One Long Trailer for RZA's Wu-Tang vs The Golden Phoenix!
Fans of kung fu - this one's for you! Okay, let me be clear, this is not the full-on $20 million kung fu movie that RZA is planning to shoot called The Man With The Iron Fist. That hasn't shot yet. In fact, I'm not even sure what the story is on this. These trailers are for a film called Wu-Tang vs The Golden Phoenix that Quiet Earth says has been "in the making for the past decade." I assume this was just a kung fu experiment involving Wu-Tang, that RZA shot as a way of getting into the genre and getting used to directing. But who knows what it really is. One thing I can tell you - they're both freakin' awesome. Watch the trailers below!
Watch the (only remaining) unofficial trailer for The RZA's Wu-Tang vs. The Golden Phoenix:
Even though this seems really lo-fi (or low budget), I think it looks pretty awesome. It just looks like one of those badass kung fu movies you pop in whenever you're chilling out on a weekend afternoon with nothing better than a big of… you get the idea. As stated in the first trailer, The RZA stars in this (and I'm assuming he also directed it, but I don't know). Fight choreography was done by Robert Tai of Shaolin Temple and a whole bunch of other martial arts films. You can buy art prints made for the film and much more on RZA's official website. Other than that, we're not sure when this will hit theaters or arrive on DVD, so stay tuned.
