"Samson": Chosen. Betrayed. Redeemed.

  • SneakPeek
Sneak Peek new images from "Samson", the upcoming biblical feature starring Jackson Rathbone, Billy Zane, Taylor James, Rutger Hauer and Lindsay Wagner, opening February 16, 2018:

"...after losing the love of his life to a cruel 'Philistine' prince, a long-haired young man with supernatural strength defends his people, sacrificing everything to avenge his love, his people and his faith..."

'Samson', meaning 'man of the sun' was the last of the judges of the ancient 'Israelites' mentioned in the 'Book of Judges' in the 'Old Testament'.

The biblical account states Samson was given immense strength to fight his enemies  and allow him to perform eventful feats, including the killing of a lion with his bare hands...

...slaying an entire army with only the jawbone of an ass, and destroying a temple of the Philistines with his bare hands.

Brigitte Nielsen Joins ‘Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets’ Series, Replacing Actor Busted for Child Porn (Exclusive)

Brigitte Nielsen Joins ‘Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets’ Series, Replacing Actor Busted for Child Porn (Exclusive)
Brigitte Nielsen has been cast in “Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets” superhero-themed TV action series, taking over the villain role vacated by Mark Salling, who was indicted last year for receiving and possessing child pornography.

Shankar, who is independently producing the half-hour show, told Variety that Nielsen plays a “modified version” of Salling’s character. The director re-shot scenes with the Danish-born thesp earlier this month and said “Gods and Secrets” is now in post-production.

“I just kind of reached out to her,” Shankar said, saying he’s been in touch with Nielsen ever since he was trying to put together an all-female movie adaptation of “The Expendables” five years ago.

Nielsen’s casting in “Gods and Secrets” was confirmed by her rep at Henderson Represents Inc. She’s perhaps best known for her turns in ’80s movies “Rocky IV,” “Red Sonya” and “Beverly Hills Cop II.”

Re-shooting the scenes with Nielsen required bringing back other

Film Review: ‘City of Dead Men’

Film Review: ‘City of Dead Men’
The combination of raves, hallucinogens, wild youth, and pagan rituals in a creepy former mental asylum ought to add up to something a lot more exciting than “City of Dead Men.” This quasi-horror feature debut for director Kirk Sullivan and scenarist Andrew Poston features slick visual packaging on modest means. But there’s not much substance to be found in its murky story of a rootless American getting involved with some vaguely rebellious, possibly demon-worshiping skateboarder types in Medellín. Though VOD outfit Gravitas Ventures is opening the U.S.-Colombia co-production on a handful of U.S. screens Dec. 16, including Hollywood’s Arena CineLounge and San Francisco’s Roxie, it’s sure to make more of a (still-limited) impact on demand.

Michael (Jackson Rathbone of the “Twilight” series) is in a sense back home — he was born in Medellín, then shipped north to an unloved California military father when his Colombian mother died.

Official Trailer for Horror Film 'City of Dead Men' Starring Diego Boneta

"Welcome to the house of the Dead Men." Gravitas Ventures has debuted an official trailer for the horror thriller City of Dead Men, set mostly at an eerie psychiatric hospital in Colombia. The horror film stars Diego Boneta (from "Scream Queens" and Rock of Ages) as an American tourist who ends up in the town of Medellin in Colombia, befriending a local woman (played by Maria Mesa) who introduces him to "group of young misfits" that call themselves the "Dead Men". The leader of the group is Jacob, played by Jackson Rathbone, a mysterious figure who brings the newcomer to their home at an abandon psychiatric hospital for children on the outskirts of the city. Of course, things get weird and he starts to feel the presence of the kids. It's hard to tell what's going on in this, and it seems like it may be a big mess, but give it a shot anyway.
