If you’re anything like us, then you’ve spent hours wondering just how many punches Jason Statham has thrown over his long career. Well wonder no longer, as YouTube channel Burger Fiction has compiled a super cut of every punch ever administered by the British action star. Proceeding roughly in chronological order through Statham’s long career (although some scenes are presented out of order), the supercut starts with Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels; showcases the numerous franchises he headlines such as The Transporter, and The Expendables; and culminates in his more recent villainous appearance in Furious 7. Obviously not all of his roles are featured, such as his Handsome Rob character from The Italian Job – who mostly stayed behind the wheel and never laid a hand on anybody – but most of his career is represented in some capacity. The video has everything: dramatic »
Yes, you read that correctly.
The last we heard about a Kindergarten Cop movie was back in June when it was revealed they were working on a reboot to the movie. Well it turns out that its now a sequel, and the the first images of Kindergarten Cop 2 have surfaced online, and sees Dolph Lundgren (Masters of the Universe, The Expendables) taking over from Arnold Schwarzenegger in the leading role.
Check out the photos below (via Manly Movie):
“The new Kindergarten cop is a leading man type with an Indian sidekick named Sanjit. They’re on the trail of a missing flash drive from the Federal Witness protection program. Somehow it’s wound up in a kindergarten class. Flimsy premise, but it puts him side by side with a beautiful teacher and they hit it off. There’s also bad guys involved– this time they’re Albanian.”

Another week, another story of a movie reboot. This time it centres on the big screen take on the Mortal Kombat franchise. The videogame series continues to flourish, and New Line Cinema is planning to resurrect the reasonably successful line of movies too.
Oren Uziel and Dave Callaham are putting the script together, with the pair previously having worked on Mortal Kombat Legacy and The Expendables respectively. And we now learn that James Wan is set to oversee the movie.
Wan is currently working on directing The Conjuring 2, having seen his most recent film, Fast & Furious 7, become one of the biggest grossing movies of all time. He's set to direct Aquaman for Warner Bros and Robotech for Sony next. Thus, he's only taking a producing role on Mortal Kombat. »
It looks like there.s no fatality that can keep the Mortal Kombat film franchise down. While there have been attempts to get the movies going again we haven.t seen anything on the big screen since 1997. Now however, there.s a big name involved in rebooting the movies who has earned himself a lot of Hollywood credibility recently. Furious 7 director James Wan is on board to produce the new film. The Tracking Board has the details that Wan, who directed the fifth highest grossing movie of all time, should be able to bring some new life to the perpetually stalled project. The movie is being written by David Callaham (The Expendables) and Oren Uziel, who wrote the short film Mortal Kombat: Rebirth which spawned the well-received web series Mortal Kombat: Legacy. The film will be a standalone reboot not connected to the previous films or the web series. »
New Line has been trying to get a new "Mortal Kombat" movie off the ground for years. Eventually, the studio settled for a web series that turned out to be successful. And now, there's a push to make the movie again. Today comes word that "Mortal Kombat" got a much needed boost by hiring James Wan (director of "Furious 7," "The Conjuring," "Insidious") to produce the film. The decision to bring Wan on board was due to the studio wanting "a departure from the mythology" with "darker, brutally real martial arts." The script is written by Oren Uziel ("Mortal Kombat: Legacy" web series) and Dave Callaham (The Expendables). It centers around a seemingly harmless guy who realizes his potential when he finds himself caught in the middle of a cross-dimensional battle between the warriors of Earth and the monsters of Outworld. Now, in order to stop the world from total destruction, »

The studio plans to release a game for phones and tablets by the end of 2016, which could coincide with the release of the fourth film in the franchise.
Lionsgate has not yet dated a fourth “Expendables.” It opened the previous three films — which starred Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Bruce Willis and Dolph Lundgren — in 2010, 2012 and 2014, with worldwide box office totaling nearly $800 million.
“We’re delighted to partner with the incredibly talented and successful Avi Lerner of Millennium Films and the innovative Eric Tan of Fifth Journey to expand the universe of ‘The Expendables,'” said Peter Levin, Lionsgate’s president of interactive ventures and games. “Combining a powerful brand, a global fanbase stretching from North America to China and cutting edge technology, ‘The Expendables’ is »

Can I get a "Hell yeah!" Wrestling fans should be rejoicing this morning as 2K has revealed that the one and only Stone Cold Steve Austin is the cover athlete for WWE 2K16 and will be featured throughout the game. Come inside to learn more.
I'm going to be honest here, wrestling just isn't what it used to be. I watched it all the time when I was younger, but over the last decade or so, haven't been able to get into it very much. For me, the highest point of the entertainment sport was the "Attitude" era, where The Rock and Stone Cold were prominent players along with other memorable wrestlers. So today's announcement that Stone Cold is on the cover of the new WWE 2K game, has me pretty giddy.

