From Paris With Love: Travolta Goes Balder, More Ridiculous


Lets face it, John Travolta has done some really stupid movies in his day. And to his credit, no matter how ridiculous the character he generally gives himself the opportunity to pull it off without looking like a complete moron (save for that little blunder known as Battlefield Earth). But in the trailer below, which is for his upcoming movie From Paris With Love, Travolta takes the idiocy to a whole new level. He stars alongside The Tudors’ Jonathan Rhys Meyers as rogue American spy who teams up with a more conservative agent on a high risk mission in and around Paris, France. From director Pierre Morel, who directed the hit actioner District B13 and the upcoming spy thriller Taken, this movie has all kinds of potential. It was also written by French action dealer Luc Besson, who you may remember as the man who birthed the Transporter series. Though, even all of that potential seems wasted when one considers the trailer below. Check it out, hopefully you’ll see what I mean.

From Paris with Love is scheduled to hit theaters on December 17, 2009. The photo above comes to us from our friends at TheBadandUgly. Hat tip on the trailer below goes to Christopher M.

What do you think of the first trailer for From Paris with Love?
