HILARIOUSLY ADVENTUROUS TRAILER FOR ASIAN EPIC COMEDY FANTASY MOVIE 'JOURNEY TO THE WEST' FROM STEPHEN CHOW

  JOURNEY TO THE WEST
DIRECTED BY STEPHEN CHOW
It's a very poor postfestive week in movie news business, people, so the only thing I have for you this weekend is the new trailer for Asian epic adventure JOURNEY TO THE WEST which will come to US theatres in March next year. Directed by Stephen Chow, whom you know from his previous Asian hits SHAOLIN SOCCER and KUNG FU HUSTLE, this epic fantasy comedy adventure revolves around a demon hunter Xuan Zang (Zhang Wen), who goes on a journey with three demons to atone for his sins.

  THE STORY OF THE JOURNEY
FIGHTING DEMONS WITH LOVE
This is a world plagued by demons, who cause its human inhabitants unspeakable suffering. Young demon hunter Xuan Zang, fearlessly guided by his belief in "giving himself for the greater cause," risks his all and conquers a water demon, a pig demon and the demon of all demons, Sun Wukong. He embraces them as his disciples, and melts them with love. Meanwhile, Xuan Zang discovers the true meaning of Greater Love himself. In order to atone for their own sins and save the common people, the four of them embark on a journey to the West that's full of challenges...

    1. Probably not, Asian producers usually try not to be similar to American ones in their work

  5. Hey, no high horse here. After all, we made "Grownups 2."

  6. for as historical a piece like JttWest is, it makes you wonder if they'll ever be a version of the story that does the original justice and gets international acclaim at least critically.

    1. It is interesting that Asian movies were extremely successful this year in Asia, but they flopped around the world. Even Keannu's 47 RONIN is currently flopping big time :(

  8. Think I'm going to pass on this one. It's just not my kind of comedy I suppose.

  9. I didn't expect a hilarious one. Quite imaginative..a big change from the serious martial arts film I've seen this year- Man of Tai Chi with Keanu in it which was really good.
