It’s taken roughly four years to fund and complete and last year was the final stretch to apply the necessary finishing touches. But now, the word is out now and the latest action comedy romp, Unlucky Stars, is on-par for an eventful screening in San Francisco on February 19 with further release dates pending. The film marks actor, martial artist and stuntman Dennis Ruel‘s feature-length directorial debut, long billed as a longstanding homage to old school martial arts films and the golden era of Hong Kong action cinema – and not for nothing either, with a slew of performances by some of today’s biggest and brightest independent filmmakers, actors and action choreographers ever to hit the internet in the last fifteen years. So indeed, Unlucky Stars is way more than just a movie…it’s a celebration, and one that has been a long time coming!
When Peru’s Biggest Action Film Star and Jordan’s newest rising talent find themselves pursued by a notorious Bookie, a pair of private investigators are forced to choose between their job and their conscience.
Several teasers and featurettes have already made their way online in the last few years, but we now have our first full trailer to accomodate the film’s 2015 arrival which you may now watch below. Unlucky Stars features lead performances by Ruel, Ken Quitugua and co-star, action director Vlad Rimburg, along with actress Giovanni Espiritu, actors Jose Montesinos and Sari Sabella, Sam Hargrave, Emmanuel Manzanares, Shawn Bernal, Steven Yu and many, many more.
