If I wanted to make up a funny fake movie, I can’t imagine it would sound much different than what Dragon Blade promises. Unless someone’s pulling my leg, the film is real and stars John Cusack, Adrien Brody, and Jackie Chan. Together at last.
Dragon Blade is about some Roman soldiers who go to China in 48 B.C. So yes, John Cusack is finally going to play a Roman soldier, the part we’ve been clambering for ever since seeing him Kickbox in Say Anything. But, you know, there’s more. Like Andrien Brody and Jackie Chan. This film doesn’t have to rely on the goofiness of John Cusack alone.
This artwork comes out of the American Film Market, which is happening right now. I’m sure once this film gets more official, they’ll put out less awful posters to promote it. But for now, I think you should take a brief moment out of your day and enjoy this.
If you live in China, you can see this film as early as February 19, 2015. Please report back.
