Director Michael Neal's latest indie feature-length webseries presents a something that could bode well for YA audiences that don't mind something a little different compared to its Hollywood counterparts. Swords Of Insurgency is the name of the project, set in a post-apocalyptic world where the remainder of mankind lives mostly in the dark ages and thrives primarily on one's own fighting skills to survive.
Well, if there's one thing we can all look forward to in 2015, it's another awesome action movie, and for fans of leading man Jean-Claude Van Damme, that very day will come upon the release of his third stint with 6 Bullets and Assassination Games helmer, director Ernie Barbarash in the new thriller, Pound Of Flesh. This time, Van Damme is taking no prisoners as an ex-military man, waking up one morning in a bloody ice bath with a missing kidney devoted to his dying niece, infiltrating China's seedy underbelly to retrive it before it is sold to the highest bidder.

As with every SuperBowl Sunday, this weekend is going to be a big opportunity for trailers to make their way for an audience. Director Robert Schwentke's The Divergent Series: Insurgent is one of those films now currently amidst an epic campaign laden with an array of standard and animated posters and portraits hosting much of the film's sprawling cast led by returning actress Shailene Woodley and actor Theo James.
2014 was an immensely great year for actor Chris Pratt, and things are about to get even better. The actor is currently on par as a person of interest to reprise the role of Indiana Jones for a new feature film on top of returning to portray his winning role in director James Gunn's forthcoming Marvel sequel, Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 and possibly getting a starring role in The Magnificent Seven remake alongside The Equalizer duo, helmer Anton Fuqua and actor Denzel Washington.
More than three decades after launching a cult phenomenon to the world of sci-fi forever, the Terminator franchise is rebooting this summer for the first of a fresh new trilogy, Terminator: Genisys. The film featuring a brand new slate of actors filling in key roles from the previous films, with Jason Clarke, Emilia Clarke and Jai Courtney starring alongside actor Arnold Schwarzenegger whose presence aims to further validates the new trilogy. Check out the new poster!

Fans of cinematic badass, actor and action star Jason Statham will find themselves in good company this year with the forthcoming release of Spy and Furious 7 this Summer and Spring. However, his first step back on the big screen will arrive shortly in the U.S. with the revisit to a Burt Renyolds cult classic, now in the form of Wild Card which sees our hero, a gambling addict deep in the thick of the Las Vegas criminal underbelly and desperate to fight his way while out forced to deal with an array of thugs just waiting to be tossed about!
There aren't a lot of James Bond-inspired fan shorts available online that I know of, and believe me, I'll start looking. However, leave it to filmmaker Colin Emerson to tap into the fanbase now currently writhing in anticipation for the 24th feature film in the franchise, Spectre since its announcement at the top of the year. He's got a new short coming out between now and next week titled Sapphire, and its got the coolest teaser poster in the world right now...so cool I couldn't NOT write about it.

Just heading into the last leg of its current run at Sundance is the much-hyped BMX-charged fantasy thrill-ride from Canada-New Zealad film collective, R.K.S.S., Turbo Kid. A few clips have already made their way online but we now have an official teaser as of a few days ago, and it's every bit of nostalgic fun you could probably imagine.
Do you love Arnold Schwarzenegger? Well, apparently so does the WWE, because he's getting a place in history as a WWE Hall Of Famer in a couple of months! The company made it official just a few days ago in the following announcement, so this is probably a great year for you if you're a fan of wrestling.
ONCE UPON A TIME IN BERLIN: German Martial Arts Film Group, Reel Deal Action, Sets Their 2015 Feature Debut
At any other point in time before the new millennium, you may have been right in simply assuming that the martial arts action genre wouldn't have had much fervor with the internet. Of course, time proved quite the opposite with a vast number of independent groups sprouting online for a community that has evidently gone global. Germany, for one, has surely seen its share of that effect with its own native talents, namely folks like Can Aydin, Phong Giang and award-winning stunt performer Cha-Lee Yoon - just three of the principle stuntmen combining years of experience to form their own team, Reel Deal Action, as of just several years ago.

UPDATE (1/28/15): It seems Moussi removed his Facebook post within the last several hours since the original article was published, and reposted a few more times later stating he was not in the running to play the character. We'll keep you posted.
