The Man with the Iron Fists in April
From the press release…
Presented by Quentin Tarantino, the blood-soaked, bone-snapping action-adventure The Man with the Iron Fists will be released on Limited Edition Blu-ray Steelbook, Blu-ray and DVD on 1st April 2013.
Inspired by the kung-fu classics of the 1970s and 80s as interpreted by Tarantino’s long time collaborators RZA (Wu Tang Clan) and Eli Roth (Hostel), The Man with the Iron Fists features a kick ass cast including Lucy Liu (Kill Bill), Russell Crowe (Gladiator) and WWF’s Dave Bautista. The film tells the epic story of warriors, assassins and a lone outsider hero in nineteenth-century China who must unite to destroy a traitor in their midst who would lay waste to them all for the sake of a chest of gold bullions.
Isolated in rural Jungle Village, the town’s blacksmith (RZA) works tirelessly supplying the warring local clans with weaponry in order to pay for his and his lover’s (Jamie Chung, Sucker Punch) passage out of the desolate region. When Gold Lion, leader of the lion clan is brutally murdered the violence escalates to a whole new level and the town is inundated by dangerous strangers including the infamous Brass Body (Bautista), foreigner Jack Knife (Crowe) and the deadly Poison Dagger, all eager to join the fight and lay their hands on the governor’s gold.
Featuring awe-inspiring martial arts fight sequences, a gritty, urban soundtrack featuring the Wu Tang Clan, Black Keys and Kanye West and gruesome special effects The Man with the Iron Fists on Blu-ray and DVD packs a punch! Blu-ray exclusive special features include an on-set featurette with RZA.
