Director John Carpenter always wanted to make a martial-arts movie. He got his chance with his eighth feature film - and his third time teaming up with actor Kurt Russell - an action-comedy set in the mythical and murky underworld of San Francisco’s Chinatown.

The end result was a movie that bombed in theaters but went on to enjoy a long life on home video and cable TV as a cult classic. Now Beef and Lobster are climbing about the Pork Chop Express for Big Trouble in Little China!
