Vidyut Jammwal Is Blinded By Money In The First Teaser Artwork For COMMANDO 2
Dilip Ghosh's 2013 actioner, Commando: A One Man Army, was a rousing affair, notably for its nostalgic title which all but further helped solidify Hindi actor and martial artist Vidyut Jammwal in the eyes of moviegoers. Interestingly it wasn't long before a sequel was greenlit and it was anyone's guess who would join in apart from actress Adah Sharma, and the current crop now wrangled together debut helmer Deven Bhojani for the upcoming release of Commando 2 on March 3.
Wherein the first film saw our hero embroiled in political conspiracy and on the run in a story leading up to the confrontation of a powerful criminal in relentless pursuit of his financé desperate to flee him, our hero returns to the fray using his deadly skillset and fighting prowess to take on the auspices of an illegal dark money ring stretching out to banks abroad. Hence, the first teaser poster arrived this week ahead of the film's release and any teaser and trailer footage that may come about. Check it out below!
The past year or so have lended an ample opportunity to familiarize myself with the work of actor and producer Alexander Nevsky in lieu of his upcoming April 28 U.S. release, Black Rose. The film marks his directorial debut wherein he also stars in a formula slightly different from his usually known action star persona from his film career in Russia, and joined by none other than actress Kristanna Loken.
With the film a little over a week away from its limited theatrical release courtesy of ITN, we've already had the pleasure of sharing questions with one of the film's guest stars, actor Matthias Hues in which he delves deeply into his career history, progression and plans for the future. The same goes for Loken who now takes center stage in this week's interview following Hues which also briefly highlights something interesting about the new movie, as well as a little about herself in the years since making strides as the formidable cybernetic supervillain in Terminator …
It wasn't made clear just to what capacity actress Jeeja Yanin's role in Jesse Johnson's new movie, Triple Threat, would extend at the time when we broke the exclusive back in March. Needless to say that mystery now comes to an end with the Raging Phoenix and Chocolate star donning some serious tactical gear in a new promo photo featuring herself among the antagonists for the new Asian action movie currently in production in Thailand.
Yanin's cohorts as seen below include Ron Smoorenburg and Scott Adkins, Michael Bisping and Michael Jai White outlining the murderous cartel from which leading action stars Tony Jaa, Iko Uwais and Tiger Chen must protect a billionaire's daughter, played by none other than Celina Jade. SC Films International's own Mike Selby is producing along with Mike Gabrawy and Gary Hamilton of Arclight Films. Actor Chen is also producing the film as will Elliot Tong and Ying Ye with Seng Stunt comprising the stunt team and Tim Man serving as …
EXCLUSIVE: The week is not without its exasperation at times as I gather a good share of stunt reels, demos and shortfilms for weekly installments of The Hit List. Challenging, sure, but it certainly guarantees some of the most fun I have every week and frankly what makes it so enjoyable are some of the projects and creators themselves, especially if I vouched for them personally. With filmmaker and action director Eric Nguyen in this instance, I'd gladly do that ten times over. Fall back to late 2015 when Nguyen presented martial arts fans with the 16-minute action comedy, Of Martial Arts And Men, pitting Lunar Stunts principles, actors Irvin Nguyen and Mickey Arce at the center of an underdog tale about about a struggling martial arts teacher's last ditch effort to save his school with the help of his newest student. The shortfilm is already one of a multitude of projects comprising the body of work left now in Nguyen's wake as a director on the independent scene and with…
