Tomorrow, German action star Mike Moeller will be attending a star-studded premiere for his latest martial arts thrill ride, One Million K(L)icks. At least this week though, it comes to mind for its co-star, fellow German stunt impressario and Moeller cohort, Thomas Hacikoglu who still happens to be earning accolades for his craft for director Oliver Juhrs‘s 2012 shortfilm, The Ego, a story about a disenfranchised assassin internally conflicted about his approach to his new kill assignment.

There are some pretty big stunts in this one by Hacikoglu opposite actor and stuntman Alois Knapps, and even the 2014 Awards For The German Academy Of Television took notice. And considering Juhrs co-directed Moeller’s new film, I say it’s a hell of a way to kickstart an awesome weekend movie premiere!

Good luck to you all over there guys!
