Check out this new trailer for a great looking martial arts drama called Shaolin, which was directed by Benny Chan (New Police Story, Robin-B-Hood). It stars Andy Lau, Nicholas Tse, Fan Bingbing and of course Jackie Chan.
I wish I could do some of this stuff for real, I've always enjoyed martial arts films, but I'm really heavily involved with the genre right now. I'm watching a ton of martial arts films that I haven't seen yet, and I'm enjoying the hell out of it. I wish many of these films would go mainstream because there's no doubt they would blow audiences away. I can't wait to see this new flick.
Here's the synopsis for the film:
As feuding warlords fight to expand their power, the noble monks of the Shaolin Temple clean up the mess left behind, tending to the injured while trying their best to protect the poor and weak. General Hou (Andy Lau, WARLORDS, HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS) has caused much of this mess with his violent and ruthless tactics that rarely discriminate between soldiers and civilians. When Hao is betrayed by fellow general Cao Man (Nicholas Tse, THE PROMISE, SHAOLIN SOCCER), he is forced into hiding, and takes refuge with the monks (including Jackie Chan) at their hidden mountain temple. As the days pass, he finds himself more and more at ease as he learns the ways of peace, and begins to release his hatred through Martial Zen. But Cao is not far behind, and war soon reaches the temple, where the monks are ready to fight back- with their unstoppable Shaolin Kung Fu.
The movie is set to be released on September 9th 2011, check out the trailer for the film below and tell us what you think?
