The filmography of Master Yuen Woo Ping is basically a forty-year greatest hits of martial arts cinema. He directed two of Jackie Chan's early triumphs (DRUNKEN MASTER and SNAKE IN THE EAGLE'S SHADOW) and choreographed some of the most memorable action sequences of the last two decades in classics like ONCE UPON A TIME IN CHINA, FIST OF LEGEND, THE MATRIX, KILL BILL and CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON.
And now he's back with TRUE LEGEND, his first movie as a director in fifteen years!
I haven't seen the film yet, but I'm told it's packed with amazing fight scenes, and should absolutely be seen on the big screen with an audience full of rowdy martial arts fans. So I'd like to invite a bunch of you maniacs out to the Hollywood Arclight this Monday (May 2nd) for an advanced screening! Want in? Here's what you need to do:
1) Send an email with the subject "TRUE LEGEND L.A. Screening" to firstname.lastname@example.org.
2) Include in the body of the email your name and the name of your guest (only one guest per person, please).
The screening will start at 7 PM. Please bring a photo ID for check-in. I'm going to overbook slightly, so plan on arriving at the theater by 6:30 PM. The guest list will be posted to the site on Sunday at 4 PM Pacific.
Good luck, and hope to see you there!
TRUE LEGEND opens theatrically on May 13th, 2011.
