Action-comedy-western The Millionaires' Express on Blu-ray in July

22 June 2021

Eureka Entertainment is to release The Millionaires' Express [Foo gwai lip che], Sammo Hung’s action-comedy-western adventure, in its UK debut as a Limited-Edition Blu-ray (3000 copies only) as part of the Eureka Classics range in July. The Definitive Limited 2-Disc Collector’s Edition will feature 4 versions of the film (all as brand new 2K restorations), O-Card Slipcase, Reversible poster and Collectors Booklet.

The Far East meets the Old West in this iconic action-packed adventure from the inimitable Sammo Hung. Hung plays a loveable rogue who teams up with an incorruptible Sheriff (Yuen Biao; Project A, Wheels on Meals) to save their home town from certain destruction.

Featuring an explosion of brawls, bandits, and bordellos; The Millionaires’ Express is Sammo Hung’s loving tribute to classic Western tropes, but also one of his finest pieces of action cinema. An electrifying fast-paced fusion of dynamic martial artistry, death-defying stunts, and physical comedy. Also starring Rosamund Kwan, Richard Ng, and Cynthia Rothrock (plus an abundance of cameos from other Hong Kong cinema legends) – The Millionaires’ Express makes its UK debut on Blu-ray in this definitive edition as part of Eureka Classics.
