Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
If ever Robert De Niro had a recent excuse to bust out, “You talkin’ to me?” The new trailer for director Mark Steven Johnson’s Killing Season would be it.
De Niro stars in the thriller as Benjamin Ford, a military veteran on a retreat in the Appalachian Mountains, trying to forget his days in the Bosnian War. In walks a European man with a sweet chin-strap beard named Emil Kovac (played by … John Travolta?), who strikes up a friendship with Ford … until it’s revealed that Emil is actually a Serbian soldier seeking vengeance against Ford. What follows is something akin to The Most Dangerous Game, except with Travolta sporting a ridiculous accent and equally ridiculous facial hair.
In other words, looks like the best worst movie of the summer. It’s coming on July 12. Watch the trailer below.
