Worth Watching - Dec 23: Pierre Morel's From Paris with Love Trailer
From Pierre Morel, director of District B13 and the upcoming Taken, comes his next feature film, titled From Paris with Love. John Travolta stars as an American spy who hooks up with a young embassy employee in Paris. Jonathan Rhys Meyers plays Travolta's new partner and hottie Amber Rose Revah stars as the love interest. From Paris with Love is yet another project produced and co-written by Luc Besson, just like the Transporter trilogy, District B13 and Taken. This is a rough trailer from French television, so bear with us, as it at least gives us an idea of what to expect, including Travolta's careless attitude.
Watch the trailer for Pierre Morel's From Paris with Love:
From Paris with Love is directed by French filmmaker Pierre Morel, an ex-director of photography and cameraman who went on to direct both District B13 and Taken. The screenplay was co-written by Luc Besson (Fifth Element, Angel-A, Taken) and Adi Hasak (Shadow Conspiracy). Apparently From Paris with Love is just recently finished filming in France. It doesn't have a US distributor yet or any immediate release plans, so stay tuned for more information. Hopefully this will show up somewhere soon!

I bet thats the 1st time a Volvo has been shot by a rocket in a film (bad cg or not)

Looks really terrible... it might be the bad quality or the terrible voice over... but I dunno I will wait to see an actual american trailer before I jump to conclusions.

I'll watch it, not because it looks good, but because Taken was amazing. Lets see if the duo of Morel and Besson can make magic again!

Seen B13 and Taken. Both Excellent movies. This trailer didn't do much for me but it's only a teaser so i'll wait for the full length. By the way, if Taken ever comes out in America I highly suggest seeing it. I also heard Morel is working on a District B14.

Why is Travolta still working? Ever since Pulp Fiction it's been straight downhill.

i think the buddy genre in which one is straight laced and serious and the other is a wreckless, "streetwise" agent is getting old. but the action looks promising. if story is good this could be ok.

I think this movie would do better as an SNL skit
Nick Sears on Dec 23, 2008
Are you kidding? This looks like a parody of every lame buddy-cop action movie since Lethal Weapon. Any time Travolta puts on make-up to look less like himself, you know he's hiding from an awful script. He has tells like a first time poker player. This movie is going to tank.

Yea I gotta admit, I love Besson's work, but this doesn't look very good at all...terrible CGI and formalistic sarcasm before anything climactic.

It's Triple X! What the fuck

John Travolta needs to stop trying to play cool actors and do something he hasn't done yet; play a character that matches his age.

WTF... SHMACK... I think I just got hit in the face with a bunch of craptastic footage and stupid dialogue

i'm down with the old school, buddy cop movies. its been a while. i am not counting rush hour 3 as a buddy cop film

So Travolta is doing a corny imitation of Denzel Washington from training day and a great young actor Rhys Meyers is reduced to a useless sidekick with all the typical sidekick dialogue. And this is worth watching...why?

I looked at the picture and said to myself, "Now that's one wierd looking familiar face." And then I had to begin reading the article to find out it was John Travolta. That dude has one strange set of features. Anyway, this trailer makes the movie look like a pile of dog crap, but I liked District B13 and the trailer for Taken, so, who knows.
JL on Dec 23, 2008
stupid as fuck and travolta looks ridiculous as a baldy his voice doesnt match it
