BAADASSSSS!   |  

Chloe Moretz As Hit Girl In Kick-Ass 2

Mark Millar, the comic book scribe who created the series the Kick-Ass movies were based on, revealed recently that he had discuss the possibility of a solo Hit-Girl movie with Welsh action filmmaker Gareth Evans (The Raid). Played by Chloë Grace Moretz in the 2010 original directed by Matthew Vaughn and its inferior 2013 sequel, Kick-Ass 2, Hit-Girl was by far the breakout character of the little superhero franchise that almost was.

The idea of making a spin-off with the foul-mouthed teenage vigilante was taken seriously by Millar and Evans briefly.

BAADASSSSS!   |  

This is Spinal Tap

Hey there freaks and geeks, BAADASSSSS! is here with a list of the best films I saw in 2014. Instead of doing the traditional top ten list as originally planned, I decided to take a cue from the great Nigel Tufnel and crank this sucker up to 11 (yes, I am aware that some people are doing top 20 lists, top 50 lists, top 100 lists, etc., but I didn’t see enough of last year’s releases to make a list quite that long). So you will find on this list my ten favorite films that were released last year, one that wasn’t, and my three choices for the worst of the year. And the hell with round numbers.

Three Actors From ‘The Raid’ Will Appear In ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’

The Raid 2

Star Wars: The Force Awakens already tops many critics most anticipated lists, and with good reason. But the latest news is giving us another reason to be excited for this very highly anticipated film.

If the reports are true, three of the principle actors from The Raid and The Raid 2: Iko Uwais, Yayan Ruhian (who played Mad Dog and Prakoso in the films), and Cecep Arif Rahman (who played “The Assassin” and had a fight scene towards the end of The Raid 2) have roles in the film, and could be involved in a much larger capacity. And if you have seen either of Gareth Evans’ films, that means the action sequences in J.J. Abrams‘ upcoming movie should be awesome. Hit the jump for the full report.

‘The Raid 2’ Deleted Scene and Clip Show How Bloody Rival Gangs and Car Chases Can Be

The Raid 2 Berandal Teaser Poster Header

The Raid 2 is just one of those action films that you have to watch this year. Following the events of the first Raid, Rama (Iko Uwais) is now assigned to be an undercover cop who has to infiltrate one of Indonesia’s most dangerous crime families. In an effort to keep everyone he loves safe, Rama agrees to the assignment, not knowing how dangerous or how deep he has to go underground.

I usually refrain from posting clips, but having seen the movie already — and one of the clips being shown is actually a deleted scene — I think it will be okay. If anything, these clips don’t even cover how bloody The Raid 2 really is. And honestly, with a 150-minute run time, I think I can understand why director Gareth Evans may have excluded the rival gang shootout scene. So hit the jump to check them out.

‘The Raid 2′ Trailer: Gareth Evans’ Bloody Sequel Pits Two Crime Families Fighting Over Jakarta

The Raid 2: Berandal trailer header

I’m glad that we are getting The Raid 2: Berandal. For me, it’s great to finally see that Indonesian Cinema can share a spot alongside other great movies during film festivals like Sundance Film Festival or Toronto International Film Festival. And with the film making its big screen debut in just a few weeks at Sundance, fans are eagerly awaiting to see what will happen to the film’s hero, Rama (Iko Uwais), after his crew was decimated trying to raid a 30 apartment building occupied by drug lords, thieves, and criminals. And maybe some electric action scenes too.

The sequel will find Rama infiltrating the same crime ring and getting caught in between two crime families who are fighting over control over the city of Jakarta. Unlike the first trailer which featured Uwais punching the wall at a furious pace, this trailer has new footage, and shows the war between the two families and how far Rama must go to take them down. Hit the jump to see the full trailer.

‘The Raid 2’ Begins Production; New Behind-The-Scenes Images Released
eelyajekiM   |  

The Raid 2 Iko Uwais

The Raid lived up to the promise of being one of the most thrilling actioners of 2012. Immediately after the film’s success at the Toronto Film Festival and Sundance, Sony Pictures Classic bought the rights to distribute, and when it finally opened in theaters it was a box office smash. Naturally a sequel, The Raid 2 (The Raid 2: Berandal in Indonesia; Berandal translates into Thug in English), was greenlit to continue the story of Rama (Iko Uwais), a rookie police officer and one of the few who survived an onslaught of drug dealers, criminals, and other degenerates in the tight spaces of an apartment complex.

Now production for the sequel has commenced. Gareth Evans, who returns as director for the sequel, has promised us that The Raid 2 will be a departure in many ways and that we won’t be seeing the same sort of action sequences we saw in the first film. With cameras already rolling, we are getting our first look at behind the scenes action of the sequel and a first still that confirms that the sequel will take place hours after the events of the first film.

Collider has provided the first look at the film, featuring returning star Uwais reprising his role as Rama. Check out the photos here below.
