‘Revenge Of The Green Dragons’ Trailer

In the vein of crime classics like MEAN STREETS and INFERNAL AFFAIRS, REVENGE OF THE GREEN DRAGONS follows two immigrant brothers Sonny (Justin Chon) and Steven (Kevin Wu) who survive the impoverished despair of New York in the 1980s by joining Chinatown gang “The Green Dragons”. The brothers quickly rise up the ranks, drawing the unwanted attention of hard-boiled city cops. After an ill- fated love affair pits Sonny against his own brother, he sets out for revenge on the very gang who made him who he is. From acclaimed Director Andrew Lau and Andrew Loo, and legendary Executive Producer Martin Scorsese comes a brilliant mix between a Hong Kong action film and a New York City crime thriller, portraying the never-before-told true story of “The Green Dragons”.

REVENGE OF THE GREEN DRAGONS is based on  Frederick Dannen’s  electric New Yorker article that chronicled the underworld of Asian-American gang life in 80’s and 90’s New York City. Lau & Loo co-directed the film off a script penned by Michael DiJiacomo and Loo. The film, stars Justin Chon (TWILIGHT: BREAKING DAWN), Kevin Wu, Harry Shum, Jr. (GLEE and seen in the upcoming CROUCHING TIGER HIDDEN DRAGON II: THE GREEN DESTINY), Shuya Chang (CHINESE PUZZLE), with Geoff Pierson (J. EDGAR), Billy Magnussen (seen in the upcoming INTO THE WOODS) and Ray Liotta.

The film also reunites Lau with Martin Scorsese, who came on-board as an Executive Producer on the film. Scorsese previously won an Academy Award © for THE DEPARTED, a remake of Lau’s INFERNAL AFFAIRS.

This movie will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.  DirecTV will immediately follow with an exclusive 30-day window beginning September 11, followed by an A24 theatrical release in October.

International Trailer for The Commuter

This is actually a better trailer than the first one… right up until the crappy CG finale which looks like the climax of the film too. So now we don’t need to bother watching it when it comes out. Plot: In the midst...
