EPIC 'DRAGON BLADE' TRAILER
WHEN EAGLE MEETS DRAGON!
There is not much to show you in this postfestive beginning of a new weekend, but, boy oh boy,  what little I have is truly epic: first mindblowing trailer for Asian totally epic historical action adventure DRAGON BLADE has been released for the movie which should storm the cinemas around the world next year possibly breaking all kinds of box office records over in China since it is opening there February 19th, the first day of the Lunar New Year's holidays! Directed by Daniel Lee the movie stars Jackie Chan as Huo An, the commander of the Protection Squad of the Western Regions during the legendary  Han Dynasty. International stars Adrien Brody and John Cusack are playing Roman soldiers in the film! 

ROMAN LEGIONS IN CHINA
With a record breaking budget of $65 million, this absolutely unique movie brings a magnificent mix of ancient Chinese warriors and Roman legions all packed in one epic film!  The story revolves around Huo An (Jackie Chan), the commander of the Protection Squad of the Western Regions, who was framed by evil forces and becomes enslaved. On the other hand, a Roman general escapes to China after rescuing the Prince. The heroic duo meet in the Western Desert and a thrilling story unfolds.


ADRIEN BRODY AND JOHN CUSACK
DRAGON BLADE is inspired by a missing legion of Roman soldiers that travelled into China in 48 BCE. John Cusack plays Lucius, a Roman general who led a legion of a 1,000 soldiers into Han Dynasty China. Adrien Brody will play Tiberius, who has assassinated Rome's Consul Crassus and chased after Lucius with a force of 100,000 soldiers. Jackie Chan's character teams up with Lucius to protect China's borders and sovereignty. The movie is inspired by the documented evidence of Roman descendants and Roman ruins in Liqian village in Northwest China's Gansu province during the Han Dynasty.

  4. Beautiful cinematography. Those long shots on the desert remind me of the sweeping shots filmed in Lawrence of Arabia which was a visual feast.

    As a bonus, I know nothing of this story so it will be great to learn something new.

    And then there's Brody......

    1. I do believe this one will be a visual spectacle, dear! The trailer also shows amazing costumes and armours too, the only thing that I didn't like in the trailer is Cusack's horrid American accent, it is so extreme!

    2. Seeing Cusack in the cast was a bit of a surprise to me. He doesn't strike me as being an athletic sort and he's dreadfully ugly.

    3. I've heard he is quite pompous at the sets, dear.

    4. Unless he's incredibly well hung, I've no idea what he's got to be pompous about :)

    5. it might be the exact opposite, dear :) Some men do compensate for lil' dick with big egos :)

    1. Not that I find it easy to take Jackie Chan seriously. I don't know why that is. A character flaw?

    2. nobody takes him seriously, not even his kids... one of them is a drug addict.....

  6. That looks epic! I would have never imagined Jackie Chan and Adrian Brody in the same movie.

  7. Looks worth the wait. I agree - the American accent is totally out of place.

    1. there are some actors who just don't fit epic movies due to their accents, like when Sam Worthington was Perseus with a strong Australian accent :) At least make it British because it sounds more classic

  8. I always hate the lull in movie news after the holidays. I am suffering a massive cold right now, but if I can get better by tomorrow, we are going to go see Into the Woods. Fingers crossed I don't sleep all day again like I did the past 2 days!

    1. Fingers crossed! For some reason INTO THE WOODS ain't doing overly good in the cinemas in USA and it seems that horrid Angelina and her UNBROKEN will get the second spot with THE HOBBIT again at Number one leaving WOODS on the third place. Such a shock. Why wouldn't people go see a nice musical with their families during holidays?

    2. Probably because we are sick of our families by now lol. Just kidding! Today I was worse than the other 2 days, so we didn't get to go. I am so bummed as I was looking forward to seeing that movie all week. Now I'll have to wait until next weekend :(

    3. Dezzz, give her a magic pill! And a hot cocoa. :)

    4. Theresa, that could be the reason :) How can you get so ill when you ate all that honey this month??? Did you just shoot the bottles and didn't eat it? :)
