Pulp Fiction stars and fellow Hollywood icons Bruce Willis and John Travolta reunite in the newly released trailer for the action outing, Paradise City. Released courtesy of Saban Films, Paradise City finds Willis and Travolta doing what fans love, wielding guns and exchanging in witty dialogue, with the former starring as a bounty hunter with the latter starring as a ruthless power broker. Check out the trailer for Paradise City below.
“When bounty hunter Ian Swan (Willis) is shot and presumed dead after disappearing in Maui waters, Swan’s son Ryan (Jenner), his ex-partner (Dorff) and a local detective (Lundberg) set out to find his killers,” the official synopsis for Paradise City reads. “After being threatened by a ruthless power broker (Travolta), it appears Ryan and his team are out of options,” the synopsis adds, “until an excursion to the closely guarded island community of Paradise City unites them with an unforeseen ally.”
MOVIEWEB VIDEO OF THE DAY
So, it’s Bruce Willis versus John Travolta then, with the pair having starred together in the likes of Pulp Fiction back in 1994, and Look Who’s Talking, and its sequel Look Who’s Talking Too in 1989 and 1990, respectively.
“Are you dangerous?” Travolta’s asks Willis in the footage. “Not to my friends,” Willis replies. “Well, that’s too bad, because I have enough friends,” says Travolta coldly in response. Expect bullets, threats, and quips to fly. Of course, the last time that Willis and Travolta came face-to-face, it was Willis who emerged the victor. Time will tell who comes out best from Paradise City.
Directed by Chuck Russell (The Mask, Eraser, I Am Wrath) and written by Corey Large and Edward John Drake, Paradise City stars the likes of Praya Lundberg, Corey Large, Stephen Dorff, Blake Jenner, and Oliver Trevena alongside Willis and Travolta.
Bruce Willis Recently Stepped Away from Acting
Sadly, action movie superstar Bruce Willis recently stepped away from acting following a diagnosis of aphasia, which causes difficulties with both language and speech. The eldest daughter of actor Bruce Willis and actress Demi Moore, Rumer Willis, has since taken to social media to provide fans of the legendary actor with an update.
“To Bruce’s amazing supporters, as a family we wanted to share that our beloved Bruce has been experiencing some health issues and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is impacting his cognitive abilities,” she said in a social media post back in March. “As a result of this and with much consideration Bruce is stepping away from the career that has meant so much to him. This is a really challenging time for our family and we are so appreciative of your continued love, compassion and support. We are moving through this as a strong family unit, and wanted to bring his fans in because we know how much he means to you, as you do to him. As Bruce always says, “Live it up” and together we plan to do just that.”
Paradise City is scheduled to be released on November 11, 2022, by Saban Films. Paradise City is just one of several Bruce Willis-led movies due to be released this year, including Die Like Lovers, Detective Knight: Rogue, and Devil’s Knight.