Since his role in the blockbusting ensemble piece The Expendables, Dolph Lundgren has been somewhat of a tour-de-force in the world of direct-to-market action flicks. From straight forward action movies like Hard Rush and A Certain Justice, to more fantastical films such Battle of the Damned and Legendary, Lundgren has been tolling away in the genre starring in films that, whilst not all are entirely successful, are ways apart from his pre-Expendables career.
The reason for his recent success, in this reviewers opinion, seems to be his willingness to share the limelight. Where once he may have demanded the mot screen time, a headline on the poster etc., these days his films are more about the ensembles within them. He’s starred alongside the likes of Vinnie Jones, Randy Couture, Cung Le (an underrated action star »

Jason Statham isn't one to say no to sequels (The Transporter series, The Expendables trilogy), so it doesn't come as a huge surprise that he will return as Deckard Shaw in Fast & Furious 8. Statham confirmed to Access Hollywood his character will be back for the Furious 7 sequel. I’m a newcomer, I just got invited to the party in this last one, so it’s nice to know... Read More »

Wamg was among members of the media and invited guests to witness the Grand Opening of Fast and Furious Supercharged, the latest movie-themed attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood. The presentation treated everyone to an extensive display of cars from the movies, a dance performance, speeches by top Universal execs and L.A.’s mayor, all topped off by an exciting assortment of live car stunts including a 90-foot jump through a billboard that caught us by surprise.
After the presentation concluded, we were lucky enough to go on a test-ride of the adrenalin-pumping, high-speed adventure with Dom, Hobbs and the rest of the Fast and Furious gang. Coming at the end of the famous Back-lot Tram Tour, Supercharged literally puts you smack dab in the middle of a high-flying, breakneck speed chase. The technology is pretty cool, in that with the giant 360-degree screen and 3D glasses, »

Wrestlers have been invading the movies for years. After all, who better to dole out some scripted, Ott grappling than the men who make it their living?
The wrestling industry has everything that Hollywood loves: stars with name recognition, fight scenes, rippling muscles, beautiful women and drama so heightened that it’s in danger of leaving orbit.
While the movies they appear in are often stupid stupid dumb stupid, megastars like Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin, John Cena and Dave Bautista have all achieved a certain level of Hollywood success, in movies like No Holds Barred, The Expendables, The Marine, and Guardians of the Galaxy respectively. Oh, and you may have heard of an actor on the independent movie circuit called Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.
When a wrestler is cast in a movie, fans hope to see certain things: one-liners, big people hitting other big people, things falling over, and, »

Ex-Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger took to the streets recently to film a promo for his fourth film as the T-800 Terminator, reprising his roles from 1984, 1991, 2003 and again this year for Terminator: Genisys. Schwarzenegger, 67, has been busy since leaving office after two terms in 2011, starring in several films including The Expendables series and […]

Sir Roger Moore wants former James Bond actors to star in an action movie.
The 87-year-old star revealed he’s been approached by a film studio to develop a movie starring several former 007 actors including Sean Connery, 84, George Lazenby, 75, Timothy Dalton, 71 and Pierce Brosnan, 62.
Speaking about the concept, he insisted: “I’d be up for it.
“But I’d need about ten stunt doubles.”
According to The Sun newspaper, the film would be similar to ‘The Expendables‘ franchise, which has brought together movie legends including Jason Statham, Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dolph Lundgren and Bruce Willis for a series of action-packed blockbusters.
However, Sean, who retired in 2006, is not convinced by the idea and is currently refusing to engage in discussions for the movie. »

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...
Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.
Without further ado...
23 Jump Street
Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »
Last week, it was leaked and subsequently confirmed that Jason Statham was in deep negotiations to play the villain Bullseye on the upcoming season 2 of Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix. This news was probably the greatest moment of my whole life. Then not even 48 hours later, the talks broke down for whatever mystical Hollywood reason. Statham would not be playing the iconic villain of Bullseye, which was probably the saddest moment of my whole life, because we missed out on an opportunity to watch Statham be an action villain again.
The only thing better than Action Hero Jason Statham is Action Villain Jason Statham, and that’s a side of him that only 2 films have explored to date with 11 years between the two. We could have gotten up to Thirteen Whole Hours of Action Villain Jason Statham, and even more so on a show that had surprisingly great and excitingly choreographed action scenes. »

Jason Statham is all over the place, kicking ass in high-octane action films, and even stretching into comedy with the espionage send up Spy. He.s also not opposed to appearing in franchises, like the Fast & Furious films or The Expendables, but he recently said he will not be returning to one of his best known, The Transporter, but is totally game for more Crank. While doing the press rounds for Spy, Yahoo caught up with Statham and McCarthy and fired off a barrage of questions during a lightning round three-minute interview. When asked about the possibility of returning for The Transporter 4, Statham was brief, brusque, and got his point across with a one-word response: Never. That seems rather clear and doesn.t leave a lot of room for optimistic fans of Statham.s character, Frank Martin, to interpret his statement. At least it doesn.t leave much hope of »
Yesterday, it was reported that Jason Statham is being looked at to play Bullseye in Daredevil Season 2. While Marvel claims there.s no truth to this rumor, many have thought that this would be a good fit for the actor given his vast experience in action movies like The Transporter and The Expendables. However, even if he doesn.t end up fighting Matt Murdock next year, there are still plenty of other evildoers that he could portray should he choose. Statham was recently critical of Marvel.s CGI action sequences, and he.s said in the past that he.s not a fan of superhero movies. So realistically, him joining a comic book movie doesn.t sound like it.s in the cards.That being said, it.s always fun to play the "What If?" game. Assuming that we live in a world where Statham would be willing to jump »
