G.I. Joe Snake Eyes Movie

Just when you thought the G.I. Joe franchise was dead, Paramount Pictures is back with a brand new movie based on the Hasbro toy franchise. But instead of continuing the series that started with G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra and G.I. Joe: Retaliation, the studio is heading in a new direction with an origin story for one of the most popular characters in the action figure line-up.

Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins kicked off production in Japan today with a special event overseas that revealed the film’s official logo and had some of the cast and crew partake in a special blessing ceremony at the Hie-Jinja Shrine in Tokyo, a historical Shinto site that has been around over 500 years. This ninja movie is real, and it’s on the way. Read More »

The Night Comes for Us Review

Iko Uwais kicked so much ass in the Indonesian action movie The Raid and the even more brutal sequel The Raid 2, and we’re wondering why no mainstream action movie has yet taken advantage of his incredible martial arts skills to their full potential. But hopefully that’s about the change, because the actor has landed a key role in the upcoming G.I. Joe spin-off Snake Eyes starring Crazy Rich Asians leading man Henry Golding as the titular ninja commando. Read More »

Triple Threat trailer

If you asked a group of diehard genre fans to make a list of the four best martial arts movie stars in the world right now, I imagine an overwhelming majority of the results would include these names: Tony Jaa (the Ong Bak trilogy), Iko Uwais (The Raid films), Tiger Chen (Man of Tai Chi), and Scott Adkins (Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning).

An upcoming film called Triple Threat has united these international ass-kickers, and a new trailer has arrived today as an unconventional Valentine’s Day present for martial arts fans everywhere. Check it out below.

the night comes for us trailer

The Raid co-stars Iko Uwais and Joe Taslim reunited in an Indonesian action flick even more brutal than the Gareth Evans thriller? Yes please. The Night Comes For Us made blood and brains splatter when it debuted at Fantastic Fest in Austin last month, delivering the kind of thrills that genre fanatics could only dream of. And the Timo Tjahjanto action film is a Netflix production, which means you’ll get to see it soon. The streaming service just released a The Night Comes For Us Trailer ahead of the badass action flick’s premiere on the streaming service later this month.

The Night Comes for Us Review

When writer/director Timo Tjahjanto introduced The Night Comes For Us to an eager Fantastic Fest crowd, he promised “a truckload” of dead bodies would stack tall in his “Asian-on-Asian” Triad brutalizer. Carcasses maimed, mangled, and beaten to pulpy piles of mush by a cast of The Raid and Headshot veterans. Maybe a Ford F-150 sized “truckload,” I wondered? Not even close. The Night Comes For Us is a bloody, action-packed gangland punch-a-minute thriller that might as well be The Raid 3 based on style and body count. Tjahjanto kicks infinite ass and beats boredom into a sniveling oblivion.

mile 22 clip

The marketing team behind Mile 22 is running full-speed ahead with new clips and featurettes. Perhaps they realize that they’re opening in the shadow of Mission: Impossible – Fallout or perhaps Migos isn’t as big of a draw as they hoped.
