legend of the fist: the return of chen zhen trailer

Check out Donnie Yen doing more movie asskicking in the trailer for Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen, directed by Andrew Lau. Yen picks up mantle of the legendary kung fu hero, previously played by icons like Bruce Lee and Jet Li -- with a brand new take on the hero. Take a look:

Here's the synopsis:
In 1920s China, the nation is divided by infighting. Japan has become the most powerful force in Asia, taking over Northern Shanghai. With the city torn in half by international conflict, the popular nightclub “Casablanca” has become a hotbed of spies, mobsters, English officials and the Japanese military - all looking to gain control of the country, with little regard for what happens to its citizens.

Into this den of intrigue enters Chen Zhen (Donnie Yen), who has returned to China after fighting alongside the Allied forces in Europe, bringing some dark secrets from his past along with him. During the day, he's known as "Ku," and appears to be just another wealthy playboy. But at night, he takes to the street as a masked warrior, determined to subvert the Japanese invasion while becoming entangled with the sultry Kiki (Played by Shu Qi), who has a dangerous secret of her own. When his past catches up to him, Zhen is faced with near impossible odds - but his skills are formidable, and he's up to the challenge.
That's a firm tip of the hat to Bruce Lee/Kato. The movie also stars Shu Qi, Anthony Wong Chau-Sang and Shawn Yu, and opens in limited U.S. theatrical release on April 22 from Well Go. For more information about the movie, go to the Legend of the Fist website here
