Everyone's Ready To Brawl In The First Official Poster For 3: ALIF LAM MIM
Comic 8 franchise director Anggy Umbara has a new film on the horizon followng its ceremonious announcement in January and subsequent production as of February. The title, 3: Alif Nam Mim bears a distinct underlying reference to the first three letters of the Quran which may by much more decipherable to those knowledgeable of it, but the film it adheres to definitely looks like it will be going to be an exciting martial arts film in some capacity.
The next several days of waiting should grant us a trailer by then. Fow now though, we finally have our premiere look at the cast in the first official poster following earlier teaser one-sheets unveiled in tha past year. Actors Cornelio Sunny, Abimanya Aryasatya and Agus Kuncoro lead the cast which, and much to the favor of martial arts fans, also includes actress Prisia Nasution and The Raid franchise co-stars, actors Donny Alamsyah and Cecep Arif Rahman - the latter whose career prospects have expanded nicely in the past year as well.
We're about learn much more on this one in the days ahead, but do check out the latest poster in the album below and watch this space!
Much has happened this year for actor and martial artist Jose Manuel. Interviewing him back in April was something of a milestone achievement, and no less for a rising star who himself has contributed years of sharpening talent and unmitigated resolve toward growing into the headlining action star he strives to be to date since making history in 2012 with Puerto Rican martial arts action feature, El Testigo (The Witness).
His recent 'Best' wins for the Short Film Competition and Blood Sweat And Bones categories at the Urban Action Showcase and Expo on November 10 are also doing plusses for him this month. Retribution won the latter of the two and you can currently catch that one via YouTube. The other, Uncompromised, still stands plenty to gain with Manuel taking the lead next year following his current endeavors in Nepal.
For this, we bring you The Man From Kathmandu, hailing from Nakim Uddin - head of Nepal's largest theatrical exhibitor, QFX Cinemas, and marking anothe…
I was a little more keen on taking this week off given the forthcoming holiday, but I was already on par for another installment of the Hit List so I figured "why not?"...
Alas, we've arrived to another spiffy new around of demo reels and action gems to help warm you up.

This week is an especially ceremonial time for folks freshly off of this month's Urban Action Showcase & Expo fallout. Angel Vasquez hails as yet another fledgling talent from Puerto Rico with plenty of time spent collaborating under fellow rising star Jose Manuel's North Compass banner. Thus, Vasquez is poised to present his own project to the ma…
Word has it that actor Lin Gengxin is a possible front runner to lead famed Hong Kong director Tsui Hark's newly confirmed adaptation of classic literary, Return Of The Condor Heroes. The story is inspired by Jin Yong's 1959 publication, the second installation of the Condor Trilogy which began in 1957 and has seen numerous film and TV adaptations, as well as its expansion into books and video games.
Hark reportedly aims to adapt the book into a trilogy of its own while fans are expecting to hear of Lin's attachment as Yang Guo, whose taboo romance with his sifu, martial arts master Little Dragon Girl, and their adventures in the martial arts world is central to the story. Lin has worked with Hark on several occassions with credits together including Young Detective Dee: Rise Of the Sea Dragon (2013), The Taking of Tiger Mountain (2014), Derek Yee's Sword Master (2016) which Hark produced, and this year's sequel hit, Journey to the West: The Demons Strike Back whi…
