The drama series WARRIOR begins its ten-episode second season on October 2nd, exclusively on CINEMAX. Based on the writings of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, WARRIOR was created by and is executive produced by Jonathan Tropper (CINEMAX’s “Banshee”) under Tropper Ink Productions, executive produced by Justin Lin (director of “Star Trek Beyond” and “Fast & Furious 9”) for Perfect Storm Entertainment and executive produced by Shannon Lee for Bruce Lee Entertainment. The series will be available on demand and on MaxGo.com. WARRIOR is a gritty, action-packed crime drama set during the brutal Tong Wars of San Francisco’s Chinatown in the late 19th century. The series follows Ah Sahm (Andrew Koji), a martial arts prodigy who emigrates from China to San Francisco under mysterious circumstances. After proving his worth as a fighter, Ah Sahm becomes a hatchet man for the Hop Wei, one of Chinatown’s most powerful Tongs (Chinese organized crime family). Season two follows rival Chinatown Tongs as they fight for dominance amidst the growing anti-Chinese fervor that threatens to destroy them all.

June 3: Gene Siskel Film Center of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago Presents LUCKY GRANDMA Facebook Live Q & A with Tzi Ma, Sasie Sealy, Angela Cheng, Michael Tow, Woody Fu, Clem Cheung, Wai Ching Ho and Yan Xi

Hilariously shrewd and breathtakingly resourceful, widowed Grandma Wong (Tsai Chin of THE JOY LUCK CLUB and MEMOIRS OF A GEISHA) is a stone-faced, chain-smoking harridan-from-hell to those who risk crossing her. When her excited fortuneteller confirms a most auspicious reading (carps jumping over the dragon gate!!), Wong withdraws her savings and heads for the casino bus. Lady Luck smacks her down in one arena, only to deliver handsomely in another, with only a little assist from some fast-thinking larceny. Flush with an ill-gotten fortune, Wong hires lovably clueless Big Pong (Ha) as her bodyguard when rival Chinatown gangs come calling, but proves more than capable of handling the dirty work herself. In this first feature, director Sealy delightfully turns the stereotype of the maverick action hero as a male or a curvaceous young babe on its head with this wise kickass granny with a mind of her own. In English, Mandarin, and Cantonese with English subtitles. (BS)
