New Bruce Lee biopic gets a trailer

Simon Brew Jan 19, 2018

Birth Of The Dragon looks set to tell the story of a young Bruce Lee. Here's the trailer...

We’ve already had one big screen biopic of the late Bruce Lee, back when Jason Scott Lee played him in Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story. Now, though, comes another attempt to tell Lee’s story, in a film by the name of Birth Of The Dragon.

It’s directed by The Adjustment Bureau’s George Nolfi, working off a script from Stephen J Rivele and Christopher Wilkinson. Lee will be played by Philip Ng, and he’s joined in the cast by Xia Yu and Billy Magnussen.

A trailer has just been released for the film too, that looks like this…

And we’ve got a synopsis as well…

The Real Reason Bruce Lee Came Back to the United States at Age 18

The real reason that Bruce Lee came back to the United States when he was 18 was that he essentially beat up the wrong person. A lot of people want to think of Lee as the wise and venerated fighter that knew when to throw a punch and when to just walk away. That might have been who he became but when he was younger he didn’t hesitate to fight. In fact the reason he was sent back to the Us was because of his street fighting, which was frowned upon then just as it is now. A police officer

Five reasons to see The Foreigner

Five reasons to see The ForeignerFive reasons to see The ForeignerScott Goodyer1/16/2018 9:30:00 Am

Jackie Chan karate kicks his way back onscreen in The Foreigner! The action movie has Chan playing a humble businessman with a buried past who seeks justice when his daughter is killed in an act of terrorism. Pierce Brosnan also stars, teaming up again with GoldenEye director Martin Campbell.

Here are 5 reasons why you need to check this movie out:

1. The Stunts

Jackie Chan has endured many years of long, hard work and a ton of injuries to establish international success via his early beginnings in Hong Kong's martial arts movie industry. Making his way to North American audiences in 1995 with Rumble in the Bronx, this was the first time we saw an action star do his own stunts as he ran up walls and bounced off cars. It was very impressive and Jackie hasn't slowed down.

American Psycho Gets a Kid-Friendly Makeover in Pokemon Mashup Video

Another clever YouTuber has taken some time out of the day to create a new hilarious mashup. This time around, we see a supposed deleted scene from American Psycho reimagined with Pokemon cards. The video is absurd and pretty perfect for Christian Bale's Patrick Bateman character to get a little jealous over his coworker's Pok&#233mon cards. The latest fan-made video comes after some pretty stellar videos involving curious Porgs staring down the wrong end of a Lightsaber and Bruce Lee fighting in Fists of Fury with Lightsabers. This new American Psycho video is still good, even though there are no Lightsabers in it.

YouTuber Demi Adejuyigbe made the new video and claims that it was a deleted scene for the 10th anniversary DVD edition of American Psycho that Lionsgate never put out. Additionally, the scene in question was made to appeal to children of a younger audience to get them into the movie.

Epic Fan Video Combines Star Wars and Bruce Lee Wielding Lightsaber Nunchucks!

For years, the internet has famously mashed together some of our favorite cinematic universes, characters, etc. But finally, someone has put two of my personal favorite things together.  Bruce Lee and Star Wars.

Youtuber Patrick Nan has created what could be the deadliest combination in cinema. Bruce Lee armed with Lightsaber Nunchucks.

Nan re-edited a fight scene from Fist of Fury with some awesome laser sword action added in. Clearly, those chucks are a weapon for only the most talented Jedi masters. I mean they look awesome, but they can't be safe to handle. Enjoy the video!

Bruce Lee with Lightsabers Video Is Almost Better Than Last Jedi

Fists of Fury is regarded as one of the most iconic martial arts movies in history and now a creative YouTuber has given it a Star Wars makeover. The incredible video shows Bruce Lee in top form, using his nunchucks, but they've been turned into Lightsabers. Fists of Fury came out in 1972, 5 years ahead of Star Wars, and was originally called The Chinese Connection in the United States due to a production error. Now, Bruce Lee is seen as a Jedi master.

YouTuber Patrick Nan has taken existing footage of Bruce Lee and made one of the most epic Lightsaber videos in fan-made history. Similar videos have been made in the past, but the quality in Nan's video is unmatched from the graphics all the way down to the sound effects. The video starts with a message from Patrick Nan that says, "So I saw an image of Bruce Lee

The only thing cooler than watching Bruce Lee onscreen is seeing the martial arts icon kick it up a notch by breaking out the nunchucks. And seeing those nunchucks working like a lightsaber? That's a whole new level of awesome.

Thanks to YouTube user Patrick Nan, Bruce Lee fans now can see what happens when Lee's 1972 film Fist of Fury collides with Star Wars. Somewhat similar videos have been done in the past, but the quality of this one is unmatched.

Contemporary Chinese Cinema: "The Thousand Faces of Dunjia" and "Youth"

  • MUBI
Contemporary Chinese Cinema is a column devoted to exploring contemporary Chinese-language cinema primarily as it is revealed to us at North American multiplexes.The Thousand Faces of DunjiaOpening the same weekend as The Last Jedi, though on considerably fewer screens in North America, were two films from major Chinese filmmakers. The Thousand Faces of Dunjia is a CGI-driven fantasy epic by two legends of Hong Kong cinema: writer/producer Tsui Hark and director Yuen Woo-ping. Youth is a coming-of-age melodrama set amidst an arts troupe in the later years of the Cultural Revolution from Beijing-based director Feng Xiaogang. Dunjia had been billed throughout its production as a remake of Yuen’s 1982 feature The Miracle Fighters, and this, combined with Tsui’s facility with modern technology (as seen earlier this year in his Journey to the West: Demons Strike Back, a collaboration with another Hong Kong auteur, Stephen Chow), positioned

Jeffrey Dean Morgan Is Batman On Epic New Flashpoint Poster

The Dceu’s in a bit of trouble right now, that’s no secret. Justice League failed to impress both critically and financially and the studio’s future slate is looking a bit uncertain right now. Though they did announce what’s coming down the pipeline the other week at Comic-Con Experience Brazil, we’ve also heard that some of those films may not end up actually coming to fruition. If there is one project though that’s definitely a priority for Warner Bros., it’s Flashpoint.

