If there’s one thing you can count on in the world of video games it’s that if something is successful, there will be copies. With the massive success of Street Fighter II, it was no surprise the market was flooded with fighting games, each with their own unique additions to help differentiate them from their competitors. For Mortal Kombat it was the gore and fatalities, Virtua Fighter took fighting games into 3D, and for DOA: Dead Or Alive, it was a blisteringly fast fighting engine and boobs. So many boobs.
Banking on his promise to deliver a full trilogy as of a few years ago, director Gordon Chan has returned to the fray with the latest teaser for The Four 3D, featuring the return of our cast including Deng Chao, Crystal Liu, Anthony Wong and many more. The film marks the final installation of the franchise based on a series of novels by Malaysian author Wen Ruian about four unique detectives who use their skills to solve unsolvable crimes and apprehend powerful criminals, incidentally swept into what the film deems as their final battle with an ultimate evil force.
The reputation of the Four constables survives, but since Emotionless’s (Crystal Liu Yifei) departure, there have been changes at the Divine Constabulary. The four Coldblood (Deng Chao), Iron Hands (Collin Chou), Life Snatcher (Ronald Cheng), rescue Zhuge Zhengwo (Anthony Wong) from An Yunshan’s mountain fortress, then with the Emperor and Di armies, they attack.
But An Yunshan absorbs their power, which means the constables and their allies now face their most lethal opponent yet, a nearly invincible kung fu master who won’t stop until he has absolute power…
The Four 3 bows domestically on on August 22. Check out the new trailer below as well as a batch of stills from the new film courtesy of Enlight Pictues.
A second trailer has aired for Xu Hong Hui‘s new film Ameera which releases in China on April 4, 2014. We got a teaser a few weeks ago with a plot that sees actress Patricia Hu playing an agent on a desperate mission to foil a terrorist attack after failing her previous assignmemt. Regarding both the teaser and today’s new trailer, while the suggested plot sounds good, there are some goofy looking its in them, including a seeingly mad villain that looks straight out of a Hanna-Barbera cartoon.
I don’t know what this says about the film as a whole, but I am eager to learn more. And if there’s anything that pops up, I’ll be sure to share it.
Also, The Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions actor Collin Chou is in it. So that should help feed the curiousity some.
Taiwanese filmmaker Xu Hong Hui‘s latest action thriller, Ameera, is hitting the cinemas in China on April 4, 2014, centered on a female agent who sets out to prevent a terrorist attack after failing her last mission. While there doesn’t seem to be much else to the premise, we do get a batch of stills and a fresh new trailer below which may or may not be self-descriptive depending on your knowledge of the film itself. We also get a glimpse of actress Patricia Hu back on the big screen with international action actor and co-star of The Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions and Well Go USA’s latest release of Special ID, Collin Chou, headlining the film in classic kicking action since their late 2013 appearance in Angel Warriors.
