If there’s ever a phrase that will have me instantly reaching for my wallet it’s “a Scott Adkins film…” Honestly, nine times out of ten I will buy an Adkins film without so much as seeing a trailer. Why? Well because for me, Adkins is keeping the Dtv dream alive, picking up the action hard-man mantle from 90s pioneers like Jeff Speakman, Olivier Gruner, Gary Daniels and in particular Jeff Wincott, one of the only other true action heroes to have the same perfect blend of fighting skills, charisma and acting chops as Adkins.
Eliminators sees Adkins re-team with his Green Street 3 director James Nunn (who also co-directed the fab British thriller Tower Block
Daniel O’Reilly, aka controversial comedy character Dapper Laughs, has wrapped shooting on his debut feature film as an actor, the vampire comedy Fanged Up.

It’s 1985… and in a country dominated by Soccer, Rugby, Cricket, and Fish n’ Chips, one man risks everything to play American Football.
My knowledge of American Football does not extend very far. Aside from a few often confusing games of John Madden on the Sega Megadrive (Genesis to our American cousins) I’ve never really engaged with the sport. However competitive sport all boils down to the same thing really. Whether your passionate about football (soccer) or cricket or professional tiddly winks (please tell me someone, somewhere does that professionally!) the passion with which you follow said sport, or a team within that sport rings true for most fans.

Chance iN has acquired Ab Negative for Japan from Jinga Films.
Neil Horner’s crime thriller stars Vincent Regan, Seb Castang, Robert Cavanagh and Stephen Marcus, and follows two hit men who become the subject of a sadistic game of revenge.
Jinga’s Julian Richards commented: “Ab Negative combines classic British gangster tropes with an intricate plot more typical of American crime thrillers. It may look like another Lock Stock but it has more in common with Reservoir Dogs and The Usual Suspects.”
Ab Negative has also been picked up by Invincible Pictures for North America, who are planning a theatrical release in April 2015.
The modern British gangster movies are strange beasts, and I admit I do have a weakness for them. With acting that is often questionable and stories that tend to be on the sillier side of crime thrillers they have a charm that can even survive a Danny Dyer starring role (that was a joke, don’t bite my head off). The Smoke, to be fair, only takes a gentle stroll into the British gangster movie style, though it does feature some actors that you’ve seen in them before, and more bizarrely more than its fair share of soap stars too.
