Coming May 28 is the Chinese film Unity of Heroes, a story about a shipment of a narcotic more dangerous than opium that is about to be distributed by a corrupt pharmaceutical company. In the face of foreign and domestic enemies, Wong Fei Hung fights to stop the spread of the drug and save lives.
The basketball feature Another Shot will come out on digital and DVD May 14 From Well Go USA Entertainment.
Based on the true story of Stephon Marbury’s fall from the NBA and his journey to rediscover his passion in China, Another Shot stars Marbury, Chun Wu, Bing He, Jessica Jung, Qingxiang Wang, Loretta Devine and Frankie Faison, with special appearances by Allen Iverson and Baron Davis.
In the film, Marbury teams up with a group of ambitious young professional basketball players in China, who dare to dream of one day winning the country’s professional basketball championship. With some intense training and a supportive coach, Marbury helps bring the team to the finals where they must face the seven-time championship team, considered by most to be unbeatable.
Marbury played in the NBA from 1996 to 2009. He was selected out of Georgia Tech by the Milwaukee Bucks with the fourth overall pick in the 1996 NBA draft, but was traded shortly thereafter to the Minnesota Timberwolves. He also played with the New Jersey Nets, Phoenix Suns, New York Knicks and Boston Celtics. He was an NBA All-Star with the Suns in 2001 and 2003, and was voted into the All-NBA Third Team in 2000 and 2003.
After five years with the Knicks, Marbury and the team agreed to a buyout in February 2009 and Marbury became a free agent. He soon signed with the Boston Celtics. Marbury was offered a one-year contract by the Celtics for the 2009–10 season but he turned the team down. He later announced that he would take a year off from basketball to attend to his business interests.
Marbury then played in the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) from 2010 to 2018, winning three CBA championships with the Beijing Ducks in 2012, 2014 and 2015.

When they find the truck is actually filled with stolen gold, the band of brothers realize they’ve been double-crossed by one of their own.

Jonathan, starring Ansel Elgort (Best Actor Golden Globe nominee, Baby Driver), arrives on digital, Blu-ray and DVD Jan. 15 from Well Go USA Entertainment.

The two divide each day into 12-hour shifts where they communicate only via daily video sessions to recount the day’s activities. Previously content to live life in shifts, their delicate balance is ruined when they become involved with the same woman (Suki Waterhouse).
