Much to the disappointment of Trekkies everywhere, Star Trek: Discovery will not debut in the New Year as initially advertised by CBS back in the spring. There’s a lot of anticipation for the show, even though Hannibal showrunner Bryan Fuller stepped away from his day-to-day duties on it last month, but representing the first new Trek to be seen on TVs in 12 years, fans are hoping that Discovery will be everything they didn’t get with the three most recent Trek movies. That’s a lot to put on the head of the actress who ends up taking lead on Discovery, but something tells us that Michelle Yeoh can probably handle it. (more…)
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny the sequel to the original award-winning film returns to Netflix. The sequel is loosely connected to the film due to its focus on Michelle Yeoh‘s character Yu Shu Lien. The plot, at this point, looks entirely standalone, but promises another eye-dazzling, high-flying, fantasy-tinged martial arts epic set in the same world as the first film. Check out the trailer for the film below.
Based on the traditional Chinese “wuxia” (martial arts and chivalry) genre, Ang Lee’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was praised for it’s story, cinematography and mind-blowing martial arts sequences. Now the long-awaited and long-rumored sequel could finally be shooting as early as May, thanks to Sony and the Weinstein Company having cleared up their battle over the rights to the source material.
You see, just because your company is in the middle of court doesn’t mean you can’t plan for the future. The studio has been ready for years and already have themselves a script developed thanks to writer John Fusco. The new movie would be based on the book Iron Knight, Silver Vase, the fifth of five books in the Crane-Iron pentalogy by Wang Du Lu. Thus, it would be a continuation of the story of Yu Shu Lien, played by Michelle Yeoh in the first flick (which was based on the fourth book). Read on after the jump.
