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.

This too, ON TOP of the latest teaser fof his new globetrotting action adventure, Skiptrace, make it all appear less of a peak for Chan's career and more like he's just getting started as he isn't stopping any time soon. While we're at it though, it looks like we won't have to wait to long in North America for Dragon Blade to arrive with word from Chan's official Facebook fan page of the film's limited theatrical and digital release on September 4, 2015, and he also shared the new poster which isn't too dissimilar from its domestic one sheets, but otherwise is solid artwork; To Lionsgate's credit though - aside from their previous renaming of certian Asian titles (see Ninja Masters), I'm glad they didn't rename the film "Desert Ninjas" or something like that. Were it not for Chan's clout however, I'm pretty sure that would be the case. And I would require a check.

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.

Daniel Lee directs with Chan joined by John Cusack, Adrien Brody, Sharni Vinson, Peng Lin and Si Won Choi. If you're not familiar with the footage yet, a teaser trailer ahead of its release in China earlier this year can be seen below.
