About the Movie
DRAGON BLADE is a legendary blockbuster directed by highly-acclaimed director, Daniel Lee (“14 Blades”, “Three Kingdoms”), starring Jackie Chan who also works as executive producer, John Cusack, Adrien Brody and Choi Siwon. This epic blockbuster is filmed at a budget of US$65 million, a record-breaking figure for a Chinese film.
Synopsis – Huo An (Jackie Chan), the Commander of the Protection Squad of the Western Regions, who protects China’s border and secures peace among warring tribes on the Silk Road. When a convoy of gold bearing a foreign insignia is discovered inside China, he is accused of treason and sent to the border as a slave laborer.
With only a small group of his most loyal soldiers, including right hand man Yin Po (Choi Siwon), he must fight to survive in the prison camp. When an army of Roman soldiers led by General Lucius (John Cusack) appears at the border gate, they outmatch the Chinese guards. However when Huo An enters the battle, he single-handedly turns it around and earns the respect of Lucius. Among the Romans is Publius, the blind youngest son of Rome’s Consul Crassus. Crassus was assassinated by his eldest son, Tiberius (Adrien Brody), who leads 100,000 soldiers towards the border gate to kidnap Lucius. This leads to a thrilling piece of history that has never before been told.
DRAGON BLADE is co-distributed by Encore Films and Golden Village Pictures in Singapore. It is scheduled for release on Chinese New Year’s Day, 19th February 2015 in Singapore.
