SEVEN WARRIORS coming on Blu-ray and DVD April 22nd

Well Go USA
In the Chaotic Era, They Stand and Fight

The Modern Retelling of Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai
Debuts on Blu-ray™ & DVD April 22nd

Legendary actor, stuntman, fight choreographer and pioneer of Hong Kong’s New Wave Movement, Sammo Hung (Ip Man 2: Legend of the Grandmaster) co-directs (with Terry Tong) and stars in the action-packed martial arts drama SEVEN WARRIORS, debuting on Blu-ray™ and DVD April 22nd from Well Go USA Entertainment.

A rousing modern retelling of Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai, the film depicts the story of terrified Chinese villagers who recruit brave mercenary warriors to defend against marauding Japanese invaders. Adam Cheng (The Legend, Saving General Yang), Max Mok (Once Upon a Time in China series), Jacky Cheung (Bodyguards and Assassins), Lam Kwok-Bun, Wu Ma (White Vengeance), Shing Fui-On (A Better Tomorrow) and Tony Leung Chiu-Wai (Hero, Infernal Affairs) are the warriors, with Lo Lieh (Five Fingers of Death, Supercop) as their sworn enemy…who was once their comrade-in-arms.

Synopsis: The film is set in China's Warlord Era, where desperate soldiers have become thieves and bandits, leaving towns – and lives – in ruins. The villagers of Guangxi rise up, hiring seven warriors to take up arms against the marauders and save their home.

SEVEN WARRIORS has a runtime of approximately 94 minutes and is not rated.
