New restoration! The multiverse has never been filled with this much madness. Easily one of the most unhinged and surreal martial arts spectacles to ever escape from Hong Kong, THE DRAGON LIVES AGAIN finds the spirit of Bruce Lee (Bruce Leung Siu-lung) battling through the Underworld against Dracula, James Bond, The Godfather, "The Exorcist," Emmanuelle, some mummies, and more. But he's not alone! Along the way, Bruce befriends the One-Armed Swordsman, Caine from the TV show KUNG FU, and last but not least, Popeye the Sailor. Previously only available via crusty bootlegs, THE DRAGON LIVES AGAIN has been preserved by Severin Films from the only known film elements in this universe—or any other.

Part of Kung Fu Clubhouse’s Bruceploitation Bonanza!

Those attending this show will have a chance to win a ticket to the screening of DRAGON SUPERMAN at this year’s Seattle International Film Festival!

“Where else are you gonna see Kato fighting Dracula and Popeye beating up mummies outside of an acid trip? My attitude when it comes to Bruceploitation movies is go big or go home, and The Dragon Lives Again goes for everything but the kitchen sink… and now that I think about it, there actually might have been a kitchen sink in there somewhere.” Brandon Tenold, Brandon’s Cult Movie Reviews

“Honestly, you have to see this to believe it even exists.” Craig Lines, Den of Geek
