Penelope Joins Strong & Baron Cohen in 'Grimsby'

10 July 2014 2:56 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Penelope Cruz, the Spanish beauty that has appeared in films like Vanilla Sky, The Counselor, and Pirates of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, has agreed to join the cast of Sony's spy comedy Grimsby.

The film will center on a James Bond-esque super spy, played by Mark Strong (Green Lantern, Sherlock Holmes, Kick-Ass), who is forced to go into hiding in his hometown. There, he winds up having to team up with his soccer hooligan of a brother, who'll be played by Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat).

The film was written by Baron Cohen, Phil Johnston (Wreck-It Ralph), and Peter Baynham- who also co-wrote Borat and Bruno with Baron Cohen. 

Not much is known about any of the characters in the film, but we do know that Cruz will be joining a cast that also includes Rebel Wilson, Isla Fisher, Ian McShane, Scott Adkins, »

Penelope Cruz Joins Sacha Baron Cohen Comedy Grimsby

10 July 2014 10:04 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Today, the sizable cast of Sacha Baron Cohen’s spy comedy Grimsby continues to grow, with news that Oscar winner Penelope Cruz (Vicky Cristina Barcelona) has joined the cast in an important supporting role.

Though the specifics of Cruz’s role are officially being kept under wraps, insiders report that the actress is playing “a philanthropic corporate leader who may (or may not) be more than she seems.” Does this mean that Cruz could be playing the film’s big bad? That’s entirely possible, though Ian McShane is also in the cast, so he could be taking on the role of the main antagonist.

Grimsby stars Mark Strong as a James Bond-like secret agent who is forced to go into hiding in his hometown during a dangerous assignment. There, he’s forced to team up with his English football hooligan brother (Baron Cohen), who gets wrapped up in the action as well. »

Ridley Scott May Follow Exodus With A Movie About King David

9 July 2014 10:39 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It was only a matter of time before Hollywood came calling for that sweet, sweet Bible money. This year's flood of Christian films has been so strong (with Noah leading the pack), and it's about to intensify with this year's Ridley Scott-directed Exodus: Gods And Kings. And that working relationship is bearing fruit, as Scott and Fox are once again teaming up for the epic retelling of David and Goliath. Variety reports that Ridley Scott's Scott Free production company is reteaming with Fox to present David, a narrative about the Bible's King David. Scott's only on as a producer thus far, though the intention is for Scott to eventually direct, even if the busy director has several plans for future movies. Little-known Jonathan Stokes, who previously penned the Scott Adkins action film El Gringo, will grab the pen for this film, which reportedly will focus on the reign »

Scott Atkins and Dolph Lundgren Team up to Battle the “Shocate” Creature in Legendary, Hitting DVD/VOD July 29th!

23 June 2014 5:05 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Being a product of the ’80s, very few people make me as excited as Dolph Lundgren does. I grew up with I Come In Peace, The Punisher, Showdown In Little Tokyo, and every other film he was in. Yes, his recent output might be less than stellar, but it would be a lie if I said I wouldn’t watch the Dolph stand in front of a camera and make fart noises for an hour. Add up and coming action star Scott Adkins, The Expendables 2, Ninja II)  to the mix, and you’ve got what I think looks like a fun as hell, entertaining ride.  Two badasses, one monster,..and a trailer that has me on board. What do you friend fiends think? Will you be picking this one up, when it hits DVD/VOD/Pay-Per-View on July 29th, via Lionsgate?

In a Nutshell: Ninja - Shadow Of A Tear

13 May 2014 10:26 AM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

I'd like to start by apologising to Scott Adkins. I've been aware of his existence for several years now, but in truth, I've always dismissed him as a low-rent action star. For the record, he still is a low-rent action star, but isn't that how all the greats started out? The Expendables 2 should've been a bigger platform for Scott, he certainly outshone Van Damme in every conceivable way, and his bruising encounter with Jason Statham proved to be one of the films many unapologetic highlights. Ninja: Shadow of the Tear looks and sounds like the kind of movie I would usually avoid, but positive word of mouth steered me in the right direction. Thank you, positive word of mouth. The plot is inconsequential, but we'd better gloss over it anyway. Adkins stars as Casey Bowman, who returns home one day to find that somebody has killed his wife and unborn baby. »

DVD Review – Ninja: Shadow of a Tear (2013)

11 May 2014 11:13 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ninja: Shadow of a Tear, 2013.

Directed by Isaac Florentine.

Starring Scott Adkins, Kane Kosugi, Mika Hijii, Shun Sagata, Tim Man and Vithaya Pansringarm.

Synopsis:

Ninjitsu master Casey is back and out for revenge when his pregnant wife is murdered.

British action star Scott Adkins has seen his star gradually rise in the last few years. He’s a franchise star thanks to his turn as Uri Boyka in Undisputed 2 and 3 (a fourth is in the works), as well as jumping aboard another franchise in Universal Solider: Day Of Reckoning, and also getting his face on the big screen in The Expendables 2. These days it’s a tough job launching yourself as an action star, and maintaining a long career, but Adkins is hitting full steam and seems set to emulate some of the success of his older contemporaries.

I’m a huge fan of 2009′s Ninja, as my signed Blu-ray will atest, so it’s safe to say I was super-excited for the UK release of the sequel Ninja: Shadow of a Tear. Whereas the first film saw Scott Adkins titular hero Casey Bowman using his ninjutsu skills on the streets of New York, this film sees Casey return home from some late night shopping to find someone has brutally killed his wife Namiko (Mika Hijii) and their unborn child. Bereft, Casey has only one thing left to live for… revenge.

The only clues to Namiko’s killer are the barbed wire marks left around her neck. So, with the help of his trusted friend Nakabara »

Ebiri: The Protector 2 Betrays All the Tony Jaa Fans

2 May 2014 3:10 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Who will be our next big crossover martial-arts hero? Jackie Chan just turned 60, Jet Li is in a state of pseudo-retirement, Donnie Yen never really hit it big in the U.S., and Stephen Chow seems more interested in directing of late. There’s the intense and gifted Iko Uwais of The Raid movies, whose future bankability remains to be seen, and don’t count out Scott Adkins, the Brit who starred in the last, awesome Universal Soldier film. And then there’s Tony Jaa, who seemed ready to take over the mantle of International Ass-Kicking Superstar with his no-frills 2003 hit Ong-Bak, which saw him landing blows and breaking spines with such raw force that it seemed like a terrifying new era of no-holds-barred, no-strings action was being borne before our very eyes.The ensuing years, however, haven’t quite borne out that early promise. What once felt like stripped-down, »
