We covered this film on the old S&A site, while it was still playing the festival circuit, and when it enjoyed a lengthy though limited theatrical run in 2010.

Here's the trailer for the super low budget absolutely no shame about it rip off of Predator, titled Flesh Wounds, starring Kevin Sorbo (you know that guy who played Hercules in the cheap syndicated show awhile back), and our guy Bokeem Woodbine. If it's not obvious, the film will be released exclusively on DVD on July 26th.

In retrospect, Mario Van Peeples' Posse is sort of like Spike Lee's Miracle at St. Anna. In other words, here was finally the film you'd been dying for - a traditional Hollywood period genre movie based on a real event, that was an answer to all those similar Hollywood films which failed to address the fact that black people had been heavily involved historically with the certain event.

I am a full blown, hard core blu-ray convert, and there are SO many films I'm still waiting for to come out on blu-ray, like Michael Mann's Thief, Lawrence of Arabia, William Friedkin's terribly underrated Sorcerer , and there's that blu-ray of Spike Lee's Malcolm X that was supposed to come out in January, but was pulled at the last minute, because of the music clearing rights issue.
