Jet Li & Fan Bingbing in Chinese Action Fantasy 'League of Gods' Trailer
"When crisis comes, heroes will rise." This looks so crazy. An official trailer has debuted online for an action fantasy film from China called League of Gods, being described as the "Chinese X-Men", and it's totally insane. The cast includes some big names including Fan Bingbing, Louis Koo, Tony Ka Fai Leung and Jet Li. This trailer has some wacky stuff in it - a baby with (farting) super powers, some kind of weird plant, a crazy CGI snake thing, surfing on shields, a guy with wings who can shoot lightning from his hands, and so much more. At least the action looks like it might be cool. The rest of it - I don't know. You must watch this.
Based on the 16th-century Chinese novel Feng Shen Yan Yi (The Investiture of the Gods), the story tells of how King Zhou of Shang becomes a tyrant due to the wiles of Daji, a vixen spirit who is disguised as one of his concubines. League of Gods, originally titled Feng Shen Bang, is directed by Chinese filmmaker Koan Hui, a veteran visual effects supervisor and assistant director making his feature directing debut with this film. League of Gods is just opened in China this summer and will be released in the US this summer as well. Asia Releasing will open the film in US theaters starting July 29th.
