Check This Out: Pierre Morel's From Paris with Love Poster
Of all the big things to talk about tonight (like Avatar or Transformers 2), I don't expect that many people to care about a little action movie from France. But then let me remind you that this is the next movie from the same guy who brought us Taken - Pierre Morel. From Paris with Love stars John Travolta and Jonathan Rhys Meyers as "partners." Well, not exactly. Travolta plays a crazy American spy looking to stop a terrorist attack in Paris, while Rhys Meyers plays a young employee in the office of the US Ambassador who meets up with him. That's the only intro you need. Check out the first teaser poster from IGN below.
We actually ran an early low quality promo trailer for this late last year. You might as well check out that footage if you're interested in this movie at all - it shows John Travolta with a big ass rocket launcher.
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 previosuly. The screenplay was co-written by Luc Besson (Fifth Element, Angel-A, Taken) and Adi Hasak (Shadow Conspiracy). This was completely filmed in France in late 2008 and was only picked up by Lionsgate for US distribution earlier this year. From Paris with Love is already set to hit theaters everywhere on February 19th, 2010 early next year.

I love it! This really works well for the actual permise of the film. Its good to break away from Avatar, The Last Airbender and Transformers 2, So there is at least one person who clicked this post! AND IT WAS WORTH IT!!!!!!!!

Most of the Taken crew are onboard, so I shall happily follow. It's been a while since Travolta did anything truly special, but Morel and Besson worked Neeson into a stunning anti-hero. It could be good. And this poster trumps the four from the expo. Hands down.

As cool as the poster looks at the moment I'm not interested, since Taken could have BEEN SO MUCH better, if it wasn't for a huge casting mistake (not Neeson) and some diabolical directorial decisions.

blackpool tower ray gun! Actually looks and sounds very James Bondish... In fact, let Pierre Morrell run with the next James Bond movie...and let Daniel Craig finally ascend to the Steve Mcqueen level of cool.

@4 Would your casting problem be with Maggie grace as the daughter, if so I agree 100% Also taken needed more blood even with its badassery.
