Luc Besson's VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS Rockets Online With The Official Trailer


Last November proved to be rather fun and engaging with the fan-attributed lauch of the initial teaser trailer for Luc Besson's Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Fans even got their own trailer (as did we), and thus, with a release date now set for July 21 in the U.S. following EuropaCorp's partnership with STX Entertainment, the official trailer is now online and just as full of interstellar action and spectacle.

Arrow Films Acquires VIKING For U.K. Distribution!


Much like other big scale Russian film productions of late, director Andrey Kravchuk's epic period action thriller, Viking, has often been the subject of question over wide release potential. The movie made for grand buzz for its local and CIS theatrical reception back in December with Danila Kozlovsky starring from a script by Kravchuk and scribes Andrey Rubanov and Viktor Smirnov, and grossing $25 million dollars for its run.

Scott Adkins Action Sci-Fi, INCOMING, Lands At XLRator Media: First Look


Some of you might have noted Brit-kicker, actor Scott Adkins posting the above video of himself sporting a certain bearded look while training at a gym in Belgrade, Serbia. Cool kicks aside, it appears he's been in town this entire time filming Benattar/Thomas Productions’ latest action thriller sci-fi, Incoming, which has since landed at XLrator Media for U.S. distribution.

Mark Wahlberg And Peter Berg Stretch MILE 22 Into Franchise Territory At CinemaCon


Development of STX Entertainment's long-awaited Asian action thriller, Mile 22, has been on hold for sometime now. Call it a really slow brew - nearly two years, in fact. Thankfully though, the film is in play at the studio where the film has taken shape to some degree with a few changes since then.

SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Invites Rich Friends, New Enemies, And Coming-Of-Age Teen Dilemma In The Brand New Trailer


Where the Russos' Captain America: Civil War left us off, director Jon Watts picks up for moviegoers with actor Tom Holland in Spider-Man: Homecoming for its July 7 release. The week is lit so far with events trickling from CinemaCon and such include the goings-on from Sony in their daring bid to return us to the world of eager superhero Peter Parker in the form of well fitting Tom Holland taking in the title role.

Overview: GINTAMA: BATTLE ON RAKUYOU Culminates With Excitement In Lieu Of An Epic Finale

Bandai Namco Pictures
Battle on Rakuyou (also known as Rakuyou Decisive Battle Arc)

Several weeks after the events of Farewell Shinsengumi Arc, our heroes, having teamed up with Jouishishi, Kaientai and the remaining members of Kiheitai, are headed to the dystopian planet Rakuyou to rescue Takasugi from the clutches of Utsuro and the Harusame. Utsuro, however, has an agenda of his own, eyeing Umibozu as the potential candidate to end his centuries-old suffering. Alas, Umibozu has to take care of some urgent family matters, namely setting his wandering son back on the right path. Phew, that's a handful for only twelve episodes! But worry not, this is Gintama, and it sure knows how to string all that chaos together and deliver yet another staggering arc.

THE HIT LIST: March 27, 2017

Welcome back to another installment of The Hit List! Nope, no sponsors, no commercial breaks, just me, you, and the creatives out here putting their craft on display for the world, and there's a lot to cover so let's get to it!

Karl Urban's DREDD To Enforce The Law On 4K Blu-Ray This Summer From Lionsgate Unlocked!

Lionsgate
From its Fall theatrical release in 2012 and then on, you will never see me not supporting or endorsing director Pete Travis's 2000 A.D. hit adaptation, Dredd. Yes, it's a hit both critically and from a cult perspective, and much more deserving than the reception it got five years ago when fans decided to save their money to make themselves dizzy the following month with Taken 2... I can't even.

THE RIFT: Kaleidoscope Releases The New Sci-Fi In The UK Today!

Dejan Zecevic's award-winning sci-fi thriller, The Rift, has a U.S. release pending for certain. In the meantime, following event screenings in Germany, Italy and Portugal in Spain, Jinga Films has announced a March 27 U.K. release as of Monday for the new film courtesy of Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment.

