WEEKEND NEWS BLOW OUT

SEIZED

Some positive news to start with here, a trailer for a new Scott Adkins film.  A man who assuredly goes to work to entertain his fans.  The film is Seized.  Directed by Isaak Florentine, it has the tried and tested maniac out for revenge formula.

Synopsis: A former special forces agent’s son is kidnapped and must now wipe out three dangerous crime syndicates, if he wants to see his son alive again.

No matter the budget, all Scott Adkins movies always have a shot at being sleepers by virtue of merely being Scott Adkins movies.

WELCOME TO SUDDEN DEATH

In the spiritual successor to Jean Claude Van Damme’s Sudden Death, we have the trailer for Welcome to Sudden Death, starring none other than Michael Jai White.  Its IMDb page actually lists it as a direct sequel, but there are probably few if any connections.

Directed by Dallas Jackson, the film is released September 29th.  There is no synopsis yet, but it’s pretty clear what will happen from the trailer.

WARRIOR SEASON 2

Here is the trailer for the second season of Warrior.

Season 2 will debut in October exclusively on Cinemax and MaxGo, featuring another batch of action-packed episodes. Here’s how the premium network describes the upcoming season: “The series follows Ah Sahm (Andrew Koji), a martial arts prodigy who emigrates from China to San Francisco under mysterious circumstances. After proving his worth as a fighter, Ah Sahm becomes a hatchet man for the Hop Wei, one of Chinatown’s most powerful Tongs (Chinese organized crime family). Season two follows rival Chinatown Tongs as they fight for dominance amidst the growing anti-Chinese fervor that threatens to destroy them all.

THE LAST OF US

The Last of Us video game was extraordinarily well received by critics and fans alike.  This led to plans for Netflix to produce a live action TV series on the game, which is set in a post apocalyptic world.  However, the sequel to the game, The Last of Us Part II has drawn considerable fan uproar.

While the game was game was uniformly well received from critics, the reaction quite different among fans, who were upset with a relentless and miserable infusion of far-left political screening.  Many blamed the game’s creator Neill Druckmann for creating an ideological lecture first, video game second.

It’s bad news for the TV series then, potentially, as the BBC claims that Neill Druckmann is ‘heavily involved’ in it.  Hooray for our escapism telling us all what pieces of shit we are!
