The “Tai Chi Zero” sequel is headed to theaters later this month and we’ve got your first look at the new poster.
The martial arts fantasy gets serious as stars Angelbaby, Jayden Yuan, and Tony Leung Ka-Fai strike a pose for the back half of the two-film story. The first part ended on something of an awkward cliffhanger but the second film promises marital hijinks between Lu Chan and new wife Yuniang along with Peter Stormare (“Fargo,” “Constantine”) joining the cast as one of the villains from the West trying to build a railroad through the village of Tai Chi masters.

From the official synopsis:
Lu Chan (Jayden Yuan) is still trying to find his place in Chen Village, the legendary town where everyone is a martial arts master…and Chen-style Tai Chi is forbidden to outsiders. But since he helped save the town from a frightening steam-powered machine, Yuniang (Angelababy), beautiful daughter of Grandmaster Chen (Tony Leung Ka-Fai), agrees to marry Lu Chan and bring him into the family. It’s only a formality, though – she is the teacher, and he is the student – and that suits Lu Chan just fine, as the mutant horn on his head gives him incredible kung-fu power, but leaves him dumber each time, and closer to death.
Chen Village still stands in the shadow of danger. A prodigal brother returns, Lu Chan’s presence invokes a curse on the town, and Yuniang’s scorned fiancée has an appetite for revenge, as well as some new partners in crime.
