Kickboxer: Vengeance - trailer (film remake)

- 'Kickboxer: Vengeance' Trailer: Jean-Claude Van Damme Is Ready to Brawl (Exclusive)

... as the exclusive first trailer above indicates, he’s bringing along a serious Hollywood heavyweight with him.

The icon about whom we speak is none other than the “Muscles From Brussels,” Jean-Claude Van Damme, who’ll take on the teacher role in Kickboxer: Vengeance, a faithful re-do of his 1989 bruiser. As before, the story concerns a mixed martial artist named Kurt Sloane (stuntman-turned-actor Alain Moussi) who seeks revenge after his brother dies in a match in Thailand against bruising Muay Thai champion Tong Po, here played by Guardians of the Galaxy’s Dave Bautista with the same long-ponytailed hairstyle that the character boasted in the original. Haywire’s Gina Carano also factors into the proceedings, which promise to be a nostalgia-tinged throwback to JCVD’s heyday. (And at least according to this trailer, the star will be wearing his hat and sunglasses in every one of his punching-and-roundhouse-kicking scenes.)

Directed by John Stockwell (Blue Crush), Kickboxer: Vengeance probably won’t attract serious award-season attention like Creed did, but for those interested in no-nonsense beat-‘em-up action — much of it coming courtesy of the enduringly awesome Van Damme — the film seems primed to satisfy when it elbow drops its way into theaters on Sept. 2.


We've let this one get away for long enough. Remake of the cult 1989 Van Damme film.
Features Alain Moussi, Dave Bautista, Gina Carano, Georges St. Pierre, Cain Velasquez, Fabricio Werdum, with Jean-Clauda Van Damme as as Master Durand. Word is it will be dedicated to our friend on the screen: Darren Shahlavi, who sadly passed away after filming.

Trailer in the link above. Who's looking forward to going back to Thailand?

i'd rather get KICKED BOXED than watch this movie!

Real post: I hope it's good. Specifically, well done fight scenes. Hollywood seems to have forgotten how to shoot a fucking fight and hopefully they can do some fun stuff with the kickboxing gimmick
We've got chicken tonight. Strangest damn things. They're man made.

Fingers crossed. I'm disappointed by the look of the film. I thought they might at least have a better sense of filmic style. It's really wearing the cheap, direct to video HD look.
