Get Some Martial Arts Action With Enter the Streets of Myth

Enter the Streets of Myth is a British martial arts film and from the 7-minute clip (below) it’s stylishly shot but also a little surreal too; when it first started I wasn’t quite sure where it was going and it’s got me intrigued for more. The fights were nicely done too, once again proving that we Brits really do love our ass-kicking action.

There was a press release for the film released last week, which I’ve posted below.

THE FIRST FILM SET IN THE EPIC STREETS OF MYTH UNIVERSE

INVITES YOU TO ENTER THE STREETS OF MYTH

STARS ZARA PHYTHIAN, A FORMER 13 TIMES MULTI-STYLE SPORTS MARTIAL ARTS

CHAMPION, FROM “HE WHO DARES” AND BEAU FOWLER FROM “UNDERGROUND”

Birmingham, UK 15 November 2013 Zara

Phythian and Beau Fowler go toe to toe in Enter the Streets of Myth, an intense proof-of-concept short for Streets of Myth. Streets of Myth is an ambitious web series set in an alternate universe, contemporary Birmingham, UK, where every neighbourhood is a fiefdom and every wrong look can end in blood. And everyone knows kung fu.

Enter the Streets of Myth aims to give viewers a taste of what’s to come in the dramatic, action-packed first season, coming in 2014.

The film is a portrait of two characters, each sent as champions from their respective districts, each determined to win the day. Rather than let their simmering, longstanding

feud explode onto the streets, Aston and the Jewellery Quarter send fighters to battle it out in annual grudge matches, each accompanied by no more than three other representatives of their neighbourhood. While the two rivals can’t send any more people, these matches have, over the years, become almost like county fairs for other districts, bringing people together to watch the fight. The Jewellery Quarter has walked away with bragging rights for the last few years thanks to their champion, a young man as cynical and jaded as he is unbeatable. This year, Aston have tried sending an unknown and untested new fighter to stand for them…

With contributions from some of Birmingham’s and the UK’s finest, including fight choreography by Rx3 Fight Crew and appearances from rapper Mad Flow, breakdancer Colosseus, DJ Silence, stunt crew SG Action and more, Enter the Streets of Myth is a vibrant, unique fight film that packs more than your average six minute short!

Enter the Streets of Myth will be available at 9pm, Friday November 15th on our website at:
