Nachdem Doc Brown gegen Dr. Who angetreten ist, kämpft nun Bruce Lee gegen Clint Eastwood. Das erinnert mich daran, dass wir zwingend mit der Versus-Geschichte weiter machen müssen!
Trailer zu “The Grandmasters” (/”The Grand Master”), dem neuen Film vom großartigen Wong Kar Wai (“Happy Together”, “In the Mood for Love”). Tony Leung spielt ein weiteres mal die Hauptrolle, neben Zhang Ziyi und Chang Chen. Das Martial-Arts-Actiondrama erzählt nicht weniger als die “story of martial-arts master Ip Man, the man who trained Bruce Lee.” – Vorfreude! Und mal was anderes von Wong Kar Wai.
Hier der Trailer zu „Bruce Lee, my Brother“, einem Biopic über den Drachen und seine Jugend in Hong Kong. Hier der Plot:
Bruce Lee, My Brother is a dramatic biopic of the eponymous martial arts legend as told by his younger brother, Robert Lee. It revolves around Bruce Lee’s life as a rebellious adolescent in Hong Kong until he sets off for the USA and conquers the world at the age of 18 with only US$100 in his pocket.
His father, a popular Cantonese opera singer who used to tour around the world with his family, Bruce Lee is born in San Francisco in 1940 during their US stop. The Lee family moves back to Hong Kong just months before the Japanese invasion in China and goes through the horrid 3 years and 8 months of Japanese occupation in Hong Kong.
Bruce is introduced to films soon after his birth by appearing in Golden Gate Girl in 1941 as an infant. He shoots to fame at the age of 9 by starring in The Kid with the stage name Lee Xiao-long (literally “Little Dragon”). As a teenager, he is not particularly good at school but is respected as a child actor who has worked in couple of movies.
As a young man, Bruce is something of a rebel who always finds himself engaging in street fights. His favorite pastime is hanging out in Chinese teahouses with his buddies, Kong and Unicorn, also a child actor who co-stars with him and will later appear in Fist of Fury and Way of the Dragon. His recalcitrant way will eventually get him into trouble with the police, especially after numerous ruffles against foreigners in the then British colony.
Nooooooo! Nothing is sacred anymore. Warner plant derzeit ein Remake von „Enter the Dragon“ aka „Der Mann mit der Todeskralle“. Und ja, es wird noch schlimmer.
A noir-style remake of “Enter the Dragon,” the 1973 martial arts classic that made Bruce Lee a global star, Sutter said he’s writing “Awaken the Dragon” as a contemporized drama about a lone FBI agent who pursues a rogue Shaolin monk into the bloody world of underground martial arts fight clubs.
Und wer soll die Hauptrolle übernehmen? Rain. Von dem ich noch nie gehört habe, aber grade dank Wikipedia lernen durfte, dass er ein Südkoreanischer Über-Popstar ist. Bruce Lee rotiert grade mit 380 Sachen im Grab.
RAIN to Awaken The Dragon? (Danke Micha!)
Hier der Trailer zur Doku „How Bruce Lee changed the World“, die am 10. Mai im amerikanischen Sender History US ausgestrahlt wird. Wann und ob die Doku hier zu sehen sein wird, ist nicht bekannt. Snip von Twitch:
HOW BRUCE LEE CHANGED THE WORLD takes a detailed and unique look into Lee’s legacy— revealing the story of his rise from the backstreets of Hong Kong, while documenting Lee’s qualities, both physical and philosophical, that drove him to international stardom. More than just a biography, this special pieces together rare family archive and material owned by the Bruce Lee Foundation, together with in-depth interviews with individuals who continue to cite inspiration from Lee to this day.
Bruce Lee is known as one of the greatest martial artists of all time. His commitment to a principled approach of training, and an unparalleled skill and proficiency in all martial arts disciplines, resulted in the creation of one of the greatest physiques in modern history.
He was able to perform superhuman physical feats that have yet to be equaled, such as a two fingered push-up and a lethal blow called the one-inch punch, and was the first person to use kung fu skills on screen without the aid of special effects.
