New Welcome To The Jungle Trailer Lands

25 November 2013 5:02 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It's like the '80s never went away. Anything Arnold Schwarnegger can do*, Jean-Claude Van Damme can do, well, too. Seeing Arnie's latest get a promo, Jcvd has launched his riposte, Welcome To The Jungle, into the world. Here's the film's new trailer to check out.The premise, one that William Golding will be kicking himself for not coming up with, sees teambuilding coach Van Damme lead a group of white-collar types when their wilderness seminar gets a whole lot more wildernessy that they'd planned for. The good news? Jcvd is also a shit-kicking ex-soldier. The bad? He was a Marine, not a Foreign Legionnaire. We'd have preferred him to be a Foreign Legionnaire. Oh well. Among the imperilled deskbound types are Adam Brody, Rob Huebel, Kristen Schaal and Megan Boone, with Dennis Haysbert also popping up. In the midst of this Lord Of The Flies-like scenario it soon »

Nosher Powell obituary

26 April 2013 9:20 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Heavyweight boxer, James Bond stuntman and bodyguard to Hollywood stars

The abiding memory that millions around the world will have of Nosher Powell, who has died aged 84, is of him fighting in vain to save his aeroplane after it had been attacked by a seagull in Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines (1965). Gert Fröbe may have been the German officer in charge of the plane but it was Powell who, as the stuntman and double, ended up in the water.

Powell's first appearance as a stuntman was in Laurence Olivier's Henry V (1944). He also had small roles in David Lean's Oliver Twist (1948) and Cosh Boy (1953), with Joan Collins. In 1952 he was a boxer in Emergency Call, in which he fought the former world champion Freddie Mills. Powell had a decent if not outstanding boxing career himself, reaching No 3 in the British heavyweight rankings.

George Frederick Bernard Powell was born in Camberwell, »
