Michael Jai White’s had himself a pretty funky movie career. He started out pretty well in “Spawn”, but seems to have gone into the direct-to-video route in recent years, with roles in “Undisputed 2″ and “Universal Solder: The Return”. His latest is “Blood and Bone”, and from the looks of the trailer, it looks like a bone-crunching action movie and ol Michael Jai White seems to have boned up (no pun intended) on his moves. This thing looks good despite its Dtv pedigree, which is your usual “underground fighting” movie cliche. Produced by Nick SImunek, Matthew Binns and Michael Mailer, directed by Ben Ramsey, and Starring Michael Jai White, Blood & Bone is the story of a mysterious drifter named Isaiah Bone who falls into a mob controlled street fighting ring in the back alleys of Los Angeles. A post-modern Samurai movie, it blends the dangerous world of gangster controlled underground Mixed Martial Arts fighting, »

Dragonball Evolution Directed by: James Wong Written by: Ben Ramsey Starring: Justin Chatwin, Chow Yun-Fat, Emmy Rossum, Jamie Chung, James Marsters, Randall Duk Kim, Joon Park, Ernie Hudson Asian culture has had a massive influence on North America over the past decade and a half, to the point where nearly every popular children's animated series is now either being imported from Japan or created in the same art style, virtually every horror movie is required to have creepy children in it, and the majority of action movies made since The Matrix has tried to emulate the same slick martial arts choreography. Now the latest trend in Hollywood has producers trying to repackage some of the biggest Japanese animated series as live action films, and it seems only appropriate that Dragonball is one of the first to find its way to the big screen. Based on the manga by Akira Toriyama, »

One movie we haven't really heard from in a while is Dragonball Evolution, probably for good reason. But then again, the more I see of this, the more I wonder if I'm wrong in thinking that it looks so bad, and curious whether it indeed might just be a fun movie. Maybe it'll turn out better for people who aren't big fans of the original anime? Either way, today we've got a new French trailer for Dragonball Evolution courtesy of ComingSoon that shows a few new scenes and overall is just flashier than anything before. This trailer alone doesn't exactly push me in one way or another, but it is just cool to watch. Enjoy!
