Loved him in Banlieue 13.  His moves are pretty insane. :rule

He makes it look so easy. Gravity? What is this gravity you speak of?

OMG, I've just found the first official preview of Banlieu 13 Ultimatum! It's a making of featurette from the first day of shooting and it can be seen here:

http://www.youtube.com/v/SZ49FKfWnDE&hl=en&fs=1

Looks good! And I finally have proof that Cyril's in it after all (it's not listed on his IMDB page). We can also see what some of the plot is going to be - apparently the government did not demolish the wall after all, just like Leito feared, so now he's blowing it up on his own (presumably because Damien is on the other side  :happydance

 I know, no matter how many times I see his demos I can't help being amazed that the stuff he does is at all possible. Which clip did you mean to link? (the link is currently for that making of B13 Ultimatum featurette)

Oh yeah, it's a mixture of footage from "Speed Air Man" and "Et Vous". My personal favourite is http://www.youtube.com/v/x98jCBnWO8w&hl=en&fs=1 - awesome edit and I love the song used too  :rule .

Ooh, I meant to post it here and I forgot - in what is probably the most awesome way to promote a film I've ever seen there are short featurettes about a particular day of filming posted on the official site for Banlieu 13 Ultimatum (http://www.b13ultimatum-lefilm.com/). There are 8 episodes so far, and a couple of picture posts. Episode 6 (http://blog.b13ultimatum-lefilm.com/#/episode-6) is especially interesting as it shows the behind the scenes on filming a parkour chase scene that will hopefully live up to the legendary sequence from the first film. They got David to be topless for it again, so that's a very good start as far as I'm concerned  :evillol .

And while poking around YouTube I've found a brilliant promo for Banlieu 13 - if you haven't seen the film yet and have the slightest bit of interest in the action genre, you'll sure want to check B13 out after seeing this short preview of the kind of stunts it contains - http://www.youtube.com/v/ljBOO8zHbek&hl=en&fs=1.

Cool pics!  The trailer looks nice too.  Too bad I can't understand what they're talking about... Anyway, I am really looking forward to the movie.

So am I! I've already booked train tickets to Paris for 21.02. because I'm not risking having to wait a year or two before the film is released outside of France.

I don't understand much of what is being said either, but considering the title is "Ultimatum", and the official looking guys at the beginning mention 5 missiles, I'm assuming the government has given the denizens of B13 some sort of ultimatum. No idea what the conditions are, but I presume the fact Molko's gang blew up the police station (that lovely explosion towards the end) has something to do with it. In any case, it's not like I'll be watching the film for the plot   :)

For those of us who are, well, French-challenged (I'm learning, though!), the Banlieue 13 Ultimatum filming diary featurettes have been thoughtfully supplied with English subtitles.

http://blog.b13ultimatum-lefilm.com/index.php/

How awesome is that?! This is clearly the best promoted film ever  :rule  I hope it also means the international release dates have been set.

Subtitles!  How cool is that!  Thank you for the info, Czeri!   :hugs

Just checked at the imdb, but so far the only release date listed is the one for France.

Yeah, too bad about the release dates, but maybe they'll appear soon, what with the massive update the official page just got today. There are so many goodies! Pictures, and wallpapers, and posters...

AlloCiné has five clips from Banlieue 13 Ultimatum! I absolutely adore this one: http://www.allocine.fr/video/player_gen_cmedia=18863122.html. It's the scene with the fist bump from my avatar - turns out Leito and Damien have squeezed together into an air duct and are trying to come up with a plan of what to do next. Which prompts Leito to complain that he doesn't like it when Damien thinks too much  :evillol

AlloCiné has several interviews and behind the scenes clips from Banlieue 13 Ultimatum including one devoted to David: http://www.allocine.fr/video/player_gen_cmedia=18864106.html. It never fails to amaze me how soft-spoken and adorable he is   :hugs

Thanks for the update! Looks pretty interesting!
I wonder if we will be able to watch it in Germany, too - apart from the EFM screening.

I'm obsessively checking the IMDB in the hope of international release dates finally appearing. I'm desperate to know why all the French people in the audience were laughing each time Damien and Leito spoke to each other  :lolmao

The international release dates for Banlieue 13 Ultimatum have started trickling in: it's being shown in Belgium since yesterday, will be released in South Korea on 16th April and in the UK on 12th June. I really hope I'll have a chance to watch a subtitled rather than dubbed version here in the UK :sigh:

In other news, Cyril Raffaelli's (David's friend's and co-star's in the B13 series) website has been recently updated with a bunch of photos, including a few from behind the scenes of the B13 films:







The interesting thing is that Dany Verissimo, who played Leito's sister, is a porn star and yet she looks so much classier and more adorable than, for example, a lot of the actresses and models who worked as extras on The Fast and the Furious series  :hhah

Banlieue 13 has made it on to the Most Over-the Top Action Movies of the Decade list http://thefilmstage.com/2009/04/17/the-most-over-the-top-action-movies-of-the-decade/. Which is quite funny considering that it was done with no CGI and 90% of the action was filmed without the use of any sort of lines or other safety measures.  :hhah :

Quote
Why It Is On This List: Taken may have fit the list, but Morel’s previous effort,  District B-13, has enough over-the-top action to satisfy all our needs. It is also it is a pretty good film on its own right.

Most Over-the-Top Scene: The jail scene qualifies, but the opening parkour chase is one of the best caught on film:

I've got several updates to post in one go:

First of all, there's a new interview with David up on YouTube, and this one's been thoughtfully provided with English subtitles:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWneBIz6ATg  :grin.  There's no word yet on whether David's agreed to do it or not.

Finally, the newest UK release date for Banlieue 13 Ultimatum has been set for the second of October. There are also the dates for Russian, Japanese and Icelandic premieres here: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1247640/releaseinfo.

There's finally news about a US release of Banlieue 13 Ultimatum - according to this website: http://www.collider.com/2009/09/24/six-shooter-film-series-aims-great-films-at-video-on-demand/

it will debut in January 2010 on VOD with a February theatrical release.


So it will hit theatres a full year after the French premiere, but I guess better late than ever  :b
