Watch The Official Music Video For RISE OF THE LEGEND

The forthcoming release of director Roy Chow‘s kung fu epic, Rise Of The Legend, is only a week and a half away from its initial theatrical release in China, and the momentum is definitely there. As for how it will do among the critics is still pending news to many, although one can only hope for some good prospects for a film that dares to make its case known among hardcore martial arts fans that are partial to the classics, and you really have to hand it to Chow for leading those efforts.

The trailers themselves look glossy and present an otherwise very ambitious take on the classic, fabled life and legend of real-life martial arts hero, Wong Fei-Hung, and his origins as a rebel against corrupt government officials and the criminals who operate under them. Here, based on a script by Fearless scribe Christine To, a young master Wong’s tale begins from childhood into his youthful years as a bonafide martial arts rebel and badass, played by actor Eddie Peng whose leading man status, on top of his rigorous training regime prior to filming, will hopefully help cultivate a continuing legacy of support from fans who have grown attached to the character in previous films. And here to help garner more of that appreciation in advance is the brand new lyrical music video for the film’s title song, “Your Legend”, performed by award-winning Taiwanese rock band, Mayday, which you can now watch below.

Edko Films is releasing Rise Of The Legend in China next Friday, and in Hong Kong one week after, with Universal Pictures International gearing up for the film’s worldwide premiere next year.
