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!
