This time around Ping occupies the Director's chair for his latest film "True Legend" starring Man Cheuk Chiu, Andy On, Michelle Yeoh, Jay Chou and David Carradine. The nearly two hour wall to wall action epic opens at the Reading Gaslamp Cinemas this Friday (06/10).

Takashi Miike's "13 Assassins" will soldier on for another week all thanks to a strong box office this past weekend at Landmark's Ken Cinema. The movie will now transfer to Landmark's La Jolla Village property starting this Friday (06/10). Unfortunately, on the other side of the spectrum "Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives" will end its run at the Reading Gaslamp on Thursday (06/09).

  1. If you liked Chiu Man Cheuk in this movie, you should check out his earlier stuff. Hero of the Times is what I remember him from. He plays a Chinese Martial Arts hero, Fong Sai Yuk, and the fighting style is very much like that of Jet Li's Wong Fei Hong in Once Upon a Time in China. Check it out!
