  11. Text below is taken from https://action-flix.com/2019/12/20/extraction-point-martial-arts-maestro-franklin-correa-serves-up-fresh-images-from-his-newest-sci-fi-action-thriller-exclusive/ The movie, Extraction Point, has sci-fi and martial arts. Action filmmaker Franklin Correa has a new film, Extraction Point, in pre-production, with an expected release date in September 2020. "Official Synopsis: After being shot down by the US government, an alien that goes by the name of Nemon (voiced by Farid Jamal Khan) is held captive buy a maniacal scientist Dr.Silva (Joe Bei) to become a guinea pig of experiments. But with the help of his contact Terry (Tara London) who is Dr.Silva’s assistant, she breaks them free before anyting happens and without people to trust she turns to a young kid by the name of Ricky (Anthony Castro) whom she knows from coming to the lab tours every month. Not knowing what to do Ricky turns to his adopted brother Jason (Franklin Correa), an army veteran who does side jobs for his friend Lenny (Micheal Chase) a local loan sharking bookie for help on getting Nemon to his extraction point before the government agents led by Agent Monroe and Kelly (Valentin Montero, Bryan C. King) and their comrades catch up to them but also dealing with a Staten Island loan shark and bookie by the name of Gio Verde’ (Taino Escobar) along with his enforcer Lobo (Kendrick Grey) catch up to them trying to move in on Lenny’s territory. So now Jason must do whatever it takes to help Terry get Nemon to the extraction point by any means necessary." "As always, Correa is wearing all the hats on this production as he not only stars in it but he also wrote, edited, directed and produced it as well and is one of the hardest working guys in the industry today as he does it his way and his way alone. Correa is a true testament to perseverance and dedication to his craft. His fight sequences always bring a real sense of realism to the screen and fans know what they are in store for when they see his name on the screen."

    Miscellaneous Japanese Cinema Thread

    Nezura 1964 is an upcoming kaiju movie from 3Y Film, with Kadokawa Pictures involved in its development and production. In the 1960s, Daiei Motion Picture Company started making Nezura, a "movie about a swarm of rats, mutated to giant size by a new experimental food product, running amuck in Tokyo". But the rats used in filming didn't cooperate and there were problems with fleas, ticks, lice, and pesticides, so the movie was never completed. Kadokawa Shoten Publishing Co., Ltd., took over Daiei in 2002, and formed Kadokawa Pictures. Hiroto Yokokawa (co-writer and director of The Great Buddha Arrival) proposed a new movie, Nezura 1964, to Kadokawa, to be a "drama about the infamous unmade film" Nezura and all its problems. Hiroto Yokokawa will be the co-writer, producer and director. "Much of his team from The Great Buddha Arrival" will be involved in Nezura 1964. The cast will include Yukijiro Hotaru (the Gamera Trilogy), Masanori Kikuzawa, Kazuma Yoneyama, Himawari Ono (Gamera The Brave), Ippei Osako (Shin Godzilla), and Yoshiro Uchida (in the original Gamera). Nezura 1964 is set for a Japanese release this coming December. The official Japanese webpage for the movie is nezura1964.com. The info on Nezura 1964 is from an article, a SciFi Japan Exclusive, at http://www.scifijapan.com/articles/2019/12/31/nezura-1964-exclusive-first-look-at-concept-art-for-new-kaiju-movie/ Nezura 1964 promo at
  13. From the Youtube HK Cinema Channel, here's a trailer for the upcoming (2020) Chinese fantasy action movie, Huo Yun Xie Shen (aka The Beast). It looks like a sci-fi martial arts movie to me. Zhong Zhixing directs, and the cast includes Bruce Leung, Yuen Wah, and Yuen Qiu, all from Kung Fu Hustle. They are also in a sequel movie, The Beast 2. chinesemov.com labels The Beast as action, comedy, fantasy, martial arts. The trailer has no English subtitles, so I don't know the plot.

    East meets West: in the "Eastern Westerns" or "Western Easterns".

    From - https://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=26202 "Facets Video is planning to bring to 4K Blu-ray and Blu-ray Ed Warnick's film Manchurian Avenger (1985), starring Derek Abernathy, Bob Coulson, Bobby Kim, and Leila Lee Olsen. The two releases are expected to arrive on the market in Spring 2020. Synopsis: East meets the Old West in this rather innocuous combination of kung fu and cowboy movies. Kim, out to avenge his father's murder, returns to his old hometown that just happens to be the scene of the crime. This proves to be Kim's old stomping grounds in more ways than one, for shortly after his arrival he's up to his black belt in trouble."
