Video game and martial arts fans, take note: this is for you.
The first trailer for Hong Kong writer-director-actor Stephen Fung's (House of Fury) Tai Chi Zero arrived last month and impressed us with its strange, Steampunk-meets-martial-arts storyline. The first of a trilogy (the sequel Tai Chi Hero was shot simultaneously), Tai Chi Zero follows Yang Luchan (newcomer Yuan Xiaochao), who has a horn on his head as a sign of his marital arts prowess and travels to Chen village to learn the secrets of Tai Chi martial arts. Rejected by the locals who don't want to share their secrets with outsiders, Luchan must save the town from the threat of a railroad that wants to plow through the village. all the high-flying trailers
