New Trailer for Donnie Yen’s Monkey King is Absolutely Insane

Check out a new trailer for Pou-Soi Cheang’s bonkers looking “The Monkey King”, which stars Donnie Yen as the titular monkey man and Chow Yun Fat as his nemesis, the Jade Emperor of Heaven. The trailer is chock full of crazy CGI battles and flying around the clouds and nutso fighting. It reminds me of the good old days of Hong Kong action cinema, back when characters would fly around the screen shooting lasers out of their hands at each other. No, really. There were movies like that, and they weren’t sci-fi, either.

Oh, and monkeys rule!

Second trailer for the action/fantasy film THE MONKEY KING (大鬧天宮) directed by Cheang Pou-soi and starring Donnie Yen. The film is based on selected chapters of Wu Cheng’en’s classical novel Journey to the West and will tell the story of how the Monkey King rebels against the Jade Emperor of Heaven.

Starring Donnie Yen, Yun-Fat Chow, Aaron Kwok, Joe Chen, Kelly Chen, Gigi Leung, and Zilin Zhang.

Look for it later this year.

  • Kienerman

    that’s amazing can’t wait to see this it’s been a long long wait!

  • No One In Particular

    It looks pretty cheap and overdone with CGI. Action may be good but the dude looks like a Planet of the Apes cast off. Should have been made a little more grounded. Go check out Ninja II Shadow of a Tear. Badass!
