"Tai Chi Zero: From Zero to Hero" is the only Chinese film lined up for the 69th Venice International Film Festival. On Friday, the steam-punk action movie made its global premiere in the festival's non-competition section.

Director Stephen Fung spent 220 million yuan creating what he calls an "innovative, young and unusual" kung fu film, featuring elements of punk, romance and electronic games. The film is loosely based on the story of Yang Luchan, the founder of Yang style Tai Chi. It stars big names such as Tony Leung Ka-Fai and Angelababy. It also sees the debut of one of China's best Wushu athletes, Yuan Xiaochao, gold medal winner in the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. "TAI CHI Zero" will be followed by "Tai Chi Hero" and "Tai Chi Summit".

The Venice Film Festival launched on August 28th and will run till September 8th.
