Yes, Cyril Raffaelli always kicks ass, this is true. The man has been a major behind the scenes presence in virtually every major action picture produced by Luc Besson's EuropaCorp but Raffaelli never really got his due until he finally took the lead alongside David Belle - co-founder of extreme sport parkour - in the international hit Banlieue 13 - released on these shores as District B13. The man is a potent fusion of power and grace and we've been waiting for more from him ever since.
Well, as has been well chronicled already more is coming in the form of Banlieue 13: Ultimatum, the upcoming sequel to the original hit. As they make their way through production the film makers have been posting a series of behind the scenes videos from the picture chronicling pretty much every aspect of the production. We posted the first three clips here but they are well beyond those three now. In fact, yesterday they arrived at number thirteen. And if you're thinking that a film with thirteen in the title would want to post a little something special with video number thirteen, you're absolutely right. What they've given us is a behind the scenes look at Raffaelli and co choreographing, rehearsing and then running through a martial arts sequence at full speed. Very tasty and you'll find it - along with the first three clips - below the break.
