Filmko's first all 3D fantasy in China, DON QUIXOTE, will open in October. The Donnie Yen Chi Tan 3D MONKEY KING will also cost 400 million RMB to make. Its Beijing company even stated that it will never make another 3D movie as a sign of confidence in 3D films.
Filmko not only imported equipment and 3D production teams from Germany but also hired ALICE IN WONDERLAND special effect team with 50,000 yuan RMB daily to shoot Don Quixote's windmill duel. The special effect team adjusted the color on each grain of sand and drew a "sand demon" world by hand. MONKEY which will start production on October 8 had a Hollywood team to work from actor costumes, production to post production special effects. The company said that it wanted to make a authentic 3D brand in Asia, thus the company will never make 2D films again.
