Do you remember The Transporter? Yep the action movie franchise starring Jason Statham. Well Luc Besson’s EuropaCorps wants to reboot the franchise with a new actor. They’re planning a prequel that will star Ed Skrein (an actor from the TV series “Game of Thrones”) in the lead role as Frank Martin aka the Transporter. Besides Ed Skrein , the cast also includes Loan Chabanol, Radivoje Bukvic, Gabriella Wright, and Anatole Taubman. Here’s the plot synopsis:
Plot: “The fast-paced action movie is again set in the criminal underworld in France, where Frank Martin (Skrein) is known as The Transporter, because he is the best driver and mercenary money can buy. In this installment, he meets Anna (Chabanol) and they attempt to take down a group of ruthless Russian human traffickers who also have kidnapped Frank’s father.”
Do you think Ed Skrein is fit enough to take over the role of Frank Martin? Will you miss Jason Statham?
The release date of The Transporter Legacy is set to March 6, 2015. :)

Let’s watch the official trailer of Reclaim, the upcoming thriller drama movie directed by Alan White and starring Ryan Phillippe, Rachelle Lefevre, John Cusack, Briana Roy, Veronica Faye Foo, Luis Guzman, and Jacki Weaver:
More than a vacation. more than a coincidence. More than a crime. More than they ever imagined!
Plot: “After their newly adopted daughter goes missing in a small town, Steven (Ryan Phillippe) and Shannon (Rachelle Lefevre) will stop at nothing to uncover the truth behind her disappearance and the dangerous secret behind the adoption agency they trusted. Risking their own lives, they will discover just what being a parent means and how far they will go to get their child back.”
Actor John Cusack makes for a convincing villain (love his black cap!). But Ryan Phillippe and and Rachelle Lefevre don’t really look like a couple ready for adoption… Anyway, willing to give the film a try.
The release date of Reclaim is set to September 19, 2014. :)
New pictures from the set of Ted 2, the upcoming sequel to Seth MacFarlane’s Ted, have surfaced online, take a look below:

Ted does look a bit fatter than in the first film, doesn’t he?
So far the cast includes Mark Wahlberg, Amanda Seyfried, Seth MacFarlane (he’s once again lending his voice to Ted), and Jessica Barth.
The movie Ted 2 will open in theaters on June 26, 2015. :)

Plot: “A soldier (Dan Stevens) introduces himself to the Peterson family, claiming to be a friend of their son who died in action. After the young man is welcomed into their home, a series of accidental deaths seem to be connected to his presence.”
This new trailer of The Guest may give away much of the story but I don’t care: I am quite impatient to see the film!
The release date of The Guest is set to September 17, 2014. :)
Check out the latest trailer of The Book of Life, the upcoming fantasy animated movie written and directed by Jorge R. Gutierrez:
THE BOOK OF LIFE
Plot: “Manolo (Diego Luna), a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family and following his heart, embarks on an adventure that spans three fantastical worlds where he must face his greatest fears.”
I see they tried to build an interesting world, but the characters, aside from Maria (Zoe Saldana), are kind of dumb…
