China Film Group, Village Roadshow, Wanda Media and Universal plunked down the $32 million in financing, making Man of Tai Chi one of the earlier China and western co-productions. China Film Group put the film out in China, giving Man of Tai Chi a prestige IMAX release, but only managed $4,280,000 in sales. The film was barely released theatrically in most territories, bringing in about $1 million outside of China. The Weinstein Company distributed in the US through their Radius label and pushed a VOD release stronger than a platform theatrical release and the film made just $100,144 in North America. The film went straight to video or VOD in most major markets.
