    culturalgutter:

    Flyer from the late Kung Fu Fridays film program in Toronto. Strangely enough the date for this screening coincides with tonight’s Drive-In Mob Chow Yun-Fat Heroic Bloodshed Double Feature!

    Kung Fu Fridays was programmed by current Toronto International Film Festival programmer and ActionFest Director, Colin Geddes. This particular flyer is from when the series was in its nomadic years before it found its home at the Royal. And, this particular screening was held in a theater that mostly showed porn at the time, leading passersby to wonder at the long line outside and down the block.

    (from Carol Borden’s collection of ephemera)

    Twitch is reporting that Let The Bullets Fly has already been picked up for an American remake. The film by Jiang Wen barely opened before an American company bought the rights, at least according to the film’s marketing director. Twitch sounds a little suspicious.

    In the meantime,…

    Very excited and wondering if it’ll take Aftershock at the box office.
