It's kill or be killed in this international trailer for MAN OF TAI CHI

1 min read


Welcome to Trailer Thursday. Oh you didn’t know it’s Trailer Thursday? Don’t worry, neither did we, but since we woke up in a heap of trailers up to our double chins, it’s quite clear that that’s exactly what day it is.

And what better way to kick off Trailer Thursday, than with an actual bit of kicking? Followed by some punching, then some more kicking. All courtesy of this new, more narrative detail laden international trailer for Keanu Reeve’s Man of Tai Chi.

In Beijing, a young martial artist’s skill places him in position to experience opportunities and sacrifices.

I would really like to say that you merely imagined that Keanu Reeves just did a blatant Mortal Kombat ripoff, but sadly, he did indeed just shout “FINISH HIM!” at the screen. Oh Keanu… sigh.

Other than that bit of cheesiness, Man of Tai Chi is shaping up to look like a very solid kung fu flick, and I can’t wait to see it. I just have no idea how much longer I’ll have to not wait, as the film currently doesn’t have a release date set for it yet.