Paul Greengrass To Tackle Post-Untouchables True Crime Tale, NESS, For Paramount

Brian De Palma's 1987 crime thriller, The Untouchables, is a longtime favorite for almost any cinephile who loves a good Prohibition era flick. There was even a television show that transpired in the U.S. back in the 1990s that I liked, both inspired by the 1957 book of the same name, and interestingly, other artists and authors have taken its foremost character and even advanced his story even further.

GHOST IN THE SHELL Gets An Action Packed Final Trailer

Director Rupert Sanders's Ghost In The Shell continues to sell its stronger points ahead of its release later this week - largely attributed to the stunning visuals and our characters in costume for a pitch that would have any otaku noob believe the film directly pays homage to its animated and manga predecessors. As for whether or not that is the case, I couldn't tell you. I'll make my mind up when I see the reviews from the trades but I can't really wrap my head around some of the changes this film might have made.

Live-Action Manga Drama, BLAZING TRANSFER STUDENT: REBORN Gets Greenlit For Netflix This Winter

Live-action manga fare is abound and now heading to Netflix by way of Shimamoto Kazuhiko's 1983 manga, Blazing Transfer Student. Detroit Metal City helmer Li Toshio is directing the newly greenlit series based on the manga centered on Takizawa Noboru, a high school student who tries to win over the right to date school idol according to the school's ground rules where big disputes are settled with fists.

SHOCK WAVE: Andy Lau Is God's Anti-Explosive Messenger In The Newest Trailer

Just for upkeep, the latest trailer for Herman Yau's new movie, Shock Wave, arrived online, and with a much more heavy dose of comprehension thanks to English subs. The film opens on April 20 and with beloved actor Andy Lau fresh and on the mend from an earlier injury overseas in time for the film's campaign to ramp up as it already has... which doesn't make his role seem any less pretentious, to be frank.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: VOL 2 Lands Character Posters And New Trailer


Nothing to see here... just another kick ass trailer for James Gunn's Guardians Of The Galaxy: Vol. 2 opening on May 5. The first one was a lovely surprise hit and with the sequel in bound, I think this one is going to be a blast. Needless to say, I wanna see it with friends.

The JUSTICE LEAGUE Comes Together In The New Official Trailer!


Efforts to bring the DCU together at Warner Bros. Pictures remain on going with the development of several of its properties, a few of which are slowly but surely gaining traction; The latter being at least three of the now culminating cast for the first of two Justice League films currently on deck from the studio with a release date set for November 17.

First Impressions: POWER RANGERS (2017) - Once More With Attitude!

So I usually let a film sink in for a few days before I write a review. In this case, I wanted to put out a little bit of a pre-cursor statement to you all before I went more in depth into the new Power Rangers movie so here’s my spoiler-free-not-so-elevator-pitch as to why you should see this movie.

ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK Lands A Hopeful Director In Robert Rodriguez

Back in 2013 we eventually caught wind from the trades of the efforts underway at 20th Century Fox to reboot John Carpenter's cult classic, Escape From New York. There is a lot that has stirred in terms of casting options but the word now is that Robert Rodriguez is poised as the frontrunner to helm the picture.

Ciarán Foy To Direct Horror Thriller, ELI, For Broad Green


Ciarán Foy (Sinister 2) is moving on with horror thriller, Eli, directing for Broad Green Pictures.

Intrepid's Melinda Nishioka will co-produce with Gabriel and Daniel Hammond executive producing for Broad Green.

The film has cast Karl Urban for the lead role of a disgraced narc and ex-con who sets out to find the person who framed him and killed his partner only to discover greater stakes and treachery unfolding around him.

