This might not be a comeback movie role we expected but man- it’s equally as fun. Never expected to say this but Chuck Norris is officially a part of Crime Boss: Rockay City video game, first-person shooter/ heist with plethora of our favorites 80s and 90s A- listers.Czech developer Ingame Studios decided to go all the way with 90s style (which I fully support) for their debut game and they cast accordingly. In fact it’s such a cast that it almost rivals the Expendables 2 (also featuring Chuck) and that just might be the greatest ensemble in an Action Movie ever.

The game follows Travis Baker (Michael Madsen) a man with his sights set on becoming the new King of Rockay City, one crime at a time. Then we have Michael Rooker as Touchdown, Kim Basinger as Casey, Danny Trejo as The Dragon, Danny Glover as Glove and of course Chuck Norris as- you guessed it Sheriff Norris. Not need to change the winning formula.

Now, there’s no way for me to know how good the gameplay will be (we’ll have to wait ’till March for that) but I have to give the shot-out for nailing the esthetics and this pitch perfect casting. And if things weren’t 90’s enough they even threw in Vanilla Ice as a crime boss Hielo! He’s finally gonna earn that street reputation that he lacked the first go around.

WORD TO YOUR MOTHER!

Now without further ado, here’s the announce trailer:

Crime Boss: Rockay City will be launching on Epic Games March 28th, 2023 and coming soon to PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.

SHERIFF NORRIS IN PURSUIT!

We already talked to some length of our love of Kazahstani cinema.  From the long lost action of Blizhniy Boy with Kickboxer/ MMA fighter Cung Le and the veterans like David Caradine, Carry- Hiroyuki Tagawa and Garry Busey to Beyond the Game with everyone from Olivier Grunner and Mark Dacascos to Eric Roberts and Michael Madsen.

Well, now we finally have a new trailer (and the release date) for the long gestating  Diamond Cartel (formerly  know as  The Whole World at Our Feet). Featuring (as always) all- star cast of Armand Assante , Michael Madsen, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Tommy “Tiny” Lister, Don “Dragon” Willson, Olivier Gruner, final performance of acting legend Peter O’Toole and my personal favorite old school Kung Fu ass-kicker Bolo Yeung!

Enjoy the trailer and we’ll talk about the movie after it comes out March 31.

Now, I’m a big fan of the Kazahstani cinema, not ’cause I think directors are overly talented but for the sheer fact that they approach film-making like the kid collecting the stickers- they try really hard to collect them all.

And then you have things like Olivier Gruner (Nemesis, Alien Interceptor), Mark Dacascos (Crying Freeman, Brotherhood of the Wolf, Agents of SHIELD), Martin Kove (Karate Kid, Rambo 2, Assault on Devil’s Island), Cary Tagawa (Mortal Kombat, The Man in the High Castle), Eric Roberts (Runaway Train, Best of the Best, Raptor), Billy Zane (Titanic, Phantom), Michael Jai White (Spawn, Black Dinamite), Bai Ling (Age of Hobbits,The Crow, Crank 2), Kevin Sorbo (Hercules), Kristina Loken (Terminator 3), Armand Assante (The Odyssey, Prophecy) and Danny Trejo (Machete) all working on the same freakin’ movie!

And it’s about manhunt + reality TV mix with a fare share MMA action to boot- who can say no to that?

 

Now that you’ve enjoyed the trailer, prepare for more Kazahstani goodness ’cause we are expecting another offering from them this year and that’s The Whole World at Our Feet with unlikely mix of Armand Assante, Peter O’Tool and Bolo Yeung!  Hope they never stop doing what they do.
