RELEASE DATE: June 6, 2017
Hong Kong’s legendary action director, Ringo Lam, is back at it with Sky on Fire (read our review) his follow up to his 2015 “comeback” film, Wild City. Well Go USA is releasing it digitally on May 9, then on Blu-ray & DVD on June 6, 2017.
In this driving, non-stop action thriller, the chief security officer at a top-secret medical facility (Daniel Wu) finds himself caught in an explosive battle when a young thief and his accomplices steal a groundbreaking curative medicine. After discovering the true origins of the medicine, the officer must decide who he can trust to protect the cure from falling into the wrong hands and prevent an all-out war from bringing the city to its knees.
Wu (That Demon Within), the film’s leading star, is describing it as City on Fire 2: “I said yes without even reading the script because John Woo, Ringo Lam and Tsui Hark are the guys who have initiated this new wave of classic Hong Kong and I always wanted to work with them. The movie is called Sky on Fire, but it could just as well be described as City on Fire 2,” said Wu, in reference to Lam’s seminal 1987 classic, City on Fire.
