Bad Ass Travolta and the New Director of Dune

Here's a new trailer for Pierre Morel's From Paris with Love, due out in the first week of February. It strikes a very similar tone to Morel's last flick, Taken, though -- as much as I hate to write this -- bad-ass Travolta slightly trumps bad-ass Liam Neeson for me. Put Travolta in a goatee, and the devil on my shoulder feels funny in his tingly bits. Put him in a family comedy, and that goddamn devil on my shoulder pukes down my shirt.

Otherwise, it looks like a mostly generic action-flick, but I'm really showing it here for one reason only. Watch 65 seconds of From Paris with Love, and ask yourself: Is this the guy we really want directing the Dune remake? Is flashy competence really the best we can do?
