Alain Mouissi (X-Men: Days of Future Past) stars in the new version as a martial artist who travels to Thailand to avenge the death of his brother at the hands of a bad guy (Dave Bautista, Guardians of the Galaxy). Van Damme will play a martial arts master and teacher. [Heat Vision]

 

By the Gun

By the Gun Clip: In a new clip from By the Gun, Harvel Keitel conducts a solemn Mafia ceremony involving ambitious criminal Ben Barnes.
