Director Renny Harlin's international action comedy, Skiptrace, has been missing for a while with a release once set for last December. A new trailer began circulating in February before news broke that the film would finally release in the U.S. through Saban Films amid waiting for its own domestic release date in Asia.
Judging by the latest poster now making the rounds, the date posted for July 22 seems otherwise promising, and a new trailer (largely dubbed in Mandarin) seems to be making the rounds; Chan plays a Hong Kong detective whose path crosses with American gambler (played by Johnny Knoxville) in the wake of a ten year investigation into a notorious crimeboss.
I'm not sharing the trailer here since it looks like the bottom end of it was edited out with the last shot of Chan playing with this throat, so once a full trailer comes my direction, I'll add it to this article. In the meantime, check out the poster below...it's got a bullet going through the head of a smiling Chan. What better way to sell an action comedy?

EXCLUSIVE: In the months since its evolution, the highly anticipated action thriller, Triple Threat (formely Makeshift Squad) has been a bookmark for many an Asian cinema fan looking to see just how this particular "Asian-Expendables" kind of movie this will bring about. The prospects have been good, too, and notably in the wake of its casting additions including headliners Tiger Chen (Man Of Tai Chi), Tony Jaa (Furious Seven) and Iko Uwais (Headshot), and particularly with 87eleven's own Chad Stahelski (John Wick: Chapter 2) behind the action scenes.
I think it's safe to say you know your movie sucks when you not only screw the rights holders whose name and content you base your unsanctioned film on, but when said rights holders join the chorus of critics panning your movie from literally every angle of the internet. That is the level of achievement you have reached if your name is George Nolfi and you've directed a film called Birth Of The Dragon, long hyped to be a hopefully legendary homage to Bruce Lee, the late founder of Jeet Kune Do and patriarch of American martial arts movie fandom.
SPEAK OUT: Which Femme Fatales Would You Like To See Starring Opposite Alain Moussi In KICKBOXER: SYNDICATE?
John Stockwell's Kickboxer: Vengeance is now available wherever movies are sold in the U.S. and Canada with other screenings pending. It's a film that otherwise garners caution for fans as a rebooted fanfare that nonetheless has actor and martial artist Alain Moussi leading the action vehicle next to the star of its original iteration, actor Jean-Claude Van Damme.
