Fans of Asian action cinema have had much cause for celebration this weekend. Along with the relase of the trailer for director Dante Lam’s The Rescue, we now have the pofficial teaser for The Climbers which sees Wolf Warrior franchise star Wu Jing poised and ready to amke one last final assault on the infamous Mount Everest. Jing has also been seen in The Wandering Earth which recently hit Netflix. Check out the new footage below!
Official Synopsis: May 1960. Mount Everest, the second step under the cliff. The four members of the China Everest Climbing Commando are attacking the most difficult and most difficult “second step”. This is their fifth assault. The first four failures have cost them too much physical strength – …finally, the wind and snow stop the gap.
Jing is in pretty good company for this one with a cast that includes Zhang Ziyi as well as iconic action star Jackie Chan. The film was helmed by Daniel Lee with Tsui Hark serving as producer.
The Climbers is set to hit China on September 30th but expect more release word to hit in the future!
