The first trailer and poster for directors Andrew Lau and Andrew Loo’s REVENGE OF THE GREEN DRAGONS have landed and you should definitely check them out. Martin Scorsese lends his executive producing power to the film which is directly inspired by tales of ’80s and ’90s Asian-American gangs in New York. Scorsese finally got his long overdue Best Director Oscar when he adapted Lau’s INFERNAL AFFAIRS into THE DEPARTED; so it’s nice to see them working together for this great looking movie.

Here’s the official synopsis:

In the vein of crime classics like MEAN STREETS and INFERNAL AFFAIRS, REVENGE OF THE GREEN DRAGONS 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.

A great Hong Kong action film mixed with a crime riddled New York City thriller, what’s not to love? The film also stars Harry Shum Jr., Shuya Chang, Geoff Pierson, Billy Magnussen, and the always great Ray Liotta.

REVENGE OF THE GREEN DRAGONS will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival and will be available exclusively on DirecTV starting September 11th 2014, followed by a theatrical release in October 2014.

1. That cover song is very Scorsese inspired. I can see why he's a producer. It's got his dna.

2. I am just glad in today's landscape and state of film that there is still a market for gritty crime dramas.

3. Crime is by far my favorite genre of film.

4. This gives me hope that one day I'll have an audience for my very own crime drama one day.

5. This looks very inspired and a little different. With Good Ol' Marty's stamp on there I'm hoping it's good and not some below average red

Ray Liotta, along with John Malkovich and Willem DaFoe are few of the actors that truly scare the shit out of me when they play villainous roles. All three are so great at playing bad guys and are intimidating as hell.

It looks like Ray Liotta is the good guy here?

I like the idea of Scorsese and Lau working together on a movie, with Marty letting Lau play in his sandbox (70s NYC). Slightly surprised on the casting, with the kid who played the wasted Asian, Jeff Chang from the movie 21 & Over as a main character, but here's hoping it works. Wish I was at TIFF this year to check this one out early.
