From Paris With Love - Close Up

Amongst all the films that get thrown at us every year it’s hard to remember who’s coming out with what and when. Case and point, did it slip anyone elses mind that John Travolta and Jonathan Rhys-Meyers‘ film, From Paris With Love was still a pending release? Apparently it’s still going strong and over at CraveOnline, they’ve got two new posters from the film that features both actors doing their best bad ass imitations.

From Paris With Love is directed by Pierre Morel and centers on a low-ranking intelligence operative (Meyers) working in the office of the U.S. Ambassador in France takes on more than he bargained for when he partners with a wisecracking, fast-shooting, high-ranking U.S. agent (Travolta) who’s been sent to Paris to stop a terrorist attack.

The plot sounds like the outline to any and every buddy cop movie from the 1980′s, but somehow this movie thinks it can be different. It really sucks how Jonathan Rhys Meyers keeps getting offered these types of roles, he’s so much better than this. He is ridiculously talented, tune in to an episode of The Tudors and you’ll see what I mean. As for Travolta, apparently this movie was filmed around the same time as The Taking of Pelham 123. Here’s to hoping it doesn’t share the same fate.

From Paris With Love is scheduled to hit theaters on February 5th, 2010
