The books on which the film is based are kind of like "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" because they feature a cartographer who encounters many folklore and public domain characters. The first story was a horror novel involving a cursed Ukrainian forest that inspired the "Black Sunday" of Mario Bava, while this film seems to introduce characters like The Man in the Iron Mask, but also the character of Schwarzenegger seems to be named James Hook, although it is unknown whether he is the famous Captain Hook or whether he is just a named drop.

In literature, there is a long list of epic fights, from Luke versus Vader, from Rocky versus Apollo, from Ip Man versus those 10 black belt dudes. Now, the trailer for the upcoming fantasy film “The Iron Mask” promises a similarly unexpected yet epic fight between action legends Jackie Chan and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Well, the fight is probably not going to be that long and it doesn't even seem to be a big part of the film at all. The Iron Mask' is a Russian-Chinese movie originally released in China in 2019 under the title ' Viy 2: Journey to China,' a follow-up to the 2014 film ' Viy: The Forbidden Kingdom,' which was loosely based on Nikolai Gogol's novel of the same name.

That's right, there's another such movie out there in the world. The film is set in the 18th century and it stars Jason Flemyng as an English cartographer sent to map the Far East of Russia, and finds dragons, black magic, and a king of dragons? Clearly.

But wait, though Jackie Chan and Arnold Schwarzenegger are the biggest names attached, the film also stars Charles Dance (“Game of Thrones”) as well as one of the final performances by Rutger Hauer.

We’ll have to wait to see how the fight turns out, as “The Iron Mask” doesn’t yet have a U.S. release date, but it arrives in U.K. theaters and on-demand on April 20.
