First Teaser Trailer for True Legend

Wu-Jing.org has found the first teaser trailer/clip for True Legend by Hong Kong veteran Yuen Woo Ping on the films official website (great menu animation btw…).

Forced to live on the street he begins to dedicate his life to martial arts and becomes the master known as King of Beggars.
Director Yuen Woo Ping was the action choreographer for almost every big martial arts and action production in the last few years, so at least we don’t have to worry about the fighting scenes.
