After a 4-year hiatus since his last major film, CJ 7 <長江七號>, Stephen Chow (周星馳) fans can rejoice the release of Journey to the West <西遊降魔篇>, premiering just in time to ring in the Lunar New Year in 2013.

While the production of Journey to the West this past year has been extremely secretive and kept under wraps, audiences were delightfully treated to a 60-second trailer featuring Shu Qi (舒淇) and Bo Wong (黃渤) in eccentric costumes while fans were anxious to find out what character the comedy king himself would be portraying.

Stephen, always very particular about his films, has carefully conceptualized the film to great detail – whether it be the script, special effects and selection of characters. The trailer revealed that the film will center around the monkey king in the usual Stephen Chow comedic fashion, bringing audiences a fresh approach at the classic Journey to the West story line and cinematography.

With the quirky script and over-the-top costumes, fans can be assured that they will be able to enjoy the laughs that Stephen has brought to the big screen in his past movies such as A Chinese Odyssey <大話西遊>, King of Comedy <喜劇之王> and Kung Fu <功夫>in addition to the touching and emotional story line that always tugs at a few heartstrings.

There is no doubt that Journey to the West will be one of the most highly anticipated films of 2013.

      • Little fishy says:

        Yea, the budda hand is wrong Dx this hand is just fat, budda hand meant to have long finger, and a really define major lines run thru the palm >__>

      • RAYLEILAFAN says:

        That CGI is what worries me too. It looks below par. I assume the budget went to other things?

    2. sky says:

      look corny…

    3. alexislim says:

      speak in mandrin?what a turn off!!!!

    4. Funn Lim says:

      I thought he is not in the movie??

    5. lantern says:

      old fashion

    6. shu says:

      the founder of mo lee tou is back!

    7. Jack says:

      Is he going to be playing a supporting character in this movie?

    8. EkinFan says:

      looks terrible! some subpar cgi mess. Pandora’s box will always be the best.

      • Funn Lim says:

        But I trust Stephen to restrain himself in the CGI thing. Maybe the trailer is a mess but hopefully the movie is better. I mean HK produces more mess than good ones so if he did reasonably well, should be ok.

        Am still wondering if he will guest star, star or just direct?

    9. RAYLEILAFAN says:

      Stephen Chow should come back onscreen with his mo lei tou antics just like the 90′s. I missed that side of him.

    10. WC says:

      This movie looks like a bust, just like CJ7.

    11. RaySimpson says:

      Didn’t he produce DragonBall Z Evolution?

    12. Terminator says:

      A typical a$$hole of a film from no talent Steven Chow.

    13. Kidd says:

      I see that the title is written in simplified chinese.

      Looking at the trend now, traditional chinese will be phase on in HK sooner or later. :(

      Now, only country using trad chinese will be Taiwan.

      • sky168 says:

        I think it’s written in simplified Chinese because it’s a mainland Teaser.

        I believe the HK version will definitely be in traditional Chinese! Trust me! ; )
