Alan Mak, prolific co-helmer of the Infernal Affairs and Overheard movies recently paired up with co-director Anthony Pun (cinematographer: The White Storm, Monster Hunt) for a stellar new action thriller coming this Spring. That film arrives in the form of Extraordinary Mission and while not much was known at the time about this film, at least two teasers were unveiled to the public eye last year that were pretty attention getting.
This month now brings us a new trailer for the film which centers on a cop who goes deep cover to foil a drug trafficking ring. I reckon there may still be plenty more to a plot that simple but we have cast that enlists Huang Xuan, Duan Yihong, Lang Yueting, Zu Feng, Xing Jia-Dong, and David Wang, and a release date in China set for April 1.
Check out the new trailer below as well as some poster art.

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.
