Big Trouble in Little China (1986) - John Carpenter: A Restoration Retrospective
With unforgettable movies like Escape from New York, The Thing, They Live, Halloween and Assault on Precint 13 in his filmography, John Carpenter’s legacy as a supreme writer-director of genre cinema - and being a pretty mean synth score composer as well - is secure. The huge success of last year's Halloween, a direct sequel to his original genre-defining 1978 slasher, and which he executive produced and scored, only confirms how potent his cinematic creations remain. This year sees Deptford Cinema honour the master of cult cinema with a retrospective of his finest films, and included in the line up will be the recent remastered editions of Dark Star, The Fog, The Thing, Escape From New York, Big Trouble in Little China and They Live!
BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA:John Carpenter and star Kurt Russell team up once more for a crazy comedic ride into Chinatown’s underground supernatural marital arts war! Jack Burton, a rough-and-tumble trucker, helps rescue his friend Wang’s fiance from an ancient sorcerer in a supernatural battle beneath Chinatown. Remember: Its all in the reflexes.
