Steampunk Martial Arts Mayhem Awaits Those Who Study Stephen Fung’s Tai Chi 0


Steampunk? Martial arts? Fights choreographed by Sammo Hung? Wait for it — yep, my mind just exploded, effectively coating the interior of my skull with icky nerd juice. What more could you possibly want from a kung fu movie? I can’t think of a single thing. The trailer for actor/director Stephen Fung’s upcoming epic “Tai Chi 0″ is all sorts of kick-ass, so it’s a damn shame that we won’t have a chance to see the flick until 2013. Still, I’m willing to wait. Feel free to add this one to the top of my “highly anticipated” list. Feel free.

Before engaging the trailer directly, read this:

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.

Yuan Xiaochao, Tony Leung Ka-Fai, Angelababy, Eddy Peng, William Feng, Yuan Biao, and Jade Xu Huihui lend their considerable talents to the flick, which, again, looks fantastic. The quality of the embedded trailer isn’t the best, but it’s potential awesomeness is quite clear. When you have a second, watch it a couple of times.
