Killing Season: As long as there remain recognizable but aging movie stars who you have to look up on IMDB before confirming that no, they haven't really appeared onscreen together, Millennium Entertainment will be there to trick them into making a mid-budget C-movie that gets a cursory theatrical release. This month, it's John Travolta and Robert De Niro in The Killing Season, which did actually screen for press in Manhattan, but on the same night as Grown Ups 2 and I'm further along in my complete critical history of Sandler than my complete critical history of indirect-to-DVD C-movies starring former A-listers, so I had to miss it. I take solace in the fact that there will probably be another one of these next month, starring, oh, let's say Kevin Costner and Harrison Ford, or Ashley Judd and Bruce Willis.
