Jackie Chan action classic “Dragons Forever” is getting a new UK Steelbook release in October
Those awesome folks at 88 Films are bringing us this great looking new steelbook release of the Dragons Forever, starring the action superstar trio of Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao.
The two disc set will include a slipcase and poster. Extras are TBC, but we’d expect them to match the absolutely jam-packed previously released, non-steelbook release – details below.
Pre-orders are live now and we’ll add more links as we get them. Thanks to reader Ian for the heads up!
The Three Brothers are back! After Project A and Wheels on Meals, the most popular action stars in Hong Kong – that’s Sammo Hung, Yuen Biao and the superstar Jackie Chan himself – join forces again for another uproarious adventure.
This time, the heroic trio are facing down a crooked industrialist and an organised crime syndicate bring drugs into Hong Kong. Can they stop it? Well, obviously – the real question is how crazy things get while they do it!
This was the last time the classic team performed together and it’s one of their best outings, filled with fights, stunts and – yup, you guessed it – more fights. 88 Films are proud to present the UK blu-ray premiere of this action masterpiece remastered and restored in 4K.
