Kurtis here. Just wanted to say everyone have a happy Fourth of July. Hope everyone is enjoying themselves at a barbecue or just hanging out. If you’re not American and do not celebrate today’s holiday, then I’m sorry this may leave you out.
Since today is such an American holiday, I think this is the best way to celebrate. It’s been well over ten years since his last action movie, but Jean-Claude Van Damme is back! I know that you’re thinking “How is this the best way to celebrate July 4th?”. The answer is simple. He played Guile in the Street Fighter movie. That’s all I need.
JCVD as Guile giving it to Bison the foot fist way.
Anyway, his new film Assassination Games will be coming out this month in a limited US release. It’s been a little while since his last film JCVD, which was a bit more personal to Van Damme. I liked the film since it was a huge change for him. This time around, Van Damme plays a veteran assassin whose target is also wanted for revenge by another assasin played by Scott Adkins (Bourne Ultimatum, Wolverine). The trailer doesn’t really help it, but if I’m able to see it, I’ll definitely go. You can see Assassination Games at the end of this month on July 29 in select theaters. Watch the trailer below.
