Trailer: Donnie Yen’s Iceman released on Netflix UK on the same day as US cinemas
James R | On 19, Sep 2014
Donnie Yen’s Iceman has been released on Netflix UK today, the same day as it is released in US cinemas.
Directed by Law Wing-cheung, the film is a remake of 1979 flick The Iceman Cometh. The frankly insane plot sees the martial arts legend play the titular hero, a 17th century Ming warrior who is frozen in time along with his enemy to continue battling in modern day Hong Kong.
The movie was released in Chinese cinemas in April – to a decidedly lukewarm response – and has only just made its way to the US. While it is only receiving a limited theatrical release, though, it is getting an international day-and-date digital release, arriving exclusively on Netflix today (well, technically, late last night) over there as well in the UK.
See above for the trailer.
