Indie Trailer Sunday: First Trailer for Keanu Reeves' 'Man of Tai Chi'
"No referees, no rules, pure fighting, man-to-man." Following up the first images and poster last week, an official trailer has debuted online for Keanu Reeves' Man of Tai Chi, directed by and starring Reeves and The Raid star Iko Uwais. This isn't the highest quality first trailer, but it does show a lot of kick ass martial arts fighting, which it looks like there will be a lot of in this film, obviously. It has a sleek almost platform-fighter-game feel to it, with the locations and fighting shots, but I don't mind. I'm still excited to see this at some film festival coming up, this might be cool, it is Keanu's directorial debut after all. Let the show begin!
Watch the first trailer for Keanu Reeves' Man of Tai Chi, found on YouTube (via SlashFilm):
Keanu Reeves (The Matrix, Speed) makes his directorial debut with Man of Tai Chi, written by Michael G. Cooney. Little is known about the plot, but stuntman Tiger Hu Chen takes the lead as a young martial artist in Beijing whose skill places him in position to take advantage of lucrative opportunities but also make great sacrifices. Reeves also plays the film's villain alongside a cast that also features Karen Mok (So Close), Simon Yam (Ip Man) and Iko Uwais (The Raid), all with fight choreography from Yuen Woo Ping (The Matrix, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon). There's no release date yet, so stay tuned for more information.
