Donnie Yen: Legend

First we have Ip Man 2 hitting DVD and Blu-ray as mentioned here on April 19th. Now Donnie Yen will be seen on the big screen, in what I imagine will be a limited release, for Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen, directed by Andrew Lau, on April 22nd. Both releases are through Well Go USA

Official Synopsis
Presumed dead after single-handedly defeating all the Japanese fighters at the Hongkou Dojo to avenge his master, Chen Zhen (Donnie Yen) joins the Labour Corps during the First World War. Deciding to return home to defend his country, he arrives in Shanghai disguised as a wealthy businessman named Qi. He quickly befriends the notorious mafia boss Mr. Liu (Anthony Wong), owner of the nightclub Casablanca, and Kiki (Shu Qi), the club’s star hostess. With the rapid expansion of Japanese influence in China, the military releases a death list, sending Shanghai into complete panic. As assassinations become rampant in the city, Chen disguises himself as the Masked Warrior to protect those who have been targeted
