on June 27, 2013

Man of Tai Chi is going big in China. The Chinese film is the directorial debut of Keanu Reeves and is the first Mandarin-language film to be helmed by a Western actor. Man of Tai Chi is slated for a July 5 release across IMAX theaters in China. 

An official press release describes the film plot as an action-packed drama depicting the spiritual journey of a young martial artist as he struggles to maintain his traditional values and beliefs against the pressures of modern society. Targeted for his fighting skill, he is lured into the dark world of underground combat by menacing forces that seek to corrupt him with money, glamour and the promise of power.

"We're happy to be back in business with our longtime partner Keanu Reeves, an advocate of The IMAX Experience and a global star who has already proven to be very popular with our audiences," said Greg Foster, Chairman and President of IMAX Entertainment. "We look forward to working closely with Keanu and our good friends at Wanda, Village Road Show and China Film Group on this blockbuster title."

The deal includes the possibility for international expansion of the film in the IMAX format.
