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

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.

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.

Taylor Kitsch has been offered the leading role in The Raid remake

Taylor Kitsch was being groomed as a franchise man when X-MEN: ORIGINS and JOHN CARTER hit screens, but it was not meant to be. At least, not at that time. The commercial success was less than stellar with those flicks and now the all-but-confirmed news of Channing Tatum taking over the role of Gambit brings Kitsch back to square one. The man has recently proved his acting chops...

C'mon, Hollywood: Where is our next great American action film?

It seems like action movies from the U.S. these days just arenít all that great, you know?

C'mon Hollywood: Get back in the Fight!

In the summer of 1989, a little movie by the name of BATMAN came out.

The theater was jam-packed on the afternoon I went and as I got to the ticket counter I saw my best friend exiting his screening, looking like...
