Hong Kong Legends in May

In a recent website update HKL released specs for their May 27th releases, both of which will retail for £19.99.

Zu: The Warriors from the Magic Mountain - Undoubtedly one of the most famous and influential movies ever to come out of the industry, Zu Warriors is the original inspiration for John Carpenter's big-budget smash-hit 'Big Trouble in Little China', and director Ang Lee borrowed heavily to re-create the stylish visuals for his multi-oscar winning epic, 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon'. Director John Carpenter: 'I was always a fan of kung fu movies. I had seen 'Five Fingers of Death' and the Bruce Lee movies in the Seventies. Zu (Warriors) gave me a lot of ideas with regard to depicting the nature of Chinese monsters and the supernatural in Big Trouble' Often referred to as the 'Steven Spielberg of Asia', producer/director Tsui Hark, is a prolific storyteller, with an unique visual style and keen sense of dramatic timing. His movies are always fresh, vivid and supremely entertaining, and he is one of the genre's best-known director/producers, with a CV, which is envy of almost everyone in the business.
