Dolph, Van Damme and Arnold Week: Skin Trade, Pound of Flesh & Maggie

It might have been May the 4th and Revenge of the Fifth but this week is all about the action, baby! Tonight marks the Los Angeles red carpet premiere of Dolph Lundgren and Tony Jaa's Skin Trade, tomorrow is the world premiere of Van Damme's Pound of Flesh in Los Angeles and Friday marks the limited release of Arnold's zombie drama Maggie. In case you missed it, here's a quick recap of all things international action stars:

Dolph Lundgren spent Tuesday in Beverly Hills talking Skin Trade where he took part in a press conference and did a Twitter Q&A for IMDb. Co-stars Tony Jaa and Michael Jai White showed up on KTLA in the morning while Lundgren and Jaa also sat down for some interviews together. Dolph and Tony are expected to attend tonight's premiere at The Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood. TONIGHT!

Van Damme has been hanging out in Los Angeles for what seems like the longest spell in sometime. Hitting the gym, speaking at private dinners and popping up in music videos...with Charlie Sheen?! It was only a couple of weeks ago when I heard Van Damme was doing a music video and I watched the completed version last night while on an airplane. It's got everything you need, Matthew McConaughey's chest thumping from Wolf of Wall Street, chicks in bikinis, Charlie Sheen being The Sheen and JCVD yelling at an alligator, arm wrestling and showing off his famous Muscles From Brussels. Thursday night at The Grove, you can check out the red carpet for the Pound of Flesh world premiere.

Speaking of premieres, Arnold unveiled his low budget zombie drama Maggie to a tiny audience of 120 at the Sundance Cinema on Sunset a couple of Monday's ago. Made for under $10 million bucks and headed for the festival circuit, Lionsgate quickly snapped it up before letting it play at the Tribeca Film Festival. As Always, Arnold is a one man hype machine and videos of him crushing things with a tank for a charity auction, promoting Maggie and acting out all of his movies in only 6 minutes on late night. The King of Kings never rests apparently.
