When the slate of shows set to premiere during the 2013-2014 television season were announced, one of the more intriguing shows was the Fox series Almost Human. Created by J.H. Wyman and produced by J.J. Abrams, the show set in the future had Karl Urban and Michael Ealy as cop partners, but with a twist; Ealy was to play an android. With the show’s first season finale airing earlier this week, impressions about the show could now be fully formed. Unfortunately, the first season revealed a show unable to decide what it wanted to be, and was ultimately a letdown, due to a number of problems.
Almost Human has gotten a few things right, chief among them the casting. Giving the role of Dorian the android to Michael Ealy, in particular, is a fantastic choice that has made for enjoyable moments every week. Ealy is »

Ex-mma fighter Gina Carano had dabbled in acting a bit before 2011, but it was Steven Soderbergh’s Haywire that really made her name in the world of action cinema. The director wasn’t the only recognizable name on the picture as he made sure to surround his star in the making with a cast that included Michael Douglas, Ewan McGregor, Channing Tatum, Antonio Banderas, and Michael Fassbender. It wasn’t a big hit by any means, and no one was impressed with Carano’s acting abilities, but action fans took note and looked forward to whatever Hollywood would offer her next. That whatever turned out to be a supporting role in Fast & Furious 6 and a guest spot on Fox’s Almost Human. If you saw Haywire then you know that’s a bullshit waste of an impressive talent right there. Fortunately, that dry-spell is coming to an end this year as Carano finally gets a second »

Former mixed martial arts fighter Gina Carano spent years beating up her opponents in the ring before finally becoming a bona fide action star in Steven Soderbergh’s 2011 thriller Haywire. The groundwork had been perfectly laid out; her looks, femininity, and physicality along with a built in fanbase made her an attractive candidate for action movies. Haywire was a critical and mild commercial success, but mostly functioned as a (very successful) platform for introducing the world to Gina Carano, action star.
What happens though when Carano is expected to carry the load of a film that doesn’t have the benefit of being directed by someone as gifted as Steven Soderbergh? That’s the question of the day as the first trailer for In the Blood has been released and it’s hard to not be more than a little underwhelmed.
We get to see Carano running around some unnamed »

Damn. You don’t wanna be messin’ with Gina Carano in John Stockwell’s “In the Blood.” Girl’s got the flying knees and elbows going on! Check out your first trailer for the actioner “In the Blood,” starring the former Mma champ as one pissed off woman looking for her missing husband. I don’t know who should be more afraid — the bad guys, or her husband when she finds him. The only thing I’m not a fan of? It appears Stockwell is using some kind of HD camera for the action scenes. I’m not a big fan of that. It makes the film look kind of cheap, like something kids put together in their backyard, but maybe that’s just me. Gina Carano stars as Ava, a trained fighter with a dark past. When her new husband (Cam Gigandet) vanishes during their Caribbean honeymoon, Ava uncovers »
New trailer time. One of the best female action stars to grace our screens over the past few years is former Mma star Gina Carano and here she is in one of her first lead roles of her career. In The Blood is being billed as the female Taken, and when you read the official synopsis below, you’ll see why. Love Gina Carano, and love the fact that she’s turning into the Cynthia Rothrock for today’s generation. Google her kids.
Gina Carano stars as Ava, a trained fighter with a dark past. When her new husband (Cam Gigandet) vanishes during their Caribbean honeymoon, Ava uncovers a violent underworld of conspiracy in the middle of an island paradise. Armed with a deadly set of skills, Ava sets out to discover the truth — and to take down the men she thinks are responsible for his abduction, one by one. »

You’d think people would know better than to mess with Gina Carano, but if they didn’t, Gina Carano wouldn’t have any movies to star in. The Haywire star’s latest outing is In the Blood, in which she plays a newlywed determined to uncover the truth about the disappearance of her husband (Cam Gigandet). Glowering men like […] »

