The trailer and poster have been released for the Martin Scorsese-produced film Revenge of the Green Dragons. The movie was directed by Andrew Lau and Andrew Loo, and it's based on a New Yorker article by Frederick Dannen's that chronicled the underworld of Asian-American gang life in 80's and 90's New York City.
The story 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."
The movie will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. DirecTV will immediately follow with an exclusive 30-day window beginning September 11th, followed by an A24 theatrical release in October. The movie also stars Harry Shum, Jr., Shuya Chang, Geoff Pierson, Billy Magnussen, and Ray Liotta.
