Eli Roth and RZA’s Kung-Fu Epic Expected Next August

28 November 2011 8:49 AM, PST | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

We all are now fully aware of RZA of Wu-Tang Clan’s love of kung-fu cinema.  Besides throwing numerous nods to Asian cinema in his lyrics, he also worked on the soundtrack for Tarantino’s Kill Bill.  Rumors were revealed years ago that RZA was going to venture into directing by delivering a film that would be a love-letter to the films he grew up with that starred Bruce Lee, Gordon Liu, and Sammo Hung.  With a script co-written by horror vet Eli Roth, The Man With the Iron Fists is close to finally being released.  So close in fact, that actress Jamie Chung seems to think they finally have a more precise time than just sometime in 2012.  She reveals these details about the film with Collider:

The original cut was four hours long and RZA was like, ‘Let’s turn it into two movies!’ and Eli [Roth] was like, ‘…No… »

Lengthy Trailer for the Chinese Martial Arts Flick High Kickers

7 November 2011 3:32 PM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

The plot for the upcoming Chinese martial arts movie “High Kickers” sounds a little goofy, but, truthfully, I don’t care. I really don’t. That’s because the promotional clip embedded below includes enough impressive fight footage to override my desire for a good story. Will I complain if the picture comes packaged with a digestible narrative? Not at all. However, it isn’t necessary, especially since kung fu veteran Gordon Liu is counted amongst the cast members. Yes, I know I’m pathetic. But first, here’s the synopsis: The Taekwondo club founder Zhao Yu Min was beaten down by the death of his favorite disciple Han Xu Feng who was killed in an illegal gambling boxing match. His club gradually goes into poor operation and loses most of the disciples. One day, a girl called Ling Ling comes to his club and pledges him to train her »

Martial Arts Legend Gordon Liu In Hospital With Head Injury

2 September 2011 1:20 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Gordon Liu, Hong Kong martial arts legend and star of The 36Th Chamber Of Shaolin, Kill Bill 1 & 2 plus numerous other films, has been admitted into hospital with head injury. According to reports from Hong Kong, his condition was initially critical and he required assisted ventilation through a breathing tube placed in his airway. He is now in a stable condition and recovering in hospital. There have been a lot of speculations by the Hong Kong media surrounding Liu's injury, with some reports claiming that he fell after getting drunk, and others claiming that he had a car accident. His manager states that he had a slip while playing music in a band room. Liu himself has so far refused all interviews »

Trailer: Tarantino: The Disciple Of Hong Kong Documentary

25 May 2011 10:03 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

As Quentin Tarantino searches out a cast for his Spaghetti Western movie Django Unchained, a new French financed and produced t.v. documentary is soon to screen in that country that sheds the light on the obsessed director’s love for Hong Kong cinema and the influence that has had on his work (particularly Kill Bill it seems, but obvious nods in Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction).

Titled Tarantino: The Disciple of Hong Kong, the doc by Jac & Johan brings together film scholars such as David Bordwell, along with Kill Bill star Gordon Liu and even City of Fire helmer Ringo Lam in what is billed as his first on-camera interview in over a decade, to discuss how successfully Tarantino has translated the populist nature of this genre to the Western world.

Watch: Trailer For French Documentary 'Tarantino: The Disciple Of Hong Kong'

25 May 2011 7:01 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While Quentin Tarnantino is known to be fan of all kinds of genre film, Hong Kong cinema in particular has been a foremost love (and major influence) for the director and that passion is being reciprocated. A new, French produced documentary "Tarantino: The Disciple Of Hong Kong" brings together folks like Simon Yam, Gordon Liu and Ringo Lam--giving his first on camera interview in ten years--to discuss the director, and how Hong Kong cinema has shaped his approach and made its mark felt on his own films. It's a pretty great idea and we're surprised no one thought to do… »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt: 5 (or so) questions with the 'Hesher' star

13 May 2011 4:49 PM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

In "Hesher," opening Friday (May 13), 30-year-old Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays way against type as a cantankerous and somewhat mysterious metal head who attaches himself to a family (headed by "The Office's" Rainn Wilson) coping with tragedy. Oddly enough, hilarity, vulgarity -- and some truly touching moments -- ensue.

Zap2it recently spoke with Gordon-Levitt about "Hesher," his casting in the next "Batman" movie and his views on celebrity.

'You confessed to being a metal fan in real life. Metallica is a big part of the 'Hesher' sountrack. What are your favorite Metallica albums?

Jgl: The stuff I grew up listening to is "Master of Puppets," "Ride the Lightning", "Kill 'em All."

The movie has kind of a timeless feel to it -- was that deliberate?

Jgl: I definitely knew that I didn't want "Hesher" to be the stereotypical '80s metal guy. I didn't want to put »

True Legend (2011)

12 May 2011 11:46 PM, PDT | Planet Fury | See recent Planet Fury news »

Directed by: Yuen Woo-ping

Written by: To Chi-long

Cast: Vincent Zhao, Zhou Xun, Jay Chou, Michelle Yeoh, Andy On, David Carradine, Guo Xiaodong, Feng Xiaogang, Cung Le, Gordon Liu, Leung Kar Yan, Jacky Heung

It's fairly common to see a humble warrior rise to greatness in film - especially within kung fu movies - but it's not quite as common when the rising warrior is also completely and utterly out of his mind.

Su Can (Vincent Zhao) has it all together when things are going reasonably well. He's just led an army through a crushing victory as its general, and is on his way to being promoted to governor. Humble to a fault, he instead passes the promotion onto his brooding foster-brother, and returns home to study his beloved Wu Shu and spend time with his wife and son.

He might have made a better choice; it turns out that his foster brother, »

Top 5 Tuesday: Top 5 Movie Beards

10 May 2011 2:23 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Welcome to Top 5 Tuesday, a column that celebrates film geekery, arbitrariness, and jaded cynicism. Each week we'll be listing off the Top 5 persons, places, things, or ideas of our own choosing. This week, in celebration of the release of Thor, Tmp brings you: "The Top 5 Movie Beards."

5. Zach Galifianakis, The Hangover

The Crazed Lunatic Beard

Galifianakis makes most beard-wearing men look like Dakota Fanning. Some say that the entire lumberjacking business completely went under once Galifianakis hit the scene. They took their axes and plaid shirts and went home. They said there was no point in trying anymore. Others say the beard has a life of its own. It hungers. It growls. It loves. In either case, this is a beard to fear.

4. Brian Blessed, King Lear

The Weeping Willow Beard

Like a beautiful, cascading waterfall of greasy, graying, gnarled hair, Brian Blessed's chin curtain is the uncontested monarch of the Kingdom of Beard-dom. »

Movie Trailer: True Legend

29 March 2011 10:43 PM, PDT | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

 

Is it me, or does every movie with the “least” bit of martial arts action have the words “From the creators of The Matrix” splattered across the marketing.

And, this movie is from the creators of all three classic flicks. Check out David Carradine in one of his final movies before his untimely death.

True Legend stars Vincent Zhao, Zhou Xun, Andy On, Guo Xiaodong, Jay Chou, Michelle Yeoh, Carradine, Gordon Liu and Cung Le.
