"When a spate of eerie murders erupts across Hong Kong, two troublemaking cops are assigned to the case. Young maverick WANG and grizzled vet HUANG, who is fed up with his reckless younger partner always landing them in hot water. Reaching a dead end after discovering all the victims were former boyfriends of aspiring starlet LIU, the detectives must play a deadly game. One of them must go undercover as Liu's lover to lure the killer out."
"I was able to attend the world premiere of "WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE" with JCVD last night. Pretty funny flick, JCVD was pure gold in this. You guys just wait, no one has ever seen him in this light.
JCVD really stole the show and just shines so much doing comedy. It's about these corporate office workers who go on a wilderness camping trip. Soon things start happening and the film turns into Lord of the Flies in a way with divisions amongst the group. I don't want to spoil the film but JCVD has 2nd billing and has tons of screen time. I can't believe how much I laughed during the film as JC is basically poking fun at himself most of the time."
Here is a second report from a user on the Van Damme fan website: (veindammage )
"He's in it quite a bit. It's only 90 minutes so he's there through the first act then goes away (I thought for good considering the circumstances of the scene) but he comes back maybe 2/3 through. Oh and he kind of saves the day and gets a big laugh doing what he does best, then by imitating himself. Sorry, not sure how much to give away haha. This isn't a cameo though, he definitely has some screen time.
JCVD is very funny in it in a ridiculous, pumped up version of himself kind of way."
" Regarding Welcome To The Jungle, I'm not kidding when I say Van Damme has reached a whole new level of acting. Pure comedic genius, as we've never seen him before. The movie deserves to be in a wide release. It's better than many of the comedies that have been coming out. JCVD has so many funny lines, I promise you guys, you won't believe it."
Here is a summary of the plot,
"Chris (Adam Brody) is a workplace weakling who doesn't have the balls to stand up to the slick office bully, Phil (Rob Huebel), who steals all his ideas, and he has yet to muster the courage to ask out cute HR manager, Lisa (Megan Boone). Even Chris' only friend, Jared (Eric Edelstein), a sarcastic slacker IT guy who secretly monitors everyone's porn intake, slams Chris for being a pussy. But when a team-building "wilderness seminar" goes horribly wrong, and unhinged ex-marine teambuilding coach Storm Rothchild (Jean-Claude Van Damme) gets mauled by a cougar - Chris and his co-workers find themselves stranded on a deserted tropical island with no rescue in sight... and someone's going to have to step up and take charge. Phil quickly proclaims himself "God" of the island - but Chris has Boy Scout skills and would be far better suited to lead the group if he could overcome his fear - of everything. Can Chris finally man-up to Phil, release his inner-beast, get them rescued and win the girl? Or will Phil triumph, as usual, while Chris cowers like a bitch-boy?"
Welcome to the Jungle was released on April 27th at the Newport Beach International Film Festival.
Rocky is coming to Broadway
Here are Sylvester Stallone's comments, “I couldn’t be more proud or more excited about this production and how my original story of Rocky Balboa has been brought to spectacular life onstage.”
“The story of Rocky was very much like my life at the time - starting out with nothing, having to fight for roles and recognition,” the 66-year-old Stallone said. “So I put those feelings into the body of a boxer and I had no idea there were so many millions of people that felt the same way.
And finally, Terry Crews gave us a small update on Wesley Snipes joining The Expendables 3 cast. "I know that [producers are] talking [with Wesley], and I know it looks really good right now...So I'm really happy that he...it looks like he's able to do it. Believe me, I'm making the pitch, cause I would love it."
