The first chapter in a planned trilogy, Director Stephen Fung’s (HOUSE OF FURY, JUMP) steampunk-infused martial arts epic TAI CHI ZERO (太極之零開始, 2012) debuts on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital January 22nd from Well Go USA Entertainment.
Featuring martial arts choreography by the legendary Sammo Hung (IP MAN 2: LEGEND OF THE GRANDMASTER), the film follows Yang Luchan, a young genius who, tired of being picked on, travels to legendary Chen Village to learn the art of Tai Chi. Luchan finds out the hard way that it is forbidden for a villager to teach an outsider when they do their best to discourage him by challenging him to a series of fights. Everyone, from strong men to young children, defeats him easily using their Tai Chi moves.
But when a man from the village’s past returns with a frightening army of steampunk soldiers bearing strange machines and plans to build a railroad through the village at any costs, the villagers realize they may have no choice but to put their faith in Lu Chan… who has a secret power of his own.
TAI CHI ZERO has a runtime of approximately 95 minutes and is rated PG-13.
Bonus Features Include:
• Behind the Zenes Featurette
• MuZic VideoZ
