Amy Johnston struts her stuff in the official trailer to Lady Bloodfight, a project many fans have been waiting for.
The film, a rehash of the 1987 hit film Bloodsport, is one of many female-centric martial arts action films that have been churning as of late, including Fight Valley, Raze, and Female Fight Club.
Jane is a beautiful but troubled American girl backpacking her way through Hong Kong. When she successfully fends off three thugs trying to rob her, it draws the attention of Shu, a Wudang champion, who is impressed by her raw street fighting abilities. Shu recruits Jane and trains her to fight in the vicious, all-female, underground martial arts tournament known as “The Kumite.” After months of rigorous preparation, Jane is ready to face off against the deadliest female fighters in the world, including Ling, the apprentice of Shu’s nemesis, Wai, a Shaolin master. Other nefarious forces also lie in the shadows, taking Jane on a journey through the gritty underworld of Hong Kong as she fights to be named the best female fighter in the world.
The film co-stars the likes of Jet Tranter, Jenny Wu, and Rosemary Vandenbroucke. Kiss of the Dragon director Chris Nahon directed from a script from the film’s producer, Bey Logan. Xiong Xin-Xin, who had worked on The Musketeer and Double Team, choreographed the film’s fight sequences.
The film was officially released in Cambodia so far but other areas are pending releases.
