Explosions! Pretty ladies! Kissing! And, of course, kung fu! WellGo USA and Variance Films have released a hysterical new trailer for Stephen Fung's Tai Chi Zero in the leadup to its appearance at Fantastic Fest. Oh, and that poster featuring Shu Qi as The Mother? That's new, too.
TAI CHI ZERO 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 knowledge of Tai Chi.
