Description

An artistic tribute celebrating 30 years of John Carpenter's cult classic film.

Despite being a box office bomb, a cult following has only grown for John Carpenter's Big Trouble In Little China. In the thirty years since Kurt Russell's all-American trucker got dragged into a centuries-old mystical battle for immortality and true love in San Francisco's Chinatown, the fanbase for this western-cum-martial arts film has kept the memory of Jack Burton and Lo Pan alive.

Packed with exclusive interviews and never before seen photos from the set, merchandise, and original art inspired by the film, including new pieces from the film collectible gurus at MONDO, The Art of Big Trouble in Little China will satisfy the devoted fan’s hunger for more trouble!.
