A new international trailer for Keanu Reeves’ directorial debut Man of Tai Chi has been released, courtesy of Universal, and it’s certainly packed with loads of action!!! The story focuses on the journey of a young martial artist (Tiger Hu Chen) who gets involved with a man who runs an underground tournament (Reeves), who tries to lure the young martial artist into his web of corruption. With Reeves recently quoted as saying the film has “18 fights and roughly 40 minutes of fighting time”, martial arts action lovers out there will certainly be in for a treat!!!
Other actors include Simon Yam (Ip Man), Karen Mok (Black Mask) and Iko Uwais (The Raid: Redepmtion).
Reeves met former stunt man Chen whilst filming the Matrix series, including Man of Tai Chi’s action choreographer, Yuen Woo-Ping, who was also involved in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
No release date has been announced yet but some have speculated that it might premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in the summer.
