The Raid Cast Join Star Wars?

Well now you’ve got my attention; yes, that isn’t a typo but according to Twitch “a key trio of performers from Gareth Evans’ The Raid and The Raid 2 – leading man Iko Uwais, Mad Dog / Prakoso actor Yayan Ruhian and The Raid 2 finale fighter Cecep Arif Rahman, credited simply as The Assassin – will all appear in JJ Abrams’ upcoming Star Wars: Episode 7 – The Force Awakens”.

There’s no further news as yet but having these great martial arts stars coming to a galaxy far, far away is incredibly exciting. They’ll probably be aliens or under heavy make-up but if we could get a villain as cool as Darth Maul (who doesn’t get killed too early again) then this could be worth talking about.

Once again this hasn’t been confirmed as yet but by God, I hope it’s true.

Death Wish 2: Do You Believe in Jesus?

Death Wish 2 is easily the most brutal in the series and that rape scene was always horrific to watch; I’ll be honest and say I usually fast forward that part. This scene however, has some dark humour as Paul Kersey (Char...
