Co-directed by King of Action John Woo and starring the stunning Michelle Yeoh, Reign of Assassins leaps on to DVD on 25 February 2013! Described as ‘the best wuxia since Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’ by The Global Times, and awarded 4 stars by Empire, this period-set martial arts actioner combines the action-comedy and romance of Mr. & Mrs. Smith with the identity swap thrills of Face/Off and is an absolute must-see!

To celebrate the release of Reign of Assassins we’re giving away a copy on DVD courtesy of eOne!

In Ancient China, “Drizzle” is the most deadly and ruthless assassin of the Dark Stone gang. After a life of theft and murder, she seeks to atone for her ways and leave the gang forever. Undergoing a drastic procedure to alter her appearance, she changes her name to Jing and starts a new life in the capital.

Even with her newfound life as a shopkeeper and a budding romance to Ah-Sheng, the Dark Stone gang is hot on her trail. She alone holds the secret of the mystical Buddhist monk’s remains, which legend says the possessor will gain control of the whole world. The gang will stop at nothing in their pursuit to control this power.

No comments: Links to this post

John Woo co-directed Reign Of Assassins this friday will get itself a limited cinema release before been released on DVD  later this month. Reign Of Assassins (Jianyu) has an all-star cast in this period-set martial arts actioner that combines the action-comedy and romance of “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” with the identity swap thrills of “Face/Off”.

Nominated for ten Hong Kong Film Awards (including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Action Choreography, Best Cinematography), this is far and away the classiest and best-choreographed martial arts extravaganza we’ve seen since “House Of Flying Daggers”. John Woo’s inimitable directorial touch, sumptuous visuals, astonishing action set-pieces and a beautiful and extremely talented cast featuring the cream of Asian cinema, all performing at the top of their game, make this a must-see.

First Trailer For Song Hae-sung's Korean remake of A Better Tomorrow - INVINCBLE

No comments: Links to this post

source FILMSMASH
Song Hae-sung''s Korean remake of the classic John Woo Hong-Kong thriller noir A BETTER TOMORROW, now called INVINCBLE has its first trailer.
The talk of the movie has stirred up a few corners as the original movie (as well as movie 2) have some iconic scenes which some up the whole reason why Hong Kong thriller/action flicks have such a massive following worldwide. According to the director only the characters as well as the basic set up of the story remaining with the rest having a modern retake on the original, I think their treading on eggshells as the 1980's feel and look of the movie madeit so good.
As it's Korean the badguys in this version will be North Korean special forces entering the world of organised crime, mmm what do you think guys?

Anyway check out the trailer after the break...
