Two brothers, one legend. We were asked to exclusively premiere a kick ass set of 8 photos from kung fu master Yuen Woo-Ping's latest martial arts epic True Legend and I just couldn't pass this up, as I really did love this flick. Best of all, these are awesome photos, especially in compliment to the official trailer, and there's even a few behind-the-scenes shots giving us a glimpse of the legend Woo-Ping hard at work. What I loved about the movie is that it's a true epic, the story spans lifetimes and there's a few weird, but awesome, moments, like those involving the "God of Wushu" played by Jay Chou. Check out all 8 new photos below.
If you haven't yet, go watch the latest trailer. Seriously, these look great, I really can't wait to see this again!
Su Qi-Er (Man Cheuk Chiu) is a wealthy man living during the Qing Dynasty who loses his fortune and reputation as a result of a conspiracy against him. After being forced out onto the streets, Su dedicates his life to martial arts and reemerges as a patriotic hero known as the "King of Beggars." That is quite a plot.
True Legend is directed by Chinese filmmaker and legendary martial arts choreographer Yuen Woo-Ping, who has directed numerous movies including Iron Monkey, Fist of the Red Dragon, and The Red Wolf. The script was written by To Chi-Long, of Blood Brothers, Jet Li's Fearless and Murderer previously. Indomina Releasing is bringing True Legend to limited theaters in the US starting May 13th. Who's going to see it!?
