Awesome Action

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.

Journey to the West 2 (Trailer)

Journey to the West 2 (Trailer)

The Buddhist monk Tang Sanzang continues his demon-slaying with frenemies Water Buffalo, Pig Demon and Monkey King in tow. Journey to the West: The Demons Strike Back is the sequel to writer and director Stephen Chow’s 2013 hit.

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

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

Brilliant Moments of Action

Marauders (Trailer)

Bruce Willis plays a high-powered banker, and Christopher Meloni, Dave Bautista, and Adrian Grenier are FBI agents in this drama about a series of deadly bank robberies which turn out to actually be a cover for something much, much bigger.

Paintball Warfare 2.0

Paintball Warfare 2.0

Devin Supertramp and his posse make a big mess of things as they splatter the hell out of each other in an epic paintball battle on a literally cool set piece made almost entirely from ice. Behind-the-scenes video here.

Jason Bourne (Trailer)

Jason Bourne (Trailer)

Matt Damon reprises his role as the brainwashed super spy. We’re not sure what his deal is this time, but Damon has said he wouldn’t star in another Bourne flick if it didn’t move the character forward. Which is why they should have called this David Webb.

Ice Cross Downhill POV

Ice Cross Downhill POV

First-person footage of an insane sport called Ice Cross – in which athletes perform stunts and race through a luge-like downhill course wearing ice skates. This footage is from this past winter’s Ice Cross Downhill World Championship in Quebec City, Canada.

Sniper Elite 4 (Gameplay)

Ski Man

Ski Man

From the “because it could be done” file: Jean Yves Blondeau’s rather silly looking ski suit allows him to ski using not just his feet, but also with his hands, chest or back. While it looks insane at times, it’s also a great way to make your falls look intentional.
