The days and weeks since launching our Five-A-Day countdown have proven fruitful a time or several with various bits of teaser and trailer footage emerging for some titles arriving next year. Thus, expect to hear more ahead of Angga D. Sasongko’s latest, Wiro Sableng, taken from the pages of the long celebrated action adventure novel saga from author Bastian Tito whose son, actor Vino G. Bastian, now stakes his claim in the title role.
The story itself is set in the 16th century and centured on an axe-wielding hero of legend who accrues a number of skills on his adventures. Plot details are unclear as to which areas of the novels are the film’s focus, although the kind folks at Lifelike Pictures and 20th Century Fox have finally begun making their case with an impressive first look teaser sampling Bastian in full heroic form with a taste of the action from Jackie Chan stunt veteran, action director Chan Man Ching and co-star/fight choreographer Yayan Ruhian.
Rounding out the cast are Sherina Munaf, Marsha Timothy, Lukman Sardi, Rifnu Wikana, Dwi Sasono, Marcella Zalianty, Marcell Siahaan, Happy Salma, Yayan Ruhian, Ruth Marini, Fariz Alfarazi, Yayu Unru and action fan favorite Cecep Arief Rahman with Dian Sidik, Yusuf Mahardika, and Aghniny Haque also starring.
Take a look below and keep Wiro Sableng on your radar for the new year!
