Rise Of The Legend - 黃飛鴻之英雄有夢 - Trailer
Rise Of The Legend (黃飛鴻之英雄有夢) recently released it's first teaser trailer and some media pics. The first two pictures in this post are background pictures from Eddie Peng's Facebook page. Angelababy appeared in the first promotional event, suggesting that she would be the main female lead. However, Angelababy's role has been reduce to an guess appearance.
I've made it no secret that my favorite actor from the last 7-8 years is Eddie Peng. Hear Me (聽說) and Unbeatable (激戰) are two of my favorite films. Add in his other movies, Eddie Peng's next in line to take over the leading man mantle that has been held on too tightly by a select few.
I am excited by what little was shown in the teaser. Jet Li played Wong Fei Hung very straight, often to comedic effects. Jet Li's strength was his martial arts and highlighting those aspects made the casting a success. Jackie Chan's take was comedic and showed that Wong's not so straight and narrow. Eddie Peng's Wong Fei Hung looks both strong and romantic, elements that were sorely missing from the others.
