Following their announcement of Dante Lam’s 2016 hit film, Operation Mekong, U.S. distributor Well Go USA is also announcing their presentation of Ringo Lam’s latest, Sky On Fire. This one had its share of mixed reactions upon its release last November but still bodes as a fan favorite for those keen on actor Daniel Wu who leads the film on top of his current momentum on the small screen.
Legendary filmmaker Ringo Lam (City on Fire, Full Alert) returns to his Hong Kong roots with SKY ON FIRE, the explosive crime drama packed with high-speed car chases, dramatic plot twists and fiery gunfights. The film also marks Daniel Wu’s return to Asian cinema following his stateside success on the TV series “Into the Badlands” and the international blockbuster Warcraft: The Beginning. Wu plays a security officer who becomes embroiled in an epic battle to protect stem cell research, which can potentially cure cancer, from falling into the wrong hands. Also starring Zhang Ruoyun in his feature film debut, Zhang Jingchu (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation), Chang Hsiao Chuan (Wild City) and Amber Kuo (Lord of Shanghai), SKY ON FIRE blasts onto digital May 2 and on Blu-ray™ and DVD June 13 from Well Go USA Entertainment.
In this driving, non-stop action thriller, the chief security officer at a top-secret medical facility (Daniel Wu, “Into the Badlands”) finds himself caught in an explosive battle when a young thief and his accomplices steal a groundbreaking curative medicine. After discovering the true origins of the medicine, the officer must decide whom he can trust to protect the cure from falling into the wrong hands and prevent an all-out war from bringing the city to its knees.
