This Bruce Lee documentary will be screened on February 9 and February 15, 2012, in more than 160 theaters located in 60 cities across the United States. The movie highlights the stylized action Bruce Lee popularized in his movies and puts it all in context by sprinkling in seldom-seen archival footage from Bruce Lee interviews. “My family and I are so proud of this film, which truly portrays the legacy of my father and his incredible story,” said Shannon Lee, who served as the film’s executive producer.
