Final LEAGUE OF GODS Trailer Offers Big Scale Visuals And More Childlike Antics!

Big scale fantasy epics from China have been and still continue to be a challenge from time to time. Every once in a while though, you get break throughs, and director Koan Hui's latest, League Of Gods, looks like it'll be one of them.

Admittedly, the first teaser a few months ago didn't leave much room to be enthused, but the trailers since then have all looked mostly fantastic, save for a few rough spots. And sure, action star Jet Li may well serve minimally as the Asian equivalent here of Gandalf, you still get a film that's pretty ambitious that looks the part for a potential summer blockbuster.

SYNOPSIS:
An imaginary time zone parallel to the Shang Dynasty, 1000 BC: The kingdom is in trouble. The autocratic King Zhou (Tony Leung Ka Fai 梁家辉), entranced by his favourite concubine Daji (Fan Bingbing 范冰冰) who is a vixen spirit in disguise, oppresses the people and banishes all opposition. A band of rebellious warriors from the Ji clan unites allied forces to overthrow the tyrant. Amongst them is Ji Lei (Jacky Heung 向佐), an orphan of the Wing Tribe who was rescued as a child by the powerful Wizard Jiang (Jet Li 李连杰) on the fateful day of his Wing initiation into adulthood, when his parents were massacred by King Zhou. Haunted by his loss, Ji Lei is sent by the Wizard on a mission to seek the Sword of Light that will awaken the courage to spread his hidden wings and help restore balance to the world.