Review: FIST 2 FIST: WEAPON OF CHOICE (2014) Fires Hard And Heavy With Action, Runs Low Too Soon


Want to know what I like about filmmaking? Anyone can do it. Want to know what else I like about filmmaking? ANYONE can do it. Now don’t take this from me as being patronizing. I really do say this from the exact opposite end. Filmmakers come from all walks of life and backgrounds and when one of those backgrounds happens to be in martial arts you get a very unique kind of filmmaker who can produce art with the discipline developed over years of pushing one’s boundaries. It's a background that I am glad to say I can share with filmmaker and action actor Jino Kang.

BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL Teases Our Villains In New Character Promos


Director Miike Takashi's Blade Of The Immortal is opening in Japan on April 29, and a slate of new character promos are now online to view below and share. Oddly enough there are hardly any posters, save for a new cast image that arrived with the launch of its official website earlier this year but hopefully that will change.

CIBLE: Vengeance Comes Home In The Official Shortfilm Trailer


Earlier this month, we presented an exclusive look at promotional artwork for director Danny Leysner's latest shortfilm foray Cible. A trailer was inbound with a release that took some extra days thereafter to finalize but now we can report that an online premiere is now being planned for an April 20 premiere for an audience in Amsterdam with an online release to follow suit.

MANIAC COP Lands At Wild Bunch For Int'l Sales, Shoots This Summer In Los Angeles


Back during Fantastic Fest in 2015, John Hyams, the genius director of Universal Solder sequels - Regeneration and Day Of Reckoning, was attached to direct a forthcoming remake of William Lustig's 1988 cult horror classic, Maniac Cop. Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive, The Neon Demon) launched financing efforts for the film the following year at Cannes while the film still needed backing with all the right pieces and people in place.

Coming Of Age Assassin Tale PLAYGROUND Launches Trailer For Blackpills/Vice Digital Mobile Series


Action choreographer Olivier Schneider (Spectre) is one of those people truly worth keeping an eye on as yet another in the stunt and screenfighting field getting a footing in the directing field. He's done so accordingly with Pascal Sid (Behind The Walls) in teaming up for the mobile exclusive action-packed series, Playground, French startup, Blackpills, has signed a deal with Vice where it is now available.

16th Century Black Samurai, Yasuke, Poised For Feature Film At Lionsgate, Gregory Widen Scripting

Browse on social media long enough in the last few years and you might have come across a few factoids about an African Samurai named Yasuke who served under lord Oda Nobunaga in 16th century Japan. The exact details about Yasuke's story aren't clear and take a few different directions, but that isn't stopping Lionsgate from positioning itself in development for a feature-length iteration of the new movie, Black Samurai.

JUSTICE LEAGUE Poster And Teases Announce Official Trailer Launching Saturday!


It's perhaps the one other biggest superhero amalgam to be put on the screen following Marvel's The Avengers. Surely, the execution of the DCU mostly housed at Warner Bros. hasn't been a flawless one, but it has grasped itself a footing with some great prospects in hand, mile-marked by the forthcoming release of the new movie, Justice League.

SAVAGE OFF SCREEN: A Word With Actress, Martial Artist And Author JuJu Chan


Actress JuJu Chan (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword Of Destiny) has often been referred to as "the female Bruce Lee" and for good reason. Just like Lee, she is an actress, a martial artist and a published author. Sure, she may not have invented her own martial arts system, but then Bruce was never a singer/songwriter (that we know of) so we'll call it a draw...for now.

Her latest movie, Savage Dog, sees her sharing the screen with Scott Adkins, Marko Zaror and Cung Le. She may not have gotten to do much in the way of kicking ass on camera, but that didn't stop her from fulfilling most of our dream of training with, sparring with and just hanging out with this trio of badasses.

Film Combat Syndicate: What can you tell us about your character in Savage Dog?
JC: I'm playing Isabelle. She's the emotional drive of the whole film. She's very innocent but strong; believing that there's always a good side to people. I'm really strong, I have a strong mind but not physically fighting. I don't get to do any fighting in the film. I have a romantic relationship with Scott's character. Because of me, he takes action and goes after the villains of the film. I got to play a very understated character in this film.

Before The Movie Can Be Made, THE MAN FROM DEATH Needs Your Help To Stage A Script Reading Event!


