Z Team Films Presents The Release Of

Die Fighting” Nation-wide On Demand November 4

On November 4, Gravitas Ventures will unleash Z Team Films’ martial arts action film Die Fighting on Video on Demand throughout North America, reaching over 100 million homes. Die Fighting stars Fabien Garcia, Laurent “Lohan” Buson, Didier Buson, Jess Allen, Dave Vescio and Xin Wuku. The movie is directed by Fabien Garcia and is produced by Laurent Buson.

The trailer looks action packed showcasing some great fight scenes and choreography. Hard hitting, bone crushing and maybe some skull breaking moments, the camera angles during the fights are well done and it seems the actors involved can all thrown down some great moves. I will certainly be checking this low budget movie out on the release on November 4th 2014.

The Greatest Horror Anthology Film Segments of All Time

25 October 2014 7:35 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Popular in the 1960s and early 1970s with more rare appearances in the 1980s, 1990s and the 2000s, the anthology-style horror film has made a solid resurgence in recent years with such portmanteau releases as The ABCs of Death films and the V/H/S series.

With Mexico Barbaro, Fear Paris and other projects in various stages of completion, the anthology horror film looks to continue to be an important part of the horror cinema landscape.

Some anthology films employ a framing or wraparound sequence in an attempt to connect the segments that make up the film while others dispense with this classic Amicus-style approach entirely and simply present a collection of short films connected by genre.

Either way, a horror anthology film is ultimately about the quality of its individual segments and this article will take you on a tour of the greatest horror anthology segments of all time. »

Southeast Asian Cinema: A Seedling Straining to Thrive

5 October 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The upcoming relaunch of the Singapore Intl. Film Festival and the steady expansion of the Luang Prabang Festival in Laos, both of which focus entirely on films from Southeast Asia, suggests growing interest in pics from the region.

Thai, Filipino and Singaporean films have taken major festival wins in recent years. Creativity is hardly in short supply.

But numerous problems and contradictions await filmmakers in the region.

Positives include growing economies and improving exhibition infrastructure. Negatives include censorship, a lack of access to capital, narrow distribution channels for independent films and the lack of a regional marketplace — let alone an international one.

Thailand, which has by far the strongest filmmaking infrastructure in the region, is a case in point.

The country has soundstages, experienced crews and international-quality post-production facilities that service domestic and international shoots. And it is producing world-class cinema: Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul took the Cannes Palme d »

58th BFI London Film Festival Review – The Dead Lands (2014)

25 September 2014 9:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Dead Lands, 2014

Directed by Toa Fraser

Starring James Rolleston, Lawrence Makoare, Te Kohe Tuhaka, Xavier Horan, Rukura Turei, George Henare, Rena Owen, Pana Hema Taylor

Synopsis:

After his tribe is slaughtered through an act of treachery, Hongi, a Maori chieftain’s teenage son, must avenge his father’s murder in order to bring peace and honor to the souls of his loved ones. Vastly outnumbered by a band of villains, Hongi’s only hope is to pass through the feared and forbidden Dead Lands and forge an uneasy alliance with the mysterious Warrior, a ruthless fighter who has ruled the area for years.

Like Dredd a few years back, The Dead Lands benefits from being made outside of the “studio system”. With no men in suits to answer to, director Toa Fraser can take brave moves and make a film that doesn’t have to bow down to movie conventions. »

Love Dogs and Wanton Gun Violence? ‘John Wick’ Is For You

22 September 2014 5:19 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

There are movies you should see and movies you need to see. By now, it’s my hope that our little corner of the Internet has guided you toward the latter. It’s hard out there with movie ticket prices rising and economic recovery in progress. Seeing every movie in a theater just isn’t plausible for everyone. Sometimes guidance is needed. So here’s some guidance for you: if you like action movies — I’m talking a real knock-down, drag-out shoot ‘em up with a high body count and plenty of style. If you’ve ever yearned for a movie where Keanu Reeves shoots a lot of people very directly in the face. Even if you haven’t yearned for that last part: John Wick is a movie you need to see. The experience of seeing John Wick at this year’s Fantastic Fest in Austin was reminiscent of seeing Gareth EvansThe Raid the first »

Asia experts discuss China film growth, challenges

11 September 2014 3:32 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Experts at the Asia Film Summit in Toronto discussed the growth and current issues in Asia and finding the key to cracking the East-West conundrum.

Peter Loehr, CEO of Legendary East, speaking of the Chinese theatrical market said: “This year, China will be the first market outside the Us to ever cross $5bn.

“So it’s the second largest market in the world, but more importantly, it’s expanding at a tremendous, tremendous pace. And I think that expansion will continue for years to come, and I think there are a lot of macro-economic reasons for that.

