Ask almost anyone in my circles and they’ll tell you how supportive I usually am for remakes and reboots if done right. Obviously not all remakes have worked in cinema history and it’s all but added to the stigma that permeates around current remakes either completed or already in the making.
According to Jackie Chan France after sifting through mixed reports, the actor and action star is moving forward with director Stanley Tong once again for their latest pairing, Vanguard. The report forwarded the photo you see just above with Chan joined by the JC Stunt Team, along with young comedian Yang Yang, and Chan’s co-star for Tong’s KungFu Yoga, actress Miya Muqi.
It’s been four years since the release of Law Wing-Cheong’s Hong Kong action classic revival, Iceman 3D. Despite its intentions and even eventually splitting the film in two due to being too long, the film ultimately grew dismal with critics – indeed, a clear sign that Donnie Yen‘s starpower and a bloated budget wouldn’t be enough next to it’s own lackluster application.

Yes, I know, I’m being repetitive. Sorry not sorry.
Merely hours after the most recent promotional pictures and posters were shared for the forthcoming release of director Teddy Chen‘s new martial arts thriller, Kung Fu Jungle, I would be foolish not to share another slate of promo materials that have now gone viral. The content includes a brand new featurette, and some new pics, and you can check those out right now, as well as the latest trailer just in case you’ve been living under a rock.
The film is slated for its premiere at the 58th annual BFI London Film Festival on October 12 before opening two and a half weeks later in Hong Kong and China. The film stars Donnie Yen, Wang Baoqiang and Charlie Yeung.
Ahead of its forthcoming premiere at the 58th annual BFI London Film Festival, Emperor Motion Pictures is maintaining its momentum with the latest unveiling of official promotional pictures for director Teddy Chen‘s newest thriller, Kung Fu Jungle. Their efforts come just off the heels of a fresh new trailer that went viral last week for the new film starring action star Donnie Yen among a line-up of cinematic heavy-hitters, including Fan Siu-Wong and Shi Yanneng (Ip Man) to name a few. They are joined by Yen’s Iceman co-star Wang Baoqiang in a story setting up the ultimate kung fu battle between an a convicted killer looking for redemption, and a serial killer targeting the city’s martial arts masters.
The teaser and trailer so far hint a film jam-packed with mystery and psychological suspense, hybridized with blistering kung fu action. With any luck, the film will deliver ten-fold what these trailers are promising and fans can recover from any previous woes.
The film is due in Hong Kong and China on October 30 and 31, and James Marsh over at Twitchfilm has forwarded a fresh batch of pics and two new posters to feast your eyes on. Take a look at them below, in addition to the brand new official synopsis:
A vicious killer Feng (Wang Bao-qiang) is going round Hong Kong killing top martial arts exponents, leaving a secret weapon called the Moonshadow as his calling card. When convicted killer and kung fu expert, Xia (Donnie Yen), hears of this, he offers to help the police catch the killer, in return for his freedom.
Despite their misgivings, the police release the former police martial arts instructor into their custody. With his help, they realize from the chronological order of the victims that the killer is targeting his victims, all the top masters in their martial arts style, following a martial code of training.
When Xia also disappears after a close encounter with Feng, they suspect the worse: that the two are accomplices and Feng was the bait to help spring Xia from jail. But Xia has actually gone back to his home in Foshan to find out more about the mysterious calling card. While doing so, he discovers the killer’s identity and his motivation: the true philosophy behind martial arts was to kill opponents who were weaker than him.
Steadfastly, Xia refuses to be drawn into a fight with Feng – until the killer threatens the women he loves most. Only then does he realize that he would have to go against the martial code in order to uphold it.
