other day. All I could say was omfg! This movie will never get released into he theaters. Straight to fucking video. De Niro and Travolta have become hacks. And what’s up with that hair style on Robert? Lol! Ain’t no man his age got hair like that. One direction members, yeah but a 67 year old? Ain’t nobody got time for that.

  • Jim

    Considering how much of a hack Mark Steven Johnson is, I’m not really surprised.
