You can blame poor marketing for not knowing of this prior to this week but actor Li Chen’s new starrer and directing debut, Sky Hunter, is getting a limited theatrical release in North America this Friday. The film is already out in China as of last week as one in a string of patriotic Chinese action adventures – this from the producer of films like Wu Jing’s Wolf Warrior and its summer 2017 hit sequel.
China isn’t falling asleep at all these days. Riding the coat tails of its successes in military-centric cinema, we now have actor Li Chen (Chronicles Of The Ghostly Tribe) who has since taken the mantle with his own directorial debut on Sky Hunter, currently poised for a September 29 release in China.
Not to subject itself too much to period pieces to stand on its own, China’s latest propaganda push is going vertical this year in Chronicles Of The Ghostly Tribe star Li Chen’s latest, Sky Hunter. There’s not much in terms of an available plot here but the first teaser is now online with lots of military muscle and might to gin up attention, along with some starpower joinihg Chen with actress Fan Bingbing and actor Wang Qianyuan.
