Watch Arnold Schwarzenegger rock a terrific mustache and fight Jackie Chan in trailer for The Iron Mask

0

Remember way back when I waxed poetic about China and Russia getting a Jackie Chan/Arnold Schwarzenegger action flick while the rest of the world gets nothing? Well, we can now check out the first official trailer for The Iron Mask in the lead-up to its theatrical premier in the UK–and nowhere else.

Since its first announcement, the film has pulled a Harley Quinn and changed its title to something not insane. The Iron Mask was first called The Mystery of the Dragon Seal: Journey to China (which, you know, rolls right off the tongue) and is technically the sequel to a Russian Gothic fantasy called Forbidden Empire. I have a feeling that’s not going to matter much, though.

Whether you’ve seen the original or not, I think we can all agree this is a film that will likely feature very little of Jackie Chan or Arnold Schwarzenegger. That said, what’s here could be some kitschy fun low-budget fantasy. Also, Schwarzenegger yells TOWAH, and it sounds quite a bit like CHOPPAH, and maybe that’s all we need.

The Iron Mask will hit UK theaters and digital on April 10, 2020.
