Warriors’ Gate is a thrilling martial arts fantasy adventure about a videogamer transported into an epic fighting world, from the minds behind Taken, The Fifth Element and The Karate Kid and we have an exclusive clip.
While working as a store assistant, teen gamer Jack Bronson stumbles across a curious antique casket, which turns out to be a time portal – and out of which comes Princess Su Lin, on the run from sword wielding warriors. Jack becomes friends with the princess and helps her adapt to modern life, until she is transported back to ancient China.
With the help of a time-travelling wizard, Jack goes through the portal in a bid to rescue Su Lin, who is about to be married against her will to the tyrannical barbarian King Arun.
Director Matthias Hoene deftly handles the big scale fight scenes, having had previous form wrangling bloodthirsty hordes with his horror hit Cockneys vs Zombies, while Besson and Kamen’s script is a pleasing mix of genres that harks back to 80s action-adventure crowd-pleasers. This is a fantastically entertaining big budget spectacle that Nerdly describes as “the perfect afternoon matinee movie”.
Warriors’ Gate – starring Dave Bautista – out 2nd October so check out the clip below:
