Wu Xia (武俠) , the martial arts detective film that premiered in Cannes, will start its commercial career in China and unspool across Asia throughout July (see table, below).

The Peter Chan Ho-sun (陳可辛) directed film starring Donnie Yen (甄子丹),, Takeshi Kaneshiro (金城武) and Tang Wei (湯唯) will open on 4 July in China through investor and co-producer Stellar Mega Media, shortly before outings in Indonesia and Australia and New Zealand.The film was widely pre-sold last year within the region and to France’s TF1 on the strength of the director and cast. But it took until May this year for producer/distributor We Pictures/We Distribution to close a deal with The Weinstein Company for the rest of the world.
The story sees the quiet lives of a paper-maker (Yen) and his wife (Tang) disrupted when an unorthodox detective arrives in their village looking for clues into the surprising deaths of two bandits.
