Getting people psyched up for the new 24 series, 24: Live Another Day, may strike many people as something along the lines of Coke commercials. At this point, are you really selling to anyone? We all know whether or not we’re interested in Coke.
Still, despite the idea that pulling in the completely uninitiated may be a questionable pursuit, Fox is pretty clear on the idea that it wants to make sure it doesn’t miss anyone. The new teaser doesn’t exactly give you a lot to go on, perhaps in a way similar to the idea that Coke commercials don’t exactly explain the product. But, it does at least give you the impression that it may pull off the difficult and dangerous attempt of standing next to the previous entries. I’m not absolutely convinced that this is a game we can keep playing, but the trailer looks good. »

Jack Bauer, the special agent who has saved the world time and again on Fox’s 24, may well be remembered as Kiefer Sutherland’s signature role, and that’s saying something. This year’s news that Bauer would return to the airwaves in 24: Live Another Day was surprising enough – then reports that the format will be changed to a 12-episode format threw fans for a bit of a loop.
We’ve had a good run of updates too: the new series (technically the show’s 9th season) will be set in London, where Jack must prevent “an unthinkable terrorist attack that could change the world forever.” Live Another Day will feature the return of many characters, including Chloe O’Brien (Mary Lynn Rajskub), Audrey Raines (Kim Raver) and James Heller (William Devane). New faces include Yvonne Strahovski (Dexter), Giles Matthey (Jobs), Gbenga Akinnagbe (The Wire), Michael Wincott (The Crow »

Jack Bauer is back and stuff is blowing up, that’s more or less the message we’ve gathered from the four teasers for 24: Live Another Day that aired during tonight’s Super Bowl. The highly anticipated “event” series, a sequel to 24‘s eight year run on Fox, will follow a fugitive Jack Bauer sucked back into the fight against global terror while in London. Many key cast members from the series are returning, including Kiefer Sutherland, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Kim Raver and William Devane, but what trouble will they get up to? Let’s find out.
Doesn’t offer much, does it? Then again, shooting just began on the miniseries in London, so we’ll likely have to wait a bit longer to see any significant footage.
Here’s the official plot summary, it should provide a few more details.

2) Eskrima, Arnis and Kali are umbrella terms for the traditional martial arts of the Philippines ("Filipino Martial Arts," or Fma) that emphasize weapon-based fighting with sticks, knives and other bladed weapons, and various improvised weapons.
It also includes hand-to-hand combat, joint locks, grappling and weapon disarming techniques.
More and more, martial arts action sequences are becoming integral to genre filmmaking. From the "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" series (1997) and Blade (1998) to The Hulk (2003) and Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004), we’re seeing more and more cinematic heroes who are kickin’ ass.

Fans of 24 have been patiently waiting for the series to receive a proper conclusion ever since season 8 ended on a cliffhanger way back in 2010. For years, a big screen continuation was promised, but numerous attempts to bring Jack Bauer back to life failed again and again (everything from script issues to Kiefer Sutherland being unhappy with the amount of money Fox were offering were given as the reason why).
Well, following last year’s announcement that a 12 episode event series was being planned, we now know that 24: Live Another Day will debut (in the Us at least) with a special two-hour premiere on Monday, May 5th. The official press release also confirms earlier reports that it will be both set and shot in London, with the focus again on Jack as “he attempts to thwart an unthinkable terrorist attack that could change the world forever.”

In 1994, actor Brandon Lee, son of the legendary Bruce Lee, was tragically shot and killed. This was no act of criminal violence; the trigger was pulled by an actor on set during the filming of Alex Proyas’ supernatural revenge-thriller The Crow, an adaptation of James O’Barr’s comic. A dummy bullet trapped in the gun was overlooked when blank cartridges were being inserted – a mistake, but one which would make The Crow Lee’s last film. Script changes, clever editing and digital effects were used to complete the film without its lead actor, coincidentally giving the entire film a strange, melancholic air when the viewer is aware of Lee’s death.
3 sequels followed the highly-praised original, all of which received ‘meh’ responses. A Canadian television series, The Crow: Stairway To Heaven, was also produced, during which another accidental death occurred when an unexpected explosion killed stuntman Marc Akerstream. Now, »

The reboot of The Crow has moved into preproduction and the anticipation of this is mixed. The comic on which The Crow is based is dark and intense and the film adaptation with Brandon Lee is pretty different from the source material in many ways but has a strong following as well. To then remake The Crow is wrought with potential problems not only those inherent to any remake or reimagining of a loved original but also the question of where to take the story without Brandon Lee. Reboot star Luke Evans says the comic will be respected with this reboot. »
Not only have attempts to continue the franchise outside the original 1994 film met with bad reviews and poor box-office, the first film was made famous for the death of its lead star Brandon Lee midway through production.
Welsh actor Luke Evans steps into the shoes of the character of resurrected rock star Eric Draven for this outing. With the project in pre-production ahead of filming to begin shortly, Evans spoke with Rcn TV this week to explain what those involved in this incarnation are trying to do:
"Well, we just want to be as authentic and loyal to the original comic as possible, and that means the story will be different. It’ll be different from what people are expecting.

I've made known my reservations about The Crow remake before, I won't bore you with a long spiel again. Short version: the original was a classic, holds deep meaning for me personally, and shouldn't be touched. One thing that does soften my opinions about it is that it is said to be much closer to the source material, and not just a re-hash of the original (the comic's creator James O'Barr has signed on as consultant), meaning the more supernatural concepts of the comic, such as the Skull Cowboy (a guide to lead character Eric Draven, who had scenes shot for the original which were ultimately cut), made make an appearance. Red Carpet News TV caught up with Luke Evans, who will be stepping in to lead role made famous by Brandon Lee, who had a few things to say about the direction of the movie, and how it plans »

Fans of Brandon Lee's 1994 cult classic "The Crow" may have worried that the upcoming reboot of the comic would sully the memory of their beloved movie. But Luke Evans, the actor tasked with playing Lee's iconic role of Eric Draven, is quick to assuage those fears.
In an interview this week with Red Carpet News, Evans discussed the reboot and how filmmakers are handling the intense pressure from fans of the original film. The first step is distancing itself from the 1994 flick.
"We just want to be as authentic and loyal to the original comic as possible, and that means the story will be different," Evans told the site, adding that the new movie would defy expectations while remaining respectful of its origins. " ... It's not about us ripping off the Brandon Lee movie. That stands alone as a brilliant piece of cult film and a great performance. But we're going back to the book, »

Whenever remakes of classic or well-loved films get put in development, the cast and production team often have to spend a lot of time defending the very concept of the remake and making promises not to infringe on what has gone before. Such is the case with F. Javier Gutiérrez’s upcoming version of The Crow, a particularly sensitive property to return to as lead actor Brandon Lee died during the filming of the 1994 original.
Several actors have circled or been rumored for the role of resurrected rock star Eric Draven during The Crow‘s long development cycle, but The Hobbit actor Luke Evans was the only one that stuck. As The Crow heads into ...
