Trailer For Martin Scorsese-Produced, Andrew Lau-Directed ‘Revenge of the Green Dragons’

Written by on August 13, 2014 


After remaking his drama Infernal Affairs with The Departed, Martin Scorsese came aboard to executive produce the latest film from Andrew Lau. Co-directed with Andrew Loo, Revenge of the Green Dragons will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival and word has already come in regarding distribution.

A24 and DirecTV will team once again, release the film that follows two best friends as they rise through the ranks of New York’s Chinese underworld in the 1980s. It’ll hit VOD on the latter platform on September 11th ahead of a theatrical release in October. The first trailer, poster, and stills have now dropped which reveal an intense-looking crime drama. Starring Ray Liotta, Justin Chon, Kevin Wu, Harry Shum Jr, Shuya Chang, and Geoff Pierson, check out the trailer and poster below.


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. From acclaimed Director Andrew Lau and Andrew Loo, and legendary Executive Producer Martin Scorsese comes a brilliant mix between a Hong Kong action film and a New York City crime thriller, portraying the never-before-told true story of “The Green Dragons”.
