If you thought the weirdly engaging poster we posted a while back was beyond silly, take a peek at the “Treasure Hunt” trailers embedded below. The movie certainly looked action-packed, though it doesn’t seem to take itself too seriously. Given the history of Wong Jing’s productions, I’m going to assume that it’s painfully low on substance. Then again, with a name like “Treasure Hunt”, you shouldn’t expect award-winning cinema. You’ve been warned.
The plot synopsis is hanging out right here:
Peggy (Cecilia Cheung), the renowned charming director in the advertising industry, was married with a 3 years old son Lucas (Lucas Tse). She was persuaded by her boss to shoot an advertisement on a deserted island with the so-called “The Strongest Man in the Galaxy” kung fu master Mr. Big (Ronald Cheng), a notorious womanizer and his daughter Cissy (Lin Miao Ke). Andy (Ekin Cheng), Peggy’s husband, failed to dissuade his wife to back out of the job, left home in a temper with Lucas. Peggy had no choice but to depart for the island. At the pier where the filming crew took a boat to the island, Mr. Big had a row with Cobra (Liu Hua) and his 4 fellow ruffians over a new fishing boat. Cobra’s gang got a treasure map and planned to search for a huge treasure hidden on the island during the Ming Dynasty. To avoid further publicity, Cobra backed off, but planned to get rid of the crew on the island.
“Treasure Hunt”, which stars Cecilia Cheung, Lucas Cheung, and Ronald Cheng, opens in China on August 19th, 2011. The aforementioned clips await your attention.
