Press is officially underway for the upcoming release of the new thriller, Tik Tok, which opens on July 15 in China. The film spreads its wings a bit for director Li Jun and the shared partnership between production banners, Beijing Hairun and South Korea-based Dhuta Co. Ltd who are reportedly on track to produce several more pictures together after this.
The film sees Wallace Chung (Monster Hunt, Three) in a villain role opposite Lee Jung-Jae (Assassination, Big Match) in a story that pits cop against suspect in the wake of a bombing during a soccer game between China and South Korea. Following a tightly-scheduled shoot last year, the first trailer is finally out and about along with new artwork, and from the looks of it, companies Hairun and Dhuta have a pretty good thing going. Check it out!

That is the level of achievement you have reached if your name is George Nolfi and you've directed a film called Birth Of The Dragon, long hyped to be a hopefully legendary homage to Bruce Lee, the late founder of Jeet Kune Do and patriarch of American martial arts movie fandom.

John Stockwell's Kickboxer: Vengeance is now available wherever movies are sold in the U.S. and Canada with other screenings pending.
