A new year is in tow for visually hefty Chinese cinema, and Bodyguards And Assassins and Kung Fu Killer helmer Teddy Chan is making his entry on New Years Day with the long-awaited epic, Double World. The film was previously dated for late November.
Based on the popular pre-existing MMORPG, the film stars Henry Lau in a story that offsets an adventure for a young villager who partakes in a warlord’s competition to reveal the best warriors. If the newest trailer now online is any indication, then the contest looks especially to be something epic and explosive. Monsters and swordmen amuck!
Double World also stars Mark Cheng, Peter Ho, Him Law, Lin Chen Han and Jiang Luxia, and is produced by Soi Cheang (The Monkey King 1 & 2). Peep the trailer above and be mindful…it gets a bit gory at the start.
