Registration is currently closed for the Sci-Fi London 48 Hour Film Challenge and there are a few entries floating around the interwebs as the event ends on May 4. One of those entries is the latest one-off short film K & K Productions’ own George and Harry Kirby called D.R.Y. which sees actor Aaron Ly in a tragic love triangle that leads to a time-bending one-on-seven epic fight to the finish.
Actress Kunjue Li and actor Bruce Chong also star in this latest vital gem which also comes with its own behind-the-scenes link in the channel as well. The new short also arrives as genre fans are within days from witnessing the long-awaited new trailer for K & K’s upcoming Dragonball Z fan project, Frieza Saga. And there will be more discussion on that project in the coming weeks, so stick around. So, while you’re here, watch D.R.Y. in the embed below where you may also subscribe.

Ninjas. Ninjas everywhere. And director Masanori Inoue is taking you back in time in an era chock full of them in his latest action comedy directorial outing, Ninjani Sanjo! Mirai e no Tatakai.

During the Edo period, the group of five Kazaha, Fuuto, Houji, Sora and Kisuke have been training to becoming ninjas. But, the world has become a peaceful place without war and they are facing dissolution. Wanting to be of service, even if it’s just once, they set out head hunting the lord of the Koriyama Shinden clan, a story that would develop into a major incident.

Well, I do not know about the rest of you but this was a delightfully surprising bit of news for me to find out!
Coming Soon has unleashed a new clip from G.I. Joe: Retaliation featuring Ray Park and Byung-Hun Lee as Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow, respectively. The clip is similar to what we have seen so far in trailers, with both characters clashing in the same hallway leading to an epic battle between rival ninjas that will help determine the fate of the Joes as they clash with the COBRA forces once again.
