The Anchorman is back… In a sequel that is

Paramount Pictures has finally given the green light to a sequel to 2004’s Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. Will Ferrell, who made the announcement himself in-character on “Conan”, will return to the title role with supporting cast members Steve Carell and Paul Rudd said to be involved as well.

Ferrell, whose latest, Casa de mi Padre is in theaters now, will again script alongside Adam McKay, who will be back in the director’s chair.

The original film also starred Christina Applegate, David Koechner, Fred Willard, Fred Armisen, Chris Parnell and many more. Though none of those members of the supporting cast have yet been confirmed. I’m sure before the spring season is done, more cast members will be confirmed from the original Anchorman movie.

 

THAT’S IT! Cheers: “To Peace” and May the Force be with you!

“Safe” Trailer.

The trailer for Jason Statham’s newest movie “Safe”. I think its safe to say, Statham may have be “typed cast” as an actor. That isn’t such a bad thing because when he does actions movies his movements seem so believable. The plot for this movie:

“Sometimes a chance meeting can save your life.

Mei (Catherine Chan) is a 10 year-old Chinese math prodigy who is abducted from her home in Nanjing by the Triads; she is sent to America by the Triad Leader Han Jiao (James Hong), where she will serve as a “counter” for their extortion racquets. No computers, no paper trails – she keeps all the numbers in her head. One year later Mei’s new adopted “father” Chang (Reggie Lee) brings her along to count the numbers as he shakes-down his business operations.

Luke Wright (Jason Statham) is a second rate cage fighter in the mixed martial arts circuit in New Jersey. When he blows a rigged fight, the Russian mafia make an example of him – murdering his wife and threatening to kill anyone he forms any kind of friendship or relationship with. Now homeless, destitute and completely isolated from society, Luke wanders the streets of New York like a ghost, hovering on the edge of suicide.

Big things begin to stir in the city, when Triad boss Han Jiao appears in New York, and gives Mei a secret number to memorize; on her way to use this number for an unknown purpose, Mei is violently kidnapped from the Triads by the Russian Mafia, who want the information she now has in her head— as does the corrupt Captain Wolf (Robert John Burke) of the NYPD. Mei manages to escape, but she won’t be able to survive on her own for long.

Standing on a subway platform ready to throw himself under a train, Luke Wright sees the young and terrified Chinese girl being pursued by Russian thugs… he knows something is wrong, and he knows now he has to make a decision: continue on his downward spiral, or come back fighting in order to help a little girl he’s never even met. Luke comes back to life, forcing himself into violent action, and over the course of one harrowing night he tears a swath through the city’s underworld in order to save Mei’s life and redeem his own.”

in my opinion it looks a like a “B-Rated” movie that did really well in Asia and is finally here to gain some North American buzz. That being said Id still watch it, and will give you guys a review for sure.

THAT’S IT! Cheers: “To Peace” and May the Force be with you!

City Of Scars

As I said, this is the first video to “Batman Seeds of Arkham in what I’m guessing may become a trilogy or even webisode styled. DC/(the)WB really needs to contact this guy and get him to do some work for them.

This story takes place out of continuity as I said with the other video.

“When the Joker escapes from Arkham and murders the parents of a young boy, Batman recalls the pain of losing his own parents as a child. He is pushed past his limits to the point where his focus becomes revenge on all who stand in his way, including many of Gotham’s underworld. Finally, Batman is forced to look at the psychological profile of his own mind and accept the consequences of his life to find resolve.”

If that isn’t a good Batman story for the live-action medium, I don’t know what is. So watch it, enjoy it rate and comment on it.

THAT’S IT! Cheers: “To Peace” and May the Force be with you!

Bat In The Sun’s New Movie, Batman Seeds of Arkham

This is the second video to what was started in “City of Scars” that features “Batman” that’s totally fan made and for the most part, well done. It has nothing to do with Batman outside of the principles that make Batman who he is, and the characters, it won’t mess with any continuity from the  comic books or  the Bale/Nolan movies that have been released and are to be released (one such film being “The Dark Knight Rises). It follows the shocking end of the first video and introduces three new characters, Richard (aka Dick grayson aka the first robin, who now he has become “Nightwing” like he has in the comic books.) “Poison Ivy, and Killer Croc. ENJOY.

THAT’S IT! Cheers: “To Peace” and May the Force be with you!

The Raid: Redemption (Indonesian: Serbuan maut) is an Indonesian martial arts action film directed by Gareth Evans and starring Iko Uwais which is set for a 2012 release. This is the second collaboration of Evans and Uwais after their first action film, Merantau released in 2009. Both films showcase the traditional Indonesian martial artPencak Silat.

After its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), critics and audience alike hailed The Raidas one of the best action films in years.

Deep in the heart of Jakarta’s slums lies an impenetrable derelict apartment building which became a safe house for the world’s most dangerous killers and gangsters. The rundown apartment block has been considered untouchable to even the bravest of police. Cloaked under the cover of pre-dawn darkness and silence, an elite team is tasked with raiding the building in order to take down the notorious drug lord who runs it. But when a chance encounter with a spotter blows their cover and news of their assault reaches the drug lord, the building’s lights are cut off and all exits are blocked. Stranded on the 6th floor with no way out, the unit must fight their way through the city’s worst criminals to survive their mission.
