On June 14, 2016, Shout! Factory will release the Asian action film Bodyguards and Assassins, for the first time on Blu-ray in the U.S.  Directed by Teddy Chen (Kung Fu Killer, The Accidental Spy), this release comes com­plete with brand new bonus fea­tures, includ­ing behind-the-sce­nes fea­turettes and extend­ed inter­views with cast and crew.

Bod&As-bluDonnie Yen (the upcom­ing Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) stars in this grip­ping mar­tial arts block­buster set in the bustling metrop­o­lis of Hong Kong in 1905. The rev­o­lu­tion­ary move­ment has spread through­out China, but the cor­rupt Qing dynasty will do any­thing to hold onto its pow­er. As Chinese rev­o­lu­tion­ary hero Sun Yat-Sen pre­pares for a his­toric meet­ing that will shape the future of the coun­try, a mot­ley crew of men and wom­en are entrust­ed to pro­tect him from a group of dead­ly assas­sins who will stop at noth­ing to kill him.

Winner of eight Hong Kong Film Awards includ­ing Best Film, and fea­tur­ing an hour-long bat­tle sequence unlike any­thing attempt­ed ever before, it’s a piv­otal action epic that’s being hailed as “a sat­is­fy­ing mix of pol­i­tics, per­son­al sac­ri­fice and death-or-glo­ry com­bat” (Richard Kuipers, Variety).
