comic book news
It is not often that you see adult entertainment performers step into other aspects of film and acting, and there are quite a few people out there who are doing just that. If you would like an example, then look no further than actress and ex-porn star Céline Tran (formerly known as “Katsuni”), who is now taking her interests into the fun-filled world of comic book lore with Heartbreaker, a new edition of 619 Label’s French comic book anthology, Doggybags, from author, cartoonist and artistic director, Run (a.k.a. William Fox).
And how do you suppose they would market this new installation? Well, the new shortfilm promo below should answer that question, directed by Run and featuring Tran in the lead role as our black-clad sword-wielding, vampire vaporizing superheroine in a full-on assault that takes bullet ballet to a whole new level of sexy!
Wild Stunts (Europe) member Vincent Gatinaud designed the action and VFX with stunt and fight coordinators Kefi Abrikh and Mathieu Lardot.
French comic book aficionados will get first dibs on the new installment beginning June 13. In the meantime, check out the red-hot, NSFW footage in the embed below, and let’s hope this concept gets some feature treatment!
As you might know, if you have been keeping up with the latest bits on X-Men: Days Of Future Past, Twentieth Century Fox is about to launch the X-Men X-Perience, a massive promotional campaign tour in select cities around the world to be hosted by a select handful of stars from the film. The campaign is being notably spearheaded by Hugh Jackman who reprises his role once again in this seventh installation of Marvel pseudo-immortal franchise character, Wolverine, whose off-screen demise may finally be met in the upcoming serial publication of “Death Of Wolverine” when it hits comic book store shelves this September.
For now, the character will live on through film as per the forthcoming release of X-Men: Days Of Future Past in theaters on May 23, 2014. And as such, Jackman decided to drop by the latest broadcast of WWE Raw, standing center ring with Dolph Ziggler who suddenly found themselves confronted by self-appointed “intellectual savior to the masses,” Damien Sandow in a homemade Magneto costume.
For those who don’t watch wrestling but are looking forward to a good laugh ahead of the film’s release, the skit is worth a look. You can check that out below as well as the latest Wolverine power video and a new TV spot featuring actress Jennifer Lawrence.
