Donnie Yen aficionados will be happy to find that their latest fix is arriving in Australian cinemas next Thursday, May 1st. Iceman is a remake of minor HK classic The Iceman Cometh (which starred Yuen Biao and Yuen Wah and had some really, really impressive stunt work).
Donnie stars as a Ming Dynasty soldier, frozen in the ice only to be revived in the present day, along with his equally-skilled evil foe (Wang Baoqiang, recently in Personal Tailor). The director is Law Wing-cheung, who’s best known for his work as an AD and editor on many of Johnnie To’s films.
Iceman opens in 3D on May 1st in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
Here’s the trailer:
