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.

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Koan Hui's League of Gods, found on Vimeo (via Deadline):

League of Gods Poster

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. Anyone interested in seeing this?

    I'm a big big fan of Fan Bingbing

    Looks like they're trying to bring back Skeletor riding that huge panther.
  • I'm not a fan of Wuxia genre, but this looks 1000 times better than Gods of Egypt. That's not a feat I know. Even the Last airbender can beat Gods of Egypt.

      Now you're just being an ass.
    I was like, "Where's Jet?" Oh...
  • shiboleth
    That was scary on so many levels. I even think I noticed some misogyny in the whole thing. And my dear Chinese communists, what's that rubbish with Gods? Didn't you overcome that, huh..?
  • I'd probably watch this if it was on.
  • Adreth Stark
    A lot of the effects were corny and/or just plain weird, but that panther actually looked pretty badass.
  • CyraNOSE
    I didn't know Panthor had a cameo in this!
  • redtie
    That dancing baby finally got a job!
  • Vallar Morghulis
    It seems watchable, tho.
