Take A Behind The Scenes Look At VIKINGDOM And DIVERGENT
This week we have the first installment of a behind-the-scenes look on the upcoming fantasy adventure, Vikingdom from director Yusry A. Halim. The film is a Malaysian production from KRU Studios and delves into the tale of a forgotten king who must band with a group of warriors in order to defeat Thor, a mission that will take him beyond realms and into the depths of hell in order to save the world.
The featurette introduces you to a few of the actors, the director, and the stunt coordinator, each providing insight on the overall look of the film.
Vikingdom recently acquired multi-territorial acquisition by Universal, who will be bringing Vikingdom to a limited 2D and 3D theaters in North America on October 4, 2013. The film stars Dominic Purcell, Natasha Malthe, Craig Fairbass, Jon Foo and Conan Stevens.
More featurettes are expected, so be sure to subscribe to the film's official Youtube channel below to keep up with the latest.
We also have a new behind the scenes featurette from the set of director Neil Burger's upcoming sci-fi action adventure, Divergent. The featurette comes just a few days after the official teaser premiered at the MTV Video Music Awards this past Sunday.
Actress Shailene Woodley stars in this story of a post-apocalyptic society broken into five strict personality-based factions, where one young woman's unique identity forces her into secrecy. The film is adapted from author Veronica Roth's best-selling young adult trilogy-to-be of sci-fi novels.
Divergent also stars Theo James, Kate Winslet, Ray Stevenson, Mekhi Phifer, Maggie Q, Jai Courtney, Miles Teller, Zoë Kravitz, Ansel Elgort, Ben Lloyd-Hughes, Ben Lamb, Christian Madsen, Amy Newbold, Ashley Judd and Tony Goldwyn. The film will release in 2D and IMAX on March 21, 2014, courtesy of Summit Entertainment (Lionsgate).
EXCLUSIVE: Independent filmmaker James Lee is well on the way with the new martial arts redemtpion thriller, Kill-Fist. Hailing a reunion for the director and his lead actor, Singaporean action favorite, recurring Code Of Law star Sunny Pang, the film further etches a mutual creative partnership for the two who've known each other for more than a decade in cinema. "It was fun and great to work with him again after The Collector and Call If You Need Me." says Lee who cites that as both were different films that served the purpose Kill-Fist aims to do once more in challenging Pang as an actor. "Indeed he had to do some preparations for the character tragic Zhang. Kill-Fist is kind of a refresher for both of us, we hope we can move to bigger projects after this."
Pang, who serves up more brutal screentime in Gavin Lim's own upcoming film, Diamond Dogs, is one of the two principal leads for Kill-Fist next to actor Alan Yun, both central to the story in the respe…
I'm pondering taking next weekend off for the Hit List. As it stands I have a few screeners that need screening and reviewing and I haven't at all had the time for them. Plus, a little extra time for myself would be spiffy.
Of course, all that could change depending on the content of the coming week and if it's too good to hold back, you can expect another entry online stunts and hits. For now, its the 16th of April and back hand-springing in her element is stuntwoman Niahlah Hope for the inaugural reel of this week's stunt playlist.
Rounding it all out are reels by Max Laferriere, Thaddeus McQueen, John Wood, Amber Lamarca, Ivan Kasnyov, Nakamura Koji, Bryan Dodds, Beni Alexander, Attilla Kiss, Sarah Laidler, Joseph Roark and StormFreerun with a cinematic display of parkour feats featuring athlete Charlie Havill. Last and far from least is a share from Vimeo with a cool fight reel by Timothy Eulich.
An exasperating wait, no less, for folks like myself who live in the U.S.. Still, it's nice to know that a Blu-Ray/Digital HD release of the new tournament martial arts thriller, Boyka: Undisputed, is well on its way with an August release, while it's even nicer to know that the film's star, actor and martial artist Scott Adkins wants to do a fifth.
He says so at around the 11:40 mark in his latest interview now online following his recent appearance at MCM Expo in London this week to discuss the role and the film as a whole - And not for nothing either as he continues to pound away at fans who enjoy his movies, but insist on stealing them online which will otherwise kill any chance of the film happening before 2030 if we're lucky (my words, not his).
Adkins also shares several new images from his latest, Accident Man, and some gems on Michael Cuesta's American Assassin, working with Tony Jaa on the recently-wrapped ensemble action thriller, Triple Threat, and muc…
