The world we currently live in isn’t the best. There are plenty of issues and conflicts and it’s just a struggle in general for many of us to get by. When we, as a society, encounter these dire times we need something to lift our spirits and let us know that in the end, it will all be ok. We need a hero to show us the light. Today that hero is China Salesman.
I know what you’re thinking. “China Sal…what is China Salesman?” Oh, it’s just this movie where Mike Tyson punches everything and everyone including Steven Seagal! Oh, you don’t believe me? Then watch the trailer, but make sure you keep watching because once you think it’s over a new, different trailer for the movie plays and then you have to keep watching still because once that second trailer finishes it goes straight into a third trailer! That’s right, the trailer for China Salesman is really three trailers in one!
See, I told you, Mike Tyson punches everything. Also, how about those line readings? Incredible, I know.
As it turns out, the movie does have plot beyond punching. In what is apparently a true story, China Salesman is about a Chinese salesman that comes face-to-face with a corrupt competitor over the contract for the first African mobile telecom technology. Tyson and Seagal somehow get caught up in the mix and a brutal civil war breaks out. It all sounds very amazing.
China Salesman will be in limited theaters on June 15th. I don’t know where it is playing, but if it is playing by you I implore you to go and see it. For those that can’t catch it in theaters, fear not. The film will hit VOD, Blu-ray and DVD on June 26th. You can actually pre-order a copy now from the MVD Shop or Amazon.
