Erster Trailer zum Koreanischen Actioner Bloody Fight

Sehr kreativer Titel…

Synopsis:

In the 11th year of Kwang Hae-gun, Jo-seon soldiers go to war with China after an invasion. In the middle of Manchu, three people who have barely survived are being cornered by the Chinese forces, and begin a bloody battle not with their enemies but with their friends.

Reign of Assassins: HK DVD und Blu-ray Disc im November

Ich habe mich in letzter Zeit ja ein bisschen zurück gehalten wenn es um DVD und Blu-ray Disc Veröffentlichungen aus Hong Kong geht, aber ich dachte mir, daß diese Meldung ein paar von euch, die nicht regelmässig im Asian Blu-ray Guide vorbei schauen interessieren dürfte.
YesAsia hat nämlich frisch die Hong Konger DVD und Blu-ray Disc von John Woos Reign of Assassins gelistet. Die Scheiben sollen am 25. November erscheinen und (wie für Mega Star üblich) mit englischen Untertiteln ausgestattet sein. Als Regionalcode der Blu-ray Disc wird aktuell Code A angegeben, aber auch hier zeigt sich Mega Star oft recht importfreundlich.

Get the Flash Player to see the wordTube Media Player.

Synopsis:

428AD, Bodhi, a Southern India prince became a Buddhist monk and set off for China, earning a hallowed reputation as a mystical martial artist. Following his death, his remains mysteriously disappeared.

Hundreds of years later, Zhang, a high-ranking court official, is assassinated by Drizzle. Zhang’s son Jingxiu, whilst mourning his father’s death, is assailed by a group assassins. They leave him for dead, but somehow he survives and escapes their clutches.

Drizzle, a talented warrior herself, finds herself in possession of Bodhi’s remains, and begins her quest to return them to their rightful resting place at Yunhe Temple. The Black Stone, a team of deadly assassins who employed Drizzle, are also after the remains and the powerful secret they hold. To hide from The Black Stone, Drizzle undergoes drastic facial surgery and changes her name to Zeng Jing (Michelle Yeoh). She flees to Beijing, where she meets and falls in love with Jiang, soon to become her husband.

After a confrontation in Beijing, Zeng Jing’s identity is uncovered and both she and Jiang must flee for their lives. As Zeng Jing kills off members of the gang while they are on the run, she quickly realises Jiang is actually Jingxiu, and he is seeking to avenge his father’s death. This leads to a lethal triangle and a fight to death between our hero Zeng Jing, Jiang and The Black Stone.

The only question remains who will be the last ones standing to uncover the secret of Bodhi’s remains?

Zwei Poster zu Like the Moon Escaping from the Clouds (Blades of Blood)

Zwei neue Poster zu Lee Jun-Iks koreanischen Wuxia Drama Blades of Blood aka Like the Moon Escaping from the Clouds (구르믈 버서난 달처럼) das im April in die koreanischen Kinos kommt. Ich weiß ja, daß der blinde Schwertkämpfer (Hwang Jeong-Min) hier sein bestes Zatoichiimitationsgesicht auflegt, aber irgendwie erinnert mich der Gesichtsausdruck immer an etwas völlig anderes…

Neuer Trailer zu Like the Moon Escaping from the Clouds (Blades of Blood)

Die frisch eröffnete offizielle Website zu Like the Moon Escaping from the Clouds (구르믈 버서난 달처럼) zeigt uns einen kompletten Trailer zum kommenden (April 2010) koreanischen Wuxia Drama von Regisseur Lee Jun-Ik. Für den internationalen Markt wurde dem Werk übrigens der Titel *Movietrailerguystimme* Blades of Blood (!!!) verpasst.
Klingt in meinen Augen ein bisschen nach dem, was die Weinsteins bei asiatischen Filmen regelmässig auf die US Cover klatschen…

Poster und Plot zu John Woo’s Rain of Swords in The Pugilistic World (Jianyu Jianghu)

Die Jungs von Wu-Jing.org haben das erste (recht spartanische) Poster sowie eine recht detailierte Plotbeschreibung zum kommenden Wuxia Abenteuer Rain of Swords in The Pugilistic World (Jianyu Jianghu) ausgebuddelt.
Rain of Swords wird unter anderem von John Woo und Terence Chang produziert während Su Chao Bin Regie führt. In den Hauptrollen wird es ab Sommer 2010 Michelle Yeoh, Jung Woo Sung, Barbie Hsu, Paw Hee Ching, Wang Xue Qi und Shawn Yue zu sehen geben.

428AD, Bodhi, a Southern India prince became a Buddhist monk and set off for China, earning a hallowed reputation as a mystical martial artist. Following his death, his remains mysteriously disappeared.

The Black Stone, a team of deadly assassins who employed Drizzle, are also after the remains and the powerful secret they hold.
