The Raid director Gareth Evans' new action film Apostle releases first image

Who didn't love Gareth Evans ' awesome RAID films? They were badass, visceral, and fun as hell! Which means I can't wait for his next film, APOSTLE (not to be confused with the 1997 Robert Duvall drama - though imagine Evans taking on that!)

The Raid is getting a bone-snapping remake from Joe Carnahan & Frank Grillo

I've got this good buddy of mine named Beller. Whenever the two of us get together, we do our damnedest to seek out and watch whichever "decent" looking martial arts flicks we can find.

Mads Mikkelsen talks CGI, humor in Doctor Strange; Rogue One reshoots

Mads Mikkelsen seems like someone who shouldn’t be as famous in America as he is. Not to say he’s not a phenomenal actor. He is, and he deserves all the gift baskets and roses thrown at him as he can handle. But you just don’t see many people from Denmark make it big here—and not just big—but Marvel and STAR WARS big. But that’s exactly how big...

No surprise given the popularity of the original (along with the lack of English), but there's been little said on the remake front. The reason for that just may be because the film is now without a director and its star. The names Taylor Kitsch and...
