I Am Bruce Lee Coming To Cinemas

Featuring a host of rare and never-seen-before footage and photographs, this compelling and visually thrilling documentary examines the fascinating life, continuing influence and lasting legacy of one of the most iconic actors and martial artists of all time - the legendary Bruce Lee.

Directed by award-winning documentary filmmaker Pete McCormack, I Am Bruce Lee features rarely seen archival footage as well as new interviews with Bruce's wife Linda Lee Cadwell and his daughter Shannon.

Some of Bruce's most memorable onscreen opponents share their memories including Dan Inosanto who fought Bruce in Game Of Death and world champion kickboxer Bob Wall who battled Bruce in Way Of The Dragon and Enter The Dragon as well as legendary judo champion and stuntman 'Judo' Gene Lebell who worked with Bruce on The Green Hornet and Longstreet.

The movie features contributions from Dana White, president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, in addition to current UFC champ Jon Jones, and fighter-turned-movie-star Gina Carano from Haywire, plus Bruce Lee scholar Paul Bowman, the author of Theorizing Bruce Lee:Film-Fantasy-Fighting-Philosophy.

The film opens in cinemas on 20 July from Fremantle Media Enterprises.
