Katniss Leads The Fight In The Explosive New Kickstarter Promo For THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY Fan Film

The next theatrical installation to the live action rendition of YA author Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games series, Mockingjay, is not yet due until this November. But that hasn't stopped actress and producer Kristen Brancaccio from making her own concerted effort in delivering likely one of the most ambitious, tasteful and spectacular independent fan films based on said franchise. And with the test footage now being showcased in today's newly launched Kickstarter platform, I have no shame in using such adjectives whatsoever.

With Machinima set to deliver the upcoming first season of Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist, series creators, actor/writer Christian Howard and actor/writer/director Joey Ansah have been busy keeping the new series in the spotlight before it is finally released in May.

Two New Featurettes For X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

Straight and to the point: I'm pretty sure that events within the last twelve hours or so may not be dimming away the serious, bitter reality that director Bryan Singer is facing right now with a pending lawsuit regarding an alleged incident in 1999. As such, with regard to the fate of X-Men: Apocalypse, indeed, the future is left unwritten.

Watch A New B-Roll Featurette For THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2!

It's official, folks. The award for waaaay too many trailers and TV spots has to go to director Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2. I have to say, it's been an adventure trying to keep up with the promotional campaign for this one, and I don't even think I was able to share the latest official trailer for it. So, I'm more at ease knowing that this film is on its last legs of promotion after just debuting in Europe before its North American release on May 2.

Suit Up And Watch The New Trailer For Yuichi Fukuda's JOSHI ZU

Set to release domestically on June 7 is Hentai Kamen and Kids Police helmer Yuichi Fukuda's latest poke at Tokusatsu parody in the new film, Joshi Zu, and following a first teaser introduced back in February, we now have a full trailer which you can look at below the synopsis. While I'm not completely immersed in the world of Tokusatsu as much as I would like to be, I get it though. I'm quite charmed and I would pay to see this. And you would too...yes, you would.

Patrick Hughes Reveals His Concepts For THE RAID Remake

Patrick Hughes takes a center seat with the action veteran cast of The Expendables 3 - C/W from T/L: Terry Crews, Wesley Snipes, Jason Statham, Randy Couture, Patrick Hughes, Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren

Today's news is all the buzz with the latest exclusive reports from several sites on last year's set visits of The Expendables 3, which action choreographer J.J. Perry has coined as the biggest action movie he has done throughout his entire career. "...this is like if you took 'Expendables' one and 'Expendables' two and put it in a blender and poured a bottle of hot sauce on it," Perry says. "...that's what we're doing right now, and we're in it right now, and I'm loving every minute of it.".

Lots Of BTS Footage, Posters & TV Spot For BRICK MANSIONS

Jackie Chan's DRAGON BLADE Kicks Off Filming With A New Logo

Jackie Chan celebrates his 60th birthday at the Peace, Love & Happiness Concert in Beijing on April 6

If you've been living the life of world-renowned film superstar Jackie Chan, chances are you had one hell of a star-studded 60th birthday celebration this year. You may have even had a limited edition Lamborghini unveiled in your honor or even commissioned a Malayisian artist by the name of Hong Yi (a.k.a. Red) create a life-sized portrait of the actor made of recyclable chopsticks, as so shows in the video below.

The Final Trailer For X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Is Here

Following a new clip from director Bryan Singer's forthcoming film, X-Men: Days Of Future Past, fans were granted a viewing of the final trailer for the film ahead of its May 23 North American theatrical release. I have to say, it's almost daunting that it's been up to fourteen years since Singer launched this amazing franchise, ultimately putting Aussie lead actor Hugh Jackman on the Hollywood map. And with the actor appearing in all-six films in the franchise thusfar with at least two more possible films on the way, I'm pretty sure Jackman wears that badge proudly.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: TWS EXCLUSIVE - Interview With Aaron Toney And James Young

Captain America: The Winter Soldier was one of the most memorable filmgoing experiences I have ever had. It also comes with a distinct appreciation I grew over the years for the online independent action film scene which started making waves in the late 90's and early 2000's, with teams like Zero Gravity, Reel Kick, Thousand Pounds Action Company and many others.
