The Monkey King (2012)

"Journey To The West" is the most famous Chinese Mythology around. It has spawn into many successful TV series and movies (mainly from China, Hong Kong and Taiwan). Monkey King is the main character of this mythology. Today, I am going to share some of the photos highlight and video clip from the forthcoming blockbuster remake: The Monkey King (3D).

Besides the Hollywood standard of visual and special effects, the other major attraction of this movie is it's casts. Most of them are A-list actors/actresses. To name just a few: Chow Yun Fatt (playing the Jade Emporer), Donnie Yen (playing the title role, Monkey King), Aaron Kwok (playing Bull Demon King), Kelly Chen (playing Guan Yin) etc...

The release date has not been announced but it has created quite a buzz in last year's press conference. It is one of the most anticipated Chinese 3D Movie EVER!

  1. Make sure you see this film in an authentic IMAX theater, and not a DMR "lie-MAX" theater.
