Debuting as the most-watched new show (or any show) on the CW Network in three years, the superhero series Arrow appears to be right on target. The cast and crew of the show were on hand at New York Comic-Con to reveal a sneak peek at Arrow’s first nine episodes. Centering on the return of Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), a young Starling City billionaire feared lost at sea, Arrow follows his exploits as the masked vigilante, Green Arrow. While common criminals are learning to fear his name, the upcoming episodes feature a host of named villains, such as Deadshot, Deathstroke, The Huntress and China White. Hit the jump to see them in the NYCC exclusive footage.

The Tournament comes out of the gates guns blazing/blood splattering and for 90 minutes keeps that momentum going. It is one of those rare straight-to-DVD action films that avoids looking super low budget and lame, features a cast of pretty well-known actors and a contains a heaping helping of blood, bullets, as well as some awesome stunts. But is there some higher meaning to the film or any redeeming qualities outside of mindless violence?
Find out in my Blu-ray review, after the jump.
We just noticed, but the first trailer for Scott Manns “The Tournament” popped up on YouTube. Its got Russian watermarks and subtitles, so something tells me this thing shouldnt even be on the interweb. Either way, it looks like a fairly competent action flick starring Robert Carlyle, Ving Rhames, Ian Somerhalder and Kelly Hu blasting everything in their path to hell. Synopsis and trailer after the jump.
