Good news, fans of Chinese steampunk kung fu movies (you know, the one or two of you out there), Stephen Fung’s “Tai Chi 0” is coming Stateside faster than expected. In fact, the film is scheduled to hit select U.S. theaters on October 19, 2012 courtesy of the good and decent folks over at Well Go USA. Obviously, unless you live in the two coasts or a major metropolitan, chances of you actually getting the option of seeing it in theaters will be nil. Fortunately, once a U.S. distributor gets their hands on a Chinese movie, that usually means the film will be landing on VOD or DVD/Blu-ray pretty soon after its theatrical run. Until then, check out the new U.S. trailer. Nothing you haven’t seen before from previous trailers, I think, but I could be wrong.
In legendary Chen Village, everyone is a martial arts master, and uses a powerful form of Tai Chi in all aspects of their life. Yang has arrived to try and learn it, only to find that it’s forbidden for the villagers to teach their secret style to an outsider. But when a mysterious man comes to town with a frightening steam-powered machine and plans to build a railroad through a village, the villagers realize they may have no choice but to put their faith in Yang, who has a secret power of his own. With action directed by the legendary Sammo Hung (Ip Man 1 & 2), Tai Chi 0 is a full-on steampunk kung-fu throw down that will knock you out of your seat.
Starring Yuan Xiaochao, Angelababy, Tony Leung Ka Fai, Shu Qi, and directed by Stephen Fung.
