[UPDATED] Wu Jing's WOLF WARRIOR Howls With New Hi-Def Posters And Two Trailers!
Martial arts action star Jacky Wu Jing's current physical condition may be worse for wear at the moment following much needed surgery in recent months, and with any luck fans will see him back on the set to do what he does most awesomely, whether in front or behind the camera in some capacity. However, fans will still be able to catch Wu on the big screen early next year overseas in at least a few more films, including his directorial debut, Wolf Warrior, alongside The Expendables 2 alums, principal actress Yu Nan and fellow martial arts superstar Scott Adkins as the main villain.
The best part about this update is that the promotional campaign is finally running viral with more character posters and two new teaser trailers, with Wu in the redemptive role of Leng Feng, a rebellious Chinese commando forced to square off with a vengeful squadron of mercs in search of the solider who killed their drug lord boss. It's a perfect set up for a story that promises some of the most explosive sequences ever shot on film, raging with fire and fisticuffs with Wu and Adkins daring to light up the screen in pure IMAX and 3D fashion this coming January, which should be a real treat for Chinese moviegoers next year.
Wolf Warrior is produced by LV Jianmin with Chris Collins, Kyle Shapiro, Kevin Lee, Sona Eyambe and fellow action star Vincent Zhao rounding out the cast. Check out all the action and accompanying ink below, and as always, stay excited!
Update [2:47pm] - Here's the latest upload via Scott Adkins's YouTube channel:
On the count of actor and martial artist Scott Adkins being correct, there's a chance a third installment into the direct-to-DVD Ninja franchise could very likely happen. The Accident Man star and producer posted on his Facebook and Instagram pages stating his case to potentially get the film moving forward if producers can be swayes via reacting and commenting to the posts. Do me a favour guys. If you want to see Ninja 3 - please LIKE and COMMENT and maybe I can convince the producers to make it happen. Who wants to see Ninja 3?Both the 2009 and 2013 installments were shepherded by none other than Isaac Florentine in his fruitful pairing with Adkins for a splashy return of the very genre once popular in the 80s. The most recent offering, Ninja: Shadow Of A Tear, was riotous big screen hit at the festivals and among fans alike. The two recently shared the set for the long-awaited Boyka: Undisputed 4 from director Todor Chapkanov with Florentine producing apart from his current roll…
Re:Born is a new Japanese martial arts action thriller film by Yuji Shimomura, probably one of the greatest action coordinators, stuntmen and directors in the small, but entertaining action scene of Japan, re-uniting with Tak Sakaguchi of Versus fame and Shimomura's previous and only other feature Death Trance, the legendary martial artist and the underrated filmmaker have made not only their second and best film to date, but also one of the best action films of the year, whichever year you saw it in, because of its screenings in numerous film festivals starting from 2016.
