The Action-Packed Martial-Arts Film Starring Donnie Yen Heads To Retail
On April 16, 2013!
BEVERLY HILLS, CA – Anchor Bay Entertainment and RADiUS- TWC announced today the Blu-Ray™ and DVD release of the mysterious and gripping Chinese film, DRAGON. Starring Donnie Yen (Ip Man, Ip Man II), Takeshi Kaneshiro (Red Cliff, Red Cliff II) and Wei Tang (Lust, Caution), DRAGON heads to retail on April 16, 2013 for an SRP of $29.99 for the Blu-ray™ and $24.98 for the DVD.
Liu Jin-xi (Donnie Yen) is a village craftsman whose quiet life is irrevocably shattered by the arrival of two notorious gangsters in the local general store. When Liu single-handedly saves the shopkeeper’s life, he comes under investigation by detective Xu Bai-jiu (Takeshi Kaneshiro). Convinced that Liu’s martial arts mastery belies a hidden history of training by one of the region’s vicious clans, Xu doggedly pursues the shy hero—and draws the attention of China’s criminal underworld in the process.
The DRAGON Blu-ray™ and DVD special features include: “The Making of DRAGON,” Featurettes with Donnie Yen and the “Lost in Jianghu” Music Video.
