FLYING SWORDS OF DRAGON GATE
Film Icon Jet Li Stars in Director Hark Tsui’s Visually-Stunning Epic
Debuting on Blu-ray™, Blu-ray 3D, DVD and Digital October 2nd
BEVERLY HILLS, CALIF. (September 17, 2012) – An explosive mix of warriors, fugitives and assassins converge in the desert for a deadly showdown in FLYING SWORDS OF DRAGON GATE, the multi-award winning, martial arts epic reuniting genre master Tsui Hark (Once Upon a Time in China series, Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame) with legendary action icon Jet Li (The Expendables, Lethal Weapon IV, The Forbidden Kingdom) in an action-packed, visually-breathtaking cinematic experience debuting on Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, DVD and Digital October 2nd from Indomina Releasing. The tale continues the saga of the Dragon Inn three years after it was left in ruins. A new gang has taken control of the inn as they secretly search for the entrance to the lost city of gold that legend says is hidden within. Their furtive mission is interrupted by the arrival of a beautiful fugitive from the palace accompanied by the swordsman who would die to protect her, and a group of assassins who will stop at nothing to find her. In additional the Jet Li, the exciting drama boasts a stellar cast, including Zhou Xun (Painted Skin: The Resurrection), Chen Kun (Let the Bullets Fly), Li Yuchun (Bodyguards and Assassins), Gwei Lun Mei (Secret), Mavis Fan (The Silent War) and Fan Siu Wong (Wu Dang).
At the 2012 Hong Kong Film Critics Society Awards, FLYING SWORDS OF DRAGON GATE won the Film of Merit award, while at the 2012 Hong Kong Film Awards, the film took home five statues, including Best Action Choreography and Best Visual Effects.
Set three years after Dragon Inn, innkeeper Jade has disappeared and a new inn has risen from the ashes – one that’s staffed by marauders masquerading as law-abiding citizens, who hope to unearth the fabled lost city buried in the desert.
