Just Toronto Film Festival and now we get an announcement that A24 has acquired domestic distribution rights and immediately following the Toronto premiere, the will have an exclusive premiere on DirecTV for 30-days, beginning September 11. A24 will follow that up with an October release.
Martin Scorsese serves as executive producer on the film that’s said to be in the vein of crime classics like Mean Streets and Infernal Affairs. 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.
Shuya Chang, Geoff Pierson, Billy Magnussen and Ray Liotta co-star.
A24 has released the first trailer and poster for the film, both featured below, along with one more official picture.
