It’s been a long time since the last update on Journey to China: The Mystery of the Iron Mask – now titled simply The Iron Mask – but the film is set for release in the UK this coming April and so we now have our first trailer. The highlight of the footage is Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jackie Chan coming to blows in the Russian-Chinese fantasy sequel to The Forbidden Kingdom. Watch the trailer below…
The IRon Mask stars Jason Flemyng (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) and Charles Dance (Game of Thrones), reprising their roles from The Forbidden Kingdom as Jonathan Green and Lord Dudley with the late Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner) making a posthumous appearance. It was directed by Oleg Stepchenko from a script he wrote with Alexy Petrukhin ad Dmitri Palees.
The English traveler Jonathan Green (Jason Flemyng) receives from Peter the Great an order to map the Russian Far East. Once again he sets out for a long journey full of incredible adventures that will eventually lead him to China.
The cartographer will unexpectedly face a lot of breathtaking discoveries, encounter bizarre creatures, meet with Chinese princesses, and confront deadly martial arts masters and even the king of all dragons – the Dragon King. What could be more dangerous than meeting eye to eye with Viy, except doing it again? What would be stronger this time – a staunch skepticism of the scientist or the old black magic that has seized power of Eastern lands?
The Iron Mask will be released on April 10th.
