Making plans for this Chinese New Year? Apart from spending time with family and visiting relatives and friends, why not catch a movie to usher in the Lunar New Year?
One of the films we’re itching to watch is The Monkey King 2. The movie will be released in 30 countries in early February, according to Yibada. In Singapore, The Monkey King 2 will open on 5 February.
The star-studded cast includes Aaron Kwok as Monkey King (Sun Wukong), Gong Li as skeleton demon (baigujing) and the dashing Feng Shaofeng as Tripitaka (Tang San Zhang). The epic fantasy is inspired by the classic story of ‘Journey To the West’.
The Monkey King 2 costs RMB450 million to produce and is shot in 15 studios. Judging from the awesome trailer, the film looks truly promising. Everything from the special effects, amazing costumes to the beautifully choreographed moves took our breath away. Hopefully the coming year of the Monkey will bring lots of luck for the film and its fans!
