Kung Fu Panda 3 Trailer and Images

We were pleasantly surprised with the 2nd Kung Fu Panda, it might not be on the level of a How To Train Your Dragon that we anxiously anticipate but whenever we sit down to watch it, it’s always a fun ride.

Most of the actors are back with a few new surprises. Check out the trailer and some promo images.

 

 

 

In 2016, one of the most successful animated franchises in the world returns with its biggest comedy adventure yet, KUNG FU PANDA 3. When Po’s long-lost panda father suddenly reappears, the reunited duo travels to a secret panda paradise to meet scores of hilarious new panda characters.  But when the supernatural villain Kai begins to sweep across China defeating all the kung fu masters, Po must do the impossible—learn to train a village full of his fun-loving, clumsy brethren to become the ultimate band of Kung Fu Pandas!

Kung Fu Panda 3 is set to land in UK cinemas March 2016.

Kung Fu Panda 3features the voice talents of Jack Black as Po, Bryan Cranston as Po’s long-lost panda Father Li plus Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman, Jackie Chan, Seth Rogen, Lucy Liu and more.

Ep 32: Apocalypse Jaa or not your father’s Martial Arts movie

In this episode our gang of Upodcast Shaolin Monks is joined by the Ronin samourai Danny Bowes from Tor, taking you on a trip through crescent kicks and flying monkey styles through the different stages of the martial arts movie.

We start off speaking about some of the legends that shaped the genre from Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan to  Sonny Chiba. To action stars that took it one step further like Jean Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris and we even take a detour through Michael Dudikoff and Steven Seagal (not for long though)

The Gang then focuses its chi on the nouveau vogue of martial artists that have taken over the reins and we stand before the elephant shaped throne of Thai Action Star Tony Jaa.

We discuss his filmography in detail speaking about all of the Ong Bak movies, his difficult times and possible comeback.

Swiftly like the shadow we move to Donny Yen and the Ip- man series and finish off with Indonesian up and comer Iko Owais and his Pentak Silat debut Merentau.

Lots of excitement, and wear a helmet whilst listening to this episode as the verbal kicks might just knock you out!

Trailer: The Expendables

The Expendables Teaser Poster

Since the age of 6, I have imagined many different variations of this movie,  although sometimes in my little boy’s imagination Jackie Chan might be part of the gang or some days Muhammad Ali would kick Hitler‘s ass. It might have taken them over 20 year but thank the Gods of Californian muscle toning the trailer for The Expendables is finally online.

Check it out after the jump!

Movies to look forward to in 2010

With the release of the Last Airbender trailer during the Superbowl (The SuperBowl has something to do with American Football a game no non-american can ever understand, but the also have cool movie trailers and Janet Jackson Nip Slip so wholesome family entertainment for young and old), I have now been able to see snippets of the 3 movies that I am most looking forward to this year.

Here is a run down:

The Last Airbender

I still want to call this movie Avatar but I guess M.Night had to change the name to The Last Airbender after James Cameron achieving cinematic history. I’m probably one of the last Shyamalan apologists left after The Happening and Lady in the Water but I still look forward to his movies. He’s always had an amazing eye for visuals and drama and he is so very talented. And now since he’s adapting one of my favorite animated saga’s (Close second to Knights of the Zodiac and Dragonball) I am waving my little Shyamalan Flag.

I hope he get’s to make all 3 chapters of the movie like the animated show but he will have to battle the onslaught of geek hate and prove the detractors of his last few flicks. Plus he made Unbreakable which is one of the best superhero movies ever made…

Here is the full trailer

The Expendables

Early reviews are appearing on the interweb and it seems that this is going to be a triple whammy for Stallone after Rocky Balboa and Rambo. It’s the perfect timing for these kind of re-imagined 80’s action thriller and Sly is able to tap into those feelings of nostalgia of 20-30 year old who grew up with that RamboII poster where he’s holding a Rocket Launcher. Personally the more control Stallone has the more be it directing or writing, the more I seem to enjoy his movies.

The cast is for this movie is a once in a life time experience and we can keep bitching about Jean Claude Van Damme, Jackie Chan or Steven Seagal not being part… but where is the Michael Dudikoff fan club? Shouldn’t he be included too??

This is probably not the official trailer but it hits the sweet spot. The Expendables has a planned release date for August.

Inception

I have no clue what this movie is about or what this trailer means but I just need one name to go from a Pas de Bouree  followed by a Grand Jetee and that name is Christopher Nolan. To me he is one of the most exciting director since Tarantino and Paul Thomas Anderson. He’s had a perfect record (ok, maybe Insomnia I liked a little bit less but Pacino made up for it by being Pacino and Robin Williams was very creepy but not One Hour Photo creepy which is the perfect level of creepiness).

I’m not a fan of Leo but with Nolan behind the camera, I know I dont need to worry. and the trailer is freaking amazing!

Runners up:

The A Team

Iron Man 2


There are a few more movies coming out that excite me but the trailer of those are not out yet. ( eg Black Swan, Looper, Tron Legacy)

What movies are you looking forward to this year?
