Courtesy of our friends at Well Go USA, we have 4 copies of their upcoming release of “Saving General Yang!”
Based on the ancient Chinese folklore of the seven brothers who fought against all odds to rescue their legendary warrior father, the acclaimed action drama SAVING GENERAL YANG (忠烈杨家将, Zhong Lie Yang Jia Jiang, 2013) debuts on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital December 10th from Well Go USA Entertainment.
The international box office hit is an epic tale about the renowned Song Dynasty’s military defense headed by the clan of Yang against a nomadic Northern nation. Head of the Yang clan is the charismatic old general, Yang Ye (Adam Cheng), who is also the father of seven sons. The seven young men possess differing temperaments, and are each a master of their own kung fu discipline.
In AD 986, the Khitan army takes its revenge for a past massacre, abducting General Yang and leaving his wife and sons to rescue him — and fall into their deadly trap. Led by the first son (Ekin Cheng), the seven — two of whom have never seen combat — set out with a small band of fighters to face an army of thousands, brave the treacherous Wolf Mountain, face the nemesis of their shared history, and find the way back alive — all to bring their father home.
Directed by Ronny Yu (THE BRIDE WITH WHITE HAIR, FEARLESS, BRIDE OF CHUCKY), SAVING GENERAL YANG stars Adam Cheng (DRUNKEN MASTER KILLER, THE LEGEND), Ekin Cheng (STORM WARRIORS, TREASURE HUNT), newcomer Yu Bo, Vic Chau (NEW PERFECT TWO), Li Chen (AFTERSHOCK), Raymond Lam (THE EMPEROR AND THE WHITE SNAKE, TTHE JADE AND THE PEARL), Wu Chun (14 BLADES), newcomer Fu Xin Bo, Xu Fan (BACK TO 1942, AFTERSHOCK), and newcomer Ady An. The film had its world premiere at the 2013 Hong Kong International Film Festival.
SAVING GENERAL YANG has a runtime of approximately 102 minutes and is not rated. Bonus materials include a behind-the-scenes featurette “The Making of SAVING GENERAL YANG,” plus interviews with the cast and crew.
