Keanu Reeves was the guy who knew kung fu in 1999's "The Matrix," but he's graduated to being the "Man of Tai Chi" here in 2013. Reeves co-stars in and directed "Man of Tai Chi," which is set for release later this year. The film's first trailer arrived online on Wednesday.
Co-starring Tiger Hu Chen and Karen Mok, "Man of Tai Chi" features Reeves in bad-guy mode as the propreitor of an underground fighting ring. "You owe me a life," he growls at the trailer's climax.
