You've got to watch this new trailer for director Yuen Woo Ping's martial arts film True Legend because it's pretty freakin' mind-blowingly badass! Why does this movie look so awesome? Because it comes from Woo Ping, the man who did the kung fu choreography for The Matrix films, Kill Bill 1 and 2, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon and Fearless. He was also the director of several classic martial arts films including Snake in Eagle's Shadow, Twin Warriors and Iron Monkey. Just watch the trailer already!
Yuen Woo Ping (The Matrix trilogy, Kill Bill Volumes I and II, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Hero) brings you True Legend, a heart pounding epic about the timeless battle between good and evil. Su Can's (Vincent Zhao) respectable life is obliterated when his vengeful brother, Yuan (Andy On), returns from war armed with the deadly Five Venom Fists. Weakened but not destroyed, Su Can learns a never-before-seen form of martial arts: the Drunken Fist. Armed with this new power, he returns home to honor his family through retribution by taking on his brother in a battle to become the ultimate warrior. Packed with distinct fighting styles--including MMA, knife combat and sweeping aerial stunts-- and starring martial arts legends Michelle Yeoh, David Carradine and Jay Chou.
The film is set to be released in theaters May 13th 2011. Watch the trailer for the movie below and tell us what you think!
