Although I was not very impressed by the international trailer for Stephen Chow’s hit science fiction comedy “CJ7”, the strangely effective family-friendly feature turned out to be one of my absolute favorite films from 2008. The film — a quaint, inoffensive tale about a little boy and his extraterrestrial canine companion — has a way of worming its way into your heart, where it gently tugs at the emotional strings nestled within. Not surprisingly, Chow is producing the upcoming animated sequel “CJ7 2”, a film that continues the adventures of this unlikely trio of friends. Currently, the film is scheduled to hit theaters in mainland China on July 6th. Unfortunately, the rest of us are doomed to wait patiently for the flick to arrive on DVD later this year.
