I had covered the Hong Kong action film The Rookies on my old site a few years ago and while the film has seen a release in China, overseas viewers have been still waiting for a domestic release stateside. Featuring Resident Evil and Monster Hunter star Milla Jovovich, the movie is now ready to hit select theaters and VOD in April.
Shout!Studios will be handling the distribution over here and they have unleashed new key art and a trailer to commemorate the release. Check them both out below!
While Jovovich has a smaller role but is splashed all over the advertising, the main stars include Alu Wang as well as Sandrine Pinna (Touch of Light) and Talu Wang (The Last Wish).
Alan Yuen, who is best known for Firestorm and writing the screenplay for New Police Story, directs the movie which is being described as a “an electrifying, globe-trotting thriller” and will see a select cinema and VOD launch on April 16th.
