2.0: Your Smartphones Are Out To Kill You And Only S.S. Rajinikanth Can Stop Them In The Official Trailer
If there was any doubt to the matter that Lyca Productions would deliver on its ‘Magnum Opus’, they pretty much quelled the issue upon releasing the first wave of Shankar’s 2.0 teasers back in September. The official trailer is now online however, and to that effect, details the narrative as sick as ever in inducing hardcore sci-fi good-versus-evil in the mix.

2.0: These Posters Really Are For The Birds!
2010’s Enthiran was a major hit from Sun Pictures and director Shankar. Actor S.S. Rajinkanth took the dual mantle in the title role, playing a scientist whose latest creation, an android named Chitti, sparks not only fascination, but corporate rivalry in lieu of its growing autonomy.

WARRIOR Prepares A Hindi Remake With Lionsgate
The martial arts action genre continues to play heavily in India’s highly productive market despite anyone’s notice of these films beyond their borders. So, it still a delightful surprise to see such films come about, and much to the chagrin of some critics, that includes remakes which are pretty typical in Indian cinema as directors sometimes remake their own films or that of other directors, local or abroad.
In this instance, we take the name Gavin O’Connor whose 2011 feature-length mixed martial arts drama, Warrior, was a critical hit, but flopped in the U.S.. This week, that film falls at at the feet of Bollywood writer and director Karan Malhotra for the Hindi remake with lead actor Sidharth Malhotra (pictured above) and potential addition, action hero Akshay Kumar respectively portraying the roles previously played by Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton.
The original film’s distributors at Lionsgate are producing the remake with Endemol India to retell the story that previously featured fight choreography by J.J. Perry (Haywire, The Expendables 3) and centered on Hardy and Edgerton as two brothers, one a former Marine and the other a former UFC fighter-turned-schoolteacher, on opposite ends of a three-way family rift stemmimg from their abusive childhood at the behest of their father, played by Nick Nolte. Driven by their own motives, the two brothers eventually find themselves competing in the same mixed martial arts tournament with the grand prize of 5 million dollars to the winner.
In my opinion, not a lot of people are very familiar with Indian action cinema as it gets overlooked by a lot of other films from Hollywood, Hong Kong and the like. But with Lionsgate helping out the project, we’ll see how much publicity this one gets in the states. Granted it might gain its footing mostly with filmgoers familiar with Bollywood cinema, but it could go as far as the film festival circuit in North America much like Vidyut Jammwal’s 2013 hit, Commando, and grow its audience from there. But, time will tell.
In the meantime, Malhotra is currently expected to dazzle audiences at home with director Mohit Suri’s latest romantic murder thriller, Ek Villain, which releases natively on June 27. Check out the trailer below!

The Trailer For HOLIDAY Brews Quirky Romance With A Touch Of Energizing Action
The task of keeping up with the pacing of movie production in Southeast Asia, particularly in India, can be pretty challenging. As it stands, the industry over there tends to generate close to a thousand of these films every year, including some pretty big actioners, with the quality, size and scale of stuntwork almost consistently increasing with each film, a trend that sites pretty normal for bonafide action hero Akshay Kumar who happens to be a pretty big deal for his fanbase at home.
This summer, that trend continues with the latest action romance drama from director A.R. Murugadoss titled Holiday, a remake of his 2012 feature, Thuppaki ( and also one of three known remakes of the same film to date) which now sees Kumar in the lead as a military captain whose short-lived vacation puts him back in the line of fire against terrorist cells. As per the usual caveats of Bollywood cinema, the film bares its own share of colorful and lively song and dance. Fortunately, action film junkies do get their day as well, with Kumar in his element under Hollywood stunt coordinator Greg Powell (Fast And Furious 6, all Harry Potter films, The Avengers: Age Of Ultron). And judging by the most recent trailer which debuted in February, action fans shouldn’t be too worried.
Holiday also stars Sonakshi Sinha in her latest role with Kumar since the 2013 production of Boss, along with Freddy Daruwala who plays the villain. The film hits cinemas domestically on June 6.
Virat (Akshay Kumar) is among a battalion of military officers that comes to Mumbai on vacation. Virat is also a secret Defence Intelligence Agent who cannot lie low, much to the irritation of his friend and sub inspector. During a bus ride, an attempt to frisk passengers for a lost wallet leads Virat to something much bigger. Within minutes, the bus is blown into pieces and he helps cops nab the carrier of the bomb, who escapes from the hospital only to be caught by Virat again. Using tact, Virat follows one clue at a time hoping to track down the terrorist on whose orders the sleeper cell terrorists plan to cause mayhem in Mumbai.
Make Way For Akshay Kumar In The New Trailer For BOSS
Hot off the heels of the release of his newest film, Once Upon A Time In Mumbai…Again, comes a new trailer for big time Bollywood action hero Akshay Kumar‘s latest Hindi-language comedic, high-flying spectacle, Boss. The film is a remake of a 2010 Malayalam film titled Pokiri Raja (The Rogue King) to which Kumar bought the rights in early 2012.
Producer Vipul Shah: COMMANDO 2 Is In The Works!
If the excitement of watching Indian action star Vidyut Jammwal light up the screen in the trailer and subsequent release for director Dilip Ghosh’s Commando: A One Man Army wasn’t enough, then prepare yourself for even more Kalari-stylized action from writer and producer Vipul Amrutlal Shah. According to several sources, the first film has garnered so much success that Shah and Jammwal are now busting out a bigger and larger-scale sequel.
