Impressive Teaser Trailer for Michael Chuah’s Fist of Dragon

FistofDragonWell-executed promotional trailers for intense martial arts movies are not unlike a hit of crack: as soon as you you get that initial buzz, you instantly want more. The clip for Michael Chuah’s upcoming kung fu extravaganza “Fist of Dragon” is insanely tasty, and has quickly wormed its way to the top of my 2010 must-see list. Where did this film come from? Why haven’t I heard anything about it until this very moment? Had it not been for Twitch Film, I may have missed this one altogether. Which, of course, would have been a damn shame, as I love me some old-school kung fu.

Here’s the rundown of the plot:

Fist of Dragon” tells the story of Li, who comes to South East Asia by the request of his father to help out his uncle who has been facing financial difficulties. Li, upon arriving in the town, feels out of place due to the differences in cultures of the people here. When he discovers that his uncle has been facing many hardships posed by the local mobsters, Li decides to stay and to help his uncle and get rid of them. However, Li encounters resistance from the locals as Li’s action brings the wrath of the triad and drags the whole town into turmoil. Moreover, his uncle’s daughter, Lily is on the triad side, and their relationship is badly affected when the confrontation between the two groups reach its peak.

From a cinematic standpoint, 2010 keeps looking better and better. “Fist of Dragon” is currently scheduled for release in Hong Kong next March. Check out the trailer below.

He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at) beyondhollywood.com.
