Nikkei Asian Review reports that the Shaw Brothers Holdings recently appointed media mogul Li Ruigang as chairman. Under the leadership of Li, Shaw Brothers plans to spend 1 billion yuan ($147 million) and to produce eight films next year, all in the hopes of reclaiming the company’s former glory.
The world famous Shaw Brothers dominated Hong Kong’s golden age of cinema in the 60s and 70s. Back when the late Run Run Shaw led the company, the studio produced an impressive oeuvre of martial arts classics such as The 36th Chamber of Shaolin (1978), Five Fingers of Death (1972), Come Drink With Me (1966), Killer Clans (1976), One-Armed Swordsman (1967), Return of the One-Armed Swordsman (1969) and many others. Stars like Ti Lung, David Chiang and Fu Sheng, as well as filmmakers like Chang Cheh, Chu Yuan and Lau Kar-leun become household names and global icons.
The company made famous by Sir Run Run Shaw was once a dominant force in Hong Kong and Asian cinema, but largely ceased film production in 1987. Today, however, the company holds a key 26% stake in Television Broadcasts (Tvb), Hong Kong’s leading free-to-air TV broadcaster and owner of one of the largest Chinese language rights catalogs in the world.
Li has been appointed chairman and non-executive director of Shaw. He is joined by Jiang Wei, MD of the Cmc-owned mainland Chinese film distributor Gravity Pictures, who is appointed an executive director of Shaw. Also joining is Thomas Hui, president, chief strategy officer and executive director of Cmc Holdings, who will be an non-executive director.
They replace chairman Allan Yap, and directors Gu Jiong and Wong Ka Ching,

A 4K restoration screening of Romero's The Crazies will also take place, as well as a live performance by composer Fabio Frizzi and his orchestra during a showing of The Beyond: Composer's Cut.
Fantastic Fest's final wave of programming has several big treats in store for horror comedy fans, as Bruce Campbell will be in attendance for screenings of the first two episodes of Ash vs Evil Dead Season 2 (ahead of the first season's October 2nd premiere on Starz).
Another WolfCop, the sequel to 2014's WolfCop, will make its world premiere, and a special screening of the first episode of HBO's Westworld series will also take place.
The creature feature Colossal will be shown as the festival's closing film, and A Monster Calls and The Autopsy of Jane Doe are also scheduled to screen. For full details, we have the official press release below. Which film are you
It starts with a Classic
The season will kick off with a Gordon Liu classic “The 36th Chamber of Shaolin”, then will continue for a further 3 Friday nights which will include Shaw Brothers classics such as King Boxer (Lo Lieh), Come Drink With Me (Cheng Pei-Pei) and The One Armed Swordsman (Wang Yu).
I have to say, they have chosen some great movies and anyone who is a fan of Kung Fu and Wu Xia cinema need to watch these and record then watch again. The second season (Which stars in April) will include The Five Deadly Venoms and The 8 Diagram Pole Fighter, so far.
Also every movie will play with original language and English Subtitles.
The 36th Chamber of Shaolin
You know, that staple of feel-good, fist-pumping, sweat-exuding movies, especially from the aerobicized '80s, that shows rapid-cut clips of the star getting in shape or mastering some arcane fighting technique, usually set to some inspirational, synth-heavy anthem.
By the end of that decade, the training montage had become such an overblown cliché that it fell out of favor, which is why we cherish the few new ones that come along and relish the old ones that still make us feel like slackers. So cue up Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger," raise a glass of raw eggs, and drink a toast to the best training montages ever.

The sequel picks up long after the events of The Man with the Iron Fists, where Thaddeus is found near death, literally drifting past a 19th Century village where he is saved by a miner's (Dustin Nguyen) family. As he heals from his wounds, Thaddeus expresses his desire to find peace, but it becomes quickly clear

As he explained in a Q&A with Elvis Mitchell, the RZA’s formative experiences with the Gordon Liu-starrer came in its dubbed, heavily expurgated form. Yet the film not only provided the Wu-Tang with its debut album title and a plethora of memorable (English language) dialogue samples, it also influenced the group’s guiding philosophy.
“I saw it when I was nine years old on Channel 5, and then again when I was 13 or 14 on 42nd St.,” RZA said, noting that the film’s story of the struggle between
Under the agreement, El Rey Network will offer subscribers titles from the Shaw Brothers library such as The 36th Chamber Of Shaolin, The Sword Of Swords, The Eight Diagram Pole Fighter and The Flying Guillotine.
The films, which will be presented with English subtitles and English dubbed tracks, will screen throughout the network’s schedule and during its monthly Saturday kungfu marathon. The next marathon will air March 1 and features The One Armed Swordsman trilogy.
Robert Rodriguez said: “Long before El Rey Network was born, I had many of the Shaw Brothers films on my playlist at home. It was a hard drive that had my hit list of personal favorites and certainly these titles were among the best in kung-fu films.
“They are action-packed and still have cult status among fans of the
Born in 1907, Shaw started his career working with his brothers at their jointly-owned Tianyi Film Company, later moving to Singapore to launch distribution and theatre networks across South-East Asia. He established Shaw Brothers Studios in Hong Kong in 1957.
The studio, which attracted top talent and was renowned for the high technical standards at its Movietown filmmaking base, produced more than 1,000 films, including classics such as The One Armed Swordsman, The 36th Chamber Of Shaolin, Come Drink With Me, The Kingdom And The Beauty and Five Deadly Venoms. Shaw was also a producer on Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner.
The bulk of the Shaw Brothers library was acquired by Hong Kong-based Celestial Pictures in 2000, which digitally remastered and re-released many of the titles. The library continues to be mined by both Western and Asian companies for remake
Before landing the coveted role of Darth Maul in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace and Toad in X-Men, Ray Park began his martial arts training in Shaolin Kung Fu and wushu at the young age of seven years old, competing in international tournaments by the time he was a teenager. This year, he reprised his role as the silent but deadly Snake Eyes in the sequel to 2009's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, G.I. Joe Retaliation. I recently had the chance to speak with the actor for the Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, and DVD release on July 30. Here's what he had to say about that amazing mountainside fight sequence, working with director Jon M. Chu, and much more.
I have to imagine that, with all of your martial arts training,
