Air Strike Trailer

"Can't just send these kids up there to get shot down." United Entertainment + Lionsgate have debuted a full-length official trailer for the film Air Strike, a Chinese production about WWII, which has gone under different titles including The Bombing and Unbreakable Spirit. The film is about five Chinese people who fight their way through intense Japanese Air Force attacks to protect an important military machine in Chongqing. In addition to the Chinese cast, the film also stars Bruce Willis and Adrien Brody, who are being put front and center for the US release. The cast also includes Ye Liu, Song Seung-heon, William Wai-Ting Chan, Nicholas Tse, Janine Chun-Ning Chang, Fan Wei, and Fan Bingbing. This film features seriously epic CGI sequences of WWII bombings and air attacks, along with all the impassioned performances from the cast. It looks fairly entertaining, but also looks extremely cheesy and very jingoistic.

Here's the first official trailer (+ posters) for Xiao Feng's Air Strike, direct form YouTube:

During World War II, five different Chinese people fight their way through Japanese Air Force attacks to protect an important military machine in Chongqing, 1940. The project was filmed as a memorial for the 70th anniversary of the Allied victory in WWII. Air Strike is directed by Chinese filmmaker Xiao Feng, director of the film Hushed Roar previously. The screenplay is written by Ping Chen, with translations by Tie Dong Zhou. This hasn't premiered at any film festivals or otherwise. Lionsgate will release Xiao Feng's Air Strike in select US theaters starting October 26th, the same day as release in China. Who's interested?

What have Bruce Willis and Adrien Brody done to be getting such terrible scripts?!? This looks AWFUL. Bottom of the bargain bin for this one...

Dunno about Brody, but Willis sure as hell deserves this.

Because Bruce stopped acting or caring for good scripts since a while.

At what point was Bruce Willis acting in literary masterpieces?

chuckpenz on Aug 30, 2018


No need to be part of masterpieces to be a fine actor. Many brilliant actors star in decent to good movies. and they improve these movies by their presence alone. Bruce Willis on the other hand doesn't seem to give a crap on his performance or on the quality of movies he's playing in. When you reach this point, it's better to retire.

I think he's a decent actor, but he's been placed into these stereotypical tough guy roles. It's like he's stuck and Idk if he'll ever be able to break out of it...maybe he doesn't want to?

This looks as epic as it does awful

Jon Odishaw on Aug 29, 2018


The trailer is incoherent, I can't imagine how the movie will be. Oh, also, the voiceover sounds like the guy from Honest Movie Trailers. I kept waiting for a punch line.

This will be a massive box office success... in China! I assume all the English dialogue and Bruce Willis footage is in the trailer.

Money money money money...MONEY!
