Robert De Niro, John Travolta Team Up for Summer 'Season' Flop

Robert De Niro, John Travolta Team Up for Summer 'Season' Flop

Looks like The Big Wedding won’t be Robert De Niro’s most embarrassing moment of 2013.

That disastrous rom-com found the Oscar winner wallowing in poorly written vulgarities, the kind leagues beneath his talents.

Now, De Niro has a new clunker to call his own.

Killing Season, co-starring John Travolta, hauled in a paltry $27,000 in 12 theaters during a brief run over the weekend before its Aug. 20 home video release.

The film, directed by Mark Steven Johnson (Daredevil, Grumpy Old Men), cast De Niro as a U.S. military veteran being pursued by an old enemy (Travolta) with a major grudge.

De Niro continues to work at a fevered pace–he stars in the upcoming mob comedy The Family later this year along with the grumpy old men romp Last Vegas. Travolta, whose membership as a Scientologist in good standing hasn’t directly impacted his film career, will next be seen in the long-delayed biopic of mobster John Gotti.
