DRAGON BLADE Gets A U.S. Release Date And Poster!
It was back in April that Lionsgate alerted moviegoers in a press release of its newly-formed distribution arm, Lionsgate Premiere with action star Jackie Chan's Spring success story, Dragon Blade to be the first of the slate. Since then, it appears Chan has been intent on making headlines as much as possible whilst continuing to do away with any talk of retirement whatsoever with Rush Hour 4 and Shanghai Dawn among several to which he has since confirmed between now and the past year, on top of managing a new media academy in Wuhan as the Dean.
Set in China during the Han dynasty (206-220 AD), Dragon Blade follows Huo An (Chan), an official framed and enslaved for a crime he didn’t commit. Soon thereafter, however, he meets Roman soldier in Cusack’s Lucius and the pair begin to form an unlikely alliance.
