This month I’m hosting a rare giveaway for Sakra, one of the latest titles arriving on DVD and Blu-Ray next week. Donnie Yen directs and stars in the film and is joined by a bevy of actors Wu Yue, Yuqi Chen, Eddie Cheung, and Yase Liu for this Jin Yong adaptation.
Sakra opens in select theaters on April 14, and on Digital beginning April 18 from Well Go USA.
Welp, it’s about that time. Donnie Yen and his fellow John Wick: Chapter 4 cohorts are running the gamut of daytime and late night talk show hosts and the star also happens to be the subject of his most recent shared directorial venture with Kam Ka Wai, Sakra, based on the work of late literary legend “Jin Yong”. The pic also stars Chen Yuqi, Cya Liu, Wai Ying Hung and Wu Yue.
It’s only a matter of time now until martial arts fans in North America get a proper trailer and timetable for the release of Śakra, the newest adaptation of a Louis Cha literary classic from action star Donnie Yen who directs. According to Screendaily’s Michael Rosser on Wednesday, Well Go USA negotiated the deal with the filmmakers reps at Mandarin Motion Pictures to acquire rights to the film.
Taking the reins at directing his first feature since 2004, Donnie Yen is back to show he’s got what it takes to conquer both sides of the lens and this time with Śakra, based author Jin Yong’s “Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils” (1963) for his own treatment. Yen directs and he also produces the pic in reunion with Wong Jing with a cast that also includes Yukee Chen, Cya Liu and Grace Wong (Line Walker 1 & 2), along with Wu Yue (Ip Man 4) and Kara Hui (Wu Xia).
Action star Donnie Yen is back in the spotlight with Śakra, his sixth and latest directorial effort in nearly twenty years since the Barbara Wong co-helmer, Protégé de la Rose Noire.
THR‘s Patrick Brzeski’s latest report reveals a first look at sales art for one of action star Donnie Yen’s newest tentpole ventures, Śakra, reteaming him with mega producer Wong Jing (Chasing The Dragon) for an adaptation of 1963 Chinese wuxia best-seller, “Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils”.
