From visionary director Stephen Chow (Kung Fu Hustle) comes the comedic action phenomenon THE MERMAID, available on Digital HD June 27 and on Blu-ray™ Steelbook July 4 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, exclusive to HMV. China’s highest grossing film of all time made a splash domestically, scoring the biggest U.S. opening day and weekend box office ever by a limited release Chinese-language film.
This unique tale follows a beautiful mermaid (newcomer Jelly Lin) who falls for a greedy developer (Deng Chao, Detective Dee: Mystery of the Phantom Flame) who threatens her species’ ecosystem. The unique action romance also stars Show Lo (Journey to the West),
Yuqi Zhang (Lost in the Pacific) and Pierre Bourdaud (Chinese Zodiac).
The Blu-ray Steelbook release of THE MERMAID include “The Making of The Mermaid”; a behind-the-scenes featurette where the cast and crew celebrate director Stephen Chow; and a music video for the film’s song, Invincible, from artist Deng Chao.
