If you liked Scott Adkins as Kaecilius’ henchman in Doctor Strange or as Mitch Rapp’s training rival in American Assassin, you’ll be pleased to know there’s a whole host of movies in which Adkins really shows us his moves. Action fans may know him as Boyka in the Undisputed sequels or from his lead roles in the Ninja films or from movies like Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning and Hard Target 2. If not, it’s time to change that…because he’s not slowing down.
Accident Man, Adkins’ latest starring vehicle, is his dream project. Based on the comic of the same name, Adkins co-wrote the screenplay and stars as Mike Fallon, a hitman who specializes in making his kills look like accidents. When his ex-girlfriend Beth turns up dead, Fallon goes up against his fellow hitmen, with the help of Beth’s girlfriend (Ashley Greene).
Adkins Skyped with /Film from his home in London to discuss Accident Man, as well as his experiences in Doctor Strange and American Assassin. Accident Man is available on Blu-ray, DVD, digital and VOD on February 6, 2018.

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.

So far, Marvel’s Doctor Strange has collected a cast that seems like they’d be more at home at reciting Shakespeare or the brothers Coen than throwing down with supervillains. But the film’s latest addition guarantees we can count on some pretty kickass action scenes as well. Scott Adkins (The Expendables 2) has just joined the star-studded cast, which includes Benedict Cumberbatch as the title character. More about the Doctor Strange Scott Adkins casting after the jump.

The ad campaign for Kathryn Bigelow‘s Zero Dark Thirty, which chronicles the mission that led to the killing of Osama Bin Laden by a Navy SEAL team, has been pretty low-key so far. But then, the studio hasn’t had to do much, as there has been a fair amount of publicity for the movie thanks to accusations that the original October release date was meant to remind audiences of President Obama’s role in the mission, just before the Presidential election takes place. There have been far more serious (but unproven) allegations that the film is based on access to classified data that was given illegally to the production.
Now it’s time to move beyond those talking points to look at the actual film. Derspite featuring Joel Edgerton, Jessica Chastain, Chris Pratt, Kyle Chandler, Mark Strong, and Jason Clarke, the teaser trailer showed few faces, and relied upon audio montage to set up the story of the hunt for Bin Laden. A few images later gave us a bit more. Now you can see a lot more of Bigelow’s follow-up to The Hurt Locker, in the full trailer below. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
While Simon West‘s The Expendables 2 has been adding big names left and right, one that won’t be returning is Mickey Rourke. The Oscar-nominee had a small part in the first film but won’t reprise it, instead choosing a film with a little more cache: Martin McDonagh’s Seven Psychopaths with Colin Farrel, Christopher Walken and Sam Rockwell.
His departure is the latest in a series of small Expendables 2 updates, which is currently filming in Bulgaria. After the jump, check out a few set images including one with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone and Bruce Willis and another revealing a new cast member. Read More »
The last time we had good word on The Expendables 2, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger had been confirmed for meaty roles alongside returning star Sylvester Stallone and presumably returning actors Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke, Terry Crews and Jet Li.
Donnie Yen, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris and John Travolta have all been rumored as well, with one report seeming to confirm the participation of classic ass-kickers Norris and Van Damme. (And Travola, too, though he’s less of an ass-kicker.) Now we’ve got word, straight from Stallone, that Norris, Van Damme are indeed in the film, and a Nicolas Cage and John Travolta will show up if things can be worked out. Read More »
