Wing Chun Craze Is Back With Loads Of Laughter

WING CHUN CRAZE IS BACK WITH LOADS OF LAUGHTER

Kuala Lumpur, Monday (July 4, 2011)

New Pro Star, Phaedra Pictures Ltd together with Malaysia Distributor formally announces the release of comedy action, ‘I Love Wing Chun’ in over 50 cinemas nationwide on 28 July. The inspiration behind ‘I Love Wing Chun’ draws from the popularity of Wing Chun with the blockbuster hits of Ip Man 1 & 2. Working on the same formula and similar footstep of the character Wong Fei Hong in the ‘Once A Upon A Time in China’ series which led to the comedic version in ‘Once Upon A Time A Hero In China’, ‘I Love Wing Chun’ is the combination of comedy and action in hopes to entertain the next generation of moviegoers while giving ‘Wing Chun’ a lighthearted, funny and entertaining fresh approach to the genre.
