Lionsgate has announced that they’re giving Chinese filmmaker Guo Jingming’s young adult fantasy feature “L.O.R.D.” an international theatrical release this Friday, the same day the entirely motion capture CG feature opens in China.
An acronym for “Legend of the Ravaging Dynasties,” the story is based on a best-selling series of YA novels written by Guo. Fan Bingbing, Kris Wu, Yang Mi, Chen Xuedong and Wang Yuan star.
The story is set in a world of mysterious sorcery that is split between four nations – Water, Wind, Earth and Fire. In this world young disciples of the seven top sorcerers preside and fight evil forces.
The U.S., U.K., Canada, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand will all release the film this Friday, but it’s unclear how many screens the film will open on in the various territories.
