Watch: Awesome Trailer for 'Shaolin' Starring Andy Lau & Jackie Chan
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.
