New Teaser for Donnie Yen’s The Monkey King

Ummm… this looks really bizarre but some of the effects are cool; I like the clouds forming into the monster. This definitely looks like it’s aimed at a younger audience but with a cast that includes Donnie Yen and Chow Yun-Fat then count me in. It’s directed by Pou-Soi Cheang and is due for release in the US 14 February 2014.

SYNOPSIS: Sun Wukong, (The Monkey King) is a monkey born from a heavenly stone who acquires supernatural powers. After rebelling against heaven and being imprisoned under a mountain for 500 years, he later accompanies the monk Xuanzang on a journey to India. Thus, according to legend, Buddhism is brought to ancient China. This much beloved story, is as much a part of Asian culture as The Iliad and The Odyssey or The Wizard of Oz are to the West. This first installment in a trilogy of live action 3-D movies is actually a prequel to The Journey To The West, the much told story of the Monkey King’s adventures on the road to India. The Monkey King: Havoc In The Heavenly Palace will be released in the U.S. as The Monkey King. The first movie is the origins story – beginning with the birth of Sun Wukong and ending with his imprisonment for his crimes under the Five-Peaked Mountain. Along the way he acquires incredible powers, battling the armies of the gods and the armies of the demons to find his rightful place in the Heavens.
