A lot of time has been spent going back and forth with the prospects of a fourth addition to the current Rush Hour trilogy. Quite frankly it's confusing, but it looks like Warner Bros. is ready to take the franchise in a new direction with the production of a new one-hour action series, according to Deadline.
You gotta love a little scenario-driven dialogue when seeing these practice fights from the indepenent online action scene. Indie action director, stuntman and FMA purveyor filmmaker Bryan Sloyer has adapted this to his formula for content creation on his own YouTube channel this week in a new video with performances by Greg Poljacik and Amy Sturdivant, and it's worth checking out for the few minutes it lasts. So, kindly do so, and subscribe to Sloyer's channel in the embed below!
Upon launching a new Reddit AMA on Tuesday, directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch shared a new poster for the upcoming release of their debut action thriller, John Wick. The film is already picking up a ton of steam among the fans with stellar reviews online following its premiere at Fantastic Fest, and its trailer launch a few weeks ago.
Just when former C.I.A. agent Bryan Mills thought his old life over, he is forced back into the field. It's a familiar plot as he's faced this twice in the first two installment of the Liam Neeson led action-packed Taken trilogy dealing with rescuing his wife and daughter from international criminals and dealing with corrupt cops on one level or another.
Universal Pictures and Legendary Pictures are currently gearing up for a multiterritorial slate of international releases for its upcoming action horror epic, Dracula Untold, and several pics, clips and featurettes are already making the rounds. The film, directed by Gary Shore, is another installation in origin storytelling which focuses on the ancient tale of the notorious Vlad The Impaler and his quest for ultimate power against an enemy threatening his people, and his family.

I can't speak fully on behalf of the musings of Malay actors and how they fare since I don't live in the country. However, you have to at least give credit where credit is due, and the most recent trailer for director Mohd Azaromi Ghozali's upcoming Malay action comedy, Kaki Kitai, certainly looks like it deserves its fair share. Sure, its layers of silliness are there, but I'm privy to believe this won't be anything to complain about.
It was back in August that Charlie Countryman helmer Fredrik Bond was slated to direct actor Gerard Butler in London Has Fallen, the forthcoming action sequel to last year's hit, Olympus Has Fallen. Since then, Bond reportedly bailed on the project over a week ago, leaving the production six weeks to find a director.
