Biography by

Extraction Trailer

Leonard Turner has dedicated his life to the CIA. He might be partially retired but he's still a valuable asset to the organisation. When he's taken hostage by a terrorist group, Turner is made to release a statement documenting the groups ransom demands. If their demands are not met, all the missile siloes around the world will be pointed at The United States.

Enter Leonard's son Harry. Harry too is a CIA operative but he's a desk worker who's yet to be cleared for field duty. When he learns of his father's kidnapping, Harry takes matters into his own hands. Now working behind the backs of colleges - not to mention a group of highly skilled international terrorists - Harry takes on the mission alone. Using his analytical knowhow, Harry believes he's one step ahead than his former work mates.

Hot on Harry's trail is Agent Victoria Phair, his ex-girlfriend who's an accomplished field agent with martial arts skills and far more tactical training than Harry. All that's left to do is save Leonard and the world from a disaster unlike anything the world has ever seen.

Heist Trailer

The Pope is the formidable nickname given to Frank Silva; a businessman who runs a multi-million dollar empire of gambling with his glamorous dockside casino. Luke Vaughn works as a card dealer at Pope's casino, and in a desperate bid to raise 300,000 dollars to pay for his sick daughter's medical treatment, he turns to his boss for help. Predictably, Pope is less than pleased about being asked for money and throws Vaughn out, but little does he know that there's another worker who'll stop at nothing to get a share of the riches. Cox convinces Vaughn to rob the place and they make off with 3 million dollars after a messy shoot-out. However, their plans go slightly wrong at the getaway stage, forcing them to take over a passing bus and holding the passengers hostage. Now, as well as The Pope's savage cohorts on their tail including the bloodthirsty Dog, they have a SWAT team led by no-nonsense female Officer Bajos after them and escape seems futile.

Soon, however, he is approached by a scientist who promises not only to cure him and save his life, but also give him powers beyond humanity. He agrees to undergo their experiments, but it isn't long before he realises that things may have just gone from bad to worse for him. He ends up badly disfigured and extremely unstable, dubbing his new self Deadpool and finds comfort only in his whimsical musings and inappropriate humour. When this fails to satisfy him in the long term, he decides to use his newfound powers to get back at the man who subjected him to those horrific experiments, while enjoying a few killing sprees along the way. Unfortunately, he's not the only deadly supernatural being on this planet, and he's about to discover some real enemies along the way.

Now a mercenary with a feverish taste for blood, Wilson becomes the anti-hero Deadpool and takes his fascination with pain to the lengths of revenge, determined to get back at the person who mutilated him and ruined his life. Whimsical musings aside, Deadpool is lethal and will stop at nothing to punish his tormentors.

Chakrams At The Ready! Who Should Play Xena In The Rumoured TV Re-Boot?

Lucy Lawless Gina Carano Charlize Theron Zooey Deschanel Ronda Rousey Ruby Rose Gemma Arterton Zoe Saldana Laverne Cox

So, rumours are circulating that a modern reboot of the 90s cult show 'Xena: Warrior Princess' is set to hit screens in the near future. It would be great to see Lucy Lawless back in that badass leather corset but, chances are, if it does ever return, it's likely to have a new wearer. But who should it be?

Lucy Lawless

In a world where feminism has become re-invigorated and strong female role models are being taken seriously in movies and on the small screen, it seems only right that 'Xena: Warrior Princess' be brought back as part of this phenomenon. According to The Hollywood Reporter, original executive producers Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi are involved in her resurrection (literally) with the series suggested to arrive in 2016 and take on a kind of Katniss Everdeen in 'The Hunger Games' angle. Original star Lucy Lawless is keen to crush our dreams, though, telling Twitter, 'Sorry, friends! news of a #Xena reboot is just a rumor. I'd love it to happen one day but it's still in the wishful thinking stage', but it still got us thinking about who we'd like to see in the role if it ever did come back.

Wonder Woman Movie: Who Do You Want For The Leotard And Lasso?

Wonder Woman Jaimie Alexander Gina Carano Amber Heard Alice Eve Katy Perry Rosario Dawson Jennifer Lawrence Rachel McAdams Juno Temple Rachel Bilson Hayden Panettiere Megan Fox Allison Williams Alexandra Daddario

Following Christopher Nolan's 'Dark Knight' trilogy and the recent Superman epic 'Man Of Steel', there seems to be one obvious direction to go in next for DC Comics with their film franchises: a Wonder Woman movie, of course. The Amazonian knockout was first portrayed successfully by Lynda Carter in the TV series between 1975 and 1979, and it hasn't yet been put to cinema neither as a solo project for the character nor as a Justice League of America set-up. There have been all sorts of rumours flying about recently with Jaimie Alexander talking a lot about the supposed upcoming Wonder Woman movie and we've got pretty excited discussing who might be considered for the role.

So, who do we think would do the Wonder Woman costume 'justice'?

Jaimie AlexanderJaimie Alexander: The 'Thor' actress has set tongues wagging as she gushed about the character in an interview with Forbes. 'I would love for DC to put Wonder Woman in one of their upcoming flicks, either in her own movie or Batman vs. Superman, or just something even to introduce her', she said. Batman vs. Superman, hmm? Does she know something we don't? On the suggestion that she could be the one to play her, she insisted, 'I'm appreciative to the people who ask my opinion of the character, and that's been pretty amazing.' Jaimie would be perfect for the role given her portrayal of Asgardian strong-woman Sif in the 'Thor' movies, and she even bears an interesting resemblance to Lucy Lawless as 90s TV hero Xena, Warrior Princess.

Nerds, pop culture feminist groups and movie buffs have been hankering for the heroine, who fights for justice, love, peace, and sexual equality, to get her shot at the big screen for a while now, but it’s the recent fan-made movie trailer that has added steam to the locomotive.
