‘The Rooftop’ on Blu-ray and DVD December 10th!

The Rooftop - www.whysoblu.comTaiwanese pop sensation Jay Chou (The Green Hornet, The Viral Factor), drawing on his years as an actor, director, and recording star, creates a fantasy playground of music, moves, and magic as a backdrop to an action comedy which pays homage to the wondrous musicals of the past, while exploding to life with today’s sound and spirit in THE ROOFTOP, debuting on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital December 10th from Well Go USA Entertainment. Described as “Writer-director Chou’s ambitious Luhrmann-esque merging of musical numbers, kung fu, vaudeville and dippy romance is set in a candy-colored world with a deliberately retro vibe. (Think afros, polyester, vintage cars and bowling.)” by The Los Angeles Times, Chou composed 11 original tunes for this buoyant musical.  In addition to Chou, THE ROOFTOP stars Alan Ko (Goodbye May), Eric Tsang (Ip Man: The Final Fight), Wang Xue Qi (Iron Man 3, Reign of Assassins), Fan Xu (Saving General Yang, Back to 1942), and newcomer Hsin Ai Lee. 

 

 

“… lively, funny and colorful.” – Mark Jenkins, THE WASHINGTON POST

“…frenzied, funny and knowing, drenched in lavish, often surreal, imagery.”

– Daniel M. Gold, THE NEW YORK TIMES
