Photo Gallery for Donnie Yen's Iceman Cometh 3D

Donnie Yen is currently shooting his new film Iceman Cometh 3D, which is a remake of Yuen Biao and Yuen Wah's 1989 action flick. The story spans from China's Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644) to modern day Hong Kong. It is being shot in 3D and easily one of Donnie's most ambitious projects to date. The production has not been easy; however, as difficulties such as the failure to get government approval to film some scenes on Tsing Ma Bridge and challenges associated with shooting in 3D have led to a prolonged shoot and escalating production costs, with some reports saying the budget of the film has already doubled from what was initially planned. It appears that the part that is based in Hong Kong has finally been...

King Of Kung Fu:Top 10 Kickers

This is my top 10 favorite kickers in Kung Fu cinema. It is just my personal opinion as there are many great performers out there with amazing ability also. I hope everyone likes my top 10 and please feel free to leave comments at the bottom of the page.

10.Jean Claude Van Damme

Jean Claude is one of the best kickers i have seen out of the Asian movie market. His jumping spin kicks are brilliant, hitting with speed and power, which would take anyone’s head off. Van Damme was also a former member of the Belgium Team that won the European Championships in 1979 in Brussels.

Some of Van Dammes best kicking skills can be watched in movies such as No Retreat, No Surrender, Bloodsport, Kickboxer, Lionheart, Double Impact, The Quest and so on. He recently starred as the main villain in The Expendables 2, which he did a great job,

Donnie yen starts filming “Iceman Cometh 3D”

Kung Fu megastar Donnie yen as just recently starting filming the remake of the 1989 Yuen Biao movie “The Iceman Cometh” which will be shot in 3D.

The movie will see Donnie take on the role that Yuen Biao did so well in 1989, which also starred Maggie Cheung and Yuen Wah, but the cast for the latest movie will include Simon yam, Wang Baoqiang and Eva Huang. A few months back the director of the movie claimed Yuen Biao will make a surprise cameo and also fight Donnie yen, but nothing was mentioned about this in the last few weeks.

The budget for the movie is $150 million (Us), so we should expect some big action sequences and great fight scenes and if the remake is anything like the original, then be ready for a great movie.

The Iceman Cometh 3D” revolves around a Captain America-like character portrayed by Yen. The

Lam Ching Ying Vs The Dead: Top 10 Movies

Lam Ching Ying is my favorite star in any Horror movie, weather it be taking on hopping vampires or just plain old spirits, no one does it better than lam.

His roles in the Mr.Vampire movies show his skills as an actor, with great comic timing which goes well with his serious acting side, which we dont normally get to see on screen. This role would make him, not just a big star in Asia but also worldwide as the master of Vampire killers.

I hope you enjoy my top 10 list and please feel free to write your own favorites in the comments box at the bottom of the page.
