Poster: JCVD's Karate
This was foolish of me, but I assumed that after JCVD, in which action legend Jean Claude Van Damme deconstructed his legend and even cried on camera, Van Damme might be done with the crappy action movies that have defined his career for much of his decade. But, of course, there is money to be made, so now we are faced with the poster for his next movie Karate and the ridiculous/awesome tagline: "Can the master of the ancient arts conquer the caged fighters of Las Vegas?
The poster comes thanks to Moviehole, where they also included a helpful link to the movie's official site. The site has a more official synopsis, but you probably don't need it to know what's going on here-- lots and lots of roundhouse kicks, basically. Sounds good if that's your thing, but for those of us who thought JCVD might be the start of something new, this feels like a bit of a regression. Head to Moviehole for the larger version of the poster you see below.
