next dave bautista movies

Dave Bautista has proven to be a stellar supporting actor in all manner of blockbusters — whether it be as a grim former soldier in Blade Runner 2049 or his lovable meathead Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy. But now, Bautista is ready to step into leading man territory.

Bautista will star in not one, but two action-comedies. The first is an mismatched buddy-detective comedy from 20th Century Fox co-starring Kumail Nanjiani, while the second is a Jon and Erich Hoeber-penned STX comedy.

beyond skyline

Do you remember Skyline, the 2010 science fiction movie about people trapped in an apartment during an alien invasion? Of course you don’t. It was awful. Terrible. Probably one of the worst movies given a wide release in theaters that year. But it was also cheap, produced for a modest $10 million budget, allowing it to make enough money to justify a sequel. And now, seven years later, the trailer for that sequel has arrived.

And it looks…not bad? Perhaps that’s because Beyond Skyline features a new cast, a new setting, a new director, and only a tenuous connection to the original movie.

If you recognize the names Tony Jaa, Iko Uwais, and Tiger Chen without looking them up, then your day is about to get a whole lot better: the three martial arts movie stars (who appeared in films like Ong-Bak, The Raid, and Man of Tai Chi, respectively) have teamed up for a new action movie called Triple Threat, and the first trailer has arrived. This is the Avengers of modern martial arts films.

If you don’t know these guys’ names and you’re a fan of bone-crunching action movies, allow this to be your introduction to what this group of cinematic badasses is all about.

Headshot Trailer - Iko Uwais

We should probably get this out of the way right now: Headshot is not The Raid. However, anyone wanting to see The Raid star Iko Uwais obliterate a number of other human beings with his fists, feet, and found objects of all shapes and sharpness will find plenty to treasure here. Directors Kimo Stamboel and Timo Tjahjanto have made an action movie for action fans, where the focus is placed (mostly) on watching tough guys beat each other to a bloody pulp in the most spectacular ways imaginable. It’s a ton of fun.

The new Headshot trailer should seal the deal – you’re going to know whether you’re in or out pretty quickly.

triple threat

Do you want to hear a really, really good idea? How about an action movie that unites the stars of Ong-Bak, Man of Tai Chi, and The Raid and lets them do what they do best. That’s the selling point of the appropriately titled Triple Threat, the latest film to be revealed at the American Film Market and a project that I would very much like to have injected into my eyeballs right now, thank you very much.
