Today we have for your a new trailer for Peter Chan and Donnie Yen co-directed martial arts, film noir epic Dragon (Wu Xia).
The film played Out Of Competition at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, and despite having a few glaring flaws, it is definitely a film to keep an eye on.
In the late Qing Dynasty, Liu (Donnie Yen) is a papermaker, leading a simple life with his wife Ayu (Tang Wei) and their two sons. Into their remote village comes Detective Xu (Takeshi Kaneshiro), who is investigating the deaths of two bandits during a robbery. Xu quickly realizes that the incident in question was no ordinary botched robbery – and his dogged inquiry threatens to dredge up the dark secrets of Liu’s buried past, threatening not only Liu and his family, but the entire village.
No release date is set yet but The Weinstein Company will handle North American distribution.
