Arriving soon in your near by theatres , Marvel produced, Shang- Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings is making all the right noises by increasing excitement and anticipation among the fans at the pinnacle. The cast and crew of this movie is leaving no stones unturned to keep the audience occupied before the movie releases on September 03, 2021. The lead actor from the movie, Simu Liu, recently posted a video which gave a preview on how he prepped up for his role. He shared a glimpse of his BTS training session clip for his role as Shang Chi in this action power packed movie.
The post reads :
Part of the joy of being an actor is the process of becoming one with a character. Whether it’s jazz piano, tap dancing or beating the living daylights out of people, a performer inhabits the character and fully gives themselves to the transformation process.
Asian actors don’t just do kung fu; but Shang-Chi does. It’s just one of the many things that flesh out his personality, but it’s easily the most challenging from a physical perspective. That meant I had to get to work. Hours each day, in addition to bodybuilding and conditioning with my trainer, were spent in order to build my character. Movement, speed and explosiveness were paramount; we couldn’t just build muscle for sake of bulk. Flexibility was massively lacking, and had to be stretched out one painful session after another. Little by little, I got better. Now, we are finally ready for this movie to come out.
Make history with us this Friday; I promise you’ll be blown away.
(As for the jazz piano and tap dancing… stay tuned.)
