‘Killing Season': John Travolta Sports a Freaky Beard and Hunts Robert De Niro

Thought John Travolta’s facial hair in Tony Scott’s remake of The Taking of Pelham 1, 2, 3 couldn’t be topped in terms of sheer freakiness? Think again. In Killing Season, from Mark Steven Johnson (the director of such latter-day classics as Daredevil and Ghost Rider), he rocks what could be a closely-cropped Amish beard as a former commando for the Serbian Army who’s still nursing a grudge against Uncle Sam for America’s intervention in the ’90s Bosnian War.

And who is the personification of the U.S. military-industrial-complex who Bearded Travolta decides to target? Robert De Niro! They cross paths on a backwoods hunting trip, which ends up with Bearded Travolta hunting De Niro. It’s a little bit Most Dangerous Game, a little bit The Edge. Taste that primal rage in the new trailer!

Don’t know whether to order a raktajino or a Romulan Ale from your Ferengi barman? He’s your geek! This knowledge was acquired over many years of rigorous training during his youth on the swamp planet St. Petersburg, FL. Think of him like Channing Tatum in Magic Mike but with entertainment journalism in place of the custom furniture ambitions and minus the washboard abs. A stint on the ice planet Hoth (Northwestern University) finally led to him coming to Coruscant (New York City), where he helps share his knowledge with you all. He will desperately try to avoid puns like, "Set phasers for phun!"