For those who don’t know, in comic book lore, the “Flashpoint” arc sees Barry Allen zip back in time to save his mother, but he inadvertently triggers a domino effect that spreads throughout the DC Universe. And so, Thomas and Martha wind up surviving that infamous mugging, but the untimely death of Bruce leads the Wayne family down two very separate tracks: one to vigilantism,

Flashpoint fan art imagines Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Lauren Cohan as Batman and The Joker

While the box office underperformance of Justice League has raised some questions about the future of the DC Extended Universe, recent reports have suggested that Warner Bros. remains keen on moving forward with its Flashpoint movie.

For those unfamiliar with Flashpoint, the original comic book storyline sees a powerless Barry Allen waking in a vastly different DC universe – one where Wonder Woman and the Amazons are at war with Aquaman and the Atlanteans, Kal-El never became Superman, and Thomas Wayne has taken on the mantle of the Batman following the death of Bruce Wayne as a child (an event which also results in Martha Wayne becoming The Joker).

We have of course already seen Thomas and Martha Wayne in the Dceu, with The Walking Dead co-stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Lauren Cohan portraying the characters in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Morgan in particular has already expressed his interest in returning for Flashpoint.

Nightwing Movie Casting Announcement Coming in February?

The last we heard about the highly-anticipated Nightwing movie was last month, with director Chris McKay revealing on social media that there will be an open Nightwing casting call, although no specifics have been given about the casting process. Director Chris McKay has taken to Twitter once again, revealing that he expects the casting process for his Nightwing movie to be completed by February. Here's what the director had to say, when asked by a fan when they can expect casting information.

"I would expect to be able to tell you more concrete info on our movies progress around February."

A few weeks before it was revealed that an open casting call was happening, Power Rangers and Stranger Things Season 2 star Dacre Montgomery hinted he might have the Nightwing role, but naturally that was never confirmed. There was was also talk that Finn Wittrock may have the Nightwing role, but

Rumors Spreading That Jon Hamm Is Gunning Hard To Take Ben Affleck's Place As Batman

As the news continues to spread that Ben Affleck is wanting out as Batman, Jon Hamm is throwing his name in the running. The news comes from Radar Online, which notes that while Hamm and Affleck have been friends since working together on The Town, that Hamm thinks he's better suited for the role and has made it clear he's open to stepping in if Affleck is out.

This all comes from an unknown source who says Hamm has been in contact with director Matt Reeves, and that Reeves is a fan of Hamm's work:

“Matt thinks Jon is charming and was a big fan of Mad Men, so it seems like a great transition to him,”

I'm always wary of rumors like this, although this one isn't essentially saying much more than Jon Hamm wants to play Batman, so I don't see a lot of reason to sit around and debunk it.

Ezra Miller Says He’s Starting Work On Flashpoint “Pretty Soon”

Justice League didn’t do a whole lot right, but it did convince audiences that Ezra Miller is awesome as Barry Allen Aka the Flash. The Fantastic Beasts actor’s unique, highly comic take on the Scarlet Speedster was an instant hit and has made fans even more keen to see Flashpoint.

Ever since the film was announced at last summer’s San Diego Comic-Con, though, we haven’t heard any official word on it, meaning we have no idea when it’s going to arrive. However, a hint that Miller himself gave to a fan recently suggests that production on the project is about to get underway – meaning it could be with us sooner than we originally thought.

Twitter user Daniel Eliesen was lucky enough to meet some of the Justice League cast at this weekend’s Ace Comic-Con Long Island, where he asked Miller about Flashpoint. Though the

Jeffrey Dean Morgan Teases Batman Role In Flashpoint

With Justice League now in cinemas, DC fans are wondering what’s up next for the franchise. One of the most intriguing projects in the works is Flashpoint, the alt-universe movie starring Ezra Miller, and though we know very little about it at the moment, there’s been a lot of talk about Jeffrey Dean Morgan turning up as an alternate version of Batman in the film, mostly due to his appearance as Thomas Wayne in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Let’s bring you all up to speed, though, before going any further. In 2011, Geoff Johns penned a five-issue miniseries titled Flashpoint that saw the Scarlet Speedster go back in time to save his mother. In doing so, he royally screwed up the timeline, creating a world filled with darker heroes, including the alternate Batman who’s actually Thomas Wayne, and not Bruce. Eventually, the Flash (kind of) set things right,

Dazzling First Trailer For Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse Introduces Miles Morales

With all the talk of Sony’s live-action Spider-Man spinoff franchise, let’s not forget that the studio has an animated feature coming out in the near future, too. Titled Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, it will act as the cinematic debut of Miles Morales, Peter’s successor as Spider-Man in the comics, as played by Dope actor Shameik Moore. Joining him will be Liev Schreiber and Mahershala Ali and earlier today, Sony finally lifted the lid on the project, giving us the first trailer for the film.

Seen above (with the international version below), this is a wild and unexpected first look at Into the Spider-Verse. For one, the visuals are absolutely gorgeous, with a cel animation style that works perfectly. Again, it’s not at all what we were expecting, but we definitely dig it. There’s also the interesting tease that there are multiple versions of Spider-Man in this universe which,
