Derek Kwok and Stephen Chow’s “Journey to the West” (also called “Odyssey”) is destined to wreck Hong Kong theaters next month on Chinese New Year, and it’s anybody’s guess when it’ll finally cross the ocean to our part of the world. I’m guessing late 2013, or if we’re really lucky, mid-Summer, but that’s a bit overly optimistic with these imports.
Until the film does manage to find its way Stateside, though, check out a new English-subtitled trailer for the film, which is, yes, just as wacky as you thought it would be given that this is a Stephen Chow movie. Well, partially a Stephen Chow movie, anyway, though I expect he had the more dominant input into the film than his comrade Derek Kwok.
Starring Huang Bo, Shu Qi, Wen Zhang, Show Luo, and Chrissie Chau. You’ll notice the absence of Chow’s name in the starring credits. He produces, writes, and co-directs, but doesn’t star in this one.
