Journey to the West Trailer

"A quest to vanquish evil from this Earth will lead the world's greatest demon hunters to their ultimate challenge." Magnolia has debuted the official US trailer for Stephen Chow's latest movie Journey to the West, based on the classic Chinese story. This is the new film from the crazy mind behind Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle telling an old Chinese story but it still looks wacky. There's mythical beasts, mythical vehicles, flying weapons galore, a Monkey King, goofy CG-enhanced violence and an Earth-sized colorful Buddha doing who knows what. The story follows a Buddhist trying to protect a village from three demons. The cast includes Qi Shu, Zhang Wen, Bo Huang and Lo Show, but not Stephen Chow. Check this out!

Here's the full US trailer for Stephen Chow's Journey to the West, in high def on Apple:

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. Journey to the West is directed by Stephen Chow (King of Comedy, Shaolin Soccer, Kung Fu Hustle & CJ7), co-directed by Chi-kin Kwok. The story is based on the classic tale from Chinese literature. After being first released in China earlier this year, Magnolia Pictures will finally release Journey to the West in select US theaters and on VOD starting March 7th early in 2014. Curious?
