UFC Champ Ronda Rousey Teams Up With The Raid's Iko Uwais For Actioner 'Mile 22'

At UFC 184 last weekend, Ronda Rousey demonstrated again that she’s easily the best women’s MMA fighter in the world by defeating clear-cut number one contender Cat Zingano in 14 seconds. 14 seconds. Hell, she’s the most dominant champ in the sport in any division, male or female. She’s also following in the footsteps of Gina Carano and kicking a lot of ass on the big screen as well. Last summer she showed up in Expendables 3, next months joins Vin Diesel and company in Furious 7, and we just heard a report that she’s teaming up with Iko Uwais, one of the baddest and most underrated action stars in the world.

Marvel's 'Daredevil' Reveals Vincent D'Onofrio's Kingpin In These New Photos

There aren’t many actors who can play Wilson Fisk, aka The Kingpin, in the Marvel Universe. The man is a monster, just a behemoth that routinely kicks the crap out of superheroes with his bare hands and his evil schemes. We’ll have to wait until the April 10 premiere of Netflix’s Daredevil to see if Vincent D’Onofrio can truly pull it off, but in these new photos, he certainly looks the part.

These 'Furious 7' TV Spots Take You From Fast To Fury To Crazy

If what we’ve seen thus far is to be believed, Furious 7 certainly does take crazy to a whole other level. Seriously, this is like everything I’ve ever wanted out of a movie. There are cars parachuting out of planes, cars jumping from skyscraper to skyscraper, and these two new TV spots just make me drool uncontrollably.

Bruce Lee Is Getting An Official, Family-Sanctioned Biopic

Bruce Lee is the ultimate cinematic badass. You can make arguments for a handful of others to take that throne, but it’s nigh on impossible to come up with one truly knocks him out of the top spot. Over the years there have been a number of biopics—the wildly inaccurate Dragon, Manfred Wong’s Bruce Lee, My Brother (aka Young Bruce Lee and a few other titles), and he even shows up in the Ip Man films—but now we’re getting an official story complete with backing from his family.

Check Out This Grim Extended Look At 'An American Serial Killer In Manila'

With a title like An American Serial Killer in Manila, you have our attention. And after taking a gander at this extended promo for the film, which is still in development, I want someone to give me a bunch of money so I can give it to these folks to finish their damn movie. Or I could just wait until they finish it on their own and buy a ticket, but I’m an impatient sort.

'Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor' Issue #5 Delivers Fast-Paced Adventure And Death Cults

While we won’t likely see new episodes of Doctor Who on TV until much later this year, Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth incarnation of the venerable Time Lord shows no signs of slowing down on the pages of Titan Comic’s Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor. In fact, the latest issue, #5 in the continuing run, delivers the fastest paced adventure we’ve see yet from this title.

'The Lazarus Effect' Movie Review: This Resurrection Horror Should Have Stayed Dead

The Lazarus Effect is simultaneously the exact movie you expect and not what you envisioned at all. The film you see on screen is a generic, predictable one. Full of the usual horror tropes and clich├ęs, it’s more concerned with quick jump scares than building lasting tension, and you see every new development coming from a mile away. That’s not to say it’s without certain charms, but only the most hardcore genre fans need to search this one out. From the trailers and the fact that this comes from Blumhouse Productions, most known for low-budget fare that turns a tidy profit, you get more or less what you anticipate.
