For the uninitiated, Parkour is more than a sport — it's an art form, where the objective of getting from Point A to Point B in the quickest way possible demands strength, agility and focus. Its inclusion in films like Casino Royale and The Bourne Ultimatum have helped it to gain mainstream notoriety. But no films have been as instrumental in bringing Parkour to the masses as Luc Besson's 2004 film, Banlieue 13, and its 2009 sequel, Banlieue 13: Ultimatum — both of which starred Parkour's founder, David Belle. Now, ten years later, Besson and Belle are bringing the free running action stateside, with the Banlieue 13 remake, Brick Mansions.
