The Sorcerer and the White Snake Trailer

"Spectacular!" How about a couple of crazy funky CGI snakes and some badass Jet Li martial arts action to end the week? Magnolia Pictures has debuted the a US release trailer for The Sorcerer and the White Snake, an action-adventure drama starring Jet Li as a sorcerer who discovers the identity of a thousand-year-old White Snake disguised as a woman. Whoa, what? Yea this looks insane in so many different ways. While you may assume the CGI will look bad (and it does a few times), this otherwise looks like quite a fun movie. Cast includes Shengyi Huang, Eva Huan, Charlene Choi, Raymond Lam. Must see to believe.

Here's the official US trailer for Siu-Tung Ching's The Sorcerer and the White Snake, via Apple:

Action director Ching Siu-Tung (Duel to the Death, The Swordsman I-III, Naked Weapon, An Empress and the Warriors) helms this fantasy film based on an old Chinese legend about an herbalist who falls in love with a thousand-year-old White Snake disguised as a woman. Jet Li stars as a sorcerer who discovers her true identity and battles to save the man's soul. The Sorcerer and the White Snake already premiered in China and most of Asia back in September this year. Magnolia Pictures is releasing Sorcerer and the White Snake in theaters starting February 8th, 2013, after a VOD/iTunes release on January 3rd. Anyone in?

Well, here's hoping the substance and plot will match the visuals and action. More 'Crouching Tiger...', less 'Tekken'.

looks like fun eye candy. might lack proper nutrition of narrative substance but could still be a sweet ride

Straight away, before even watching this, I thought of 'A Chinese Ghost Story' from 1987, so I searched out the trailer and found it had been remade already last year. That, along with 'Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires' were my strange introduction to 'horror kungfu' via Jonathan Ross's Incredibly Strange Film Show. The original movie is great. It's based on Chinese folklore so isn't actually that crazy a plot considering.

I love jet li and this looks so good to me, especially considering similar movies that just poorly execute the visuals of the supernatural. I'm all for eye candy

Being a Jet Li fan and Chinese I will attest that I have already seen this movie a while back and it is not good.
