Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films Goes to Drafthouse Films

1 December 2011 2:25 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Drafthouse Films, the distribution arm of the world-famous Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, announced today the acquisition of all Us rights to Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films from world-wide sales agent Celluloid Nightmares. From acclaimed cult film documentarian Mark Hartley (Not Quite Hollywood), the film centers on the story of two Israeli-born, movie-obsessed cousins, Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus, who in pursuit of the "American dream" launched an indie studio that would produce over 120 exploitation films from 1979-1989 turning a renegade outfit into the proclaimed "seventh Hollywood major." The film is currently in pre-production in Australia with Producer Veronica Fury and Executive Producers Xyz Films. A theatrical release is being planned for late 2012 to coincide with a traveling roadshow retrospective of Cannon's seminal films.

Drafthouse Films Firing Up Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films

1 December 2011 10:55 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

For those of us who grew up during the decade of big hair and excess, just the mere sight of the Cannon Films logo is enough to conjure more than a boatload of nostalgia. Thanks to Drafthouse Films said boat is soon to be sailing our way!

Drafthouse Films Picks up Us Rights to Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story Of Cannon Films

1 December 2011 8:18 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I like that director Mark Hartley is out there making movies.  His previous films, Not Quite Hollywood and Machete Maidens Unleashed, went inside the sub-culture of cheap and dirty filmmaking that still provided entertaining genre fare.  However, his new film, Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films, finally brings him closer to Hollywood.  The movie explores the studio created by Israeli cousins Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus.  Their films were still quick, dirty, exploitative fare, but among their 120+ movies they released between 1979 – 1989 they cranked out Bloodsport, Breakin', Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo, American Ninja (and all four sequels), Over the Top, and Superman IV: The Quest for Peace.  That's just a slice of the trashy treasures they brought to the world. Drafthouse Films, the distribution arm of the Alamo Drafthouse, is planning "a theatrical release is being planned for late 2012 to coincide with a traveling roadshow retrospective of Cannon's seminal films. »

Jean-Claude Van Damme's 9 Greatest Moments

27 May 2011 5:00 AM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Oh, it's Jean-Claude Van Damme. Let's all get snarky and ironic.

F**k that.

Yeah, he's not winning any acting Oscars, but the Belgian kickboxer-turned-action star has entertained us more than 90% of his Hollywood peers. Fusing years of karate and kickboxing training with -- fine -- a slightly melodramatic acting style, he's made films like "Kickboxer," "Bloodsport" and "Double Impact" that have influenced a generation of martial arts movies and set the standard that many lesser imitators would follow.

In honor of his (presumably butt-kicking) role as Master Croc in "Kung Fu Panda 2," here's a look back at some of Jcvd's finest moments both onscreen and off.

9. Jcvd Shills for 'World of Warcraft'

We know this ad is in French, but thankfully we have a cheap, Parisian intern on staff. Play the video below and read along. Loosely translated, Van Damme is saying, "My name is Jean-Claude Van Damme »
