The Stephen Chow Sing Chi directed JOURNEY TO THE WEST will be released in the Lunar New Year. Although he did not perform, viewers still look forward to whether Sing Yeh will be able to start another trend after 4 years without a new film and win back the Hong Kong box office championship. Yesterday the film released a 60 second trailer that featured three leads Shu Qi, Wen Zhang and Huang Bo. Sing Yeh pointed out that this time the special effects could rival Hollywood's, thus in the trailer fish demons, pig demons and monkey demons appeared. Among the three leads, Huang Bo's costume was the most exaggerated, Shu Qi's martial art performance had special effect additions. In the trailer Sun Wukong appeared for a second and looked rather slim, resembling neither Sing Yen nor Show Luo (Law Chi Cheung). Who will be Sun Wukong?
The film dialogue extended Sing Yeh's usual comedy style, for example Zhang Wen asked Shu Qi, "Miss do you need help?" Shu Qi very seriously answered, "Yes, get lost." in the usual Sing Yeh style Mo Le Tau humor.
