Northmen: A Viking Saga - Badass Full Trailer

15 August 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A full trailer has been released for an extremely awesome looking viking film called Northmen: A Viking Saga. I'm incredibly excited about seeing this movie. I love that the first part of this trailer features an old Viking wrestling down a horse and its rider with his bare hands. The trailer only get more badass from there! 

A band of Vikings are stranded behind enemy lines on the coast of Alba as their longboat goes down in a dreadful storm. Their only chance of survival is to find a path to the Viking settlement, Danelag, traversing an unfamiliar and hostile land they have never known. The journey becomes a race for their lives when the King of Alba sends his most feared mercenaries after them. But when the Vikings meet a kind Christian Monk who preaches with his sword, the hunters become the hunted as the Vikings set deadly traps, »

The Transporter Legacy Gets Title, Release Date

4 August 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

While Jason Statham searches for an appropriate action vehicle in China, one of his former franchises drives on without him. The Transporter Legacy, starring Ed Skrein (pictured), will motor into North American theaters on March 6, 2015, according to Variety. It will be the first release from EuropaCorp USA, a new distribution entity formed earlier this year. Camille Delamarre, who helmed Brick Mansions, the English-language remake of 2004's Banlieue 13, is directing the new installment in the series. Skrein also has roles in the upcoming action flicks Northmen: A Viking Saga and Tiger House, so we'll see if The Transporter Legacy can give his career a boost in a similar manner to how Statham's career was boosted by his lead performance in The Transporter back...

Statham-less new Transporter movie set for March release

3 August 2014 10:58 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

There's a new Transporter film coming out in 2015! It, er, does not have Jason Statham in it...

Amongst the projects on the to-do list for The Statham is not a brand new Transporter movie. However, that doesn't mean there isn't going to be one, as plans are pressing ahead for a new trilogy of films in the series.

The new Transporter movies will form a prequel trilogy (yep, there's a track record of those working out well), and Ed Skrein, best known for Game Of Thrones, is taking the title role. The first movie in the new trilogy, The Transporter Legacy, is set for release on March 6th 2015 in the Us.

It's going to be directed by Camile Delamarre, who helmed Brick Mansions. Bill Collage and Adam Cooper have penned the screenplay.

Transporter 4 Gets Title And Release Date

3 August 2014 5:02 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

First announced at Cannes last year, Luc Besson and his EuropaCorp accomplices are returning to the Transporter franchise with a new trilogy, sadly not this time to feature Jason Statham. Ed Skrein will instead be taking the driving seat in the first of the new movies, directed by Camille Delamarre (Brick Mansions). And with shooting underway as of last month, we now have a title and - for the Us at least - a release date. The Transporter Legacy will be out in the States in March next year, via the newly minted EuropaCorp USA.That moniker seems to be a deliberate and mischievous nod to the Bourne franchise, but also makes no sense: it suggests an inheritor of the Statham mantle, when the film is actually a prequel with Skrein playing the same character, a young Frank Martin. Martin is, you'll recall, the driver who never changes the deal »

2 August 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) EuropaCorp’s "Transporter" pre-boot, "Transporter Legacy," will arrive in North America March 6. Variety reports the first film in EuropaCorp’s planned prequel trilogy will star "Game of Thrones" actor Ed Skrein as “a top driver and mercenary who teams with the leader of a group of deadly assailants to take down a group of ruthless Russian human traffickers.” Skrein plays a younger Frank Martin, who was played by Jason Statham in the previous "Transporter" films. Skrein is best known to American audiences for his turn as Daario Naharis during the third season of "Game of Thrones." He left the series for unknown reasons, and was replaced in the fourth season by actor Michiel Huisman. The new "Transporter" film will be directed by Camille Delamarre and written by Bill Collage and Adam Cooper. »

The Transporter Legacy Set For 2015 Release

2 August 2014 11:44 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

EuropaCorp’s Transporter trilogy truly marked the arrival of Jason Statham as a bona fide action star, and now the franchise is getting a reboot – albeit without Statham. However, The Transporter Legacy, as the fourth film in the series has recently been titled, may launch a new actor to action stardom.

Ed Skrein, known for playing Daario Naharis on HBO’s hit fantasy series Game of Thrones, will be taking on the role of Frank Martin, who is called The Transporter because he’s the best driver and mercenary money can buy. In The Transporter Legacy, Frank meets Anna (Loan Chabanol), the leader of a group of criminals. The pair team up and attempt to take down a group of ruthless Russian human traffickers who have also kidnapped Frank’s father (to be played by “a prominent thesp”).

"The Transporter Legacy" Set For March 2015

2 August 2014 9:32 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The first in the upcoming proposed prequel trilogy to EuropaCorp's "Transporter" franchise has scored a March 6th 2015 release date in the United States.

Former "Game of Thrones" actor Ed Skrein plays a younger version of Jason Statham's Frank Martin, an ex-special forces type who will transport anything for a price and follows a very strict code.

Entitled "The Transporter Legacy," Camille Delamarre ("Brick Mansions") helms the French underworld-set film in which Frank crosses paths with Anna (Loan Chabanol), a crime boss who decides Frank is the man to take down a group of ruthless Russian human traffickers.

Anna takes Frank's father (Ray Stevenson) as leverage to ensure his cooperation and both of them are forced to work with Anna to bring the villains to justice.

Radivoje Bukvic, Gabriella Wright, Anatole Taubman and Tatiana Pajkovic also star. Bill Collage and Adam Cooper ("Exodus: Gods and Kings") penned the script.

The Transporter Legacy Hits Theaters Next Year

1 August 2014 6:51 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Jason Statham might no longer be behind the wheel as the Transporter, but Frank Martin still lives. Statham did his time as the heroic courier in three hit movies, but as he moved away, EuropaCorp has been planning on continuing to use the franchise. And now their plans have kicked in at full force. EuropaCorp has announced that March 16th, 2015 brings The Transporter Legacy to the big screen. The movie is the first in a trilogy and will bring us the early days of Martin leading up to the events of the original movie. It's being directed by Camille Delamarre, who made his debut this spring as the man behind Brick Mansions. Your new Frank Martin appears to be Ed Skrein, who Game Of Thrones fans might recognize as Daario Naharis. Presumably he'll be rocking Frank Martin's trademark bald dome, but here he is on the show in case »

1 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

What can we expect from Game Of Thrones season 5?

16 June 2014 4:34 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With season 4 not even cold in its grave, we take a spoiler-free look ahead to what Game Of Thrones season 5 has in store…


Warning: contains major spoilers for the season four finale, The Children, but designed to be safe for non A Song Of Ice And Fire readers.

“Season five gives me nightmares”. It may not be the most inspiring quote from Game Of Thrones co-showrunner David Benioff, but as A Song Of Ice And Fire readers will tell you, his fears aren’t unjustified.

Book four of George R.R. Martin’s series - A Feast For Crows, the events of which would ordinarily be adapted for season five - is easily the saga’s least popular volume. Were season five to follow it slavishly, we wouldn’t see fan favourites Tyrion Lannister, Daenerys Targaryen or Jon Snow back next year as none features in the fourth book. Instead, »