Roughly over a year ago I managed to procure an interview actor and producer Eric R. Lim (Greenside, Ghost Source Zero) whose creative influx at the time came at a purely raw, emotional and pivotal point in his life after his sister's death in 2012. Netizens took hold of that creativity a year later with director Stephen Reedy's beautifully-crafted, fiery, action-packed message drama, The Forge, a project that proved fortuitous enough to bring Lim and Reedy together again the following year for their latest shortfilm success, The Man From Death.

SILVER SABLE And BLACK CAT Are Officially Advancing At Sony


Sony Pictures is officially tackling properties, Silver Sable and Black Cat for a feature-film production according to THR. Christopher Yost who helped scribe the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok is now penning the script with Matt Tolmach and Amy Pascal producing for a hopeful Fall start date.

THE TALES OF WUKONG Character Posters: Warriors, Assassins And Puppies, Oh My!


Between 2014 up to now, actor Eddie Peng has become someone I can appreciate. His most recent stint in Rise Of The Legend drew my praise as one of the best and most undeservedly undercelebrated martial arts movies by far and his body of work continues to grow with the upcoming fantasy epic, The Tales Of Wukong, inspired obviously by the titular Chinese mythic folk hero of legend, The Monkey King.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: VOL. 2 Rolls Out The Most Obvious IMAX Poster You'll See


I already love this movie based on what I've read in the months leading since its first trailer. That said, I'm pretty sure Guardians Of The Galaxy: Vol. 2 will have zero trouble selling enough tickets for Guardians Of The Galaxy: Vol. 3, but here's the latest IMAX poster.

Please Cut The Crap And Enjoy The New Teaser For Adam Wingard's Netflix Thriller, DEATH NOTE

Netflix
Never mind that actor Lakeith Stanfield is playing socially awkward, yet intellectually sturdy and agile L, you needn't look long on Twitter to find people complaining about Adam Wingard's treatment of the hit manga and anime property, Death Note, which now has a release date scored for August 25 on Netflix.

AGENT: Catch The Trailer For Derek Ting's New Sci-Fi Thriller


A group of young adults eager to shoot guns things in the middle of nowhere only to unravel a supernatural mystery that endangers them? Sounds like a doable premise and actor/writer/director Derek Ting (Supercapitalist, Always) certainly saw it through with his latest feature film effort, Agent.

Cambodian Martial Arts Comedy, JAILBREAK, Gets Distribution In Korea

The Cambodia Film Commission took to Hong Kong FilMart last week to promote some of its nation's moviegoing prospects. One of its most prolific titles, the action comedy Jailbreak, already has some positive reviews and reactions going for itself following its local release in January which makes a pretty useful case to embolden the film elsewhere.

See Odd Jobs Gin At Work In New GINTAMA Set Pics And Stills

If there's one movie I'm really looking forward to, it's director Fukuda Yuichi's live-action adaptation of hit manga and anime, Gintama. Granted, I know quite a few people who aren't really keen on the film's take thusfar but the reception from the fanbase has been pretty positive in my view.

FilMart Banner And Poster Images Arise For 'Ip Man 3' Spin-Off, CHEUNG TIN-CHI

Ip Man 3
Perhaps one of the biggest prospects coming out of FilMart last week was the addition of actor and martial artist Max Zhang's upcoming role in Cheung Tin-Chi, spinning off lead actor Donnie Yen's opposite in the 2016 hit, Ip Man 3. And it's pretty big, too, for Zhang's current career progression now landing him roles in several noteworthy projects to date from Asia through Hollywood, including The Invincible Dragon for Pegasus Motion Pictures, and Pacific Rim 2: Uprising for Universal Pictures and Legendary Pictures.

Catch The Fearless New Trailer For EXTRAORDINARY MISSION

Details have been slowly rolling out ever since the teasers aired last year for the new action thriller, Extraordinary Mission from the team behind the Infernal Affairs and Overheard film franchises. The film has since staked itself a local theatrical release on April 6 and as such, Distribution Workshop now boasts a fresh new trailer with English subtitles to oblige.

