The Establishing Shot: In the mail - Henry of Navarre & Detective Dee: Mystery of the Phantom Flame

Posted by Craig Grobler on Google+ On Friday, July 01, 2011

Lots of excitment at the MI9 towers today, as we received not 1 but 2 films we have been wanting to get our mitts on for awhile; a 5 star historical epic promising Ridley Scott styled battle scenes and a Hans Zimmer score - Henry of Navarre as well as the welcome return of legendary Eastern director Tsui Hark with his rip roaring Eastern Kung -Fu detective extravaganza - Detective Dee: Mystery of The Phantom Flame.

Detective Dee: Mystery of The Phantom Flame outsold Inception in the east. And I still can't believe I missed out the chance to interview Tsui Hark because of an email misshap NOOOOOOOoooooooooooo!

Henry of Navarre
Discover the incredible true story of Henry of Navarre the celebrated warrior king who became one of history’s great defenders of justice and religious freedom.
