Watch: Official Release Trailer for Peter Chan's 'Dragon' aka 'Wu Xia'
"What kind of man are you?" This has been a long time coming, especially because it premiered in Cannes more than a year ago. The trailer is for a film now called simply Dragon, directed by Peter Ho-Sun Cha, originally known as Wu Xia when it premiered, previously called Swordsmen as well. The film stars Donnie Yen, Takeshi Kaneshiro with Yu Wang, Kara Hui, Wu Jiang. It's a rather expansive, intense, and revealing, but still badass trailer for the martial arts drama that plays kind of like A History of Violence. It's a good film, so this is just a reminder to take a look and check it out once it's available near you. Watch and enjoy!
Here's the official US release trailer for Peter Chan's "Dragon", in high def from Apple:
In the late Qing Dynasty, LIU Jin-xi is a papermaker and father of two sons who lives a seemingly normal life with his family in a remote village. However, the arrival of a detective threatens to tear them apart…
Dragon, originally Wu Xia (or Swordsmen), is directed by popular Chinese filmmaker Peter Chan, of films like Comrades: Almost a Love Story, The Love Letter, Perhaps Love and The Warlords from 2007. The script was written by Aubrey Lam. This is premiering at the Cannes Film Festival as a Midnight Screening. It was bought by The Weinstein Company in the US, and they'll finally be releasing it this fall. Dragon arrives in theaters on November 30th, next month, but it also arrives on VOD on October 26th this month.

I actually like the look of this, never got the History of Violence thing until everybody mentioned it, but it's the first kungfu film in ages that I've wanted to check since 'Man With the Iron Fisters'

Well, if it is a version of "A History of Violence" that's a good thing as I loved that movie. I'm in for this one.
