Watanabe Speaks Out On The Live-Action COWBOY BEBOP Movie That Still Isn't

Much like Akira and Ghost In The Shell at the time, earlier efforts seemed almost boundless for 20th Century Fox's hopes for a feature-length live-action adaptation of Watanabe Shinichiro's 1998 animated series, Cowboy Bebop, based on the preceding manga publication from Kadokawa and Tokyopop a year earlier from author Cain Kuga. However, it has been over six years since veteran producer Erwin Stoff made it publicly known he was working to help make this possible, and even with the attachment of Watanabe as one of the film's associate producers close to the original material along with animation company, Sunrise Inc., it appears progress has been nothing short of languishing.

Filmmaker Michael Mann has a true knack for extrapolating raw, visual grit to his style of storytelling.

Could Taiwanese Actioner, A CHOO Sneeze Its Way To Cinemas Next Year?


Directors Kevin Ko and Peter Tsi's latest film definitely serves as a 'couples' movie while catering just a bit to the action and superhero genre fans as of late, although uncertainty looms regarding its release. Produced by Enlight Media and Star Ritz Productions Co. Ltd., the new film, A Choo, is based on the best-selling work of author Giddeons Ko and stars lead actor Kai Ko, who recently fell ill to one in a handful of drug-related scandals that plagued the industry in China and Taiwan.

The Road To Fast And Furious 7 Starts Today!

Sunday's news has probably been the biggest news in film in a long time - even bigger if you're a fan of  Universal Pictures' The Fast And The Furious frachise.

A Case For Better Action Movies: JOHN WICK (2014)


SYNOPSIS:
An ex-hitman comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that took everything from him. With New York City as his bullet-riddled playground, "John Wick" (Keanu Reeves) is a fresh and stylized take on the "assassin genre." 
REVIEW:

I particularly share the opinion that the folks over at stunt training facility 87 Eleven Action Design are dog lovers. And I'm drawn to this possibility in noticing a bit of a pattern having caught one of their most recent shortfilms, Fetch, directed by action veteran and and stuntman Daniel Bernhardt, which plays off quite nicely as one way of telling a story that can generally relate to people. I mean, you have to be pretty soulless to not at least hold a special place inside for canines; I'm a dog lover myself, biased and shameless so... sorry not sorry. Alas, we are brought into the world of former hitman John Wick, four years into trying to turn over a new leaf only to have his world crumbling down around him. And of course, with Wick being the man he is, you can imagine what happens next.

Malaysian Parkour Thriller, RENTAP, Flies High In A New Trailer!

Malaysia has proven to have its fair share of action films, and not a lot of them get the publicity they deserve. Hopefully one day that will change as directors continue to flourish, like that of Simon Long whose latest energetic freerunning flick, Rentap, certainly appears to have all the right moves to entertain its proper audience.

Screener Review: SONS OF LIBERTY (2013)


SYNOPSIS:
Special Agent Tom Hardy must assemble an elite team of scientists and soldiers to prevent the construction of a weapon so deadly a quarter of the US would have to be abandoned for decades. As the team members of the top secret unit, know as the SOL, struggle to find the balance between duty and their personal lives, an outside threat emerges. A serial killer is torturing women, leaving their bodies a mangled mess of scars and symbols. Special Agents Tom Hardy and Dr. Jan Baker are drawn into the game of cat and mouse as the remaining scientists and soldiers race to develop a solution to locate incoming stolen nuclear materials without alerting their enemies.

REVIEW:

Writer, producer and director Drew Hall's 2013 action thriller, Sons Of Liberty has some bit of flare to it. However, I honestly found myself waiting for it to end sooner with every passing minute, and as much as I am akin to writing positive reviews about movies, sadly this won't be the case.

Watch The Final Trailer For KUNG FU JUNGLE!


As far as movie promotion goes, the average Donnie Yen film has that area covered tenfold.

Screener Review: REDEEMER (2014)


SYNOPSIS:
Former hitman Nicky Pardo (Zaror) has made a deal with God. Pardo will begin every day by holding a gun to his own head and pulling the trigger. And every day he does not die he will take it as a sign that he is meant to continue hunting down the men he used to work for.

REVIEW:

By no means are your options limited here, particularly if you are a fan of the martial arts genre and always looking forward to something great to see. This was a lesson learned in my own evolution as a follower of these films while growing up, and as time passed, more and more talent has continued to emerge and drawing the attention of fans almost everywhere. Obviously this couldn't be possible without the evolution of the internet, a tool that generally removes almost all boundaries so people can share a piece of themselves with the world. Actor and martial artist Marko Zaror is one of those people, hailing all the way from Santiago, Chile with a breakout lead role in the first Chilean martial arts action film, Kiltro in 2006. The film would be his first pairing with then-debut director Ernesto Díaz Espinoza, and eight years later with three under their belt, the two have come back once again with a vengeance for their newest hit, Redeemer.

Live-Action DEAD RISING Movie Casts Rob Riggle To Lead


It was probably a matter of time before post-apocalyptic zombie game would follow in the footsteps of its predecessors toward cinema territory Granted, previous results like those stemming from that of the Resident Evil franchise don't fare critically as well despite its commercial success, although maybe something different or better will come along to help provide some optimism.

Z-Team Films' DIE FIGHTING Goes On Demand This November!
