Let’s face facts here – the “boy traveling back in time to ancient China to help solve problems” plot is something we’ve seen before in some fashion or another. This time it’s Cockneys Vs. Zombies helmer Matthias Hoene on deck for his own take on the subject matter with actor Uriah Shelton playing our would-be virtual kung fu warrior in the new film, The Warrior’s Gate.
The film is releasing this August in China thusfar while the promotional campaign itself finally starts taking shape with our first look at the all English-speaking cast Francis Ng, Taiwanese actor Mark Chao of Black And White fame and co-star of Derek Kwok’s upcoming Wu Kong, actress Ni Ni. Also leading are Marvel familiar Dave Bautista, actress Sienna Guillory, and Eurokicker Ron Smoorenburg (Who Am I?, Time Rush) as the heroic Black Knight, as well as our dose of CGI monsters for good measure.
Watch the trailer now and keep your eyes open for further updates!
