Second Trailer for 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny'
"Once he has the sword, that will be the end for all of us." Netflix has unveiled a second official trailer for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny, directed by martial arts choreographer Yuen Woo-Ping, featuring Michelle Yeoh back as Shu Lien. The first trailer for this sequel to Ang Lee's martial arts classic from 2000 debuted back in December, but was more of a teaser. This trailer sets up more of the story and introduces many of the new characters for this one. The full cast includes Donnie Yen, Harry Shum Jr., Jason Scott Lee, Eugenia Yuan, Juju Chan, Chris Pang, Darryl Quon as well as Roger Yuan. I'm still not sure if this is going to be any good, but I'm definitely going to watch it. Can't help myself.
Here's the second trailer for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny, from YouTube:
The sequel, titled officially Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend, is directed by legendary martial arts filmmaker/stuntman Yuen Woo-ping, who has directed films like Snake in the Eagle's Shadow, Drunken Master, Tiger Cage, Iron Monkey, and True Legend most recently. With a budget that's "a multiple of that for the 2000 film", this sequel is set 20 years after the events of the first movie, and follows four martial arts heroes trying to protect the Green Destiny sword. The original Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, directed by Ang Lee, was a breakout sensation for Sony Pictures Classics back in 2000. Netflix will releease The Green Legend in IMAX theaters + VOD starting February 26th later this month.
