FIVE A DAY: Ring In The New Year With These Heavy Hitters!
Hung Yan Yan directs the action which sets the stage for Johnston in the role of Jane, traveler in Japan who finds herself recruited as a prospect for the competitive all-female underworld of illegal fighting. You can guarantee there's more to the story here with a roster of talented actresses front and center, while this also marks a new beginning for Johnston whose phenomenal viral video emergence several years ago was nothing short of prophetic. That said, her upcoming appearance in Miguel Ferrer's tentatively titled Female Fight Club should be equally interesting.
And finally and far from least, while it was unfortunate for fans to see Adkins and international action star Tony Jaa depart from the from then-Stephen Fung's Kickboxer remake, it's still worthy to see what happens for it with at least two films coming down the pipeline. Alas, we now have John Stockwell's Kickboxer: Vengenace from Acme Rocket Fuel and Headmon Entertainment with martial artist Alain Moussi making his feature film debut next to Dave Bautista, Gina Carano and action star Jean-Claude Van Damme in a refurbished role of the master who trains vengeful Kurt Sloane to take on the ruthless Muay Thai brute, Tong Po.
