A giant crocodile attacks Beijing in a new movie, you say? Yes, please. Although I’m not entirely sure what the title to Lin Lisheng’s creature feature is referring to, as long as a few people get savaged by an enormous crocodile with a very bad attitude, I honestly couldn’t care less. Call it “Crocodile Holiday in Beijing” if you must — give me a monster and I’ll be there with bells on. Okay, maybe not bells, but definitely something that will draw your attention.
Check out this synopsis, courtesy of 24 Frames per Second:
Xiao (10) befriends Amao, a 36 foot crocodile, who lives on his fathers croc sanctuary. Soon his father is forced to sell the crocodiles to a gangster who plans to use them for high priced meals. Before Amao is slaughtered, he escapes slaying his captors in the process. In the chaos, Amao accidentally swallows a cellphone with the location of 1 million dollars. When the rumors of this spread, the locals are split in two: some afraid for their lives, others set out to capture and kill the crocodile at any cost.
“Million Dollar Crocodile”, which stars Barbie Hsu and Guo Tao, opened in Chinese theaters on June 8th, 2012. Given the popularity of monster movies in America, I’m sure this one will find its way Stateside in the near future. While we’re waiting for that to happen, have a look at the latest trailer. As always, it’s been embedded below.
