Despite all the blockbuster movies this summer, it seems we really haven't had a great soundtrack to go with them. "The Avengers" melange of alt-rock fodder was a bit embarrassing, and the great selection of songs from "Take This Waltz" do not have an official release just yet. But a couple of movies are just around the corner, that should please both the eyes and ears at the same time.

What do you get when you let RZA direct a kung fu movie he wrote with Eli Roth, presented by Quentin Tarantino? You get "Man With The Iron Fists" and as the first trailer revealed, it's not holding anything back.

It was probably inevitable that RZA would eventually strike out and make his own martial arts movie. The Wu-Tang Clan's resident beatmaker, chess genius, philosopher and more has made no secret of his love for the cheapie chopsocky movies he watched growing up from the very moment Enter The 36 Chambers dropped and blew minds. But that it would turn out be as outrageously fun-looking as it does here makes it all the more a pleasant surprise.

Says Tracy Morgan Wants It TooWith the recent buzz about the gestating Tupac and N.W.A. biopics, we kind of forgot this was happening at all, but waaaaay back in 2009 Wu-Tang Clan member, actor, director, chess master and producer RZA first hinted that a biopic about the eccentric and amazing Ol' Dirty Bastard was being bandied about. "We have talked about [a biopic film]. His estate is pretty confused, like any estate is in our country. The estate is kind of confused on what to do, and all the rights and all that shit, but it’s definitely been talked about," he said. And it looks like that talk has developed into something substantial.

Despite being an ugly, cartoony, badly-acted mess with very little to recommend it, 2009's "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" managed a fairly impressive $150 million gross in a late summer slot, which is the very least of an excuse that franchise-happy Paramount needed to greenlight a sequel. But that doesn't mean that they're not going to shake things up: director Stephen Sommers clashed with the studio on the original, and has departed for the supernatural thriller "Odd Thomas," while an eye on the bottom line has seen most of the original cast members, including Marlon Wayans, Christopher Ecclestone, Rachel Nichols, Sienna Miller, Dennis Quaid and, most unsurprisingly, the since-gone-supernova Joseph Gordon-Levitt, put out to pasture.

RZA’s obsession with with all things shaolin has, as you probably already know, well informed his hop-hop career and it has now snowballed into a feature. First announced early last year, the kung fu film “The Man with the Iron Fist” is now shooting in China. What in the hell is that, you say? Well, it is a $20 million dollar Universal-funded martial arts flick directed, written, produced and, of course, starring RZA.
