Taken 2 slated for Release October 2012

You would think that after the first film, no one would be dumb enough to mess with him, but no. Let’s do it all over again!

After the sleeper hit, Taken, starring Liam Neeson, Maggie Grace and Famke Janssen, that took home an estimated gross of $226K, with a budget of $26K, written and produced by Luc Besson, and directed by Pierre Morel (District 13 From Paris with Love), comes Taken 2.

First, let me say that I love French films. I can’t seem to help myself from always talking (or blogging) about them, especially the action ones. Anything from EuropaCorp, I just have to go out and watch on theater, and get the DVD too.

The Taxi and Transporter series, Ong-Bak, District 13 series, From Paris with Love, Colombiana, Kiss of the Dragon, Crimson Rivers, Hitman, Unleashed, Tell No One are just some of the films that I loved from this film company. Any film associated with Luc Besson I just have to go out and see too. Even Michele Vaillant (which I never seem to disassociate from Inital D with Jay Chou).

What’s not to be excited about Taken 2, aside from the fact that we’ve seen the first film, it’s directed by Olivier Megaton, who directed ExitThe Red Siren, and Transporter 3, and served as second unit director for Hitman.

After that onslaught of names, film titles and links, here is the trailer for Taken 2, released June 21. The film is slated for release October this year.


Rock of Ages in Manila with MiG Ayesa – June 15-July 8, 2012

Movies, Music, Theater By June 10, 2012 Tags: , , , , , , No Comments

I don’t know what cave I have been hiding in the past months but only until someone posted a trailer of Rock of Ages film in my network did I actually find out that the musical is in the Philippines, with none other than MiG Ayesa in the lead.

Rock of Ages is a rock/jukebox musical, with a book by Chris D’Arienzo, built around classic rock hits from the 1980s, especially from the famous glam metal bands of the decade. The musical features songs from StyxJourney,Bon JoviPat BenatarTwisted SisterSteve PerryPoison and Europe, among other well-known rock bands.[1]

The show is noted for being more lighthearted and comedic than other shows on Broadway. During performance, the performers frequently break the “fourth wall”, directly addressing the audience and seemingly forgetting (or perhaps reminding the audience) that they are actors in a musical.

Step Up 4 Revolution coming to Theaters July 2012

Movies By May 25, 2012 Tags: , , , , , No Comments

I don’t know about dance movies but they just excite me so and I am even more excited with this most recent film in the Step Up franchise. I swear I got goosebumps just watching the trailer.

“Step Up Revolution” movie hits theaters in North America July 27, followed by Australia on August 2 and France, the UK and other European markets on August 8-10. No word yet on when it’s showing in the Philippines.

Emily (Kathryn McCormick), daughter of a wealthy businessman, arrives in Miami with aspirations of becoming a professional dancer and soon falls in love with Sean (Ryan Guzman), a young man who leads a dance crew in elaborate, cutting-edge flash mobs. The crew, called the MOB, strives to win a contest for a major sponsorship opportunity, but soon Emily’s father threatens to develop the MOB’s historic neighborhood and displace thousands of people.

Directed by: Scott Speer
Cast: Kathryn McCormick, Ryan Guzman, Stephen Boss, Chadd Smith, Tommy Dewey, Cleopatra Coleman
produced by: John Chu

They may change cast each and every time but I am happy that my favorite character, Moose (Adam Sevani) has been there since the second film. I’m a little sad Claire (Alyson Stoner), isn’t this time around.

Who cares about the plot or the acting? We watch these movies for the dance, plain and simple. All that dancing…. Enough said.

I always go out of the theater feeling all hyped up, moved, if that’s a better term.
