So yeah that could be cool, but are we just going to get a few more Shaw Brother titles or are we getting all these re-releases of Jet Li movies? Anyway, what do you think? post a comment f*cker!
As mentioned in our comments by Kuksoolrob Cine-Asia have posted details on what we can expect from CA/DD;
Under the agreement, Cine-Asia will distribute world-acclaimed Jet Li titles Fist of Legend, Tai Chi Master and The Legend (of Fong Sai-yuk), as well as contemporary classics Invisible Target, Kill Zone (SPL) and Jackie Chan’s much-loved action-comedy, Robin-B-Hood.
Which is awesome, Importing Dragon Dynasty movies isn’t cheap, but now that we’re getting Tai Chi Master instead of Twin Warriors, Hur-fucking-ray!
