Kiai-Kick Films Presents The Official Poster And Site Of The New Mini Webseries, CORNERED
Donald Brooks and Bobby Hernandez in the upcoming new series, CORNERED
The online independent action community is poised to add yet another to the list of entertaining gems viewable on the web this year. Dallas Fort Worth native and Kiai-Kick.com founder, Austin-based indie filmmaker Michael S. Moore has launched the official website for his thrilling new webseries, Cornered, and while no stranger to martial arts action, the latest bit of teaser footage he unveiled earlier this month offers something promising to look forward to ahead of its release.
Lead actor, martial artist and stuntman Donald Brooks headlines the story which forsees a cop's mission to fight his way through a gauntlet of deadly fighters to retrieve a briefcase and save the life of a woman from captivity. Interesting, as whatever is in that briefcase must be worth the extra effort, especially in a project themed with homages to a handful of the biggest names in recent martial arts movie history, and not for nothing either with actor and fight choreographer Aaron D. Alexander on hand to deliver the stylish coordination for a cast of this caliber.
At any rate, the series is also gracing hopeful fans with a fresh new poster which you can check out below.
Cornered will debut in four parts between episodes as long as seven-to-ten minutes. Brooks is joined by Kerry Ramsay, Sharmita Bhattacharya and Lindsey Lemke, with Bobby Hernandez, Rachel Wiese, Chris Cude, Geronimo Son, Yuki Ishiguro and Ron Leblanc rounding out the cast. Kindly pay a visit to the official Facebook page for the series to get a good footing of the content and further info that will be made available in the coming weeks!
An exasperating wait, no less, for folks like myself who live in the U.S.. Still, it's nice to know that a Blu-Ray/Digital HD release of the new tournament martial arts thriller, Boyka: Undisputed, is well on its way with an August release, while it's even nicer to know that the film's star, actor and martial artist Scott Adkins wants to do a fifth.
He says so at around the 11:40 mark in his latest interview now online following his recent appearance at MCM Expo in London this week to discuss the role and the film as a whole - And not for nothing either as he continues to pound away at fans who enjoy his movies, but insist on stealing them online which will otherwise kill any chance of the film happening before 2030 if we're lucky (my words, not his).
Adkins also shares several new images from his latest, Accident Man, and some gems on Michael Cuesta's American Assassin, working with Tony Jaa on the recently-wrapped ensemble action thriller, Triple Threat, and muc…
Production I.G.'s longstanding Blood saga has been a mainstay in manga and on film and TV, save for Chris Nahon's own less-than-stellar effort nearly a decade ago. Since then, the animated franchise has seen its own evolution despite bearing some controversy which forbade it in both Japan and even China despite positive reviews.
That legacy extends further to Blood-C: The Last Dark, as its 2015 live-action stageplay, Blood-C: The Last Mind from director Shutaro Oku who has since moved on to a live-action setting for the upcoming spin-off, Asura Girl: Blood-C from Production I.G. and all-female animation group, CLAMP. Fujisaki Junichi, whose shared credits with the entirety of the Blood franchise date back to the 2000 Playstation game, wrote the script which will expand on the principal villain, Fumito, from the 2011 Blood-C anime now in a prequel setting. The story takes place in prewar-period Japan under the military government. The bloody battle between the tyrannical Specia…
