Sylvester Stallone And Jackie Chan To Team Up For Ex-Baghdad

13 May 2017 8:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

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. »

Stallone and Chan team-up for Scott Waugh’s big budget Ex-Baghdad

12 May 2017 3:57 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

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.

Relativity Backer Pushes Its Fraud Case Against Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin

3 May 2017 1:07 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

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.

Atomic Blonde Red Band Trailer Is Nuts… But, Is It Good?

10 March 2017 10:01 AM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

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. »

Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk review

13 February 2017 8:58 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

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. »
