Up next is a trailer announcement for Max Payne: Retribution, from actor and director Leroy Kincaide (Freeman: New World Order). Inspired by the first two titles in the original game franchise from Remedy, the project arrives two years in the making with £1500 raised on Indiegogo, and is finally poised for a 2017 release. Kincaide stars opposite main actor Joan James Muixi in the title role, along with Gracie Tyrell and Jon Campling for its 2017 release while Kincaide and the folks over at Nocturnal Films work on plotting hopefully larger prospects for the new 35 minute short between now and then.
Following that is a trailer that caught me completely and totally off guard on Monday as I was moving onto other things. Contracts 3 is the name, also arriving in 2017 and while the plot is unknown, the project itself is also the biggest currently ever achieved for filmmaker, actor and stuntman Alex Chung at his Foolhouse Films banner. Chung is a proven talent at delivering great drama as well as action and fight choreography on film as he’s consistently shown in the years following his rise at Eclipse Stunts in Canada. Don’t take my word for it though, the trailer is all you need and it plays last in the playlist below.
Lastly, we have a trailer sent to us by director Johnny Balazs for his newest shortfilm, Dancer. The project is part of an effort on behalf of the folks over at Australia-based Prima Lux Films, with a story of a man, infatuated by a local club stripper with aspirations for a new life, finds himself fighting for her freedom away from Melbourne’s seedy criminal underbelly. Balazs’s last co-directed effort with Rob Baard in The Ninja Immovable Heart, drew a more mixed response among viewers while Dancer certainly looks to fare much better for moviegoers judging by the slick trailer which you can now view among all four mentioned in the following playlist.
