Van Damme Returns in Full Trailer For KICKBOXER: VENGEANCE
The original Kickboxer is one of Jean-Claude Van Damme's most iconic action movies, and with contemporaries like Stallone and Schwarzenegger revisiting the parts that made them household names in the 80s, it makes sense Van Damme would want in on that action. So he's starring in the remake, Kickboxer: Vengeance, but he's not reprising the same role he played the first time around. This time, he'll play a revamped version of the first film's Master Chow, who trains "Kurt Sloan (Alain Moussi), a talented martial artist who travels to Thailand where he must learn the secrets of the kickboxer to avenge his brother's death at the hands of Tong Po (Dave Bautista)."
Yahoo Movies has released the full trailer for the movie, and if you know anything about the original or have even heard of this remake at all, it probably looks exactly like you'd expect.
Kickboxer: Vengeance hits theaters on August 19th, and Van Damme will return for a sequel, Kickboxer: Retaliation.
