Actress Zhang Jingchu has long been a prospect of mine since first seeing her in Rush Hour 3 and Tsui Hark's Seven Swords. Gladly she's making another leading lady move this summer with director Pan Anzi's stellar-looking neo-Western, For A Few Bullets and the most recent artwork looks just as delightful.
Kenny Lin, actress Liu Xiaoqing, and actors Vivian Dawson, Tengger and Kenneth Tsang outline the cast with a story that centers on a reluctant partnership between a beautiful government gunslinger and a con-artist in order to protect the national Imperial seal from the Japanese military. The first official trailer now making the rounds hints a little more at what may be happening within the story, but it's not without the promise of some big spectacle and epic gun-toting action to boot.
Check it out below ahead of its July 15 release, and keep an eye out for further release news.

I think it's safe to say you know your movie sucks when you not only screw the rights holders whose name and content you base your unsanctioned film on, but when said rights holders join the chorus of critics panning your movie from literally every angle of the internet. 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. It's a film that otherwise garners caution for fans as a rebooted fanfare that nonetheless has actor and martial artist Alain Moussi leading the action vehicle next to the star of its original iteration, actor Jean-Claude Van Damme.
