Buzz, Film

Trinity CineAsia proudly presents action-packed crime epic, Twilight of the Warriors: Walled In, coming to UK and Irish cinemas from 24 May, following its Midnight Screening at the Cannes Film Festival.

Already a box office hit in Hong Kong, this visually striking, visceral and violent crime film is one of the most eagerly awaited action features of the year. Boasting an all-star cast of both veteran stars and rising talent, it’s helmed by award-winning director Soi Cheang (Mad Fate).

From award-winning director Soi Cheang (Mad Fate, Limbo, Dog Bite Dog), this gritty, fight-filled epic is adapted from the cult Manga series “City of Darkness” by Andy Seto and based on the novel by Yuyi.

Set in British colonial Hong Kong in the 1980’s, Twilight of the Warriors: Walled In follows a troubled youth as he accidentally enters the infamous Kowloon Walled City – a dangerous Chinese enclave ripe with gang crime and corruption. He soon discovers order amidst the chaos, and gains life lessons from the inhabitants as they resist a villainous invasion.

With a production budget of $40 million USD, it is one of the most expensive Hong Kong films ever made. The excellent ensemble cast brings together rising stars Raymond Lam (Detective vs Sleuths), Terrance Lau (Anita), Tony Wu (The Lyricist Wannabe) and German Cheung (Raging Fire), with screen veterans Louis Koo (Paradox), Philip Ng (Birth of the Dragon), Aaron Kwok (Port of Call) and Sammo Hung (Ip Man 2), and action design by stunt coordinator Kenji Tanigaki (Raging Fire, Sakra). The atmospheric score is created by legendary soundtrack composer Kenji Kawai (Ghost in the Shell, Ip Man franchise).

Twilight of the Warriors: Walled In arrives hot-on-the-heels of its coveted Midnight Screening at Cannes Film Festival 2024, with a recent Best Director win for Soi Cheang and Lifetime Achievement Award for Sammo Hung at the 2024 Hong Kong Film Awards.
