International Trailer & A New Clip for Yuen Woo Ping’s ‘True Legend’

A trailer for Yuen Woo Ping’s True Legend is finally online. The film opened last year in Asia and in the UK, but hasn’t yet been released anywhere in North America. For anyone unfamiliar, Yuen Woo-ping is renowned as one of the most successful and influential figures in the world of Hong Kong action cinema. He began directing in 1978 with Snake in the Eagle’s Shadow, starring Jackie Chan, followed quickly by Drunken Master launching Jackie Chan as a major film-star. He has worked with the biggest stars in Hong Kong and in some of the biggest movies, including with Sammo Hung in Magnificent Butcher (1979), Yuen Biao in Dreadnaught, Donnie Yen in Iron Monkey, and Jet Li and Michelle Yeoh in Tai Chi Master and Wing Chun.

Yuen’s works, particularly his action choreography on Fist of Legend (propably the greatest martial arts movie ever made), attracted the attention of the Wachowski brothers, who hired him as the martial arts choreographer on The Matrix. The following year he worked on Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, making him a highly sought after figure in Hollywood. He eventually work on the Matrix sequels and both Kill Bill films.

Here is the official plot synopsis:

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.
