KUNG FU JUNGLE Gets A Third Trailer!
If the goal was to keep the anticipation going for actor Donnie Yen‘s upcoming martial arts thriller, Kung Fu Jungle, then needless to say, the team over at Emperor Motion Pictures is faring pretty well in that department…almost to the point where it’s annoying as all heck. Kinda makes you wish you were a Londoner yourself, eh? Yes, I feel your pain, which is more than I can say for the lucky attendees at the 58th Annual BFI London Film Festival kicking off this weekend, and open to a flurry of some pretty cool titles and star-studded appearances, including Yen and co-star Michelle Bai.
Hahou (Donnie Yen) is a former martial arts instructor, imprisoned after accidentally slaying an opponent. When vicious killer Fung (Wang Baoqiang) starts targeting the reigning kung fu masters, Hahou offers to help the police catch him in return for his freedom. Despite her misgivings, the police inspector (Charlie Young) arranges his release, but when Hahou disappears she suspects him of conspiring with the killer. The shrewd Hahou has deduced the killer’s objective and realises that he will himself become Fung’s target, putting all those around him at risk. He refuses to be drawn into a fight with Fung, however when the killer threatens the woman he loves (Michelle Bai), Hahou ultimately realises that he will have to go against the martial code in order to uphold it.