If we learned anything from Haywire, it’s that you really, truly don’t want to piss off a character played by Gina Carano. So we pity the fools who decide to kidnap her husband and demand a ransom in her new action thriller, In The Blood. It's just put its first trailer up at Apple.In this one, Carano stars as Ava, a trained fighter who is trying to put her dark past behind her and embrace a fresh start. But when her new husband (Cam Gigandet) vanishes during their Caribbean honeymoon, Ava uncovers a violent underworld of conspiracy in the middle of an island paradise.Far from collapsing into grief and fear, Ava instead pulls a Liam Neeson special and, armed with a deadly set of skills, sets out to discover the truth. One by one, she’ll take down the men she thinks are responsible for his abduction, »
Though she first made a big pop culture splash as one of the new "American Gladiators" on NBC, mixed martial artist Gina Carano has become an impressive action starlet in films like Haywire and Fast & Furious 6. Now she's on her own again with In the Blood, another action thriller which sees Carano playing a trained fighter with a dark past. Suddenly, she finds herself caught up in a conspiracy on a tropical island when her husband vanishes on their honeymoon. And so, Carano is off to bust skulls, find her husband, and figure out just what is going on. It doesn't look very good, but Carano kicks ass. Watch below! Here's the first trailer for John Stockwell's In the Blood, originally from Apple: In the Blood is directed by John Stockwell (Blue Crush, Dark Tide) and written by James Robert Johnson & Bennett Yellin (Joy Ride 2: Dead Ahead).

The first trailer and poster for John Stockwell's In the Blood, starring Gina Carano, are now available for you to enjoy. The actioner finds Carano's character on a violent path to track down the people responsible for kidnapping her husband during a tropical vacation. The interesting thing about this first look at In the Blood isn't so much the plot (we've seen similar stories in decades of male-fronted action films), but the fact that the gender roles have been inverted. You can see for yourself after the jump, but Carano isn't just playing the action star - she's the real deal. Also starring Cam Gigandet, Luis Guzmán, Amaury Nolasco, Ismael Cruz Cordoba, Treat Williams, Stephen Lang, and Danny Trejo, In the Blood opens April 4th. Hit the jump to check out the first trailer and poster. A while back, we talked to Carano about In the Blood during her »

While fans of mixed martial arts were familiar with Gina Carano, her breakout role in the 2011 Steven Soderbergh feature Haywire garnered her a number of fans in the film community as well. While she has been subsequently seen in supporting roles in Fast & Furious 6 and the tv series Almost Human, many were excited to learn that she would be taking on another leading role in her latest project. Titled In The Blood, the film is directed by John Stockwell, who works from a script by Bennett Yellin and James Robert Johnston. Carano stars in the movie alongside Danny Trejo, Stephen Lang, Amaury Nolasco, and Luis Guzman, and the first trailer has now been released. The trailer can be seen below.

“When thinking of breakout performers, we rarely give action stars their due credit. We swoon when Tom Cruise runs down a building or does his own fights, but when a newcomer hits the scene we just shrug our shoulders. So let’s take a moment to give Gina Carano some well deserved credit – when Steven Soderbergh was looking for the [...] »

It has been three years since Mma star Gina Carano stepped out of the ring and kicked ass on the big screen, with her first leading role in Steven Soderbergh's "Haywire." Since then, she hasn't rushed into the movie biz, only banking a role in "Fast & Furious 6" in the interim. But now she's back as the leading lady with "In The Blood" and the first trailer is here. Co-starring Luis Guzman, Danny Trejo and Stephen Lang, the film follows Ava, a newlywed whose husband disappears while they are on their honeymoon in the Caribbean. Little did they know the bride was Gina Carano. As you might expect, the grieving wife passionately and recklessly pursues the men she believes kidnapped and killed him, uncovering a conspiracy along the way. Basically, your standard genre stuff which is mostly a format to allow Carano to lay waste to a variety of bad guys, »

Just yesterday, we brought you images and details on the new action movie In The Blood starring Gina Carano. A lot of comments called it a gender-reversed Taken and now that the official trailer is here, that seems to be a pretty spot on comparison. While the production values seem to be mired in the direct to home entertainment range, In The Blood does seem to be a nice showcase for Carano's brand of ass-kicking, with a nice range of supporting actors including Stephen Lang, Danny Trejo, »