BLACK BUTTERFLY Flutters With Chilling Resolve In The New Trailer

Antonio Banderas is already on my radar for a few movies this year but Brian Goodman's latest caught me by surprise. The new film, Black Butterfly, revised from Christian Faure's 2008 award-winning TV movie predecessor joins Banderas with Jonathan Rhys Meyers and actress Piper Perabo for a limited theatrical release on May 26 from Lionsgate Premiere.

Fathom Events Announces One-Night Event For RESIDENT EVIL: VENDETTA This June Following May Wide Release

I couldn't tell you much about any of the Resident Evil films, or the games for that matter. I've only seen maybe four out of the what? Six...live-action movies from Sony?

THE NIGHT COMES FOR US Wraps Principal Photography

Princpal photography wrapped on Tuesday for the filming leg of writer and director Timo Tjahjanto's solo directorial debut, The Night Comes For Us. Production on the pic took a near-seven year evolution and finally went underway last December with scenes filmed in and around Jakarta, Indonesia for its seventy-six day shoot following its resurrection last August.

Feel The SHOCK WAVE In The Official Trailer For The New Herman Yau Thriller

Andy Lau's recent hospital stint has certainly kept him relevant and in the good graces and best wishes of fans after a bad horse riding spill back in January. Currently out of the hospital and on the mend, the good news arrives timely in the wake of the latest trailer now online for the new action thriller, Shock Wave, opening next month in Asia.

Director Christopher McQuarrie is currently working to up the ante for the sixth installment of Paramount's Mission: Impossible franchise. In the meantime, McQuarrie is also being poised to helm the forthcoming live-action adaptation, Star Blazers, according to the latest report at Deadline.

THE HIT LIST: March 20, 2017

Well, it's been another close call but I finally managed to bring you this week's installation of The Hit List for your own viewing pleasure. Last week was crazy packed with festival news upkeep from Asia along with posting our recent inteview with actress Yadi Nieves and managing to review Mitsutake Kurando's new movie, Karate Kill, which releases this summer. Considering all this and then some, I'm ready for the weekend!

The Iron Dragon TV ActionFest Extends Its Submission Deadline By Two Months


Filmmakers and performers will have a chance this summer to bring their projects to an audience in Austin events officially kick off for the Iron Dragon TV ActionFest.

Catch The Season Two Highlight Promo For INTO THE BADLANDS!

AMC
Sunday night's premiere of Into The Badlands on AMC was nothing short of explosive. From the intro of ex-clipper Sunny's captivity in the mines to the onslaught the Widow brought in the second half, the series, created by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, has gone out of its way to raise the stakes just a little more from its previous run.

Review: KARATE KILL (2017) Kills With Karate, And Lots Of It!


Prior to 2014, I had not been hugely familar with director Mitsutake Kurando's work. Then, following Samurai Avenger: The Blind Wolf in 2009, Gun Woman happened and it essentially, vociferously, put him on my radar as I'm sure it did for many folks in festivals as well as other niche viewers who may all agree on the consensus here: His is a no holds barred, unapologetic, down and dirty, retro style of direction, done so with a sheer sense of clarity and understanding on how to assemble an action film, and importantly, without selling his performers short.

Cam's Eye Review: TREMORS 5: BLOODLINES (2015) - Burt Gummer, Action Hero


Our survivalist and reluctant hero Burt Gummer (Michael Gross) is back with a vengeance, a new partner in Travis B. Welker (Jamie Kennedy), and on a new continent, Africa, battling a new kind of evolutionary nightmare Assblaster and Graboid. Both gentlemen are enlisted by an alleged African Wildlife Ministry representative, Erich Van Wyck (Daniel Janks), to capture the beasts. Along with a beautiful wildlife sancutary doctor, Nandi Montabu (Pearl Thusi) and her young daughter, Amahle (Nolitha Zulu), they all come together to do battle with the creatures. This film is a feast for the eyes as this particular production was filmed in the Cradle of Humankind itself, Houtang Province, in South Africa.

