Watch Man-Bears On The Hunt In New Clip For Lu Chuan's CHRONICLES OF THE GHOSTLY TRIBE
It was reported earlier that director Lu Chuan (City of Life and Death) was venturing into Hollywood-esque effects with his next project and we expected him to deliver something visually spectacular. 

Well, it seems this is certainly the case as shown in a clip for his sci-fi adventure film entitled Chronicles of the Ghostly Tribe.

Featuring some giant ferocious creatures going on a tear, the creatures were created by Korean VFX house Dexter Studios, the team behind Mr. Go.  The cast includes Mark Chao, Yao Chen, Rhydian Vaughan, Li Chen, Tiffany Tang, Guangjie Li, and Daniel Feng.
In 1979, a young soldier is working in China's snowcapped mountains when an explosion reveals bizarre fossils hidden deep in the mountain caverns. What they discover next will change his life and human history forever.

You'll find the clip and the first two trailers (English subs included) embedded below. 

Chronicles Of The Ghostly Tribe opens theatrically in China on September 30th.

I watch Lu Chuan anything, hope was given a lot of freedom.

This is the same Lu Chuan we all lauded for his restraint and subtlety, right?
Not slamming this, by the way, despite some iffy cgi-shots in these clips this looks like truckloads of fun to me!

Not saying this will be a bad film, but this is an adaptation of a popular novel and the start of a projected four-part franchise (technically eight parts, but a different studio has the rights to the other four—Wu'ershan's Ghouls is due out in December and will be the first film in their series). There's no way he isn't being kept on a tight leash here. I'm curious to see how Lu adjusts to this sort of material, but honestly I'm way more curious to see his planned live-action adaptation of Black Cat Detective (no, really).

I will watch something fun from him, too bad China is still such a pussy about content that challenges their government orthodoxy.

I'm still trying to figure out why "City of Life and Death" didn't receive more attention outside of Asia.

Lu Chuan is both an artist and a rebel. I think after "Nanjing! Nanjing!" we can see how he is smart enough to push the boundaries of the censors. This film could be a mainstream breakthrough for him
