Big Trouble in Little China’ is a 1986 film produced by 20th Century Fox, directed by John Carpenter and starring Kurt Russell, Kim Cattrall, Dennis Dun and James Hong. It is a fantasy, action and comedy film in which trucker Jack Burton (Russell) finds himself involved in a plot of kidnappings and supernatural dangers in the Chinatown neighborhood of San Francisco.

Its exact budget is not known, but it is estimated that it was between 19 and 25 million dollars at the time, and its revenue was of 11 million dollars, so It was not considered a commercial success. In the DVD commentary, Carpenter and Russell themselves speculate that this failure could have occurred because ‘Aliens’ by James Cameron was released sixteen days later.
