Jackie Chan and the cast of his new film 'Dragon Blade' – Super Junior’s Choi Si-won, Hollywood actors John Cusack, Adrien Brody and actresses Lin Peng as well as Wang Ruoxin – will be in Singapore from 9 to 11 February 2015.
They will attend the movie's Singapore premiere, film distributor Encore Films said.
Singapore is the first stop on the promotional tour of Asia for 'Dragon Blade', which is produced at a budget of US$65 million (S$86 million), making it one the three most costly Chinese films of all time.
Helmed by director Daniel Lee ('14 Blade'), 'Dragon Blade' is set in 48BC, and revolves around Huo An (Chan), a Chinese commander tasked with protecting China’s western borders during the Han dynasty.
Huo is accused of treason and winds up as a slave labourer, but he still manages to rally the Chinese forces to repel a small invading Roman army led by Roman General Lucius (Cusack). The greater challenge comes in the form of the ambitious Roman Emperor Tiberius (Adrien Brody), who marches towards the Chinese border gate with a vast army.
The film will be simultaneously released across Asia on 19 February during the Chinese New Year period.
