‘The Man With the Iron Fists’ Trailer Introduces Us to the Bronze Lion
We're only weeks away from the release of RZA's 'The Man With the Iron Fists,' so it's about time we start getting to know the film's characters a little better -- like the Bronze Lion, introduced to us in the latest trailer for the upcoming martial arts actioner.
'The Man With the Iron Fists,' co-written by former Wu-Tang Clan rapper RZA with horror director Eli Roth and directed by RZA, hits theaters November 2, but before then, maybe you should meet the Bronze Lion, played by UFC mixed-martial arts fighter Cung Le. In this new trailer, the Bronze Lion shows us just what he can do. It's being billed as a character trailer, which means we should be getting a few more in the coming weeks.
The film follows a blacksmith who forges weapons in a small town, but when an enemy force invades, he'll have to stop making weapons and start picking them up to defend his town from a hostile takeover. RZA stars alongside Russell Crowe, Lucy Liu, and the aforementioned Cung Le in this adventurous, visionary tale that mixes martial arts with action and, as it's produced by Quentin Tarantino, plenty of violence, inspired by kung-fu classics -- of course.
