SINGAPORE: Fans of Hong Kong action star Donnie Yen will get to see him in the flesh on July 19, when he comes to Singapore to promote his latest film "Wu Xia".

The "Ip Man" star will be attending the film's gala premiere at Golden Village Vivocity at 8.00pm with "Wu Xia" director Peter Chan, during their whirlwind stopover in Singapore, before jetting off to Taiwan the next day.

"Wu Xia" cost US$20 million (S$24.9 million) to produce.

It tells the tale of Detective Xu Bai-jiu (Takeshi Kaneshiro), who tries to unravel the mystery of how an unassuming paper maker Liu Jin-xi (Donnie Yen) managed to slay the outlaw Yan Dong Sheng.

His investigations inadvertently put Liu and his wife Ah Yu (Tang Wei) on a collision course with the leader (60s martial arts star Jimmy Wang) of the 72 Demons, a clan of vicious killers.

Unlike other martial arts films that have come before, "Wu Xia" features fight scenes that emphasise how each strike serves to incapacitate a human being, via cutaways showing the internal effects of the strike on the human body.

Detective Xu pieces together the results of post mortems and investigations of the scene of the fight to figure out what Liu did as well as uncover clues about who Liu really is.

"Wu Xia" opens in Singapore on July 21.
