Worth Watching - Sept 16: First Trailer for Kung Fu Film Champions
Our friends at Twitch have debuted a trailer for a Chinese kung fu movie called Champions. I thought it'd be great to step out of the ordinary today and feature a badass trailer for a kung fu film, especially one that looks this good. The film is about a wushu athlete who takes part in a tournament in order to represent China in a martial arts performance at an Olympic Games so as to win the heart of a girl who is a sprinter. What better way to impress a girl than with some kung fu?! Apparently the film features martial arts styles "ranging from Praying Mantis Boxing through Eagle Claw to Taichi." Maybe this will be awesome?
Watch the first trailer for Champions:
Champions is directed by Chinese filmmaker Tsui Siu Ming and stars Dicky Cheung, Wong Tsui Yu, and Debbie Goh. As far as we know, this doesn't have a US distributor yet, but it's expected to premiere in Asia in November this year. We can expect to hear more about this film after its release overseas, including possibly its eventual appearance here in America. For now, you can find out some more details via Twitch or just start telling you friends all about it and spreading the word. Does it look any good?
