WELL GO USA Releases in.. 35mm?!

Recently Well Go USA, the Texas based distribution company, announced that they will be releasing THE TAKING OF TIGER MOUNTAIN, the new film by Hong Kong director Tsui Hark (Director of THE BLADE, PEKING OPERA BLUES and YOUNG DETECTIVE DEE: RISE OF THE SEA DRAGON) on home video in the US and Canada. This is exciting news, as going by the trailer it looks to be a return to form for the filmmaker. Based on a real incident from 1946, the boisterous, colorful film tells the tale of an undercover agent working his way into a gang of bandits. A great cast, over-the-top action scenes, and plenty of machinegun fire promise a good time. As an added bonus, the distributors will also be releasing the film theatrically in select theaters for a limited engagement starting January 2nd. That’s just one week after the film’s Hong Kong premiere!

What may not be common knowledge is that Well Go have been doing this with many of their film acquisitions since March 2013. Other Asian films that they’ve put out on DVD and Blu-ray, among them NEW WORLD, DRUG WAR, THE SUSPECT, ON THE JOB, IP MAN: THE FINAL FIGHT, SPECIAL I.D., RIGOR MORTIS, KUNDO, and ICEMAN, were also given theatrical screenings. This is arguably the best way to see these films, and I encourage those that live in the cities where they are screened to get yourselves in there to see them.
