[UPDATED] Wu Jing's WOLF WARRIOR Howls With New Hi-Def Posters And Two Trailers!
Martial arts action star Jacky Wu Jing's current physical condition may be worse for wear at the moment following much needed surgery in recent months, and with any luck fans will see him back on the set to do what he does most awesomely, whether in front or behind the camera in some capacity. However, fans will still be able to catch Wu on the big screen early next year overseas in at least a few more films, including his directorial debut, Wolf Warrior, alongside The Expendables 2 alums, principal actress Yu Nan and fellow martial arts superstar Scott Adkins as the main villain.
The best part about this update is that the promotional campaign is finally running viral with more character posters and two new teaser trailers, with Wu in the redemptive role of Leng Feng, a rebellious Chinese commando forced to square off with a vengeful squadron of mercs in search of the solider who killed their drug lord boss. It's a perfect set up for a story that promises some of the most explosive sequences ever shot on film, raging with fire and fisticuffs with Wu and Adkins daring to light up the screen in pure IMAX and 3D fashion this coming January, which should be a real treat for Chinese moviegoers next year.
Wolf Warrior is produced by LV Jianmin with Chris Collins, Kyle Shapiro, Kevin Lee, Sona Eyambe and fellow action star Vincent Zhao rounding out the cast. Check out all the action and accompanying ink below, and as always, stay excited!
Update [2:47pm] - Here's the latest upload via Scott Adkins's YouTube channel:
Chaos and Extraction helmer Tony Giglio is back and pretty much confirming just shy of a year after posting this teaser pic that actor and martial artist Michael Jai White does, in fact, get to fire that big ass gun. S.W.A.T.: Under Siege is the name and a likely direct-to-video a la sequel in name to its predecessors with no relation to its current TV form.
White plays the point man of this latest roster led by Sam Jaeger (American Sniper) and Adrianne Palicki (GI Joe 2: Retaliation) with a story that tells of a raid gone wrong and an international terrorist who (Matthew Marsden) descends on a S.W.A.T. compound in pursuit of White's character - marked conveniently by a Scorpion tatoo. Crave Online broke the exclusive with an official synopsis on Monday: When a D.E.A. and S.W.A.T. cartel takedown ends in a shootout, S.W.A.T. Agent Travis Hall (Jaeger) seizes a mysterious prisoner and takes him into custody. Before long, the S.W.A.T. compound is under siege by wave after wave of as…
I suppose actor Keanu Reeves's current success and busy schedule with Lionsgate's John Wick franchise makes the current myopia on his previously-announced attachment to the Rain series somewhat forgiveable. Granted of course it's something I still hope to see flourish, and while it is especially great to see such a fresh new property blooming beyond the big screen with word via Indiewire regarding The Continental.
The show aims to spin-off from the films with further exploration of characters operating within the auspices of the titular assassins' luxury hotel chain. Chad Stahelski, who directed the latest sequel John Wick: Chapter 2 is developing the project with franchise scribe Derek Kolstad and have been doing so since long before the sequel's arrival. “They’ve got a really good structure,” Stahelski said. “It’s very tied to the film [in that] it’s about the Continentals all over the world, how certain people come into that world, and what happens in relation t…
Debut director Jonathan Li's upcoming action crime thriller, , is looking better and better since March. A new teaser as well as a brand new official trailer have arrived hailing the return of actor Max Zhang to the lens in one of several films coming down the pipeline.
