Although 'Taken 2' didn't live up to the glorious, trashy heights of the first film, its absurd box office meant that a 'Taken 3' was inevitable. Now, the gears are officially in motion. A director is attached, Liam Neeson is returning and Oscar-winner Forest Whitaker is reportedly being sought for a mysterious role.

It's always interesting to see what the year's crop of Oscar hopefuls follow-up their buzzworthy performances with. For Forest Whitaker, it's the horror-thriller 'Repentance' with 'Captain America 2' star Anthony Mackie, and you can get a taste of the crazy to come with the first trailer.

Released in 1988, 'Bloodsport' gave Jean-Claude Van Damme one of his first starring roles and introduced the world to his insane action skills. The film follows Frank Dux (based on the real-life American martial artist of the same name), who goes to Hong Kong to participate in the Kumite -- an illegal underground martial arts tournament in which competitors use freestyle techniques and are eliminated after a single round.
It's been 25 years since the film was released, so join us as we look back at the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.

'Lee Daniels' The Butler' Review

'Lee Daniels' The Butler' is an eight-course meal of movies served all at once. The entree is a searing racial drama, haunting in its depiction of America's stained history. The other seven courses, delivered without grace, flatten the taste. Fine ingredients — a rousing ensemble and sporadically sharp script — can't make up for a cook's sloppy work. 'The Butler' is a mishmash of prestige qualifiers, unfit to dish out, but plated nonetheless.

From the opening frames of the trailer for 'The Butler,' it's as if you can hear everyone involved saying one word. That word? Oscar. Academy award-nominated director Lee Daniels leads Oscar winning actor Forest Whitaker in this tour of race relations in America as told through the perspective of a White House butler.
