New trailer for Swelter starring Jean-Claude Van Damme

15 July 2014 4:29 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of its North American release next month, a new trailer has debuted for the upcoming action thriller Swelter, which sees Jean-Claude Van Damme leading a cast that includes Lennie James (Snatch), Catalina Sandino Moreno (The Bridge), Grant Bowler (Killer Elite) and Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2). Take a look after the official synopsis…

“In the vein of the brutal heist drama Reservoir Dogs, the modern crime thriller A History of Violence, and the classic western High Plains Drifter, Swelter is a violent story of greed and retribution.”

Swelter hits DVD, Blu-ray and VOD in the States on August 12th, with a UK date yet to be confirmed.

Blu-ray Release: The Mechanic (1972)

12 May 2014 2:19 PM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray Release Date: June 10, 2014

Price: Blu-ray $29.95

Studio: Twilight Time

Charles Bronson is The Mechanic.

The 1972 thriller The Mechanic starring Charles Bronson—which was remade (unremarkably) by Simon West in 2011 as a star vehicle for Jason Statham (Killer Elite)—makes its Blu-ray debut from Twilight Time.

Directed by Michael Winner, The Mechanic stars Charles Bronson (Hard Times, The Great Escape) as a hardened professional hitman who’s feeling the strains of his profession. He joins forces with a ruthless up-and-comer (Jan-Michael Vincent, Damnation Alley) in a partnership that wavers between sustaining and profoundly dangerous…particularly when they get involved in a couple of tricky contracts.

Still considered by many to be the ultimate hitman flick, The Mechanic features a memorable score by the ever-prolific Jerry Fielding, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.

As supplier Twilight Time prints up only 3,000 copies of each title, the time to pre-order »

Last Action Heroesc Has the Macho, Action Genre Hit a Low Pointc

1 April 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I didn't quite know how to describe the genre I'm referring to with this post (BoxOfficeMojo doesn't even have a category for it), but suffice to say I'm particularly targeting the films made popular by the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone back in the '80s and more recently it seems Jason Statham had a lock down on things. Now, however, it only seems Liam Neeson can really generate any box-office juice with his cinematic fisticuffs, otherwise it has to be an ensemble or nothing. I ask because ever since Schwarzenegger made his way back to movies after playing Governor for eight years, he's seen The Last Stand, Escape Plan and this past weekend's Sabotage tank at the box office. Similarly, Stallone has seen Bullet to the Head, Escape Plan and Grudge Match bomb at the box office and Statham has seen a string of non-starters including Killer Elite, »

Clive Owen and Juliette Binoche get flirty in 'Words and Pictures' trailer

27 March 2014 10:53 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Clive Owen may be best-known for punching faces and getting gritty in films like "Shoot 'em Up," "Killer Elite" and "Children of Men," but he really just wants to meet-cute with sexy French Oscar winner Juliette Binoche. In the new trailer for the upcoming romantic comedy "Words and Pictures," the endlessly charming duo trade witticisms and flirtatious looks as two struggling intellectuals -- one a writer, the other a painter -- teaching at an American Liberal Arts college. Can they inspire each other to create some thing new? Will they fall in love? Have you ever seen a movie before?  Watch the trailer here: It was directed by comedy veteran Fred Schepisi ("Six Degrees of Separation," "Roxanne"). "Words and Pictures" opens May 23.  »
