First look at Sylvester Stallone in Bullet To The Head

The first image from Sylvester Stallone's new action movie, Bullet To The Head , has been unveiled, and it's as gloriously ludicrous as you've come to expect from the action giant.

The muscular sexagenarian is straining his veiny arms in an effort to prevent the other dude (apparently Conan 's Jason Momoa) from splitting his head in two with an axe.

It has got us hoping for a face-off to rival the most ridiculous from Sly's action heyday.

Bullet To The Head , formerly going by the snappier title of Headshot , is directed by Walter Hill, and sees Stallone's hitman Jimmy Bobo (yes, that's actually his name) team with a cop to seek vengeance for for the murder of their partners.

The film opens on 13 April 2013.
