Check This Out: Kung Fu Dunk

First we had Shaolin Soccer and kung fu ping pong, and now we finally have Kung Fu Dunk! It was almost inevitable that they'd eventually make a basketball kung fu movie. Those Taiwanese are pretty crafty and have fashioned what looks like it could be a fun movie. Thanks to Twitch we have the first trailer that, although is only in Chinese, is a fun as hell to watch. Check it out, let us know what you think, and maybe with enough motivation, it'll make its way across the pond!

Watch the trailer for Kung Fu Dunk:

Kung Fu Dunk is directed by Yen-ping Chu and adapted from a comic by Takehiko Inoue. The film opens in Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, and China on February 7th, 2008 with no current plans for a US release. A teaser poster for the film is featured below.

Kung fu Dunk 🙂 Basket ball + Chines Kung Fu = beautiful movements but without mind When I was child I was thinking : when the time will come when people will stop having ideas ... Here we are ...when the mind of people begin to stop and made such a movie .... Chines people playing basket ball is normal but flying 10 meters horizontally with 3 meters verticaly to make a gaol in basket ball floor ? that is out of art .... it is just a mistake No matter how good they make the CGI it will still funny movie for children

No, not another Jay Chow movie, he is a singer not an actor.

I hope #6 is being sarcastic. Worst movie of '08, period. Jay Chou is a great singer, but it's too bad he sucks as an actor. These movies are pretty much the Chinese version of Date Movie, Epic Movie, etc. ZzZz...

To the author Alex Billington and readers , "Shaolin Soccer" is made by Stephen Chow from HongKong. Stephen is known for his slapstick comedies. That film may not be all great, but many of his earlier films were classic and very popular. This film Kung Fu Dunk is made by Taiwanese (at least most of the actors are, im not sure of the rest of the cast). The cast is entirely different from "Shaolin Soccer" so please not lump them together. Lumping them together is the same as saying Americans, British, French are one and the same. Hong Kong, Taiwan, China are different geographically, and even thought their people share the same root, they do have some difference in their culture.
