Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon Sequel Trailer

16 years after the original won the Best Foreign Language Oscar, Netflix has released the official trailer for the straight to streaming sequel to the iconic martial arts classic. The unlikely rebirth carries the title Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny.

The trailer confirms the return of Michelle Yeoh and copious amounts of gravity defying kung fu elegance. However it also abandons the use of subtitles in favour of going full English language for more mass audience appeal.

Fans of the original may remain optimistic, though undoubtedly their biggest concern may be the odd choice of soundtrack for the trailer. It’s a weird miss match of period setting  and synthesized classic rock cover, awkwardly reminiscent of fan made trailers most often guilty of such  misguided pop culture mashups.
