CineAsia based out of the UK is really keeping Asian action cinema alive with its releases of films from that part of the world and this May they are stepping up and releasing the long-awaited war film The Battle of Lake Changjin featuring international action star Wu Jing (Wolf Warrior franchise) on home video and Digital.
Boasting fantastic battle sequences that are visceral and bloody, this film took three of the finest Hong Kong filmmakers in Tsui Hark, Dante Lam and Chen Kaige to bring it all together and make it work. The payoff has been felt as The Battle of Lake Changjin is the highest grossing war film ever assembled.
I’ve been waiting to check this one out as I’m a rabid fan of all things war movies so be sure to be on the lookout for my thoughts in the near future,
In the meantime, check out the official press release fand trailer from CineAsia below!
Trinity CineAsia presents The Battle at Lake Changjin, a cinematic epic co-directed by three master filmmakers, Tsui Hark, Dante Lam and Chen Kaige, which would go on to become the highest grossing war film of all time. It’s released Blu-ray, DVD and Digital platforms from 16th May
