A24 and DirecTV have today released a trailer and poster for the upcoming actioner Revenge of the Green Dragons. Check out the video in the player below and the poster in the gallery viewer at the bottom of this page.
Directed by Andrew Lau and Andrew Loo, Revenge of the Green Dragons is executive produced by Martin Scorsese and is based on Frederick Dannen’s New Yorker article that chronicled the underworld of Asian-American gang life in 80′s and 90′s New York City. The story follows two immigrant brothers Sonny (Justin Chon) and Steven (Kevin Wu) who survive the impoverished despair of New York in the 1980s by joining Chinatown gang “The Green Dragons.” The brothers quickly rise up the ranks, drawing the unwanted attention of hard-boiled city cops. After an ill- fated love affair pits Sonny against his own brother, he sets out for revenge on the very gang who made him who he is.
Also starring Harry Shum, Jr., Shuya Chang, Geoff Pierson, Billy Magnussen and Ray Liotta, Revenge of the Green Dragons will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. DirecTV will immediately follow with an exclusive 30-day window beginning September 11, followed by an A24 theatrical release in October.
