More Big Trouble Stuff
Posted on September 13, 2014

Yikes, has it really been half a year? I haven't had much time to do updates, but that doesn't mean BTLC stuff isn't happening out there... here are some of the latest tidbits I've compiled over the last few months...

comic

My stock of official tank tops may be gone, but you can still pick up some fan-based tanks and tees at www.moviegeektees.com. Be sure to grab em' before they're all gone! Mention WINGKONG at checkout to get a discount!


Just got word that the Nick cartoon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles just released an episode called "A Chinatown Ghost Story" featuring none other than... Ho Chan?

This ode to BTLC includes James Hong voicing the Lo Pan-like bad guy, and even has the minions playing Lightning, Thunder, and... Wind.

Big Trouble Comic Coming... and Raiders Guys
Posted on March 8, 2014

After a drought of Big Trouble news comes this big announcement:

comic

Boom! Studios will be releasing a graphic novel adaptation of Big Trouble in Little China. Details are still a bit sketchy (zing!) but it will either be a one-shot or miniseries.

If you'll recall, Top Cow was slated to do a comic-adaptation of the series back in 2009, but it stalled. Hopefully this one will come to light and bring new life to Jack Burton, the Pillars of Heaven, and the Pork Chop Express.

raidersMore info about this can be found on TGDaily. Thanks to Big Trouble fans Steven, Ink2001cover, and Willo1991 for the scoop!

And in other news:

The Raiders Guys are finishing off a Kickerstarter campaign to film a missing scene from the most epic fan-film ever made - a painstakingly-done, full version of Raiders of the Lost Ark.

They need support to reach their goal, which ends in a few days - check it out here.


Still Shakin' the Pillars of Heaven

Everybody relax, we're still here.

For those of you in Fort Worth, TX, Andrew of the Lone Star Film Society reports that there will be a Big Trouble in Little China screening on Friday, March 28 at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.

The film is part of the Lone Star Film Society's ArthouseFW - Cinemuse Series, which explores the collaborative relationship between John Carpenter and Kurt Russell.

Big Trouble - Gangnam Style
Posted on October 22, 2012

Surely you've had a chance to watch and listen to South Korean rapper "Psy" and his infamous "Gangnam Style" video. But have you seen David Lo Pan and his Wing Kong get into the act?

lp

Yes, it's "Lo Pan Style", meticulously produced by BTLC fan Wesley Freitas, who brought the web various musical parodies of pop-culture movies.

And yes, the tank top worn by Jack Burton (and "lady Burton", for that matter) can be acquired here at the Wing Kong Exchange!

New BTLC Forums are UP

New BTLC Forum and Section
Posted on November 2, 2011

After many years of hosting a phpBB 2.0 forum, I have decided to close the existing one and create a new, more spammer-proof phpBB 3.0 forum. The process will take a few days. You will still be able to read previous articles in the old forum, but to post new stuff on the new forum, you will need to re-register, sorry.

Also: I have added a new "About the Site" section in case some of you were wondering what this place is all about...

Big Trouble Screening and Canada News
Posted on July 16, 2011

I've just changed web hosts to Fatcow, and am working on redesigning the site. The forums were successfully transferred - I'm just trying to update it to phpBB3 (and purge hundreds of thousands of SPAM accounts). Look for some big changes to the site in the next few weeks.

Big Trouble Screening and Canada News
Posted on June 23, 2011

Big Trouble fan PK reports that there will be a screening of Big Trouble in Little China tomorrow night (6/24) at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, CA. This new 35mm print will play at 7:30PM, and it will be followed by a discussion with director John Carpenter, moderated by Geoff Boucher of the Los Angeles Times and HeroComplex.com

You can buy tickets on Fandango - General Admission is $11.

Also, in other news, there is currently a postal strike going on in Canada, so unfortunately I will be unable to ship orders there at this time. If you place an order (or placed an order in the last 2-3 weeks), expect some pretty serious delays until the strike ends.

And finally, Big Trouble fan and artist/illustrator ManlyArt is now selling his "Lo Pan Express" tee. Neat design!

Big Trouble Shirts on the Web
Posted on June 6, 2011

While you can purchase officially licensed Big Trouble tee shirts and tanks here at the Wingkong Exchange, I wanted to mention a few other options out there on the web:

The White Tigers Pleasure Palace ($22.34 + Shipping) - Big Trouble fan BF has designed the perfect shirt for tourists who want to advertise their visit to Mrs. O'Toole's holding pen for Miao Yin. No guarantees if the shirt is tax deductible!

Last Minute Discount for RSVPs to the Hong Show
Posted on April 7, 2011

Just got an email from BTLC fan Christine for those of you planning on attending the Monsterpalooza on April 9th:

"If you RSVP to replyhong at gmail dot com, you can get in for $12 instead of the general admissions price of $15. This is the first time doing a show like this and James Hong would love all the support he can get in filling this 500 seat ballroom. Get your name on the list and pay at the door. See you there!"

So there you have it. If you haven't purchased tickets yet, follow the instructions above for a discount! Sadly I cannot make this event, but if you go, be sure to mention the good ol' Wingkong.net to Mr. Hong and Co!
