Do you need some good martial arts-related news this evening? Well, here you go: Director Stephen Fung’s steampunk kung fu flick “Tai Chi 0” is getting a theatrical run here in the States this fall. However, since the movie probably won’t play in a theater near me (yes, I’m bitter), I’m hoping the film will enjoy a day-and-date release on VOD. I’m going to keep my fingers crossed until the bones snap in half. Not really. Please don’t call Adult Protective Services.
Once again, here’s the synopsis:
From the creators of DETECTIVE DEE and SHAOLIN SOCCER, featuring martial arts choreography by the legendary Sammo Hung, and Jet Li TAI CHI 0 tells the story of Yang Luchan, a young genius who, tired of being picked on, travels to Chen Village to learn the art of Tai Chi. Luchan finds out the hard way that it is forbidden for a villager to teach an outsider when the villagers, from strong men to old women to little children, repeatedly challenge him to a series of fights, all of which he loses quite badly. But when a frightening army of steampunk soldiers bearing strange machines shows up, the villagers realize that in order to save their home, they must trust this strange outsider with the ancient and powerful knowledge of Tai Chi.
“Tai Chi 0”, which stars Yuan Xiaochao, Tony Leung Ka-Fai, Angelababy, Eddy Peng, William Feng, Yuan Biao, and Jade Xu Huihui, is coming to kick your ass on October 26th, 2012. If you missed the teaser, then cast your eyes downward and enjoy.
