Double Dose of Tai Chi at the Sci-Fi London thanks to Terracotta

We know how difficult it can be in those times of restructuring of the distribution market for Asian films in the UK. Terracotta is having a hard task countering the trend that sees shrinking outlet space for East Asian cinema. And… they are doing extremely well: First The King of Pigs and now they are bringing a double dose of Tai Chi martial art – Tai Chi Zero and Tai Chi Hero – to the big screen.

This is through a partnership with the Sci-Fi London Film Festival 2013 (April 30 to May 6) which allows the Chinese blockbuster series to find a spot at the Stratford Picturehouse this Saturday evening at 8:20pm.

Initially released in China on September 27 and October 25, 2012 those two films finally reach the British shores. This time the delay is of about 6 months, much more reasonable than for other films like Dragon. So the Stephen Fung’s vehicles shall still benefit from a novelty effect, and we will enjoy them as such. See you at the screening!

And more information about the screening on the Sci-fi London website.
