New York City! Make some plans, because the Awesome Asian Bad Guys are coming to get you.
Next week, National Film Society's action/comedy webseries makes its East Coast premiere as part of Asian CineVision's Asian American International Film Festival. It will screen on Friday, July 25, 6:00pm at City Cinema Village East and Saturday, July 26, 2:00pm at the Made in NY Media Center by IFP.
Want to win free tickets? Scroll down to the bottom for details.
Filmmaking duo Stephen Dypiangco and Patrick Epino direct and star as Stephen and Patrick, down-and-out filmmakers who must recruit an unlikely team of Asian American heroes -- a motley crew that includes Al Leong, Yuji Okumoto, Tamlyn Tomita, George Cheung and Randall Park -- to take down a ruthless crime lord. The series is an homage to your favorite nameless Asian movie character actors of the 1980s and 90s.

AWESOME ASIAN BAD GUYS is a screwball comedy that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Paying tribute to kung-fu and henchman-typecast Asian American actors in classic Hollywood films such as DIE HARD, BLOODSPORT, and KARATE KID 2, (who usually had a 2-minute lifespan before they were mortally wounded or namelessly beat to a pulp), Directors Stephen Dypiangco and Patrick Epino (aka National Film Society) bring you this tribute to such actors as Al Leong, Yuji Okumoto and George Cheung, who play themselves in their most iconic roles to seek revenge, and kick butts. Bad guys are awesome, especially Asian ones!
But first, here's the teaser trailer:
I'll be at both screenings for a Q&A, along with director/star Patrick Epino and writer Milton Liu.
