The living martial arts legend that is Jackie Chan makes his long awaited return to the big screen when DRAGON BLADE is released at cinemas and on demand from January 1st, 2016, courtesy of Signature Entertainment.
Two thousand years ago, a mysterious legion of extremely fearsome warriors galloped along the famous Silk Road. Dressed in exquisitely carved amour, the legion used weapons and battle formations that had never been seen in China.
The soldiers are part of a Roman legion led by General Lucius (John Cusack; Being John Malkovich, High Fidelity), marching east to protect Publius, the youngest son of Consul Crassus, from his vicious brother Tiberius (Adrien Brody; The Pianist, The Grand Budapest Hotel). It is publicly known that Tiberius had assassinated his father and blinded his own brother, so Lucius rescues Pubilus and heads east.
After becoming lost in the desert they arrive at Wild Geese Gate, where Lucius meets Huo An (Jackie Chan; Rush Hour, Drunken Master), the Commander of the Silk Road Protection Squad of the Western Region. The two men – who have each been framed for treason – earn each other’s respect and form an allegiance as
Tiberius eventually arrives with his army, demanding Huo An hand over Lucius and Publius or witness his forces annex China. To protect his country and to clear his name of treason, Huo An gathers all the allies of China to unite together and take on Tiberius in an epic battle that will be remembered forever…
A soaring epic where east brutally meets west, DRAGON BLADE unites some of Hollywood’s most respected acting talent with Jackie Chan’s inimitable style and energy to unforgettable effect, delivering the New Year’s first essential appointment for action epic fans everywhere.