Chapman To's Martial Arts Drama, THE EMPTY HANDS Teaser Arrives In Contemplative Form

Chapman To's latest directorial offering has now arrived with a first teaser for his upcoming Karate drama, The Empty Hands.

SHADOW: Zhang Yimou Commences Filming On The New Three Kingdoms-set Pic


Head over here to check out Marc Walkow's piece at the Outtake column on Zhang Yimou's 2002 Jet Li epic, Hero. Frankly I think it's one of the better films from the director and it's unfortunate that his most recent film undercuts some of his more glorious work according to some critics.

Review: IRON FIST (2017) - No, You Still Can't Change My Mind

Netflix
Well, I don't know about you, but I'm beat!

Friday saw the release of Marvel's Iron Fist on Netflix and after about a week's worth of brouhaha from critics, I caught the pilot and decided that anyone basically with a full-on negative review of this show needed to... as one of the show's main character implies, CALM THE F DOWN! And after watching the remaining twelve episodes, STILL, I say exactly that.

WHERE DISTINCTION MEETS PURPOSE: An Interview With Actress, Producer And Filmmaker Yadi Nieves


It took me quite a bit to get the nerve up to strike a conversation with actress, dancer, filmmaker and producer Yadi Nieves. She's beautiful, relatable, and so happens to be one of the most fiercest talents I've seen on screen, especially when it comes to screenfighting. I chalk much of this up to her dance background in accordance with her growing ability to pick up on choreography as well, something she so demonstrates in many of the shortfilms under production banner, Distinctive Light Entertainment.

IRON FIST (2017): Episode One Reaction, And Why I Will Continue To Watch


It's been undoubtedly a rough year for Marvel fans who've waited to see what would stick and what wouldn't from showrunner and executive producer Scott Buck's treatment of comic book property, Iron Fist. I've waited as a matter of maybe fifteen years since actor and martial artist Ray Park was slated to star in his own movie inspired by the character and for what it's worth, I'm glad I lived this long to see something come of it, even if a number of fans out in the world can't afford or simply don't have Netflix, which sucks. I understand wholly.

Marvel Franchise Vehicle, VENOM, Strikes A Release Date From Sony


It's been ten years since Marvel villain, Venom, went toe-to-toe with Spider-Man in a movie. Spin-off efforts then underwent a series of gymnastic developments while in limbo and needless to say I won't get too much into the convoluted history that occurs thereafter.

The New Trailer For LAST COP: THE MOVIE Goes For The Glory!

Expect things to ramp up a bit for actor Kubota Masataka with his latest starring role in a live-action adaptation of Tokyo Ghoul this summer. Until then, you can catch him laying down the law some alongside Karasawa Toshiaki this may in the new action comedy, Last Cop: The Movie which opens in May, and now with a new trailer in its wake after airing a teaser in December.

Review: Johnnie To's THREE, And The Intricacies Of Character


From acclaimed Hong Kong action director Johnnie To, this well-crafted action-thriller is set in a hospital environment. Where Hollywood can be bogged down in cliche when it comes to hospital drama, this director imparts his inimitable visual style as an artist brushes the canvass with precision and passion. To's brushes on this particular canvass are at once gritty, real, and eventually winds up as a battleground where people are caught in the crossfire.

WOLF GUY, DJANGO PREPARE A COFFIN, HOUSE And More Announced In MVD's U.S. Release Slate This Spring

Dwayne Johnson Inferno Thriller, SKYSCRAPER, Heats Up Next Summer For Universal/Legendary

Moviegoers are just one month away from the release of Dwayne Johnson's appearance in Universal Pictures's The Fate Of The Furious. It's one of many titles on deck for the actor who has been staying amply busy in the past several years staking his claim in many projects on both the big and small screen, and even on the web.
