Obviously Western audiences had been uncovered to Yeoh’s awesomeness in films like Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and the 1997 James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies – AKA the only the place the villain is a media tycoon beginning literal wars so he can scoop rival shops through, like, 20 mins. Still, Yeoh used to be the spotlight of this dumb film with but much more spectacular motorbike scenes.
Yeoh’s persona, Wai Lin, used to be this sort of stand-out for audiences that MGM regarded as giving her a solo spin-off film – however in the end they deserted that plan in choose of constructing extra James Bond films that includes invisible automobiles and revolting puns. Hollywood truly dropped the ball on making Yeoh the following giant motion celebrity who can care for a gentle jog.
You (sure, you) will have to observe JM on Twitter!
