Attention action movie (and particularly martial-arts action movie) fans: Put Triple Threat on your radar. The trailer for the film debuted at Comic-Con today, and at first glance it looks absolutely bonkers. It starts a Mount Rushmore of modern action heroes, including Tony Jaa from Ong-Bak, Iko Uwais from The Raid: Redemption, and Scott Adkins from Ninja II: Shadow of a Tear...
For a certain contingency of fans, the casting of Scott Adkins in Doctor Strange was just as exciting as Mads Mikkelsen or Tilda Swinton was for everyone else. The action star and martial arts pro’s role in the film remains a mystery, and while neither Adkins nor Marvel have confirmed exactly who (or what) he’s playing in Doctor Strange, the actor has opened up just a little bit about his experience and what we can expect from the Sorcerer Supreme’s solo outing.

Along with 'Twilight' star Kellan Lutz (in the title role), Liam McIntyre ('Spartacus'), Gaia Weiss ('Mary Queen of Scotts'), Scott Adkins ('The Bourne Ult
Coming at us riding a wave of surprisingly good reviews and even a small festival run, 'Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning' is the latest entry in the durable head-smashing franchise. This one once again features the blank stares of Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren, while also showcasing the newest action hero on the block, Scott Adkins. A red-band trailer for the film has just been unvei
If Scott Adkins isn't the biggest action star in the world in five years, we as a society have failed.
Over the last half decade, Adkins has become a dependable stunt performer (he was Weapon XI at the end of 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine') and supporting baddie (he fought Matt Damon in 'The Bourne Ultimatum' and played Jean-Claude Van Damme's toadie in 'The Expendables 2') in mainstream films. His wo
