ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Sylvester Stallone plays homage to classic action films in the new movie "Bullet to the Head." Stallone stars as a New Orleans hit man who teams up with a Washington D.C. cop, played by Sung Kang, to hunt down the person responsible for killing their respective partners. At the red carpet premiere in New York on Tuesday (January 29) Stallone explained how the film is different from modern day action films. "One way or another, even modern films are a throw back, it's just their re-interruption of them. But we said, let's go back to like Heinz 57, let's go back to the original formal, you know, baked beans, keep it simple. And that's what I like to do, it's what I understand. But you bring in some new blood like Jason Momoa and this fellow here and you just see what happens," he said. "Bullet to the Head" will be released in U.S. theaters on February 1.
