TV Review – Jean-Claude Van Johnson – Pilot Episode

Tom Jolliffe reviews the pilot episode of Jean-Claude Van Johnson

For The Muscles From Brussels, Mr Jean-Claude Van Damme, the notion of sending himself up is nothing new. Many stars may find the idea of mocking themselves as too much for their ego to handle, but Jean-Claude (despite often being accused of having no small ego himself) has happily played the fool in the last few years. It started with the surprising Jcvd, in which he played an exaggerated version of himself caught up in a Post Office Heist. It remains the most critically acclaimed film of his career and a film that struck a chord with critics and on the festival circuit.

After that Van Damme never quite managed to escape direct to video action hell, albeit with his brief cinematic comeback in The Expendables 2. Again that film was a complete send up of the genre that brought »

Five Directors Who Could Direct ‘Top Gun 2’

7 July 2016 6:57 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

As you may have determined, there will be a Top Gun sequel at some point in the very near future. Jerry Bruckheimer teased an image with Tom Cruise a little while ago via his Twitter account, but since then things have gone a little bit quiet.

Cruise is currently shooting The Mummy for Universal and then he’ll reprise his role as Ethan Hunt in a sixth Mission: Impossible movie for Paramount. In between he’ll hit the road to promote the Jack Reacher sequel and then, hopefully, we hope he’ll turn his attention to Top Gun 2 – after all, the original film is thirty years old next year.

What we haven’t considered is who will direct it. As we all know, Tony Scott sadly passed away a couple of years ago, and his legendary shoes are going to be really difficult to fill.

Scott was a truly unique, »

Tom Cruise & Cobie Smulders Kick Ass & Take Names In The First Teaser Trailer For Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

14 June 2016 7:25 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

He's back. Tom Cruise is back as Jack Reacher and Entertainment Tonight has released our first official look at footage from the eagerly awaited Ed Zwick-directed film. It's not exactly the first full-length trailer, which should be with us in a few short days, but there's still plenty of Reacher goodness as we get to see Cruise escape one sticky situation before landing himself in another. The two-minute teaser features commentary from co-star Cobie Smulders, who introduces her character - Major Susan Turner - and then teases the badassery to come: "He's alone and he's sort of in his element and then he couples up with me and all hell breaks loose. We're on the run for this entire movie." Check out the teaser trailer below: The new film, a sequel to 2012’s “Jack Reacher,” is based on author Lee Child’s 18th book in the bestselling Jack Reacher series, Never Go Back.

Akshay Kumar champions the cause of stuntsmen with a heartfelt piece

3 March 2016 8:00 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Scott Cosgrove, an international stuntman from USA, died on 23rd February near a hiking trail in the Santa Monica hills. While the news started trickling in during last few days, Bollywood’s own Akshay Kumar was supremely impacted by this mishap. Reason being that the actor, impressed by Scott’s work in films like The Expendables 2, The Hunger Games, Rush Hour 3 and 300 amongst others, was supposed to collaborate with Scott in one of his upcoming films.

In the times when majority of actors don’t even acknowledge the biggest of the directors once they start going through a lean phase, Akshay has actually gone ahead and paid homage to a stuntman and that too from foreign shores!

A stuntman at heart, who started with a couple of dozen action films before moving on to various genres, and is now acting in an array of films that range from drama to hardcore action, »
