With Well Go USA’s own release in tow, Cine Asia is lining up its UK/ROI release of Andrew Lau’s new ripped-from-the-headlines high altitude thriller, The Captain.
Planos, Texas-based Well Go USA has already had a joyous run this year with Louis Koo hits like White Storm 2 and Line Walker 2: Invisible Spy. The company is officially poised to stake their claim next with the home release of Kung Fu Monster, the new fantasy creature comedy from director Andrew Lau (The Guillotines, Internal Affairs trilogy).
UPDATE – March 12, 2019 (7:21pm EST): Following Andreas Wiseman’s exclusive at Deadline on Monday, Hong Kong media outlet Apple Daily is reporting that Andrew Lau knew nothing about this project. Will follow up here or in a seperate report as more updates arise. Stay tuned…

The first official teaser is now online and for a creature feature, we don’t see much creature here, but the kung fu end of things sampled here looks like a real treat.
Filmmaker Andrew Lau is back in the limelight with a brand new trailer this week for folks keen on Chinese propaganda filmlore. Thus, we have the July 28 release of The Founding Of An Army, the last of a trilogy that largely chronicles Mao Zedong’s rise to power early in the last century.
