HKL announce Tai Chi Boxer for June
Courtesy of Hong Kong Legends PR we now know which title will accompany Jackie Chan's Project A Platinum Edition (initial details here) in June. Currently slated for release on the 10th (although we expect this to slip to the 24th to join Project A) is Yuen Woo Ping's Tai Chi Boxer, a film probably better known by fans as Tai Chi 2. The full details are as follows...
Tai Chi Boxer - An enchanting tale of love and heroism underpinned by Yuen Woo-ping's dazzling fight sequences, Tai Chi Boxer tells the story of a young fighter inspired by the teachings of his heroic father, to combat the violent excesses of an opium-smuggling ring and win the heart of the girl of his dreams. Tai Chi Boxer is an outstanding tribute to the innovative genius of Yuen Woo-ping, combining striking imagery, compelling characters and amazing fight sequences.
