Afm: Golden Network Kicks Off With Jackie Chan Movie Pair

4 November 2015 6:59 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hong Kong’s Golden Network has picked up international rights to the next two independent films starring Jackie Chan.

It will handle $65 million action adventure “Kung Fu Yoga,” which is now in production under the direction of Stanley Tong, and the previously announced action comedy “Railroad Tigers.”

Chan, who alternates between studio and independent productions, remains a potent brand both in Chinese markets and in international territories. His last indie pictures, “Skiptrace” and “Dragon Blade,” carried budgets estimated at $32 million and $65 million, respectively, and were widely sold. “Dragon Blade” grossed $117 million in China in a Chinese New Year release.

Starring Chan, India’s Sonu Sood, Hong Kong’s Aarif Rahman, K-pop star Lay, and China’s Zhang Yi Xing and Miya Muqi, “Kung Fu Yoga” sees a Chinese archaeologist team up with an Indian professor to search for ancient treasures scattered between China, India and the Middle East.

The Raymond Chow And Golden Harvest Era (Part 2)

6 October 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | AsianMoviePulse | See recent AsianMoviePulse news »

(1981-1989 – The Three Dragons)

After the early 1980’s, Golden Harvest started to branch out into the modern-day world leaving behind the Kung Fu cinema age and progressing into something massive. From 1981 onwards, Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao (The Three Dragons) were about to embark on a sensational journey, progressing from there Kung Fu genre into modern-day Martial Arts and stunt work, something Shaw Brothers were left behind and Golden Harvest was to be the new global company.

Jackie Chan back then headed to the United states to try to break into the international market, but the movies he appeared in didn’t really take off and Jackie was also disappointed with the filming of The Big Brawl. Jackie felt he never had chance to show off his action choreography and wasn’t given the space to add his world of experience to the movie. Although it was Directed »

The top 20 underappreciated films of 1984

8 September 2015 6:21 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The year that gave us Gremlins, Ghostbusters and The Temple Of Doom also gave us these 20 underappreciated movies...

It's been said that 1984 was a vintage year for movies, and looking back, it's easy to see why. The likes of Ghostbusters and Gremlins served up comedy, action and the macabre in equal measure. James Cameron's The Terminator cemented Arnold Schwarzenegger's star status and gave us one of the greatest sci-fi action movies of the decade.

This was also the year where the Coen brothers made their screen debut with the stunning thriller Blood Simple, and when the Zucker brothers followed up Airplane! with the equally hilarious Top Secret! And we still haven't even mentioned Beverly Hills Cop, This Is Spinal Tap, The Karate Kid, Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom and the unexpectedly successful romantic comedy, Splash. Then there was Milos Forman's sumptuous period drama Amadeus, which »

Second ‘Jem’ trailer is making me tired…just so, so tired

11 August 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Look. I tried to give this movie the benefit of the doubt. When the first “Jem and the Holograms” trailer dropped, I was tentatively on board. Jem’s declaration of “Showtime Synergy” gave me hope that there was more to this adaptation than meet the eye. But then this “Earth to Echo” meets “Batteries Not Included” home movie recorder knock-off showed up calling itself Synergy and now all bets are off. There is just enough of the original “Jem” cartoon here to be recognizable. You can see the pieces being put into place for the love “triangle” between Jerrica, Jem, and Rio. You can reasonable extrapolate that by movie’s end, Jem will have fixed her friendships and ousted Juliette Lewis’s character (Erica Raymond) as the head of Starlight Music. If you squint, you might catch a glimpse of an homage to the Starlight House foster home. But by »

Have kung fu films lost their punch?

28 April 2015 12:57 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Since its heyday, kung fu seems to be giving way to other action genres, but could it be making a comeback?

There was a time when everyone was indeed kung fu fighting. Films belonging to the genre, made popular in the 1970s by the late Bruce Lee, helped to boost Hong Kong cinema, not to mention the careers of various Chinese actors such as Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung and Jet Li. However, in recent years, it seems that the kung fu film is losing the raw bad-assery that fans have grown up watching. As martial arts films are now evolving to feature more computer animation and culture rather than pure, unadulterated violence, has kung fu lost its touch?

The first kung fu film dates back to the late 1930s, when folk heroes and famed martial artists Fong Sai-Yuk and Wong Fei-Hung were immortalised for the first time (they would »
