Swords Clash In The New International Trailer For CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON: SWORD OF DESTINY!

With the Ip Man 3 craze settling by next month, wuxia fans will have plenty of space to take in action legend Yuen Woo-Ping's newest directorial bid, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword Of Destiny. This one clearly takes a few liberties apart from its award-winning predecessor from helmer Ang Lee, but a proper screening will tell if we're bound for a sequel worthy of similar attention.

At any rate though, we have a new trailer now circulating the airwaves and it doesn't hold back on the fluid swordplay action we can expect to see from a glistening epic like this. The Wing Chun (1994) get the band back together once more with Yuen reuiniting with Donnie Yen and Michelle Yeoh for the latest adaptation of the fifth book from Wang Dulu's Iron/Crane Pentalogy, with release dates in Hong Kong and China set for February 18 and 19 followed by a limited theatrical and Netflix opening in the U.S. a week later.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny tells an epic story of lost love, young love, a legendary sword and one last opportunity at redemption, set against breathtaking action in an epic martial arts battle between good and evil that will decide the fate of the Martial World.  
Directed by the renowned martial arts choreographer (The Matrix Trilogy and Kill Bill 1& 2) and director (Tai Chi Master) Yuen Wo-Ping, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny stars Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, The Lady) as Yu Shu-Lien and Donnie Yen (Ip Man 1&2, Monkey King 3D) as Silent Wolf.  
Based on the acclaimed novel, Iron Knight, Silver Vase, by Wang Dulu (book 5 in the Crane-Iron Pentalogy) and written by John Fusco (Marco Polo) the new film is produced by Harvey Weinstein (Academy Award winner – The King’s Speech, The Artist) and Peter Berg (Emmy Award winner – Friday Night Lights; Lone Survivor, Hancock) and Sarah Aubrey (Friday Night Lights; Lone Survivor, Hancock) and executive produced by Morten Tyldum (Headhunters, The Imitation Game), Ralph Winter (X-Men franchise), Anthony Wong and Bey Logan (The Medallion).  
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny also stars Harry Shum Jr (Glee, Revenge of the Green Dragons), Jason Scott Lee (Seventh Son, Hawaii Five-O), Roger Yuan (Bulletproof Monk), Eugenia Yuan (Revenge of the Green Dragons) and newcomer Natasha Liu Bordizzo.
