The original Big Trouble In Little China, which along with Kurt Russell starred Kim Catrall, told the story of trucker Jack Burton, who helps his friend Wang Chi played by Dennis Dun, to track down his kidnapped fiance' in San Francisco's Chinatown. There they face supernatural opposition from the ancient Chinese sorcerer David Lo Pan played by James Hong.

The film was a commercial failure when it was originally released, grossing only 11 million dollars in North America, below it's estimated budget of 20 million dollars, and received mixed reviews from critics. But, it gained traction in the long run, becoming a beloved cult classic with a loyal audience in home video. Later, film critics also gave it much better reviews, it currently holds an 83 percent rating at Rotten Tomatoes .
