Prošlo je malo više vremena od zadnjeg Flash News 3 bloka, ali eto nakon kraćega predaha vraćamo se sa novim Flash News najavama. Točnije, njih pet. Prvi u nizu najavljenih filmova je nezavisna ratna drama snimljena u ko-produkciji Kambodže i Amerike, zatim imamo tu i dva niskobudžetna borilačka filma, jedan je već izašao, drugi tek treba izaći. A tu su još i dva niskobudžetna horrorca od kojih je jedna Kanadsko/Talijanske ko-produkcije.
The Road to Freedom (2011)
Avanturistička ratna drama redatelja Brendana Moriartya snimljena u ko-produkciji Kambodže i Amerike. Radnja je bazirana na istinitim događajima iz 70-ih godina kada je novinar Sean Flynn nestao u Kambodži zajedno sa svojim kolegom Dana Stoneom. Radi se o niskobudžetnom filmu koji je koštao svega milijun $, te je snimljen na autentičnim lokacijama u Kambodži. Američka limitirana kino premijera koja će se održati u izabranim kinima je zakazana za 30 rujan 2011.
1970 was a year of great change in our world. Stories had to be told, but not all stories had an ending , which is why The Road To Freedom is a legend. Two young photo-journalists, Sean a worldly movie star and Dana, his small town partner set out for the story that will bring them fame and most importantly respect in the journalism field. Deep into the dark Cambodian jungle they journey to find the facts pulled from the horror stories of the atrocities committed by the Khmer Rouge. The darkness swallowed them, never to be seen again and the legend was born. Like ghosts, the two men have become stories told around the campfire, but the facts are still out there, deep in the darkest heart of man and only The Road To Freedom can carry the truth to the light.
Bare Knuckles (2010)
Niskobudžetna borilačka drama redatelja Erica Etebaria. Radnja ovog filma je klišej svih klišeja, pokupljenih iz svih mogućih poznatih i nepoznatih borilačkih filmova 80-ih i 90-ih. Neke od glavnih uloga igraju Martin Kove i Louis Mandylor, a film je premijerno prikazan prošle godine 1. lipnja 2010.
Cocktail waitress and single mother Samantha Rogers (Jeanette Roxborough) will do whatever it takes to provide for her daughter. And her one chance at security comes when down-and-out fight promoter Sonny Cool (Martin Kove, Karate Kid) introduces Sam to the dangerous and illegal world of high-stakes all-female bare knuckle fighting. She’ll face the fight of her life when she climbs into the ring where there is no room for weakness and no mercy for the loser. Inspired by a true story, this tale of guts and determination is a guaranteed knockout.
Sucker Punch (2008)
Da odmah razriješimo moguće dvojbe i sumnje, NE, ovaj film nema nikakve veze sa istoimenim filmom redatelja Zacka Snydera. Radi se o niskobudžetnom akcijskom borilačkom filmu redatelja i scenarista Malcolma Martina. Film inače datira još iz 2008. godine, i do sada je bio prikazan na nekim filmskim festivalima ali će tek ove godine, točnije 18. listopada 2011. imati svoju službenu Američki DVD premijeru.
Ray ‘Harley’ Davidson is a hustler. With flash clothes and a fast mouth, Harley lives life in the fast lane. With his passion for all things gambling, money runs like water through Harley’s hands and as quickly as he makes a killing he takes a beating, normally at the poker table. Nominally an illegal prize-fight manager, Harley hasn’t produced a live one in months, until Charles Buchinsky literally wanders into his life. Charles Buchinsky, street fighter extraordinaire. He’s from out of town looking for a fight and the chance to tie up a few loose ends. Keeps himself to himself, lets his fists do the talking and his word is his bond. Victor Maitland, top illegal fight promoter and porn baron. Hates losing and loves the prestige of managing the best hitter in town. Harley dreams of bringing Maitland down and after seeing Buchinsky at work, engineers a fragile partnership. The duo soon becomes a hot ticket, Charles knocking out all-comers, Harley cleaning up the side-bets. Old habits die hard, however, and Harley squanders the money as quickly as Charles earns it. This alerts Maitland, who offers to buy out Buchinsky’s contract. Harley refuses, and to make matters worse, Buchinsky defeats Maitland’s best fighter in a brutal contest. A second offer is rebuked, but after another disastrous gambling spree, Harley finds himself heavily in debt to a local loan shark. Seeing his opportunity, Maitland buys the debt and now Harley owes him. Unless Buchinsky agrees to fight a top professional, brought in from the North, using all his winnings as the stake, Harley will never walk again. It begs the question, just who is this enigmatic fighter and is he setting Maitland up for a sucker punch or will he simply walk away with his winnings?
