MONK COMES DOWN THE MOUNTAIN And Kicks Ass In A New International Trailer!

A North American release date remains pending for director Chen Kaige's latest offering, Monk Comes Down The Mountain. In the meantime, with trailers running about, Sony Pictures Australia unveiled its latest trailer several days ago for its own release on July 2, and while earlier trailers have shown more of the film's comedic tone, this one certainly engages the martial arts spectacle and fantasy much more.

In the film, when a young monk is forced to leave his impoverished monastery, he relies on his extraordinary martial arts skills to survive in the outside world. In search of a mentor, he crosses paths with a Kung Fu master who is in possession of the Book of Secrets, which reveals the lost art of the deadly Ape Strike Kung Fu technique. The rare book is coveted by a sinister father and son who will go to any extremes to obtain it. The monk finds himself immersed in a deadly battle to protect both the book and his master. 
The footage here certainly does lead actor Wang Baoqiang justice along with Aaron Kwok and Chen Chang among others getting in on the high-flying fight action choreographed by Ku Huan-Chiu (Journey To The West, Monster Hunt). Plus, international appeal is key here, especially with Sony Pictures representing the film globally, so this trailer is a job well done.
The film is also releasing the same weekend in China in IMAX and IMAX 3D. Watch the trailer below and stay tuned for more info!
