Railroad Tigers, Jackie Chan’s New Film, Has A Trailer

While Chan’s more recent work has been hit and miss with me, I have to admit there is something charming about this trailer.  Maybe it’s the way it harkens back to The Good, The Bad, The Weird, which was a fun South Korean flick.  Railroad Tigers is getting a Stateside release, which is excellent news for Chan fans like myself, so I guess we’ll see.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Teams Up With Jackie Chan

But don’t get too excited.

Schwarzenegger has been tapped to appear in Viy 2: Journey To China, a sequel to Viy, a Russian production based on the Nikolai Gogol poem of the same name.

Viy was a fantasy film, sort of horror-ish, but with a Pirates Of The Caribbean twist.  A lot of special effects, a bit of humor, and VERY loosely based of the source material.

Here’s the trailer:

So color me skeptical.  Because when I think back on the Pirates Of The Caribbean films, the casting and subsequent misuse of Chow Yun-Fat comes immediately to mind.  But that’s just my two cents.  At least we know Arnie’s gonna look goofy as all hell, thanks to this undercover photo.


Let me know what you guys think in the comments, HERE.

Jean-Claude Van Damme is Jean-Claude Van Johnson

As always, we here at AllOuttaBubbleGum love us some JCVD.  So it was greatly exciting to see Amazon hired the famous Muscles From Brussels to star in their new series, for which we have the following official synopsis:

                                                         If you need to eliminate a political rival, debilitate a multinational corporation, or overthrow an entire government—and you need it done with the utmost secrecy—there’s only one person to turn to: one of the most internationally recognizable movie stars in the history of film. Jean-Claude Van Johnson stars Jean-Claude Van Damme (JCVD) playing “Jean-Claude Van Johnson,” a global martial arts and film sensation…and, operating under the simple alias of “Johnson,” the most dangerous undercover private contractor in the world. Lucky for the world’s bad guys, he’s been retired for years…unlucky for them, a chance encounter with a lost love is about to bring him back to the game…and this time, he’ll be deadlier than ever. Probably.

Here is the first official trailer:
