Directed by renowned Hong Kong director Daniel Lee, and executive produced by and starring Jackie Chan, “Dragon Blade” is a highly anticipated 3-D blockbuster, set to be released in March.
Costing 65 million USD, “Dragon Blade” is the most expensive Chinese movie ever made. In addition to Jackie Chan, the principal cast includes Hollywood star John Cusack, Academy award-winning actor Adrien Brody, Super Junior‘s Choi Siwon and Chinese actresses Lin Peng and Wang Ruoxin.
The official poster for the movie was released on February 5th in preparation for its upcoming domestic premiere date, which is set to be on March 12th.
This movie is destined to be a huge hit, because the plot is based on a legend. It tells a story that took place during the Han Dynasty in China. Huo An, the Commander of the Protectorate of the Western Regions, (played by Jackie Chan) dedicates himself to keeping the peace between the tribes that inhabit the Western Region. He has formed a peacekeeping squad with his closest comrades. However, they are framed for corruption and sent to the border, to work as slaves. Meanwhile, General Lucius of the Roman Empire arrives, escorting his ward, who is escaping persecution in Rome. Starting as enemies, Huo An and Lucius eventually become sworn brothers, creating a thrilling legend.
Super Junior‘s Choi Siwon takes up the role of Huo An’s right-hand man. Shrouded in enigma, it makes us eager to find out more about his mysterious character.
I am sure this movie will make a huge success. For me, I love historic movies. I have been a fan since childhood, movies like Alexander The Great and Troy, as well old Hollywood blockbusters like Ben Hur. This movie is likely going to take place with those classics.
Are you looking forward to seeing the movie?
