FIVE A DAY: And Here Are The Final Five!
As far as obscure movie titles go, the truth couldn’t be more prevalent than for Airborn Entertainment’s own Terry Cheung whose zero-budgeted indie martial arts thriller, Shinobi Code continues to reside in our collective brains like an impossible itch to scratch. In lamens’ terms, info is currently nil, but thankfully that won’t be all for its lead actor, world-champion freerunner Ryan Doyle who is the focal center for Andrew Goth’s upcoming sci-fi fantasy, DxM.
Action star Marko Zaror is no different from any of the action stars we ought to keep an eye on for the new year. While we await to see what comes of his newest superhero take for Riccardo Gabrielli R.’s new Zambo Dende short, the star of The and last year’s Redeemer dares to destroy the world as the key villain in Michael D. Olmos’s latest, The Green Ghost. The film is inspired by real-life car salesman Charlie Clark’s earlier webseries work, here and now and back in costume opposite Zaror and a number of other characters in a story of said car salesman who must uses his newfound powers – endowed from Aztec crystals, to defeat an evil warlord and his minions bent on bringing back Montezuma’s reign. We’re light on footage as it is in the most recent teaser, but it does the trick so far in teasing some amazing action for a family-friendly audience of all ethnicities – as per Clark’s M.O. for the original webseries.

You have to give it to Russian action star and film producer Alexander Nevsky whose fervor and love for the genre remain boundless. Forging friendships with folks like the cast of his latest international thriller, Showdown In Manila is exemplary of this fact with this as the first of at least two titles coming down the pipeline with action star Mark Dacascos starring as well as making his directorial debut.
Lastly of this list and far from the least, while I could have included any number of Marvel or DC titles in this list, I think the most central one so far has to be Suicide Squad from director David Ayer. It definitely bares some significance with respect to what Warner Bros. has in store for its forthcoming Justice League films in lieu of Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice, and I’m keen on seeing where it all goes. Besides, comic-con trailer was absolutely fantastic among a few reasons why it out-performed Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice during this past summer in San Diego.
