A titan from the game Destiny stumbles onto its most horrific adversary yet – cute, cuddly, and deadly Care Bears. Freaking Rad’s video offers up cool weapons, comedy, cosplay, action, and VFX. (Thanks Grey!)

Mountain Bearking

Mountain Bearking

Riding your bike on a downhill mountain path is dangerous enough all on its own – hence the helmets and pads these guys are wearing. But this ride down a course in Slovakia provided an added source of peril – a bear. Thankfully, the killer animal gave up the chase rather quickly.

The Dark Tower (Trailer)

The Dark Tower (Trailer)

Who knows if it’ll translate to the big screen, but we’re excited to see Idris Elba as The Last Gunslinger, and Matthew McConaughey as the Man in Black in this adaptation of Stephen King’s classic series of science fiction novels. Oh please, oh please let this be good.

There’s No Such Thing as Ghosts

There’s No Such Thing as Ghosts

The guys from Corridor have a little fun with shadowplay in this clip about a couple of graffiti artists who get more than they bargain for when they try to tag the wrong building. TL;DW: kids, don’t use spray paint.

American Assassin (Trailer)

American Assassin (Trailer)

Based on Vince Flynn’s secret agent novels about Mitch Rapp, who becomes a deadly secret agent to compensate for the fact that his name befits a stand-up comedian. Just kidding. Loved one dies, wants revenge, trains with Batman, walks away from explosions.

NERF John Wick

NERF John Wick

Corridor pokes fun at the action and gunplay from the John Wick saga, replacing his Heckler & Kochs and Glocks with NERF blasters, and bullets with foam darts. It’s a little slow at the start, but once the action and stunts gets going, it’s good fun.

Atomic Blonde (Red Band Trailer)

Atomic Blonde (Red Band Trailer)

(PG-13) Charlize Theron kicks large quantities of ass in this action flick about a killer MI6 agent who must take on a city filled with baddies. We’re excited to see stunt coordinator and director David Leitch behind the lens – he co-directed John Wick and is helming Deadpool 2.

Leningrad: Kolschik

Leningrad: Kolschik

(PG-13: Gore) Since we don’t speak Russian, we don’t understand what the song is about, but the sheer insanity of the events that play out make this one of the wildest music videos we’ve seen. The clip was directed by Ilya Naishuller (Hardcore Henry and The Stampede)

Rollerblading Mountain Bike Ramps

Rollerblading Mountain Bike Ramps

It takes a minute to get to the action in this clip of rollerblader Grigoriy Usenko tearing up some MTB slopestyle ramps in the woods outside of Krasnodar, Russia. But you’ll want to watch those first 60 seconds too, packed with cool motion time-lapse footage of the nearby city.

Collide (Trailer)

Collide (Trailer)

Nicholas Hoult, Felicity Jones, Anthony Hopkins, and Ben Kingsley star in this action/romance about a man who gets involved with a group of drug dealers as their driver, and finds himself at odds with his new employers. Its director has little under his belt, but it’s got an A+ cast.

2D Parkour Run

2D Parkour Run

By capturing overhead shots with a drone, this amazing video provides a unique perspective compared to typical parkour and freerunning clips, transforming its acrobat, Ilko “Ill” Iliev into a the player in a top-down video game. It gets totally insane when the rappelling kicks in.

Frontier (Trailer)

Frontier (Trailer)

Jason Momoa plays Declan Harp, a half-Irish, half-Native American, all-Badass hellbent on taking down the fur trade. We’re pretty sure Khal Drogo would have taken down the bear in The Revenant without flinching. Series premieres 1/20/17 on Netflix.

John Wick: Chapter 2 (Trailer)

John Wick: Chapter 2 (Trailer)

“I’m not that guy anymore.” “You’re always that guy.” First they killed his dog. Now they uh, just want to take over the world. John Wick comes out of retirement again because of a more stereotypical premise, but hopefully more smart action as well.

The Fate of the Furious (Trailer)

The Fate of the Furious (Trailer)

Charlize Theron and Kurt Russell join the Fast and Furious and financially fantastic franchise for its latest installment. Gang leader Dom Toretto appears to turn his back on his team, probably because the Winter Soldier killed his mom Martha.

Literal Bohemian Rhapsody

Literal Bohemian Rhapsody

“I see a little silhouetto of a man. Scaramouche. Scaramouche.” We never really knew what the lyrics to Queen’s rock opera classic really meant, but the guys at Corridor decided to interpret them as the narration and dialogue for a dark crime drama.

Spectral (Trailer)

Spectral (Trailer)

It reads more like a video game plot than a feature film, but we’re still gonna watch this Netflix original film about a mysterious and nearly invisible force that’s been killing civilians in a wartorn city, and the special ops and scientific operation to stop them. Drops 12/9/16.

BMW: The Escape

BMW: The Escape

Neill Blomkamp directed this action-packed adventure for BMW Films, starring Jon Bernthal as a mercenary, and Clive Owen as a skilled driver who must help a mysterious girl (Dakota Fanning) escape from a genetic lab. Naturally, their ride is the shiny new 2017 BMW 540i.

John Wick: Chapter 2 (Teaser)

John Wick: Chapter 2 (Teaser)

The Magnificent Seven (Trailer)

The Magnificent Seven (Trailer)

“I seek righteousness, but I’ll take revenge.” It’s no Kurosawa, but it could end summer with a bang. Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, Peter Sarsgaard and other talented actors keep getting their checks in this remake of a remake. Drops 9/23/16.

Brilliant Moments of Action