“If you look at a market like China where there’s now about 22,000 screens for 1.3 billion people versus the Us where there’s 39,000 screens for 300 million plus people, the per-screen average speaks a lot. In China you’re looking at a screen for 68,000 people and in the Us about 8,000. If China ever achieved the screen saturation the Us has, there »

‘Killers’ Review

1 September 2014 11:17 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Oka AntaraKazuki KitamuraRin Takanashi, Ray Sahetapy, Epy Kusnandar, Luna Maya, Tara Basro, Mei Kurokawa | Written by Takuji Ushiyama, Timo Tjahjanto | Directed by Kimo Stamboel, Timo Tjahjanto

When presented with a film proudly stating “from the producers of The Raid” you’d expect it to be similar, but with Killers that thought would be wrong.  This isn’t a bad thing though, the subject matter makes up for it.  A psychological battle of wits between two serial killers from different backgrounds being drawn together through the lust for murder is an interesting concept, what will happen when they finally meet?

Bayu Aditya (Oka Antara) is a loser in life, a failed investigative journalist and separated from his wife he finds himself pushed into murder when defending himself from a mugging.  Nomura Shuhei (Kazuki Kitamura) is a charismatic good-looking man in his early thirties and more importantly successful.  Behind »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – September 1st 2014

1 September 2014 3:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Believe it or not, films and television programmes added to Netflix and Amazon do have a tendency to expire and no longer be there after a while; this isn’t as publicised as when the titles in question are added though. So by the time you read this there are around 50 titles disappearing from Netflix.

If you have ever wanted to watch the 2002 version of The Count of Monte Cristo then you have probably missed your chance by now. What this does mean however is that probably next week Netflix will have added a whole raft of new stuff, I say new but it will probably be a mixture of catalogue and stuff from the last year. I know that the underrated Enders Game and the superior Hunger Games: Catching Fire is due there in September, I just don’t know when.

There's So Much More To "Raid" This Time Around

22 August 2014 7:08 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Two years ago, an Indonesian action film The Raid: Redemption blew my mind with 101 minutes of incredible fighting framed with a simple plot. A police raid of an apartment complex goes terribly wrong, and a few good cops need to fight their way out, taking out highly-trained criminals and crooked cops along the way. The Raid 2: Berandal takes everything from The Raid: Redemption and makes it bigger, including its running time which clocks in at 150 minutes. Does the raw, gritty power of the original film still work in a 2½ hour film, or did writer/director Gareth Evans overextend his reach?

18 August 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

 

Frank Grillo has made a career out of strong supporting roles, but that’s set to change. Earlier this year he earned praise for his performance in The Purge: Anarchy, and the actor also left an impression as Brock Rumlow in Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Comic book fans will know exactly what’s in store for the character, and the closing minutes of Winter Soldier all but confirm that we can look forward to seeing Grillo develop Rumlow further.

Ahead of the home entertainment release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, we got a chance to quiz Grillo on how he’d like Rumlow to evolve in future instalments, other Marvel characters he’d like a chance to play, and his role in the upcoming remake of The Raid. Have a read below.

There’s a lot of characters in the Marvel universe that have already made the jump to live action, »

Reviewed by Colleen Wanglund, MoreHorror.com

The Raid 2 (2014)

Directed by Gareth Evans

Runtime 150 minutes

Written and directed by Gareth Evans, The Raid 2 picks up right where the original film left off. Rama’s brother Andi (Donny Alamsyah) is executed by the crime syndicate after escaping the building. Rama (Iko Uwais) goes to Bunawar (Cok Simbara) and is asked to go undercover in a secret unit to expose the corruption of the Police Commissioner. Rama wants no part of it until he learns of his brother’s murder and the threats to his family. He goes to prison for assault where he is told it will only be for a few months. While there he must gain the trust of Uco (Arifin Putra), son of the head of Bangun’s (Tio Pakusodewo) criminal enterprise. When Rama is finally released from prison, Uco is waiting for him and he is given a job by Bangun. »

No Country for Old Men Who Kick Ass

14 August 2014 7:34 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

This weekend will see the release of The Expendables 3, the latest in a series featuring all your favorite action stars from the 80s and 90s in the same movie. This series is a one trick pony – all your favorite action stars from the past reuniting to relive their collective glory days – but it is a trick I’d happily watch for seven more films. I remember when the first film came out I told my dad I went to see it and loved it, and when he asked what it was I just named the cast. He remarked that that movie would sound cool if it was made in the 90s. I replied oblivious to the dig with “Yeah, it’s awesome, right?” – The fact that these were all action heroes past their prime was the point.

One of the reasons why I enjoy writing and thinking about the »

Gareth Evans Happy About ‘The Raid’ Remake

12 August 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Foreign cinema fans groaned when the news broke that The Raid would be getting the American remake treatment. Currently in development and to be directed by The Expendables 3 director Patrick Hughes, the film is another in the long line of foreign films that have broken through to mainstream audiences. Rather than just being happy that that film has performed well studios inevitably throw money at an English language version of the film, because we all know that us Brits/Americans can’t read right?

One person not getting his knickers in a twist though is the originals director Gareth Evans. In fact he is welcoming the project as it gives him time to focus on other projects before having the make The Raid 3. Speaking to Digital Spy he remarked that where it not for the remake there wouldn’t have been any money for a sequel. He was »
