Las Vegas, NV – June 18, 2018 –
”The craziest action movie ever [has] come to America.” – Maxim, Adam K. Raymond on ‘CHINA SALESMAN’.
Friday night was truly an explosive spectacle. TriCoast Worldwide and Cleopatra Entertainment held the USA premiere for Director Tan Bing’s $20 million USD action-packed thriller, ‘CHINA SALESMAN’ at Las Vegas’ Galaxy Cannery theatres on June 15th. As this summer’s must-see action flick, ‘CHINA SALESMAN’ will continue its limited USA theatrical in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and New York, before playing other major cities and will soon to be released to VOD.

Based on a true story, ‘CHINA SALESMAN’ is an intoxicating and epic international thriller following two telecom companies, MTM and DH, who fiercely compete to become Africa’s first mobile telecom technology, as a means to control the continent’s great mineral sources and to determine which country obtains the “better” technology to assist the communication between the north and the south. Representing the Chinese is a young IT engineer, Yan Jian (Dong Xue Li), who quickly discovers the outside countries’ personal, corrupt agendas by uncovering Michael, a French spy’s conspiracy to hire the great mercenary, Lauder (Steven Seagal), and former general, Kabbah (Mike Tyson) as a means of sure victory. Realizing only he can stop them, Yan Jian helps the president secure a line of communication throughout the country, to fight off the insurrection and restore peace. Will he be able to put a stop to their conspiracy? Or will he get caught up in the whirlwind of explosive mayhem and danger?
“When we, as a society, encounter these dire times we need something to lift our spirits and let us know that in the end, it will all be ok. We need a hero to show us the light. Today that hero is China Salesman,” wrote Bloody Disgusting’s Chris Coffel.
Since TriCoast Worldwide’s USA trailer drop last November, action-lovers in the USA have long-awaited the spectacular, eight-minute fight scene between Aikido sensation, Seagal and former heavyweight champ, Tyson. The duo’s battle-of-a-lifetime is a true action gem, as The Hollywood Reporter’s Ritman dubbed ‘CHINA SALESMAN’ as the first honoree of The Hollywood Reporter’s “Most ‘AFM’ Film of AFM” award. “China Salesman and Tan Bing, we salute you.”
‘CHINA SALESMAN’ will continue its limited USA theatricals in Las Vegas (Galaxy Cannery), Los Angeles (Arena Cinelounge Sunset), and New York (Cinema Village). “If it is playing by you I implore you to go and see it. For those that can’t catch it in theaters, fear not. The film will hit VOD, Blu-ray and DVD on June 26th. You can actually pre-order a copy now from Amazon,” concluded Bloody Disgusting’s Coffel.
‘CHINA SALESMAN’ is co-financed by Chinese conglomerate, Dalian Wanda Group and China’s state-run, China Film Group. In collaboration with Chinese company, Golden God Video & Culture Company, ‘CHINA SALESMAN’ contains a worldwide cast and crew, including the lead of Dong Xue Li (‘Sacrifice’, ‘The Wonderful Wedding’), Eriq Ebouaney (‘Hitman’, ‘Transporter3’), Steven Seagal (‘Above the Law’, ‘Under Siege’, ‘Exit Wounds’) and former heavyweight champ, Mike Tyson (‘Rocky Balboa’, ‘The Hangover’).
