New Trailer for The Forbidden Kingdom
Unfortunately I'm not going to encourage anyone to watch this. Back in mid-November we ran a leaked trailer that showed lots of the kung fu that will be featured in The Forbidden Kingdom. That trailer looked epic and incredible and yet whenever I read the synopsis, I got worried. Today a real American trailer was released and now all my fears have been realized. This seems way too cheesy and way too much of a "fantasy adventure" than a kung fu epic. With that, you certainly can watch this new trailer below, but I'd suggest you stick with the old one.
Watch the trailer for The Forbidden Kingdom:
The Forbidden Kingdom was written by John Fusco (Young Guns, Hidalgo) and directed by Rob Minkoff, of Disney's The Lion King, Stuart Little, and The Haunted Mansion. Wait, what, a Disney director doing a kung fu epic?! The film arrives in theaters from Lionsgate next April 18th, 2008. The newest poster is featured below.
