Yesterday was full of images, but today I’ve got 3 brand new trailers to show you guys. Keeping with the Donnie Yen theme, let’s start off with the teaser trailer for the Iceman Cometh.
It looks like this film will be epic in every sense of the word. The fights look well done and intense, while the effects don’t look all that bad. Yes, the 3D is still gimmicky, but I can live with that. It’s easy to see why it’s taking so long to get everything completed, though I don’t know how this film will really be after it’s split in two. The Iceman looks like it’s going to deliver on all fronts, and I can’t wait to see more.
Next up is the film that has been getting mixed reception from audiences, Badges of Fury.
Personally, I’m not really feeling this film anymore. The first trailer was awkward, but this takes it to a whole new level. It’s clearly a comedy before anything else, and not a well done one at that. While I’ll still check it out, I’d rather see Jet take more dramatic roles than do something like this. It’s a shame since the premise sounded so cool, but it would take a lot to win me back over for this one.
Lastly, let’s end the post with a trailer for Dustin Nguyen’s Once Upon a Time in Vietnam courtesy of Beyond Hollywood:
Once Upon a Time in Vietnam is one of those movies that comes out of nowhere and demands attention. It’s got a solid story, interesting characters, and action that will please anyone. It will be curious to see how people respond to this film, but it may help put Vietnam on the map.
All 3 movies are very different and will garner different reactions. What did you guys think? Which one are you most excited for?
