Scott Adkins Wants UNDISPUTED 5! There's Only One Problem...

Image
An exasperating wait, no less, for folks like myself who live in the U.S.. Still, it's nice to know that a Blu-Ray/Digital HD release of the new tournament martial arts thriller, Boyka: Undisputed, is well on its way with an August release, while it's even nicer to know that the film's star, actor and martial artist Scott Adkins wants to do a fifth.
He says so at around the 11:40 mark in his latest interview now online following his recent appearance at MCM Expo in London this week to discuss the role and the film as a whole - And not for nothing either as he continues to pound away at fans who enjoy his movies, but insist on stealing them online which will otherwise kill any chance of the film happening before 2030 if we're lucky (my words, not his).
Adkins also shares several new images from his latest, Accident Man, and some gems on Michael Cuesta's American Assassin, working with Tony Jaa on the recently-wrapped ensemble action thriller, Triple Threat, and muc…

THE VILLAINESS: Catch The Teaser Trailer For Well Go USA's Release Of The New South Korean Action Thriller

Image
Jung Byoung-Gil's new movie, The Villainess, is probably one of the most hyped Asian thrillers of the summer. Really, that's a matter of opinion but I haven't yet met a person who learned about this movie and isn't excited for it.

We have a hit director on our hands with a notable stunt background, and a worthy actress with gumption proven through her own martial arts training. Plus, if you've been paying attention to the press in wake of the film's Cannes screenings, you also know the film has itself quite the handful of reviews to back it up. Since she was a little girl, Sook-hee was raised to be a deadly assassin. She gladly accepts the chance to start a new life when South Korea’s Intelligence Agency recruits her as a sleeper agent, with the promise of complete freedom after ten years of service. But soon after taking on her new identity as Chae Yeon-soo, a 27-year-old theatre actress, she begins to realize that for someone who has lived as a killer her ent…

THE CLEANER AND THE DEADMAN Goes Ballistic In The First Trailer For Jess Bryden's Ultra-Low Budget Indie Action Thriller

Image
There's a whole lot of somethin' happening here in writer/director Jess Bryden's debut feature, The Cleaner And The Deadman. The first extended official trailer for the Hawaii-produced indie action thriller arrived on Monday and you can take away from it what you will.
It's not a lot in terms of substance, but what it does sell is a crapton of action and spectacle; explosive gun battles and fight scenery, the usual doses of CG and green-screen tomfoolery, and Netflix series Daredevil's Elektra stunt double and actress Lauren Mary Kim laying waste from start to finish. Two contract killers are hired by competing cartels to hunt down an elusive drug scientist in London. After failing to intercept the scientist as he is smuggled across the Pacific, the two hit men find themselves on the run and fighting for their own survival, in what can be described as "one of the most insane action-packed finales in independent cinema history".There's no mention of rele…

Image
In the spirit of keeping the summer movie hype going, director Patrick Hughes's new action comedy, The Hitman's Bodyguard is back to boast a little more of its promising thrills apart from its first red-band trailer last month.

The relentless bodyguard and manipulative assassin have been on the opposite end of the bullet for years and are thrown together for a wildly outrageous 24 hours. During their raucous and hilarious adventure from England to the Hague, they encounter high-speed car chases, outlandish boat escapades and a merciless Eastern European dictator [Gary Oldman] who is out for blood. Salma Hayek joins the mayhem as Jackson’s equally notorious…

Image
Taylor Sheridan is riding a wave of buzz this week. Having already garnered praise with screenwriting credits on critical hit thrillers like Denis Villeneuve's Sicario and David McKenzie's Hell Or High Water, his own directorial debut appears to be nothing short of a step up in caliber with Wind River following its screening at Sundance and January, and its amply-received Un Certain Regard screening at Cannes this month.

Shared Spider-Man Universe Adaptation, SILVER & BLACK, Pins Gina Prince-Bythewood To Direct

Image
Sony Pictures landed its latest trailers just on Wednesday landing heavily on its campaign with less than a month and a half to go before its release of Spider-Man: Homecoming starring Tom Holland. I suppose that doesn't mean Sony is dropping the ball as active as they have shown themselves for the fledgling Marvel reboot that has since brought forth its own cinematic Spiderverse into the headlines with talk of an R-rated Venom and a female-driven adventure within the same universe.

Of course latter had been stirring since 2014 and just this year it was confirmed that mercenary Silver Sable and boundless burglar Black Cat would be at the center of the film. Thus, assuring the female-driven affair of Sony's forthcoming Marvel adaptation, the aptly titled Silver & Black, comes Thursday's hiring of Gina Prince-Bythewood (Love & Basketball, The Secret Life Of Bees, Freeform's Cloak & Dagger - pilot) to direct the film. She will also re-pen Christopher Yost'…

Blow Your Nintendo Cartridges And Watch The New CASTLEVANIA Series Teaser!

Image
While it wasn't too clear what we would be in for when Adi Shankar announced there would be a Castlevania series airing on Netflix this year, we learned what we could - that it was based on the classic 1986 Konami game, that it was animated and that it was coming this year.
We also knew it was a Season 1 endeavor as it was initially stated - otherwise hopefully hinting at a second season should season one bode well enough for viewers and depending on where the studio goes in its application. Well, the first official teaser arrived on Wednesday announcing a July 7 premiere date on Netflix, and in ceremonial, nostalgic fashion.

TOP GUN 2 Puts OBLIVION Helmer Joseph Kosinski In The Pilot's Seat To Direct

Image
Having directed actor Tom Cruise for his 2013 outing in sci-fi actioner, Oblivion, some would say it would make sense to make him a candidate for the long-awaited sequel to the 1986 high-flying military drama, Top Gun. As such, it now seems to be the case according to a new exclusive report from Variety thus confirming.

The news comes just a few days after Cruise laid it all out in a single quote telling Australian talk show Sunrise that it was "definitely happening". The film itself had been in the works since around 2010 or earlier, then stifled by the subsequent suicidal tragedy of director Tony Scott who helmed the original film that propelled Cruise into Hollywood stardom as U.S. Fighter Pilot, LT. Pete Mitchell, call signed "Maverick".
Skydance CEO David Ellison and Jerry Bruckheimer, who produced the original, will produce with Cruise from a script recently penned by Justin Marks that will reportedly explore the world of drone technology and fifth generatio…
