Radius-twc acquired Man of Tai Chi, which serves as the actor's directorial debut. The story, set in modern-day Beijing, follows a young martial artist (Tiger Hu Chen) who finds himself in the middle of a lucrative underground fight scene, where he must compromise his own morals to get out alive. Keanu Reeves co-stars alongside The Raid: Redemption's Iko Uwais and Jeremy Marinas. Here's what Keanu Reeves had to say about his first directorial effort landing at Radius-twc.
"I could not hope for a better home than Radius-twc for Man of Tai Chi. Their passion, understanding and support of the film is what a filmmaker wishes for in bringing their storytelling to the widest possible audience."
It looks like Keanu Reeves will be able to fulfill his own post-"Matrix" prophecy, as The Weinstein Company's Radius-twc has acquired the rights to his directorial debut, "Man of Tai Chi."
The deal was inked at the Cannes Film Festival, where coveted distribution deals are commonplace. Deadline.com reports that the offer involves a "low seven-figure minimum guarantee."
"Man of Tai Chi," which had its trailer debut online last month, is set in modern-day Beijing. The movie depicts the story of a martial-arts aficionado who takes his tai chi skills to an underworld fight club. Reeves plays the villain who forces people to fight to their death.
Michael G. Cooney, whose previous work mostly includes short films and video games, wrote the script for the movie, which Radius-twc plans to release in the fourth quarter of 2013. "Tai Chi" co-stars Iko Uwais ("The Raid"), Karen Mok ("Around the World in 80 Days") and Jeremy Marinas, »

Magnet has released a great theatrical trailer for their epic horror anthology V/H/S/2. It's not as bloody as the red-band trailer, but it offers up some fun new footage. This movie was entertaining as hell, and if you enjoy watching horror movies then this film is not to be missed. All the segments in the film are horrifically fantastic! You can read my review for it here.
Inside a darkened house looms a column of TVs littered with VHS tapes, a pagan shrine to forgotten analog gods. The screens crackle and pop endlessly with monochrome vistas of static—white noise permeating the brain and fogging concentration. But you must fight the urge to relax: this is no mere movie night. Those obsolete spools contain more than just magnetic tape. They are imprinted with the very soul of evil.

An assortment of news rolling in from Cannes like the waves on the beach (see what we did there?) Anyway, "The Raid" helmer Gareth Evans is currently in production on his most-likely bone-crunching follow-up "Berandal," and while he's got some Hollywood projects in development, he isn't going to be abandoning Indonesian martial-arts pictures altogether; Screen Daily report that the Welsh ex-pat will serve as action director on "The Night Comes For Us," a vehicle for "The Raid" vet, and "Fast & Furious 6" stand out Joe Taslim. The film will see Taslim as a Triad enforcer who accidentally causes a massacre, and will be properly directed by Timo Tjahjanto. Screen also report that James Marsh, the man behind the sublime "Man On Wire," the excellent "Red Riding" and the 'yeah, it's ok I guess' "Shadow Dancer," is lining up another project. The filmmaker's reuniting with the producers of the latter for "The »

In case the red band trailer released last week was too gruesome for you, an all-ages trailer has debuted for V/H/S/2. Gareth Evans (The Raid: Redemption), Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun), and Simon Barrett (You're Next) are among the filmmakers who direct segments of this horror anthology, centering on two private investigators searching for a missing student, who discover a strange collection of VHS tapes in an abandoned house. Take a look at the latest footage from this upcoming sequel, debuting on VOD formats June 6 and in theaters July 12.

I love The Expendables franchise like I love Bruce Willis’s beautiful bald head: with no bounds. What is there not to love about sexagenarians hopped up on steroids blowing stuff up by the sheer force of their masculinity? No, seriously: The Expendables rocks. The Expendables 2 was equally awesome, and of course I have nothing but high hopes for The Expendables 3. If man behind the explosions, Sylvester Stallone, has anything to say about it, we’ll soon be adding one more badass to our badass list.
Stallone recently Tweeted that he’s been speaking to ‘Steven S.’ about The Expendables 3, which Mr. S. is totally into, ‘if the part fits.’ Steven S., in all likelihood, is none other than perhaps the only badass not to get in on the action yet: Steven Seagal. If Seagal joins the cast of The Expendables 3, he’ll be following in »

The anthology horror movie V/H/S debuted at Sundance last year to brilliant early reviews, and almost a year later to the day, the anthology sequel, V/H/S/2, returned to Utah to equally promising praise.
The film has continued on the festival circuit in recent weeks, and with only a few more to go before its early VOD release, ahead of its theatrical rollout, Magnet have debuted the terrific and very red-band first trailer online.
Searching for a missing student, two private investigators break into his abandoned house and find another collection of mysterious VHS tapes. In viewing the horrific contents of each cassette, they realize there may be terrifying motives behind the student’s disappearance.

