The wee hours of Sunday evening left fans waiting up for a trailer to director Pema D. Gakyil’s new action adventure, The Man From Kathmandu. Better late than never as they say, now that it’s arrived as did poster both hailing the return of actor and martial arts star, Jose Manuel (El Testigo).

Fleeing to Kathmandu in hopes of reuniting with his father to join the war in Syria, he instead finds himself in the throes of an evil criminal organization in its stranglehold over his grandfather’s camp for migrant refugees trying to flee the war.

Production hails from Tri-City Pictures and Clear Mirror Pictures with a release date likely bound for this year and with further dates to come per more of the usual watching and waiting for global film market updates and such.
