Veteran stunt wizard Andy Long Nguyen has blown audiences around the world away with such acclaimed action hits as AMC’s “Into the Badlands”, “Boyka: Undisputed 4”, and numerous collaborations with Jackie Chan. Vietnamese audiences were the first to see him take the reins of action star in director Hoang Phuc Nguyen’s “Luc Van Tien: Tuyet Dinh Kung Fu” (Luc Van Tien: Kung Fu Hustle) in early 2017, and now, Western audiences will have the chance to do the same at the film’s stateside premiere at the upcoming Action on Film Megafest in Las Vegas this weekend. However, if you can’t make it, you can still get a glimpse of what’s to come by way of the newly released trailer below!
In the film, a modernized re-telling of a Vietnamese legend, sees Nguyen tackle the role of a wandering warrior searching for his lost love. Nguyen is joined in the film by Andy Le, Brian Le and Du Au, well known for raising the bar for YouTube-based action shorts on their channel, “Martial Club”. You can check out some behind the scenes footage from the making of the film and its cast of martial arts dynamos below.
Between the talent involved and the absolutely incredible action on display in the trailer, any self-respecting martial arts fan will doubtlessly have “Luc Van Tien” on their radar. Still, just in case you need further convincing, a quick gander at one or two videos on the Martial Club YouTube channel should most certainly do the trick!
“Luc Van Tien” is to premiere at the Action on Film MegaFest, set to kick off tomorrow, August 16th. If you’re planning to be in the Las Vegas area then, be sure to visit the festival’s official website for tickets, and stay tuned for more details on the film’s release in the English-speaking world as it arrives.
