U.S. Trailer for Yuen Woo Ping’s True Legend


Indomina Releasing has released a domestic trailer for martial arts choreographer extraordinaire Yuen Woo Ping’s “True Legend”, which opened last year in parts of Asia and the UK, but will finally be coming Stateside May 13, 2011. As with most foreign imports, chances are you’ll have to reside in one of the two major coasts in order to enjoy the slam-bang martial arts epic in theaters, so if you live anywhere else in the States, VOD is probably your best chance to catch it. That is, if you haven’t already gone the import DVD route.

Yuen Woo Ping (The Matrix trilogy, Kill Bill Volumes I and II, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Hero) brings you True Legend, a heart pounding epic about the timeless battle between good and evil. Su Can’s (Vincent Zhao) respectable life is obliterated when his vengeful brother, Yuan (Andy On), returns from war armed with the deadly Five Venom Fists. Weakened but not destroyed, Su Can learns a never-before-seen form of martial arts: the Drunken Fist. Armed with this new power, he returns home to honor his family through retribution by taking on his brother in a battle to become the ultimate warrior. Packed with distinct fighting styles–including MMA, knife combat and sweeping aerial stunts– and starring martial arts legends Michelle Yeoh, David Carradine and Jay Chou.

Starring Vincent Zhao , Zhou Xun , Andy On, Guo Xiaodong , Jay Chou, Michelle Yeoh, David Carradine, Gordon Liu, Cung Le, and directed by Yuen Woo Ping.

    Saw this about a year ago and it was fantastic…it has its moments of silliness but overall I was very pleased.

    I like the retro look of the poster. The trailer looks amazing.

    THIS MOVIE ROCKED!!! I will say the break in the middle kinda makes it feel like two different stories but it’s still a great martial arts flick.

    I’m glad movies like True Legend and Ip Man are finding their way into US theaters. I sure hope these movies find their niche and do well enough in the box office so distributors can bring more in the future.
