Overview
Kurt Russell stars in thrill master John Carpenter's edge-of-your-seat adventure as Jack Burton, a tough-talking truck driver whose life goes into a supernatural tailspin when his best friend's fiancée is kidnapped. Speeding to her rescue, Jack suddenly finds himself in a murky, danger-filled world beneath San Francisco's Chinatown, where Lo Pan, a 2000-year-old magician, mercilessly rules an empire of spirits. Facing down a host of unearthly terrors, Jack battles through Lo Pan's dark domain in a full-throttle, action-riddled ride to rescue the girl. Also starring Golden Globe® winner Kim Cattrall*, this effects-filled sci-fi spectacle speeds to an incredible, twist-taking finish!

*2003, Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television, Sex and the City.
