GORGEOUS TRAILER FOR ASIAN EPIC "THE SORCERER AND THE WHITE SNAKE"! "LEAF MEN" FROM THE AUTHOR OF "ICE AGE"! CHUCK NORRIS AND ALL THE 90'S ACTION STARS IN "EXPENDABLES 2"! LUCAS TILL & NICOLE KIDMAN IN "STOKER"

Even though not many people have been amazed by THE EXPENDABLES movie, the sequel is already in plan, and the interesting thing is that they've decided to gather all the possible 80's and 90's action stars in it: according to "MovieWeb" the latest
to join the cast which already includes Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham,  Arnold Schwarzenegger,  Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke and Bruce Willis are John Travolta and Chuck Norris :) The film should start shooting in a month or so over in Bulgaria! According to "Beyond Hollywood" young Lucas Till, whom we loved as Havok in XMEN FIRST CLASS has joined the cast of STOKER which already includes Nicole Kidman and Matthew Goode. Based on the script by actor Wentworth Miller the film will follow a girl who is mourning the death of her father when her mysterious uncle suddenly appears in her life. The film will have horror elements as well since this uncle is some kind of unusual vampire.

Here's a nice piece of news: talented filmmaker Chris Wedge who
gave us the lovely, heartwarming and charming animated saga ICE AGE and made ROBOTS after that as well, is currently preparing a new animated treat for us called LEAF MEN. To be released in cinemas in May 2011 according to "The Hollywood Reporter", the story will be based on a bestselling children's book by William Joyce. This 3D animated adventure will revolve around a colony of doodle bugs who call upon the LEAF MEN for help in vanquishing the nefarious Spider Queen.

Over at my dear Jaccsy's, I've come upon this super magnificent trailer for stunning Asian epic fantasy THE SORCERER AND THE WHITE SNAKE. With mindblowing special effects,
stunning visuals, breathtaking sets and costumes and dreamlike scenes, this huge epic will premiere in Asia this September starring Jet Li and Eva Huang. The film is based on an old tale about a White Snake which came to the human world as she was longing for human life and married a scholar named Xu Xian. However, such
marriage was opposed by Fa Hai, a Buddhist monk in Jinshan Temple, who maintained that coexistence of human and evil spirit was unacceptable. He then suppressed the white snake under Leifeng Pagoda at the bank of the West Lake of Hangzhou.

  1. For action fans who grew up in the 80's like me, Expendables 2 should be a blast.

  3. 80's action heroes back again -- can't they just bow out of the "action" gracefully? It's either going to be massive wrinkles or solid botox. Either way it's gross.
    Loved the trailer.

  5. Wow, The Sorcerer and the White Snake is very lush and beautiful. Looks like a good fantasy movie. I hope we get it with subtitles on Netflix someday.

  6. it is really beautiful, I've been watching quite a lot of lovely Asian movies recently, RED CLIFF and THE CURSE OF THE GOLDEN FLOWER being my favourite ones :) Last night I watched DETECTIVE DEE AND THE MYSTERY OF THE PHANTOM FLAME and it was a great film too!

  9. Stoker sounds interesting, and Nicole Kidman being in the cast makes it even more appealing to me

    As for Expendables 2, i was one of those not amazed by the first one...i personally found the script very uneven. The sequel isn't going on my anticipated list anytime soon

    Asians really know how to make a visually stunning movie!

    @Mary
    I'll arrange your match with Schwartzy, but we must train you for a month or two before it :P

    @Dirty
    it can't be bad if Wenty wrote it :)
    yep, I'm not watching EXPANDABLES either!

  11. Leaf Men? What will they come up with next?
    Couldn't get the trailer to run, but sounds like another lyrical martial arts film with lots of slow motion and people flying through the air.

  14. This trailer is beautiful, such stunning imagery and of course the actors are exquisite. Can't wait for Stoker, it sounds like delicious dark fantasy.

    Expendables was a fun experience I don't care to repeat. ;)

  16. Sort of embarrassed to say that I'm pretty pumped to see Van Damme in Expendables 2. I didn't even really enjoy the first film all that much, but I love action movies, so why not?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Expendables 2? I am not going to bother with that one!! I really think they have money to burn in hollywood sometimes!!

    The Sorcerer and the White Snake looks coolio and the gang!

    Nice info Dezzy!

  23. I thought Jet Li had retired from making these period peices?

    ReplyDelete
  24. I wish he had, can't say he's one of my favourite of Asian actors :( I prefer Takeshi Kaneshiro!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Wow! The Sorcerer and the White Snake is on my MUST HAVE RIGHT NOW list. :) Fantasy style Kung-Fu flicks might be my favorite thing in the whole world. Thanks for letting us know about this one, Dez!

  26. The White Snake looks amazing. Expendables 2 will be one I'll be giving a miss.

  27. @Stephanie
    glad you liked the trailer, Steph! :)

    @Michael
    that seems to be the general opinion on both projects :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. That leafmen looks kinda odd...don't you think?

    The snake, on the other hand,looks promising and I haven't seen Jet Li lately

    ReplyDelete
  29. You haven't see Jet Li lately? :) I think he's in every other Asian film, sometimes I'm afraid he will jump out of my fridge too :)
