episode 6: AFD News: Brad Allan Passes Away, Captain America 4 Contracts, & Jackie Chan's Gorgeous Breakdown

Welcome to AFD News! Today's news includes the unfortunate passing of action film legend Brad Allan, Robert Rodriguez’s El Rey Network finds a new home, casting announcements for Witcher prequel series, live action My Hero Academia film finds its director, Alan Taylor talks losing interest in film after fan backlash over Thor 2 and Terminator Genisys, casting updates for Brad Pitt’s Bullet Train, Ryan Reynolds and potentially Extraction’s Chris Hemsworth make their way to Fortnite, Paper Tigers hits #7 on Netflix, Anthony Mackie closes a deal for the next Captain America film, and Hasbro releases an Aliens anniversary Pulse Blaster Nerf gun! In tribute to Brad Allan, we also do an in-depth discussion of the rematch duel from 1999’s Jackie Chan action romcom “Gorgeous.” The two martial arts legends go toe-to-toe in an almost 10-minute long sequence, showing great sportsmanship and even greater kicks. Of course, the whole endeavor is steeped in the classic physical comedy signature to Jackie Chan’s filmography. - Edited by Luigi Hernandez If you enjoyed this episode, you can support us at Subscribe and leave a review on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or the podcast app of your choice.
