Warrior's Gate Trailer

"I need you to guard the most precious treasure of the Empire." Don't miss out on this one, movie lovers. EuropaCorp has unveiled a trailer for a crazy new action film titled Warrior's Gate, which is the latest feature co-written by Luc Besson & Robert Mark Kamen (of the Taken and Transporter series). Warrior's Gate is about a teenager gamer living in California who is transported to China and learns to fight as a kung fu warrior, in order to save the princess (of course). It's basically a twist on The Last Starfighter. This is a a co-production between France and China, which is an odd pairing, but it works. The cast includes Uriah Shelton as Jack, Mark Chao, Dave Bautista, Ni Ni, Francis Ng, and Sienna Guillory. This actually looks kind of cool, but also looks like it's straight out of the back of a video rental store in the 90s. Have fun.

Here's the first official trailer (+ two posters) for Matthias Hoene's Warrior's Gate, from YouTube:

A teenager (Uriah Shelton) from California is magically transported to China and must learn to convert his video game skills into those of a Kung Fu warrior. Warrior's Gate is directed by British filmmaker Matthias Hoene, of the horror comedy Cockneys vs Zombies previously. The screenplay is written by Luc Besson & Robert Mark Kamen, writers of the screenplays for the Taken and Transporters series, as well as Colombiana, Bandidas, Kiss of the Dragon, and The Fifth Element. The film is also produced by Luc Besson for EuropaCorp. Warrior's Gate already opened in China late last year, then Hong Kong this January, and it has a release date in France this March. We're not sure when this will open in the US, stay tuned. Thoughts?

He's certainly hit-and-miss, but Luc Besson's movies are always interesting to check out...even that Jimmy Fallon/Queen Latifah thing (makes you go WHAA?)

Well, those unusual and unnecessary experiences. But the girl is sweet, I must say ...

Seems to be a China money movie. I'm sort of up for these daft films when I can squeeze them in.

Ugh. Embarrassing for everyone involved, but I'm sure kids will LOVE it.

Well… "écrit par Luc Besson et Robert Mark Kamen". Everything has been said. Predictable and boring…
