RISE OF THE LEGEND: First Trailer And Posters For A New Wong Fei Hung Story
UPDATE 8/11: We've swapped out the trailer for the high resolution version, below.
Because you can never have too many movies about Wong Fei Hung, Roy Chow Hin Yeung's Rise of the Legend will tell the story of the martial arts master for a new generation. And we've got the first trailer and posters to prepare the way.
Heading for theatrical release in November, the movie stars Eddie Peng as the man and the legend, probably still best known outside China via Jet Li's portrayal in Tsui Hark's Once Upon a Time in China series. Those films were hardly the first to tell Wong Fei Hung's story, however, as his first big-screen portrayal of the folk hero emerged in 1949. But it's been some 17 years since the last of the OUATIC movies, so it's time for a new group to interpret the legend.
Sammo Hung plays a featured role in the new version. You can watch the first
(low-res) trailer below, and check out the promotional posters in the gallery.
