New Bruce Lee biopic gets a trailer

Simon Brew Jan 19, 2018

Birth Of The Dragon looks set to tell the story of a young Bruce Lee. Here's the trailer...

We’ve already had one big screen biopic of the late Bruce Lee, back when Jason Scott Lee played him in Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story. Now, though, comes another attempt to tell Lee’s story, in a film by the name of Birth Of The Dragon.

It’s directed by The Adjustment Bureau’s George Nolfi, working off a script from Stephen J Rivele and Christopher Wilkinson. Lee will be played by Philip Ng, and he’s joined in the cast by Xia Yu and Billy Magnussen.

A trailer has just been released for the film too, that looks like this…

And we’ve got a synopsis as well…

In the world of martial arts, there is one man above all: Bruce Lee. San Francisco, 1965. Young, hungry and

Lilo & Stitch Turns 15: Can You Find 22 Easter Eggs and Hidden Mickeys?
Can you believe Lilo & Stitch is 15 years old? Walt Disney Feature Animation's instant classic surfed into theaters on June 21, 2002 and went on to earn $273.1 million at the global box office. Directed by Dean DeBlois and Chris Sanders, the family film featured the voice talents of Zoe Caldwell, Tia Carrere, Daveigh Chase, Jason Scott Lee, Kevin McDonald, David Ogden Stiers, Ving Rhames and Kevin Michael Richardson.

The movie was so successful that a direct-to-video sequel, Stitch! The Movie, was released on...

Happy 50th to Jason Scott Lee

Jason Scott Lee in Rapa Nui (1994)A very happy 50th birthday to one of our favorite 90s stars Jason Scott Lee. The Chinese-Hawaiian actor burst onto the scene in May of 1993 with major leading man charisma playing Bruce Lee in the mainstream biopic Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story and co-starring in the arthouse romance Map of the Human Heart. He chased that double with another the following year with Disney's live-action Jungle Book and the Easter Island tribe movie Rapa Nui. Only the last of those films was a flop but then he vanished, only popping up occassionally in supporting roles in action films. The roles just weren't there despite three early consecutive successes...

[Tiff Review] Burn Your Maps

Many films deal with the aftermath of a family death by becoming about how their characters live with the pain — it changing them into different people. Some distinctly show them living despite it instead. Rather than depict Connor (Marton Csokas) and Alise (Vera Farmiga) as the death of their baby girl just ten months prior consumes them, Jordan RobertsBurn Your Maps portrays their desire to move on after their transformations are complete. They’re searching for a future they hope exists but cannot yet see. They’ve dealt with grief already (at least they’re frustrated enough to believe they have), so now it’s time to embrace the life that remains. While their son Wes (Jacob Tremblay) readies for what this entails, we’re still uncertain if they are too.

But don’t think this story is one steeped in heavy drama from start to finish without room to breathe.

Review: Jon Favreau's 'Jungle Book' is a rich and rewarding family fable

  • Hitfix
Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book has been adapted to film numerous times over the years. The 1942 live-action film, which you can see via Hulu Plus if you have it, remains beautiful and mysterious even now, while the 1967 Disney animated version is one of their most iconic films. Years ago, when I was still new to Los Angeles, there was a stretch of about 18 months where my writing partner and I shared an apartment with a married couple named Dave and Laura. Laura was a preposterously sweet woman, and she had a keen affection for Disney animation. In particular, she loved Mowgli and his gangly, lanky frame, all elbows and angles. About halfway through last night’s press screening of the new Jon Favreau version, I couldn’t help but laugh, thinking about how much Laura’s going to love Neel Sethi, who stars as Mowgli, because he looks like

Examining Hollywood Remakes: Jungle Book

  • Cinelinx
It’s remake time again. Since there’s another remake coming out of the story we’re looking at today, it seemed like a perfect time to dissect this one. This week, Cinelinx looks at Jungle Book.

The novel “Jungle Book” was written by Rudyard Kipling (Author of Gunga Din and The Man Who Would Be King) in 1894. It was a series of short stories using anthropomorphic animals to tell tales reflecting the conflict between man and nature. Three of the stories featured Mowgli, a boy raised in the jungle by animals (Mowgli was partly the inspiration for Edgar Rice BurroughsTarzan) and is torn between his two worlds. There have been several film interpretations of this story, with a new one coming out this week. The two most famous are the first adaptation from 1942, and the popular animated Disney musical version from 1967. (We’ll skip the 1994 version with Jason Scott Lee

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword Of Destiny Review

With hits like Wet Hot American Summer and Arrested Development, Netflix has been riding high on nostalgic rebooting, but Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword Of Destiny shows a more vulnerable side to the streaming service’s original content (we’ll save Fuller House for the TV section). What once was a whimsical callback to acrobatic martial arts has become a repetitive, stone-etched journey that’s heavy on outdated pageantry, and light on mystical amazement.

Still based on Du Lu Wang’s source novelization (in theory), Woo-Ping Yuen steps in to direct a screenplay by John Fusco, but with Ang Lee nowhere to be found, ancient folklore becomes weightless, cut-and-dry whispers. This is a film built on patience and grace, which, unfortunately, are the two most mishandled aspects of Woo-Ping’s fifteen-years-later sequel.

Michelle Yeoh reprises her role as Yu Shu Lien, who once again finds herself ensnared in a

Film Review: ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny’

Film Review: ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny’
What a lousy year for long-delayed sequels: It may not be a stink bomb of “Zoolander 2” proportions, but in many ways “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny” feels like an even more cynical cash grab. Trading on the pedigree of Ang Lee’s 2000 Oscar winner but capturing none of its soulful poetry, this martial-arts mediocrity has airborne warriors aplenty but remains a dispiritingly leaden affair with its mechanical storytelling, purely functional action sequences and clunky English-language performances. The result has grossed a healthy $32 million in China so far and began its Stateside streaming release on Friday (while opening on about a dozen Imax screens), but regardless of how it fares, exec producer Harvey Weinstein’s latest dubious non-contribution to Asian cinema will add some quick coin but no luster to Netflix’s library.

Review: Does the Netflix Sequel to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon Deliver?

  • Cinelinx
After 15 years, the sequel to the popular martial arts action classic Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon has finally come out. Is Sword of Destiny worth the wait?

When Ang Lee’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was released in the Us in 2001, it was extremely well received by fans and critics, becoming the first foreign film to surpass $100 million dollars in America. It was nominated for Best Picture honors and Ang Lee was nominated for Best Director. It won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. In the years immediately following the film, there was a lot of interest in a sequel. However, the follow-up film was delayed and delayed again, and when filming was finally announced, there was not a lot of excitement or online buzz about it. The honeymoon was over. Now, 15 years after the success of the first film, the sequel Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny review – sequel doesn't have the chops

With a script seemingly written by algorithm, this dour follow-up to Ang Lee’s dazzling original film comes across like a poor episode of Game of Thrones

Ang Lee’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was, at its release in late 2000, one of those rare moments in moviegoing when everyone seemed to agree. From the director of Sense and Sensibility, this international co-production seemed like a film for the so-called prestige audience, in the vein of Ju Dou or Raise the Red Lantern. But at the 15-minute mark it cut loose with dreamlike martial arts action to rouse even the most jaded of kung fu VHS traders. With its nuanced characters, epic mythology, gorgeous cinematography, breathless action, iconic score (I can go on! It’s terrific!) word of mouth was unstoppable. The film advanced to suburban multiplexes, shattering (and still holding) box office records for a foreign language film in the United States.
