Fun New Trailer for the Navy Seal Heist Action Thriller American Renegades

“Do you have any idea the shit storm that you have created?!”

I’ve got a new trailer here for you to watch for an entertaining heist action thriller that revolves around a team of Navy SEALs. The film is called American Renegades, and it’s inspired by a true story that follows a team of Navy SEALs in 1995 as they attempt to solve a long-forgotten mystery while uncovering an immense treasure of Nazi gold at a bottom of a lake in war-torn Serbia.

The movie seems to be filled with lots of fun, over-the-top action that audiences will enjoy. If they’re into that kind of thing. I don’t know, I think the movie looks like it will be a blast! It doesn’t hurt to see J.K. Simmons being a hard-ass in it!

The film was directed by Steven Quale (Final Destination 5, Into the Storm) from

New Trailer for Navy SEALs Action Thriller Film 'American Renegades'

"The only thing more dangerous than the mission is this team of renegades." EuropaCorp USA has debuted a brand new official trailer for the action heist thriller titled Renegades, formerly known as The Lake. This was originally set for release in early 2017, and the first trailer debuted in 2016, but it's just now getting to theaters this fall - apparently. The film tells the sort-of true story of a team of Navy SEALs who try to find long-lost Nazi gold at the bottom in a lake during the Bosnian War in the 90s. The eclectic cast includes J.K. Simmons, as well as Sullivan Stapleton, Ewen Bremner, Sylvia Hoeks, Diarmaid Murtagh, Charlie Bewley, Clemens Schick and Dimitri Leonidas. They're totally overselling this now with all the big action, guns, tanks, and wise-crackin' American patriotism from these elite SEALs. Whatever works. Here's the new official trailer (+ new poster) for Steven Quale's American Renegades,

Cash Rebate Turns Island Nation of Malta Into Major Filming Destination
The Republic of Malta – a small, Mediterranean island and major tourist destination – lures filmmakers with its yacht-strewn azure coastlines and historically significant structures such as medieval churches, baroque palaces and ancient fortifications. Producers will also find value in the country’s hefty cash rebate.

Specifically, the rebate ranges from 20% to 25% for qualified expenditures. A 2% bonus is available for productions that feature Malta and its culture, bringing the total incentive up to a total maximum of 27%.

To qualify, productions must spend a minimum of 100,000 euros, or about $118,000. They must also satisfy a cultural test.

Production resources abound on the small island, which is connected by air to many major European cities. Malta is particularly known for its production water tank – one of the world’s largest – which many films use for shooting water and underwater scenes. Plus, a long history of filmmaking has endowed Malta with a deep and experienced crew base.

Blade Runner 2049 actress, Sylvia Hoeks, to play Emmanuelle star Sylvia Kristel

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Zehra Phelan

Blade Runner 2049 actress Sylvia Hoeks has signed up to play Emmanuelle star Sylvia Kristel in an upcoming biopic from Michael R. Roskam.

The project is said to be inspired by Kristel’s life after she relocated to L.A. and her life spiralled out of control with a number of relationships and developing a cocaine addiction. The centres on Kristel’s iconic career in the ’70s and ’80s when the huge success of the “Emmanuelle” films stood in stark contrast to her troubled personal life, a press statement said:

“Sylvia Kristel was one of the women that opened up a sexual way of looking at sex for women,” said Hoeks. But she added: “She was also “very free-spirited, maybe even too early in that regard for her generation.”

Hoek’s stated on the troubled actress “her intelligence and creativity as an artist made her difficult to grasp.

​French cinema drew 80.5m international spectators in 2017

Lack of EuropaCorp hit sees number dip below 100m.

The international box office for French films recovered some of its élan in 2017 after a difficult 2016, although the absence of a big hit from Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp meant admissions remained well below the 100m of recent years.

According to preliminary annual figures released by export body UniFrance on Friday evening (January 19) as part of its Rendez-vous with French Cinema in Paris programme, French films drew 80.5m spectators internationally in 2017 for a total box office of €468m ($572m).

The international box office also generated more admissions for French cinema than France, where local pictures sold 78.2m tickets in 2017. Unifrance said the 2017 international box office figure represented a 98% rise on 2016 figures, when French films drew 34m spectators worldwide.

Breaking the box office figure down, majority French productions accounted for 60.7m, or 76%, of these admissions. French-language productions generated 38m entries, accounting for 47% of the international box office.

Renegades Review

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Linda Marric

Regardless of your feelings towards Luc Besson’s most recent cinematic output, nobody can deny that a production carrying his name can usually be relied upon to bring something new, if not always coherent, to the action genre. In the case of Renegades, a film co-written by Besson and directed by Steven Quale, you might be hard pressed to find anything positive to say about this lazily put together, badly acted, and above all, poorly judged production.

Following a group of Navy Seals as they make their way through war-torn Bosnia in the 90s, Renegades not only offers a historically inaccurate account of the events, it also manages to infuriate further by presenting a ludicrous storyline held together by a series of poorly executed action set pieces.

Starring Australian action star Sullivan Stapleton as the leader of Us Navy Seal unit, and J.K. Simmons as his constantly exasperated superior,
