From Travolta W/ Love

Dec. 22, 2008by: Mike Sampson

I happened to catch PULP FICTION on TV the other day (of course it was the ridiculously edited version on AMC) and, not having seen it in a while, I was marveling at how good John Travolta was in that movie. The WILD HOGS, BE COOLs and THE PUNISHERs have almost made me forget that JT was once a force to be reckoned with.

Today we get a look at a trailer for his latest film FROM PARIS WITH LOVE. It's about a spy and an embassy employee (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) and they cross paths and etc. It's from Luc Besson so expect some fighting, some car chases and homoerotic subtext. But it does feature Travolta in a much different look than we've seen him lately:

Oh and it also features Travolta hanging out the window of a speeding car firing a bazooka. Nice.

Extra Tidbit: Pierre Morel, he of BANLIEUE 13, directs.

horrible

... Travolta hasn't been able to pull off tough since Pulp Fiction, and barely managed it then. This looks like one horrible cliche after another.

They should just change the name of this to Wanted 2, since yet again producers cast a great foreign actor and let him butcher an American accent.

OK, Travolta looks great, 'cept I'm not digging the whole bazooka thing, not that they have it, but they spent way too much time focusing on that. And what happened to the rest of the clip?

Travolta in this = potential greatness. BUT! Is it just me or does Jonathon Rhys Myers appear to have the most thankless role in the history of the universe?

I'm with buddha, that was pretty fucking sweet. I think we might get to witness another Travolta revival.

you guys are wrong, wrong, wrong

this clip rocked. welcome to paris indeed. besson is the man. travolta is lucky to be getting another shot at something cool, after the shit he's picked recently. i mean, come on...a fat chick in hairspray? seriously, wtf??

why didnt rosie odonnell just take her ideally suited part, and what made anyone think travolta should play a fat woman using a guys voice? morons.

anyhoo, this trailer rocked, trasvolta is badass in it, what a great clip.

Travolta looks awful in this. He looks like a white Marcellus Wallace, earring and all.
