New Trailer For Donnie Yen's THE MONKEY KING Ruled By Special Effects
(Updated with a high-definition trailer)

With the upcoming release of Donnie Yen's The Monkey King in Chinese cinemas at the end of the month, a new trailer has arrived, which shows a lot more of the film's action and special effects. 

The Monkey King is directed by Soi Cheang (Accident, Motorway) and has an all-star cast including Yen, Chow Yun Fat and Aaron Kwok. It is based on the same source material as Stephen Chow's Chinese Odyssey and Journey To The West

With Chow's Journey To The West becoming the highest grossing film at China's box office in 2013, it will be very interesting to see how Yen's version performs.

Check out the trailer below and see what you think!

Huge Competition for Monkey King 3D starring Donnie Yen, 4 other huge Chinese productions releasing on the same date, and in Robocop and Hobbit releasing 1 week after.. Monkey King 3D will be a great film, but its box office will be badly affected by hollywood blockbusters.

Looks insane.

Looking forward to this

Look's like good fun, I thought Stephen Chow's Journey to the West (if it can even be called that) movie was pretty poor, this one looks more what I want out of a Sun WuKung movie. Guessing I'll never have a chance to see it screened in the UK though which is a shame.

are you joking, right? The latest Stephen Chow's movie is amazing...

For me I loved all of Journey to the west series and movies. and this new Monkey King coming this January 31st even more spectacular in it own right. All the new special effects glorify the dramatic scenery of the storyline even more. Looking forward to a new year full of interesting new films.

The visuals remind me of the live-action "Casshern" and "Goemon." Hopefully this film rocks, especially since "Special ID" was kind of weak (aside from Yen and the action).

What was amazing about it? Lots of unfunny jokes with a story that barely goes anywhere (let alone 'to the west').

The Death of CGI. Absolutely unintelligible pixel mess. Lots of colors and turbulent particle effects, but where is the direction or a character with emotion? Story?

The Chinese title already tells you what the story is about, unless you are unaware of Journey to the West orginal story
