Eventually, the popular opinion on zombies is going to shift and people are going to stop watching 'The Walking Dead' and buying zombie-themed video games, but that day is not today. People still love zombies and if the opening weekend is any indication, they love 'Warm Bodies.'
Bullet to the Head
In 1982, Walter Hill directed '48 Hrs.,' with Nick Nolte as a loose cannon cop and Eddie Murphy as a fast-talking criminal. The oil-and-water chemistry worked, the movie was a hit, and an entire genre -- the buddy cop movie -- was born. Hill has had a long a varied career in Hollywood, directing tough, lean action movies and Westerns and producing the 'Alien' franchise, but '48 Hrs.' and the myriad imitators it birthed will always be his biggest legacy. That fact alone makes his new movie, 'Bullet to the Head,' interesting, since it's Hill imitating himself, with his first return to the genre since 1990's 'Another 48 Hrs.' The mixed results probably won't inspire a resurgence of buddy cop movies, but they're not terrible either, with enough Walter Hill flair to make some moments quite memorable, even if the movie as a whole has its problems.
Hypothetical question for yah: in a fight between action star Sylvester Stallone, and the guy who played 'Conan the Barbarian' and King of the Dothraki in 'Game of Thrones,' who would win? We might have an answer to this not-so-age-old question in the first clip from 'Bullet to the Head.'
The latest poster for Walter Hill's 'Bullet to the Head,' starring Sylvester Stallone, is sticking with the first poster's tagline, "Revenge Never Gets Old." Guess it still fits. However, it has added a few more faces to liven things up.
Sylvester Stallone is still flexing those ridiculous muscles of his in 'Bullet to the Head,' an action thriller directed by action vet Walter Hill, and the first poster for the 2013 release has just exploded online! Give it a look after the break!
Despite its troubled production, we can't help but remain excited for 'Bullet to the Head', the first collaboration between legendary action star Sylvester Stallone and the equally legendary (at least among serious film buffs) Walter Hill, director of 'The Warriors' and '48 Hours.' The new trailer doesn't do much to dampen our enthusiasm.
Though it's not due until February 1, 2013, we're pumped for the return of Walter Hill with 'Bullet to the Head.' The film stars Sylvester Stallone, Sung Kang and Jason Mamoa in - what looks to be - a no-nonsense action movie. It's been a while since we've had one of those that wasn't PG-13. Now there's a UK trailer.
We were wondering what happened to 'Bullet to the Head' the Walter Hill-directed, Sylvester Stallone-starring picture when it got bumped from April 2012 to February 2013 (a common story this year). But now there's a trailer, and now we're excited again.
Walter Hill's return to the big screen directing Sylvester Stallone in 'Bullet to the Head' was once scheduled for April 2012. Obviously, that didn't happen, but it may explain why it's move to February 1, 2013 sounds bad. The film was briefly set for November, though there are a couple of good reasons for the move.
