Watch: Jackie Chan & Adrien Brody in 'Dragon Blade' Official Trailer
"If you stand with us you will be butchered." Lionsgate has debuted the official US trailer for Dragon Blade, a historic action epic from China directed by Daniel Lee, produced by & starring Jackie Chan. This "action spectacle on a grand scale" features the fight for the Silk Road when East and West collide, in a story about warriors fighting against warriors. Adrien Brody (screaming his heart out) stars as Tiberius, John Cusack stars as Lucius, Jackie Chan stars as Huo An, with Sharni Vinson as Lady Crassus, and Alice Aoki as the Queen. While the footage does look action packed, and that arrow-to-the-face shot is awesome, I'm not so sure about the rest of the hammy acting. Maybe they're just out-of-context scenes? Let's hope so.
Here's the official trailer for Daniel Lee's Dragon Blade, direct from Lionsgate's YouTube:
When corrupt Roman leader Tiberius (Adrien Brody) arrives with a giant army to claim the Silk Road, Huo An (Jackie Chan) and his group of trained warriors teams up with an elite legion of defected Roman soldiers led by General Lucius (John Cusack) to maintain the delicate balance of power in the region. To protect his country and his new friends, Huo An gathers the warriors of thirty-six ethnic nations together to fight Tiberius in an incredible epic battle. Dragon Blade is written and directed by filmmaker Daniel Lee, of Black Mask, Moonlight Express, Dragon Squad and 14 Blades previously. It was produced by Jackie Chan and Susanna Tsang. The film was initially released in Asia in February this year, and was a "massive success". Lionsgate will be releasing Dragon Blade in US theaters + VOD starting September 4th this fall.

Wow, that doesn't look good at all. John Cusack looks incredibly out of place, that's why I'm sure they had to remind me he's a Golden Globe winner. Oh well, to Netflix it is.

This is some of the most awkward casting I've ever seen

Why not add Melissa McCarthy as Chans love interest. And Zach Galifianakis as the infamous King Fock Yu Halt.

Did Adrien Brody just catch a sword by the blade in that trailer? Good to see Norton got so into the character he got ripped like 300 extra. Looks set to be the best film ever invented by science.

This was released in Singapore when I was there in February. Terrible piece of shit, this is.

I can't stand Brody.I don't want to sound like a shallow prick, but I honestly think its the nose. Its so goddamn big. But he wouldn't have the wit to back it up like Steve Martin in Roxanne.

The nose-joking scene in Roxanne, that's a classic man...

showing..... < Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job I’ve had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $177 per hour. I work through this link, < www.Netcash9.Com

Huh, those movies they make these days ... However, I feel somehow sorry for John Cusack. He's like Neelix among Klingons over there, man ...
