July 10 | One-Armed Swordsman

Director: Chan Cheh

1967 | 117 minutes | MPAA rated R

A noble swordsman, whose arm had been chopped off, returns to his former teacher to defend him from a villainous gang of rival swordsmen. Directed by Chang Cheh, it was the first of the new style of wuxia films emphasizing male anti-heroes, violent swordplay and heavy bloodletting. It was the first Hong Kong film to make over one million at the local box office, propelling its star Jimmy Wang to superstardom. The success of this film also spawned two sequels, comprising the One-Armed Swordsman trilogy.

July 17 | A Touch of Zen

July 24 | Project A
