Tai Chi 0 – Dope trailer

I truly love the direction some of the martial arts film have been lately. It has appeared they have added an extra flair to their trailers as of late. We can talk about Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Yip Man all day, but we must look towards the future of martial arts films.

This trailer is Tai Chi 0 is the prime example of what I am trying to expressed.This film is directed by Stephen Fung and Sammo Hung. Sammo Hung has really shown his artistic level heighten with his recent films as the choreographer; it would not surprise me if he is doing the same for this film. Starring in the film are  Tony Leung Ka-Fai, Angelababy, Eddy Peng, William Feng, Yuan Biao, Jade Xu Huihui. A nice old and new school cast which has made a strong believer out of myself. However, I truly hope and pray it is one of those films which is extremely bland while all the action presented in the trailer is the only action there is!

If anyone is familiar with hip-hop music video director, Hype Williams, you would naturally think he was apart of the film! Overall, the trailer is hot! Maybe America will recognize the heightened aesthetics of the martial arts world!


Mortal Kombat Movie Revamped!

There has been a confirmation there will be new live action Mortal Kombat movie will in the works! This is going to be exciting news to know Warner Bros (the greatest film company, my opinion) to be distributing the film under the direction of Kevin Tancharoen. Tancharoen was the director of the 10 part series which has been featured via online. The series created a wide range of people which cause Warner Bros. to give the movie a go.

I will be questioning if they are going to take the “realism” approach in the film. Only to a certain extent, I am all for it, but this game is built based on the theatrics of the characters in the game. Christopher Nolan did a great job with the Dark Knight franchise; therefore, I should give them the benefit of doubt, until further notice. Perhaps this will open the door for martial arts films in America to become irrelevant!

More news coming soon..
