DD/CA: Fist of Legend art (+ Future CA Release)

FistofLegendwebWe spoke about this a few weeks back the partnership between Dragon Dynasty & Cine-Asia and this is the first sign that the wheels are in motion. The artwork for Fist of Legend: 2 Disc Ultimate Edition seems to be first on the cards. We don't have any idea on what special features it will have, maybe it will have the same features from the Dragon Dynasty release. When looking for details about the release on Cine-Asia website, I noticed that Cine-Asia have got the rights and are planning on releasing; Connected (Louis Koo), The Raging Phoenix (the next movie from Chocolate star Jeeja Yanin) and The Vanquisher, Vanquisher was brought to our attention upon Mike Banners discussion on POF56. With these releases lined up, it's easy to say that Cine-Asia really is the leading company when it comes to releasing Asian Cinema WORLDWIDE!

Dragon Dynasty UK not dead yet! (updated)

Looks dead, but it's not...yeah I'm suprised too

Remember when Hong Kong Legends closed down and set up over there in the states with the title "Dragon Dynasty". Dragon Dynasty was the brains behind Hong Kong Legends combined with The Weinstein Company and started re-releasing all the Jet Li flicks as well as half a dozen Shaw Brother flicks and a bunch of recent triad thrillers etc.

Caught up are we? Click bellow to read the full article

Now with the UK Asian Cinema DVD Market dwindling Dragon Dynasty reached out to Momentum Pictures to release  some of their US Shaw Brother releases, so we got The 36th Chamber of Shaolin and King Boxer. That was it, we then heard sweet nothings since then.

So after receiving a message via FaceBook, Dragon Dynasty have struck a deal with Cine-Asia, Cine-Asia are responsable for releasing some great DVDs/Blu-Rays of Asian Cinema hits more recently; Ip Man, House of Fury, The Myth AND Kung Fu Dunk! The Quote;

Continuing its passion and dedication to provide outstanding Asian Cinema to British audiences, Cine-Asia is proud to announce the signing of a distribution deal with The Weinstein Company: owner of Dragon Dynasty.

Check out the cine-asia website for more on this fantastic news and titles heading the UK's way!

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!

[UPDATE 26/11/09]

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!
