One of the biggest successes in the action genre today still stands with Jean-Claude Van Damme having revived his career greatly in the past decade adapting to grittier roles and projects with a certain appeal. Starring in Julien Leclercq’s The Bouncer certainly leaves one for the books in that regard and the action star’s fans in the UK will soon be able to gaze at his performance with a VoD, DVD and Blu-Ray release on April 8 from Dazzler Media.
Julien Leclerq’s new film, Lukas, is inbound for a release in France on August 22. It signals what looks to be a phenomenal return of late for actor Jean-Claude Van Damme who stars as a beleagured, grizzled, punchy bouncer forced in bed with Interpol to bring down a Belgian crime syndicate in order to reunite with his estranged daughter.
Ocean Films unveiled a new poster on Friday for the upcoming thriller which also casts Sami Bouajila, Sveva Alviti and French hip-hop recording artist, Kaaris. Check it out below!
The first official teaser and accommodation poster have both arrived and very befitting with one another in terms of mood and tone. Darkly-lit scenes with a visage of blue on its stronger contours lends it a refreshing noir look for a French production and to Van Damme’s benefit, looks damn good as well.
