Frank Grillo & Iko Uwais battle aliens in Beyond Skyline trailer

Remember SKYLINE? Me neither, but here's a quick refresher for the both of us: Aliens invade Earth and, through a hypnotizing light, immobilize much of the population and begin vacuuming them up for their life energy. Directed by the Brothers Strause (ALIENS VS. PREDATOR: REQUIEM), the film was a commercial success but was almost universally panned by critics, however, a sequel is...

Joe Carnahan & Frank Grillo on what makes their remake of The Raid different

Gareth Evans ’ THE RAID is one of the absolute best action movies out there, and the thought of remaking something already so great doesn't seem to make a lot of sense, but here we are. Word of a remake of THE RAID popped up several years ago but the project was ultimately shelved, but just last week it was announced that THE RAID was back in action with Joe Carnahan (THE...

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. Over the years, we've enjoyed any number of engaging bouts featuring icons like Tony Jaa , Ip Man, and of course, Bruce Lee . Though one of the most outstanding films (or series) that...

Iko Uwais returns to ultra violence in the trailer for Headshot

Iko Uwais took the cinematic world by storm with his action prowess in THE RAID and THE RAID 2. Given his action star status, you'd be surprised to know that the man has very few cinematic efforts under his belt. Well, he's looking to change that with his latest picture, HEADSHOT. In this film, Uwais plays a young man who washes ashore, an amnesiac with a serious head injury...

Tony Jaa, Tiger Chen, and Iko Uwais to star together in Triple Threat

My love of THE RAID and Iko Uwais ' role in it has been well-documented on the site before. But I never got a chance to talk about my love of Tony Jaa (of ONG BAK fame) or Tiger Chen (star of the Keanu Reeves -directed MAN OF TAI CHI) yet. Now's my chance! And yeah, those guys f*cking rule too. Anyway, they're all apparently going to star together in a film called...

The Raid remake may be stuck in limbo with no director

There was a a large, collective eye-roll when it was announced a US remake of THE RAID: REDEMPTION would eventually be coming our way. 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...

Ronda Rousey and The Raid's Iko Uwais to star in buddy cop movie Mile 22

When you hear the term "buddy cop" movie, you likely instantly think of LETHAL WEAPON or maybe RUSH HOUR. The common thread is it is usually a straight, by the books cop and a funny partner. Or, at the very least, it is one partner who is a cop and another who has a special set of skills like martial arts or being undead. There are very few examples of both cops being adept martial...

Gareth Evans says The Raid 3 "isn't going to be happening anytime soon"

THE RAID 2 was released two years after the first movie, however we're going to have to wait a little longer than that for the next film. Fans have apparently been asking director Gareth Evans when to expect THE RAID 3 on Twitter, and while he does say he has ideas for the follow-up (Evans has previously said the sequel will start two hours before THE RAID 2 ends), he also...
