So why did Netflix decide to market the upcoming film “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny” too close to the release date? Was it ever forbidden in the media scene? If so, what does Michelle Yeoh have to say about that?
It has been more than 15 years since the audience first saw the first “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.” However, Netflix decided to make its own feature film, which looks absolutely different from the original. Question is, why was it not publicized soon enough? In fact, it will air on Netflix today!
Michelle Yeoh, one of the lead actresses in the original film, will reprise her role in the second one. In fact, she is the only performer who will do so. When she sat for an interview with Collider, Yeoh revealed that the second installment of the franchise would be completely different from the first one. Was this the reason Netflix delayed marketing before it was to release?
Despite speculation, the answer is on the contrary. Yeoh said that despite the storyline being different from the original, it worked to the advantage of the film and Netflix. She said she wanted how the fight scenes were incorporated with graceful movements like that of the first.
In other news, Slash Film reports that the second installment of “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” was not as lustrous as it was back in 2000. The source revealed that there was nothing special about it, that the story was generic, the acting too melodramatic, and the action, although properly synchronized, could not make up for other unsatisfactory fields of the movie itself. Is this why Netflix did not market it as much as the first was marketed last 2000 onscreen?
“Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny” will air on Netflix tonight and on selected IMAX theaters.
