You think you know what’s going on in the world. You keep pretty good tabs on it and you are aware of what’s hip and in and fresh and happening, but then one day the world drops something on you that you never could have never imagined.
For me, that was today when I learned about Dragon Blade. What is Dragon Blade? So glad you asked. It’s a movie starring these three men, presented in screenshot form from the trailer (which we will get to):
That’s Jackie Chan, John Cusack and Adrien Brody, an all-time awkward trio. I mean, what the fuck is going on here? You’ve got an Asian action movie star, the dope from every rom-com ever and an artsy, indie dude all starring in an epic about a made up war?
Yea, that’s right, this movie is about a made up story, the time Rome tried to invade China (I think). Adrien Brody is in charge of the Romans, Jackie Chan the Chinese, and if you can figure out what John Cusack is doing there, please, please let me know, because I couldn’t even after repeated viewings.
Anyway, this looks terrible and hasn’t even been given a release date in the U.S. I, for one, can’t wait.
