Man of Tai Chi

After starring in a few martial arts-influenced films, Keanu Reeves is moving on to directing one of his own. His debut Man of Tai Chi stars Tiger Hu Chen as a talented martial artist who’s recruited by a shady figure (Reeves) to participate in an underground fighting tournament.

The first trailer focused mostly on the fighting, while the second delved a bit more into the plotline and Tiger’s moral dilemma. The latest video offers even more of the lead’s backstory, as a grave old man helpfully reminds Tiger that he is “the only successor of this martial art.”

Karen Mok (So Close), Simon Yam (Ip Man 1 & 2), and Iko Uwais (The Raid) also star. Watch the newest trailer after the jump.

Keanu Reeves has been in a couple of big martial arts influenced movies (those Matrix films come to mind, and there’s the delayed 47 Ronin) and now he’s directing his own. The film is called Man of Tai Chi, and features Reeves as the villain, with Tiger Hu Chen (who worked in the Matrix stunt team) as the hero. The movie also features Karen Mok (So Close), Simon Yam (Ip Man 1 & 2) and Iko Uwais (The Raid), with the rather famous and very skilled Yuen Woo Ping (The MatrixCrouching Tiger Hidden Dragon) as the action director.

Man of Tai Chi will make its debut later this year, but in the meantime we’ve got the first images and a teaser poster.  Read More »
