The first trailers for Transit and Dragon Eyes are Below:


TRANSIT:
The family camping trip was meant to reunite the Sidwell family. It’s not. After being imprisoned for tax evasion, Nate Sidwell has lost the respect of his wife and his children. Then when he suspects their truck is being followed, he gets arrested for aggressive driving and has to spend a night in jail.

Just when it seems the trip cannot get any worse, the Sidwells discover $4,000,000 cash in their luggage rack, and that Nate was wrong. They aren’t being followed. They're being hunted - by four ruthless killers, who will stop at nothing to retrieve their millions





Dragon Eyes
Welcome to St. Jude, a town where rival gangs rule the streets, where the chief of police is a cold-blooded killer, and where citizens have learned to keep their heads down. Then comes out-of-towner Ryan Hong. His vintage car attracts attention. His unbelievable marital arts skills cause a sensation. Sensing a human weapon, the rival gangs bid for Hong’s allegiance. But Hong is committed to honoring an old promise to a mentor he met in prison: that he will "do good" wherever possible.

With a lethal combination of street smarts and martial arts, Hong vows to lift St. Jude's citizens out of fear... Even if he must turn into a one-man army to do it

Dragon Eyes sounds like a remake of "Last Man Standing" which itself is a remake of...of....rats, can't think of the name offhand, but it could still be interesting.
Or it could be a load of no-budget garbage.
