Wu Xia Trailer

"None of you can match Tang Long!" Another official full-length trailer has hit the web for Peter Chan's Wu Xia, the Hong Kong martial arts filmed renamed in the US to simply Dragon (though I refuse to call it that since it has no connection). Thanks to Twitch and The Film Stage for first posting about it. I was lucky enough to see Wu Xia in Cannes and totally loved it (read my review), it kicks as much ass as this trailer makes it seem. Donnie Yen (The Return of Chen Zhen) stars in what is essentially A History of Violence set in China, but it's a damn good movie of its own, and I highly suggest watching this beautiful trailer for it.

Watch the second official trailer for Peter Chan's new film Wu Xia (aka Dragon):

In the late Qing Dynasty, LIU Jin-xi is a papermaker and father of two sons who lives a seemingly normal life with his family in a remote village. However, the arrival of a detective threatens to tear them apart…

Dragon, originally Wu Xia (or Swordsmen), is directed by popular Chinese filmmaker Peter Chan, of films like Comrades: Almost a Love Story, The Love Letter, Perhaps Love and The Warlords from 2007. The script was written by Aubrey Lam. This is premiering at the Cannes Film Festival as a Midnight Screening. It was bought by The Weinstein Company in the US, but they haven't set an official release date yet after its Cannes premiere. We'll let you know once they do. I will definitely be talking about this film for a while!

Donnie has been a favorite of mine for some time, sadly his movies seldom goes up in the theatres around me.

I'm surprised I haven't seen this image with random stuff photoshopped into his hands on the internet yet.

Can't go too wrong with Peter Chan. Hopefully will not be another boring shallow martial arts flick with him in charge.

There's actually a connection with Dragon to the movie. "Tang Long". the word Long means.... dragon. 

Joseph Chow on Jun 29, 2011


Yea, you're right. And I think he's from the dragon clan or something like that. It just doesn't fit though. Swordsmen or just Wu Xia is so much better on its own.
