Ang Lee’s timeless masterpiece, CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON returns to movie theaters everywhere in the U.S. and Canada in a stunning 4k restoration on February 17th. Named one of the 10 best movies of the millennium by Time Magazine, Ang Lee’s four-time Academy Award®-winning masterpiece is returning to the big screen. More than a breathtaking martial arts film, CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON is a tragic romance and a touchstone of female empowerment.

Two master warriors (Chow Yun Fat and Michelle Yeoh) are faced with their greatest challenge when the treasured Green Destiny sword is stolen. A young aristocrat (Zhang Ziyi) prepares for an arranged marriage, but soon reveals her superior fighting talents and her deeply romantic past. As each warrior battles for justice, they come face to face with their worst enemy—and the inescapable, enduring power of love.

Set against 19th-century China’s breathtaking landscape, CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON is the action-packed, box office smash from acclaimed director Ang Lee featuring stunning martial arts choreography by Yuen Wo Ping.


“Mr. Lee has found a way to make even the action feel poetic and spiritual, while sparked by a high adrenaline content. The first fight scene, which brings all the principals together, will make you want to applaud. And each action sequence builds on what has come before.” Elvis Mitchell.
