Trinity CineAsia is set to unleash its latest cinematic spectacle, "Twilight of the Warriors: Walled In," captivating audiences across the UK and Ireland from May 24th, following its electrifying Midnight Screening debut at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival.

Already heralded as a sensation in Hong Kong, this adrenaline-charged crime epic promises an unyielding fusion of action, intrigue, and stunning visuals. Directed by the esteemed Soi Cheang, renowned for his gripping narratives in films such as "Mad Fate," the movie is poised to enrapture viewers with its raw intensity.

Lauded by the South China Morning Post as "an exhilarating display of bone-crunching violence," the film transports audiences to the gritty underbelly of 1980s British colonial Hong Kong. Drawing inspiration from the revered Manga series "City of Darkness" by Andy Seto and Yuyi's novel, it unfurls the gripping tale of a troubled youth thrust into the heart of the infamous Kowloon Walled City—a treacherous labyrinth pulsating with crime and corruption.

With an astounding production budget of $40 million USD, "Twilight of the Warriors: Walled In" stands as a testament to ambitious filmmaking. Featuring a stellar ensemble cast, the movie seamlessly blends industry veterans like Louis Koo, Philip Ng, Aaron Kwok, and Sammo Hung with emerging talents including Raymond Lam, Terrance Lau, Tony Wu, and German Cheung.

The heart-pounding action sequences, choreographed by stunt coordinator Kenji Tanigaki of "Raging Fire" acclaim, promise to deliver a visceral cinematic experience, while the evocative score by legendary composer Kenji Kawai sets the perfect backdrop for the unfolding drama.

Fresh from its triumph at the 2024 Hong Kong Film Awards, where Soi Cheang clinched the Best Director accolade and Sammo Hung was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award, "Twilight of the Warriors: Walled In" arrives with unparalleled anticipation and acclaim.

Prepare to be enthralled as Trinity CineAsia invites audiences to immerse themselves in the captivating world of "Twilight of the Warriors: Walled In," a cinematic event destined to leave an indelible mark on viewers everywhere.
