It’s probably a good thing that it’s taking as long as it has for the release of actor, producer and debut director Wu Jing‘s latest offering, Wolf Warrior. Production wrapped long ago on deck for what would have been either a late 2014 or January release in China before it was decided to add some IMAX/3D muscle, and for what it’s worth, it could pay off.
Also produced by Lv Jianmin, Wu stars as a defiant Chinese commando operative whose skill set is put to use while training a new squad of elite commandos, only to come in the crosshairs of vengeful foreign mercenaries. Actor Scott Adkins stars opposite Wu as the main villain with fight choreography by Wu cohort, Nicky Li Chung-Chi (Legendary Assassin, Invisible Target) in what could only be one of the most highly anticipated screen bouts this year prior to Wu‘s goes forthcoming brawl with action cinema favorite, Tony Jaa in SPL 2: A Time For Consequences later this year, and luckily, with all the waiting that filmgoers overseas have had to endure, a new release date has been set for March 6, 2015 in China, accompanied by a fresh slate of character posters and stills, and an explosive new featurette just beneath, courtesy of MTime.
Check it all out below, and as improbable as this may be, let’s hope this film gets the same IMAX/3D treatment beyond borders. This is exciting!
