Although it was recently announced that an authorized Bruce Lee biopic is currently in the works, in the meantime we’ve got yet another unauthorized movie about the man that is sure to divide fans. Birth of the Dragon is loosely based on Bruce Lee’s experiences training and teaching martial arts in 1960s San Francisco and his legendary fight with kung fu master Wong Jack Man. The movie has drawn some criticism for taking liberties with the true story but it also aims to pay tribute to the style of Lee’s own ’70s action movies. Directed by George Nolfi (The Adjustment Bureau), it premiered last year at TIFF although this is reportedly a new cut of the film. Birth of the Dragon stars Phillip Ng, Xia Yu and Billy Magnussen and it hits theatres on Aug. 25th. Check out the trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.
