Back in 1987, filmmakers Grandmaster Y.K. Kim & Park Woo-Sung committed a fever dream to the big screen filled with ninjas, beards, Tae Kwon Do, and maximum politeness. Featuring some nice guys just trying to make it in a world with ninjas and gangsters, "Miami Connection" was that movie.
For years, that film has languished in obscurity until it was unearthed in all of its terrible glory by the folks at the Alamo Drafthouse. And America, they want you to see it starting in November.
New York and L.A. residents can catch screenings of "Miami Connection" when it hits the Big Apple from November 2nd and 3rd at the Landmark Sunshine Theatre; on November 9th, it'll be showing at the Landmark NuArt Theatre. Following that, the film will be screening at select theaters nationally (you can find ticketing information here).
For those of you unable to make the screenings or who just want to have a copy of "Miami Connection" of your own, the film hits Blu-ray on December 11th:
Drafthouse Films used the trailer below when promoting the movie two years ago for its Cinefamily showing and it's as excellent now as it was then:
