Action superstar Jackie Chan and the cast of his new film Dragon Blade – Super Junior’s Choi Siwon, Hollywood actors John Cusack, Adrien Brody, and actresses Lin Peng as well as Wang Ruo Xin – will be in Singapore from 9th – 11th Feb 2015. They will attend the movie’s Singapore premiere, said film distributor Encore Films in a media release on Friday (Dec 5).
Singapore is the first stop on the promotional tour of Asia for Dragon Blade.
Helmed by “14 Blades” director Daniel Lee, Dragon Blade is set in 48BC, and revolves around Huo An (Chan), a Chinese commander who is tasked with protecting China’s Western borders during the Han dynasty.
Huo is accused of treason and winds up as a slave labourer, but he still manages to rally the Chinese forces to repel a small invading Roman army led by Lucius (John Cusack). However, an even greater challenge lies in wait for Huo. He must find a way to stop the ambitious Tiberius (Adrien Brody), who marches towards the Chinese border gate with a vast army.
The film will be simultaneously released across Asia on 19th Feb, during the Lunar New Year period.
