Benny Chan's Shaolin Trailer

Protect the Temple! Well Go USA & Variance Films have debuted the official US trailer for Shaolin, a kung fu action drama from director Benny Chan (New Police Story, Robin-B-Hood) starring quite a kick ass cast: Andy Lau, Nicholas Tse, Fan Bingbing and even Jackie Chan. The rather expansive story follows a ruthless General Hou (Lau) who must take shelter at a Shaolin temple, then begins to learn their ways, but of course the past inevitably always catches up. I honestly hadn't heard of this before, but it kicks ass and I really want to see it! Just looks like an awesome film with some great action, I need to see it! Check this out.

Watch the official US trailer for Benny Chan's Shaolin, also available in HD over on Apple:

In a land torn by strife, the righteous Shaolin monks stand as a beacon of hope for the oppressed masses.

Shaolin, originally known as Xin Shao Lin Si in Mandarin, is directed by Hong Kong filmmaker Benny Chan, of films like Big Bullet, Jackie Chan's Who Am I?, Gen-X Cops, New Police Story, Divergence, Robin-B-Hood and City Under Siege previously. The screenplay was written by Chi Kwong Cheung, Zhang Tan & Alan Yuen. This was already released in Hong Kong in January this year, but Well Go USA & Variance Films will be releasing it in the US in limited theaters starting September 9th this fall.

        It's already out on dvd from various asian entertainment companies. I've had this for four months now, it's pretty good, not great,but good...everyone talks about Jackie Chan in this, but watch for Wu Jing, he's the man!

    Looks better than iron monkey (which i liked).  I could get lost in this for a couple hrs.  This is what I was hoping the 'Forbidden Kingdom' would have been.
