REVENGE OF THE GREEN DRAGONS: Watch The Trailer For Andrew Lau's English Language Gang Flick Now!
It would appear that the relationship struck between Martin Scorsese and Andrew Lau when Scorsese directed The Departed - an adaptation of Lau's Infernal Affairs - continues to bear fruit. Scorsese is now serving as executive producer on Lau's latest film, this one a violent crime drama set amongst the Chinese immigrant population in 1989 New York City titled Revenge Of The Green Dragons.

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".

The first trailer is freshly arrived and looking slick. Take a look below.

da hell? did I just see a mullet-ed kevjumba? I dunno now..

Looks like the movie will pass the time nicely, it's now on my list to see.

First of all, Kevjumba and the Drunk Asian Dude from 21 and over are the two leads to carry this film?With a gangster movie that involves Scorsese and fucking Ray Liotta? God, I hope they can pull this off. I take my gangster movies very seriously.

Marcel SamsonAugust 14, 2014 1:45 PM

Haha, my thoughts also. He seems to be quite absent from the trailer, even though the synopsis pegs him as one of the leads? Hope he can rise to the occasion. I love my fair share of silly youtube fun with the likes of Kevjumba and others, but never quite saw any of them as 'real' actors. Prove me wrong, mr Wu!

HowardAugust 14, 2014 3:57 PM

He also played the token Asian in Twilight. So now you have mullet kevjumba, Twilight token Asian, and the Asian dancer from Glee. You know the pool of Asian American actors is small when you pick these 3.

LOL, I fucking love Ray Liotta so much. Fuck it I'm watching Goodfellas again, yes!!!!!!

Bruce WayneAugust 14, 2014 7:29 PM

I really and truly hope this movie can be at least somewhat decent... I know it's a business and nothing personal, but I'd like more Asian leads

Marcel SamsonAugust 15, 2014 6:23 AM

Uhm, what now? The guys in the trailer are not Asian then? Probably they're wearing make up then....*facepalm*

Todd BrownAugust 15, 2014 10:56 AM

You're misunderstanding his point. Obviously this has Asian leads. The point is that if it is successful then more Hollywood producers will be inclined to cast Asians as they see there's business in doing so while if it's a failure they'll point to it as an example of why casting Asian is too risky and they should just keep everything white.

And Bruce is absolutely correct on this point.

Groan, looks really formulaic. Also, 2nd generation Chinese speak Chinese with one another as a matter of pride.
