THE PAPERS TIGERS is coming to Blu-ray and DVD on June 22nd

Well Go USA
The Paper Tigers
Directed by Tran Quoc Bao
U.S./2020/11 minutes

Certified “Fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes and critically-acclaimed around the world, The Paper Tigers , an homage to feel-good martial arts films like The Karate Kid, debuts on Blu-ray™ and DVD June 22 from Well Go USA Entertainment. The audience-pleasing film shows how three dedicated kung fu disciples grew into washed-up, middle-aged men—now one kick away from pulling their hamstrings. But when their master is murdered, they must juggle their dead-end jobs, dad duties, and old grudges to avenge his death. The award-winning feature film debut of Director Tran Quoc Bao, The Paper Tigers stars Alain Uy (“Helstrom,” “True Detective”), Ron Yuan (Mulan, “Marco Polo”), and Mykel Shannon Jenkins (The Gods, Undisputed III: Redemption). The film is currently available to watch in theaters and on digital.

Following its world premiere at the Fantasia Film Festival, The Paper Tigers played numerous festivals around the world, winning the Audience Award for Best Narrative Film at the Boston Asian American Film Festival and the Grand Jury Prize for Best Feature Film at the Seattle Asian American Film Festival.

Bonus Content Includes Behind-the-Scenes Material, Deleted Scenes & Bloopers.

As teenagers, kung fu disciples Danny (Alain Uy), Hing (Ron Yuan) and Jim (Mykel Shannon Jenkins) were inseparable. Fast forward 25 years, and each has grown into a washed-up middle-aged man seemingly one kick away from pulling a hamstring—and not at all preoccupied with thoughts of martial arts or childhood best friends. But when their old master is murdered, the trio reunites, soon learning that avenging their sifu will require conquering old grudges (and a dangerous hitman still armed with ample knee cartilage) if they are to honorably defend his legacy.
