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:

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny

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.

    Looks as good as the first.
  • Hope it's good, the first one went on a bit.
      It didn't need that prolonged Mongolia sequence.
      • I loved parts of it, some bits looked super beautiful, but sometimes I think that Chinese movies have a different pace of storytelling. either way I'll watch this with as much enthusiasm as CTHD and the movies I watched as a kid but got lost in the politics of kungfu films when there wasn't enough flying around and sword fighting. :-)
  • doesn't look bad...however the whole flying asian thing got old really quick after the first one.
    • desispeed
      its been 15 years since the original and I have to agree that type of wire-fu action is terribly dated now
      • It's been part of that movie culture since the 70s. It's sorta part of the charm. I rather have them do real wire work (ala Hero or watch house of the flying daggers) than any CG action. You either love it or hate it.

          I know right? Wire stunts are "dated" but guys in tights and masks doing cgi flying poses somehow looks better? Huh? At least martial arts and wire fighting requires some kind of skill.
          • wylles
            Haha So true...
  • Edward Curtis
    So this was done in English from the start? Somewhat disappointing, since the original CTHD was what got me into enjoying subtitled foreign films. But, I'll watch it anyway.
  • Higgens
    I fell asleep during the first one. I then woke up went and got food, came back, and it was still on....
    • MrFoo
      Probably during the desert romance scene. That's a good time to go make a sandwich.
    I am pretty much going to see this for Donnie Yen.
    • Same! But im more excited to see how they use him in Rogue One.
      • DAVIDPD
        TRUE DAT.
  • realsherlockholmes
    Hmm, looks like the CG has improved since the first trailer
  • I don't care how cheesy this may look (I collect martial arts movies) but come on, Donnie Yen and Michelle Yeoh. Legendary BOSS status!!
    • Yes, but movies are more than just who they cast in them... Just look at Expendables, big casts, shitty movies. 😉 I'm hoping this is at least a bit better than these trailers make it look.

    Looks like fun to me!
  • shiboleth
    There is a problem of thinking this as a second one. But, there's no first one since this looks way too generic comparing to the real one. This will usual martial art movie, nothing special about it ...
