The Mermaid

What the heck is this? The full official trailer for Stephen Chow's wacky new film has arrived online. After bringing us Kung Fu Hustle and CJ7, Stephen Chow's latest work is about a genetically engineered mermaid program run by a madman, called The Mermaid. While there are no English subtitles on this, the footage more than speaks for itself and it's not that appealing, I have to admit. It seems to be some kind of mix of Human Centipede (or Tusk) and Pirates of the Caribbean, but set in the real world. I don't really know. The cast includes Kris Wu, Chao Deng, Show Luo & Ke Bai. Give this trailer a look below if you're curious.

Here's the first official trailer for Stephen Chow's The Mermaid, found on YouTube (via Twitch):

Stephen Chow's The Mermaid

Hin's real estate project involves reclamation of the sea. This threatens the livelihood of the residents who rely on the sea to make a living. Shan is dispatched to stop Hin and this encounter soon leads to them falling for each other. Out of his love for Shan, Hin plans to stop the reclamation. Unfortunately, Shan gets injured in an accident and vanishes into the sea. The Mermaid is the latest film written & directed by Hong Kong filmmaker Stephen Chow, of the films Shaolin Soccer, Kung Fu Hustle, CJ7, and Journey to the West previously. The film opens in Asian countries starting February 2016, but doesn't have US date yet.

    Huh. I'm a huge Stephen Chow fan, but this seems to be lacking his usual playful charm. I respect him as a filmmaker so I may try to catch this at some point, but it doesn't really look that interesting to me.
  • I'm crying. This is probably the best movie trailer I have ever watched. So beautiful...

    Since he released 3 trailers so far, I feel like he is giving us a taste of all the different aspects this film will bring. Stephen's movies usually do have a darker side. It's just whether or not he chooses to highlight it like he did with this trailer. He could have easily made a really dark trailer for Kung Fu Hustle as it had a lot of drama moments. I'm looking forward to seeing what story he would like to tell. :0)
  • That was dope, and weird, and dope.
