"From Paris with Love" follows Jonathan Rhys-Meyers' James Reese, a low-ranking intelligence operative working in the office of the U.S. Ambassador in France, who is partnered with John Travolta's Charlie Wax, a high-ranking U.S. agent who's been sent to Paris to stop a terrorist attack. This action flick is scheduled to hit U.S. theaters on February 5.
