The Warriors Gate (Chinese: 勇士之門, also released as Enter The Warrior's Gate) is a 2016 Chinese-French action-adventure-fantasy film directed by Matthias Hoene[2] and written by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen. It was released in China on November 18, 2016, in 2D, 3D and China Film Giant Screen 3D,[3][4][5] and on VOD in the United States on May 5.


A teenager (Uriah Shelton) is magically transported to ancient China, and must use his skills as a gamer to rescue Princess and overcome various threats.



The film has a budget of CN¥300 million.[8] Filming started on May 4, 2015. It was filmed on location at Hengdian World Studios in Jinhua, China and in British Columbia, Canada.[2]


The Hollywood Reporter compared the film to The Last Starfighter. Discussing the director, the review noted that "Hoene keeps things competent rather than creative, and shows little of the flair he did in Cockneys vs Zombies" and that the story wades into "familiar territory" that may attract a young adult audience "for YA audiences that are heavily into the 1980s".[9]
