The last I’d heard, director Stephen Fung’s upcoming steampunk-flavored kung fu outing “Tai Chi 0” wasn’t expected to arrive until sometime next year. Following a promotional stint at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, we’ve learned that this potentially awesome martial arts flick will hit Chinese theaters this fall. Not surprisingly, this news makes me quite happy. 2012 is currently shaping up to be a fantastic year for those of us who live and breathe martial arts movies.
Check out the official synopsis:
A gifted child with a fleshy growth on his forehead travels far to learn Tai Chi and eventually becomes a master. He then faces an army of steampunk invaders and protect the villagers.
“Tai Chi 0” stars Yuan Xiaochao, Tony Leung Ka-Fai, Angelababy, Eddy Peng, William Feng, Yuan Biao, and Jade Xu Huihui, with fight choreography by none other than Sammo Hung. Awesome? Could be. The latest poster, as well as the previously-released teaser, have been embedded in the space below.
