After a 4 years break, Stephen Chow is ready to release the Journey to the West, premiere planned on the Lunar New Year in 2013.
Stephen, always very particular about his films, has carefully conceptualized the film to great detail – whether it be the script, special effects and selection of characters.
While the production of Journey to the West this past year has been extremely secretive and kept under wraps, audiences were delightfully treated to a 60-second trailer featuring Shu Qi and Bo Wong in eccentric costumes. The trailer revealed that the film will center around the monkey king in the usual Stephen Chow comedic fashion, bringing audiences a fresh approach at the classic Journey to the West story line and cinematography.
With the quirky script and over-the-top costumes, fans can be assured that they will be able to enjoy the laughs that Stephen has brought to the big screen in his past movies such as A Chinese Odyssey, King of Comedy and Kung Fu in addition to the touching and emotional story line that always tugs at a few heartstrings.
Stephen Chow’s Journey to the West is a nutty version of one of the four great classical novels of Chinese literature.
There is no doubt that Journey to the West will be one of the most highly anticipated films of 2013.
