Momentum Pictures will release 6 Below: Miracle On The Mountain in select theaters and On Demand and Digital HD on October 13th.
6 Below: Miracle on the Mountain is about as predictable as its title. Director Scott Waugh (Need for Speed, Act of Valor) takes us into the world of Eric LeMarque (Josh Hartnett), a former pro hockey star that lost his way. While we gauge our eyes upon the true events that shape LeMarque’s story, we inherit the central focus of his drug problem. We learn that all he has is his addiction, which comes with flashbacks that are almost just as bad; the one positive thing he has is his snowboard. Although, all three of these things eventually bring Eric to a peak of deeper isolation. He gets stranded in the Sierra Nevada mountains; what a shocker right?

Call it “The Revenant Lite,” and you won’t be far off the mark. “6 Below: Miracle on the Mountain,” another fact-based tale of resilience and endurance in the frozen wilderness, has Josh Hartnett cast as Eric LeMarque, a former pro hockey player who picks the worst possible time to go snowboarding in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and winds up wandering the unforgiving landscape for eight days while facing frostbite, hypothermia, starvation, dehydration and close encounters with big bad wolves. Unfortunately, director Scott Waugh (“Act of Valor”) and screenwriter Madison Turner somehow manage to make this struggle to survive seem only slightly more exciting than being stuck in rush-hour traffic.
The real-life Eric LeMarque wrote (with Davin Seay) an inspirational account of his misadventure, “Crystal Clear,” in which he credits God for giving him the strength to endure his lengthy exposure to harsh elements — and to more or less simultaneously overcome a crystal meth addiction.

Fans of action movies are in for a real treat today, as Deadline is reporting that Jackie Chan and Sylvester Stallone, both icons of the genre, are set to team up for for Ex-Baghdad, an upcoming thriller produced by Chan’s Sr Media company. With a budget of $80 million, it’s looking to be one of the most costly Chinese productions to date and though both actors are now signed on, no release timetable or shooting schedule has been revealed just yet.
From what we understand, though, the film will revolve around a “Chinese-run oil refinery located in Mosul, Iraq that gets attacked by terrorists.” The owners of the refinery then call in Chan – who plays a private security contractor – to rescue the workers being held hostage. However, he can’t do it alone, and so he recruits Stallone’s ex-marine, leading to the two teaming up to save the day. »

Sylvester Stallone and Jackie Chan are teaming up for the first time to star in a two-hander action film to be produced in China, according to Deadline. The film will be titled “Ex-Baghdad” and it’s to be helmed by “Act of Valor” and “Need for Speed” director Scott Waugh. The $80 million project would be one of the biggest films to come out of China.
“Ex-Baghdad” follows a Chinese private security contractor (Chan) and an American former Marine (Stallone) who team up to stop a group of delinquents who attack a China-run oil refinery in Mosul, Iraq, to steal a fortune in oil.
The script is by Arash Amel (“Grace of Monaco,” “The Titan”). Chan will produce through his company Sr Media, with Qi Jianhong (“1911”), Talent International’s Esmond Ren (“Chinese Zodiac”), and Hans Canosa »

What happens when you put together a man known as a raw street fighter with a martial arts expert? A brand new action thriller called Ex-Baghdad which will be led by The Expendables and Rocky actor Sylvester Stallone and Rush Hour’s Jackie Chan.
The Need for Speed and Act of Valor director, Scott Waugh will take the helm in the big budget action. Waugh will have a staggering $80 million dollars to play with for this film which will mark it as one of China’s biggest budget movies to ever come out of the country.
Anyone would assume the two veteran action stars would go head to head in this new venture, which is said to be Stallone’s replacement after he parted way with The Expendables but the two will actually be working as a team according to the following synopsis.

On Tuesday, a New York judge got further briefing in advance of a significant decision on whether Steven Mnuchin should remain as a co-defendant in a fraud lawsuit over $60 million lent by Rka Film Financing to Relativity Media.
Before Mnuchin become U.S. Treasury Secretary, his OneWest bank poured $160 million into Relativity, the embattled studio that produced such films as The Fighter, Limitless, Immortals and Act of Valor. In October 2014, Mnuchin became Relativity's co-chairman, a position he held until May 29, 2015, a few weeks before the studio declared Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

After Mad Max: Fury Road, and others, you might think that Charlize Theron as the main character in an action vehicle was not only a no-brainer, but something to jump to the top of the must-see list. Atomic Blonde is coming to prove things one way or the other, and a new red band trailer hopes to suck you in, but is this trailer the sell it thinks it is?
The film is based on a graphic novel and has Theron starring as Lorraine Broughton, an MI6 agent during the Cold War who is sent to investigate the murder of another agent. If the trailer is any sort of true guide, this is a high-octane ride filled with fights, chases, and a decent amount of sex. If the graphic novel is a true guide, it’s a gritty, somewhat crazy investigation that focuses on a character who is somewhat lost within herself. »

Ang Lee's latest film is an unconventional film being distributed, on the whole, in a very conventional way...
In the race to set forth the future of cinema through various technological advances, Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk feels like a major casualty. Once tipped for the Oscar race, the latest film from Ang Lee has bombed at the worldwide box office and been all but ignored by critics and awards bodies. This is partly due to complications in exhibiting the film in its intended format, because cinemas haven't adapted for this war drama as they did for major blockbusters of recent years.
Avatar successfully made the case for 3D, like the gift of fire from James Cameron to studio arsonists who post-converted every tentpole movie in sight, while Peter Jackson's Hobbit films were less successful in pioneering higher frame rates, inadvertently exposing the actors' make-up and making the audience dizzy. »
