TriCoast Worldwide and Cleopatra Entertainment held the USA premiere for Director Tan Bing’s $20 million USD action-packed thriller, ‘CHINA SALESMAN’ in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and New York on Friday, June 15th. Previously a high profile title at last year’s AFM, ‘CHINA SALESMAN’ is already listed on iTunes’ new release “best sellers” page and has boomed with worldwide reviews:
“A popcorn extravaganza.” – Dennis Harvey, Variety.
“This movie has a purity to it. Its ambitions are commercial as well as cultural. Applause is always due for that yearning to make a mark on the world for one’s self and as a representative of much more.” – Frank H. Wu, Film Inquiry.
“An intense action rollercoaster,” – Movie Mania.
“Very much an action-packed film that adds a little comedy into the mix as well.” Doug Hess, Irish Film Critic.
“China Salesman is an entertaining action film that stands out above most in the genre. The growth of several of the characters radiates off screen. Casting and script are both expertly done […] An Action film with heart, CrypticRock gives China Salesman 4 out of 5 stars.” – Sarah Salvaggio, CrypticRock.

Based on a true story, ‘CHINA SALESMAN’ is an epic, action-thriller about the dangerous adventure to Africa where a Chinese engineer/salesman Yan Jian (Dong Xue Li), comes face-to-face with another corrupt, French telecom competitor over the contract for the first African mobile telecom technology. But when Yian Jian realizes that a French spy, Michael, has ulterior motives and conspires to conspiracy to hire the great mercenary, Lauder (Steven Seagal), and former general, Kabbah (Mike Tyson) as a means of sure victory, Yian Jian must take matters into his own hands. “Will Yan Jian succeed? Will he be able to restore the communications and stop the new bloody civil war that is about to break out? Can he make China proud? Or will Michael’s plans become reality and the west take over and take everything from the country?” wrote CrypticRock’s Salvaggio.
‘CHINA SALESMAN’ will hit VOD, Blu-ray and DVD on June 26th. Check iTunes “best sellers” page or pre-order your copy on VOD platforms including Amazon.
