Cannes: Ringo Lam’s ‘Wild City’ Falls to WellGo USA

12 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

WellGo USA has acquired North American rights to “Wild City,” a noir gangster thriller by Ringo Lam.

Lam is one of Hong Kong’s most celebrated directors, but has not headlined a feature in more than seven years.

WellGo, which earlier this week pounced on Hou Hsiao-hsien’s Cannes competition film “The Assassin,” says that it will give “City” a stateside release to coincide with its July 31 release in China and Hong Kong.

The big-budget action movie is a tale of gangsters, greed and betrayal. The cast is headed by Louis Koo Tin-lok, Shawn Yue Man-lok, Tong Liya and Joseph Chang.

International sales are by Distribution Workshop. Local release in greater China is by Bravos Entertainment, the distribution, marketing and sales entity formed a year ago by former Media Asia executive Ricky Tse with backing from mainland Chinese financier Sun Entertainment.

The film is co-produced by Hong Kong’s »

Ringo Lam, one of Hong Kong’s most celebrated directors, is now in post-production on “Wild City,” his first film in seven years.

Ranking Jean-Claude Van Damme’s Boss Fights

16 January 2015 1:34 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

One of the most important parts of any action movie made before the new millennium is the so-called “boss fight.” For the uninitiated, a boss fight is the ultimate showdown between good and evil. After all the henchmen and various other obstacles-with-limbs have been cleared away, it’s time to get it on with the Big Bad.

Ever since Bruce Lee fought Han and his iron claw in that hall of mirrors at the end of Enter The Dragon, the merit of any martial arts film has largely been judged by its main adversary. And Jean-Claude Van Damme’s filmography is no different.

Running the gamut from muscle-bound pulverisers with nothing between the ears to corrupt businessmen with a penchant for picking the absolute worst Belgium to mess with, Van Damme has spin kicked just about every type of bad guy imaginable.
