Five Navy SEALs, $300 million in lost gold, one incredible mission – what could possibly go wrong? Quite a lot, as the explosive first trailer for crime caper Renegades attests.
Placing the Oscar-winning J.K. Simmons in the role of a no-nonsense army chief – seen here barking orders in a manner that evokes memories of Whiplash – Renegades takes place in 1995 Sarajevo, where a crack team of SEALs fly off the radar in a bid to recover a stash of lost Nazi gold from the icy depths of the Bosnian lake. Complicating matters is the fact that they’re deep within enemy territory, setting the stage for nail-biting chase sequences, firefights, and plenty of explosive set-pieces.
Hatched by Taken‘s Luc Besson and Richard Wenk, EuropaCorp is the studio behind the action-thriller, and even from the reveal trailer alone, it’s clear that Besson and co. are looking to tap into a similar over-the-top »

Renegades is about a team of Navy SEALs on assignment in war-torn Europe who discover a treasure of gold at the bottom of a lake — rumored to be worth hundreds of millions of dollars. In an effort to help the locals, they go rogue and engineer a heist to retrieve the gold and return it to its rightful owners. But in a deadly turn of events, they are detected by the enemy and left with only 10 hours to carry out their mission.
Renegades is set for release on February 3rd, 2017. »

"We're talking about a major unauthorized operation." EuropaCorp USA has revealed a trailer for an action heist thriller titled Renegades, formerly known as The Lake. The film tells the sort-of true story of a team of Navy SEALs who try to find long-lost Nazi gold at the bottom in a lake during the Bosnian War in the 90s. The film's cast includes J.K. Simmons, as well as Sullivan Stapleton, Ewen Bremner, Sylvia Hoeks, Diarmaid Murtagh, Charlie Bewley, Clemens Schick and Dimitri Leonidas. I enjoy the way they're selling this as a heist movie, but it's also one helluva gnarly trailer with some serious action scenes. Dive in. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Steven Quale's Renegades, originally from Yahoo: In Renegades, a group of Navy SEALs attempt to solve a long- orgotten mystery while uncovering an immense treasure hidden in a lake in war-torn Serbia in 1995.

Bachelor Games, 2016.
Directed by Edward McGown.
A group of friends on a stag weekend in the mountains of Argentina are picked off by a dark force called “The Hunter”, but all is not what it seems.
With a title like Bachelor Games, the first assumption that sprung to mind (going into this one blindly) was that this would be one of those terrible spoof films akin to Epic Movie (Or Date Movie, or the countless other terrible films of that ilk). It’s an awful title to be honest, but regardless, my assumption based on the title was wrong. Actually, Bachelor Games is a horror and comedy with an equilibrium between both.
Henry is about to get married. He takes his best friends out for a spot of debauchery and hiking in Argentina. Along with Henry are his best man Leon, »

When one thinks of a Bachelor party, we don’t think about running for our lives in the Andes desert by a creature only known as “The Hunter”; however, in Edward McGown’s latest film Bachelor Games (hitting VOD on July 8th), that’s exactly what happens. To learn more about why the groomsmen are being stalked, Icons of Fright sat down with the best man, Charlie Bewley (who plays Leon) to learn more about the film, his character, and what attracts “The Hunter” to his prey…
Thank you so much for talking with me today Charlie! First and foremost, for those who may not be familiar with Bachelor Games can you tell us a bit about the film and your role in it?

Hard to believe that July is already upon us, but before we all take off for some summer shenanigans over this long holiday weekend, here’s a look at all the great VOD titles coming our way this month, including one of my favorite films I’ve seen in 2016, Mickey Keating’s brilliant Carnage Park, which is being released by IFC Midnight.
Marauders, the latest from Steven C. Miller (The Aggression Scale, Silent Night) is also making its VOD premiere on July 1st, along with Magnet Releasing's Satanic, and Gravitas Ventures wants us to indulge in some Bachelor Games on July 8th. The haunting and beautiful Japanese animated film, Belladonna of Sadness—something all genre fans should experience at least once in their lifetimes (it’s amazing)—arrives on VOD on July 12th, and the revenge thriller Angels and Outlaws will be released on July 15th.
