This new trailer for Tai Chi Zero shows some wonderful battle and fight scenes. The voice over is a little grating, but did make me chuckle (especially with the Cloud Atlas reference near the end) and reminded me of Kung Pow: The Way of the Fist.

TAI CHI ZERO tells the story of Yang Luchan, a young genius who, tired of being picked on, travels to Chen Village to learn the art of Tai Chi. Luchan finds out the hard way that it is forbidden for a villager to teach an outsider when the villagers, from strong men to old women to little children, repeatedly challenge him to a series of fights, all of which he loses quite badly. But when a frightening army of steampunk soldiers bearing strange machines shows up, the villagers realize that in order to save their home, they must trust this strange outsider with the knowledge of Tai Chi.