Viva la película de terror antología!
Is that right? After five years of Spanish throughout high school, I still just went to Google Translate for that shit. But anyway, for those who don’t understand my (probably gibberish) Spanish, it (most likely doesn’t) means “Long live the horror anthology!” Why am I so excited? Well, partially because I didn’t think this craze would actually stay strong in today’s horror world, and partially because V/H/S/2 proves the concept is only producing better and better content. V/H/S and The ABCs Of Death tested the waters, wetted viewers whistles, but V/H/S/2 took the concept to extremely more brutal places knowing the market for over-the-top horror is salivating over original content these days – something I pray the newly announced sequel to The ABCs Of Death tackles even more ferociously.
I was elated to see that »

“The Expendables” franchise seems like both a blessing and a bit of a curse for Sylvester Stallone and his team of aging action stars. While the franchise itself has proven to be a hit, it hasn’t exactly been a career re-launcher for guys like Stallone and Schwarzengger whose films “Bullet to the Head” and “The Last Stand” proved to be unsuccessful in the box office this year. Still, at least they all have a franchise to fall back on and it’s fun to see what kind of a cast Stallone can conjure up for the next “Expendables” film. Speaking of which, Stallone has recently taken to Twitter to tease us all about who might show up for “Expendables 3.” Stallone wrote a series of tweets a few nights ago dropping a few casting tidbits. He has confirmed that Wesley Snipes and Mickey Rourke will be in the third film, »

A third installation of the testosterone-fueled action film franchise headlined by Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger is currently in development with production alluded to beginning later this year under director Patrick Hughes (Red Hill). Star and executive producer Sylvester Stallone has revealed more information on casting for the third film in the franchise by confirming star Mickey Rourke will return after being absent in the second movie. He also teased the inclusion of newcomers Jackie Chan and Wesley Snipes. On Chan he tweeted, "What's the plan? Ask Jackie Chan...." As for Snipes: "(He) Can not Wait to fight to the top again!". Stallone also referred to last year's action hit The Raid: Redemption, saying he believes the third Expendables film "can do »

Found footage has become something of a staple within the horror genre over the past few years, and now audiences are crying out for something more than just one long film using this style. They want anthologies as well, the piecing together of lots of different styles and subject matter all presented in a single film. This was especially the case with 2012's V/H/S, which used the story of a group of criminals having to steal a tape from a house, but unsure as to which one they were meant to acquire, they had to watch a series of shorts, each directed by a different horror director.
Whilst personally I was not a fan of the first instalment, someone has felt that the world needs a sequel, and below is the trailer for this offering, V/H/S/2, which features the directing talents of Simon Barrett (A Horrible Way to Die »

Magnet Releasing has just unleashed a new trailer for V/H/S/2, the sequel to last year's popular found-footage anthology, which you can watch below courtesy of Yahoo! Movies. It's loaded with new footage, including a fair amount of splatter (and a brief shot of boobies, so it's not work-safe). They also unveiled the new promo stills you see here. V/H/S/2 marks the return of writers/directors Simon Barrett and Adam Wingard (You're Next), joined by Blair Witch Project veterans Eduardo Sanchez and Gregg Hale, as well as Timo Tjahjanto (Macabre), Gareth Huw Evans (The Raid) and Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun). It's slated for theatrical release on iTunes/On Demand June 6th, and will see a limited theatrical run on July 12th. Check out the trailer now! V H S 2 - Red Band Trailer »

Magnet has revealed, via Yahoo! Movies, the Red Band trailer for the upcoming V/H/S/2. Like the first instalment, V/H/S 2 is a collection of found footage short films, all from different directors. The horror anthology — which features sections overseen by Hobo with a Shotgun filmmaker Jason Eisener, You’re Next director Adam Wingard, and Gareth Evans (of The Raid), will be available on demand on June 6 and arrives in cinemas July 12. Like most anthology films, some segments are uneven, but as Mark pointed out in his review, the film does its best work in the middle, when it displays some fine efforts from some real talent. You can check out the trailer below.

Sylvester Stallone took to his Twitter account last night, revealing a barrage of information regarding The Expendables 3. The actor/producer says that he is 'raiding' the The Raid: Redemption cast (most likely star Iko Uwais), and then teased that Jackie Chan is also joining the cast. He confirms that Mickey Rourke and Wesley Snipes are pretty much on aboard as well, but as we've seen with this franchise, anything can and will change at the last minute. Take a look at this series of tweets, then read on for more information.

We believe we can do better than the Raid, which was an excellent film. »
When “V/H/S” came out last year, reaction was… mixed, to put it lightly. Like most anthology films, it was wildly uneven. But it seems the concept is just too irresistible for other filmmakers to resist and thus, we have “V/H/S 2.” Originally titled “S-v/H/S”, the sequel premiered at Sundance this past January to a much more positive reception than the first (read our review). Now a red band trailer has just been posted online over at Yahoo and there’s only one way to describe it: utter mayhem. Like the first one, “V/H/S 2” is a collection of found footage short films all from different directors. Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett are the only holdovers from “V/H/S,” with the rest including Eduardo Sanchez and Gregg Hale (the former of whom birthed the found footage horror genre with “The Blair Witch Project”), Gareth Evans (“The Raid”), Timo Tjahjanto, »

V/H/S/2 (originally titled S-vhs) guarantees a lot of blood, screams, aliens, some spooky creatures and… well, you’ll just have to watch the first red-band trailer for the whole thing to see what I’m talking about. Definitely looks promising, head inside to find the video, as well as some new images and poster for the upcoming anthology horror film. First of all, let me remind you that V/H/S/2 is the sequel to the last year’s V/H/S and features a series of found-footage shorts directed by Gareth Huw Evans (The Raid), Simon Barrett (A Horrible Way To Die), Adam Wingard (You’re Next), Edúardo Sanchez (Lovely Molly), Gregg »
