The Cannes Film Festival opened yesterday. As this year's participating Chinese action film, WU XIA finally announced its first trailer. In it, the martial art ideas of "science, medicine and micro" that Peter Chan Ho Sun mentioned was squeezed into this scene. When Donnie Yen Chi Tan punched a big fugitive in the face, blood vessels in the brain ruptured, the forced went from the spine down to crush the bones as his tooth flew out. After another attack, his eyes in close up were filled with blood vessels. Later Yen Chi Tan hit a small fugitive's pressure point, blood rushed back to his heart.
The always "fast" Yen Chi Tan this time in the WU XIA trailer was suddenly slower. The dust from every step and a variety of slow motion thoroughly broke through the usual "Yen kung fu" to make all the action elegant and detailed overall. Takeshi Kaneshiro (Gum Sing Mo) even spoke "Sichuan dialect". His round glasses and chin holding ponder trademark gestures reminded people of Japanese manga's famous detective Conan. Tang Wen only had a tearful scene, his hopeless expression sent sharp pain to people's hearts. Reportedly, Chan Ho Sun held a private mini screening of the rough cut and invited director Andrew Lau Wai Keung, film company boss Kong Chi Keung and others to exchange opinions. Lau Wai Keung was rather surprised with Tang Wei's without a trace performance. Gum Sing Mo opened his eyes the most. "The Sichuan dialect completely changed his aura. I don't recognize him at all. This Gum Sing Mo isn't Gum Sing Mo."
