The Stephen Chow Sing Chi and Tsui Hark created, Kris Wu Yifan, Lin Gengxin, Yao Chen, Jelly Lin Yun, Bao Beier, Bateer, Yang Yiwei, Dapeng, Wang Likun, Wang Duo, Zhang Meie starred film JOURNEY TO THE WEST: THE DEMONS STRIKE BACK will open on the Lunar New Year's Day, January 28th, next year. The film yesterday released its latest trailer. In the trailer, the quartet of master and disciples fought with and cheered up each other. The Wu Yifan played Tang Monk and the Lin Gengxin played Sun Wukong even slept right next to each other. Tang Monk even took advantage from behind as he kissed Sun Wukong's golden head band and ambiguously said, "Hold me tight, don't leave. Did you mss me." The Bateer played Sand Monk fan the flamed, urged Wukong not to hold back and just kill Tang Monk! The Yang Yiwei played Piggy reminded them. "Don't forget Master still has the Buddha's Palm." Sun Wukong stated that he wanted to break Tang Monk's arm. Tang Monk overheard everything when he passed by and whipped Sun Wukong out of rage.
Sun Wukong in the trailer appeared for the first time in special effect monkey make up. He seemed to be extremely upset with Tang Monk and on the verge of exploding. In the previous trailer, Sing Yeh and Tsui Hark "fought" over the film's special effects. At the end of this trailer, Sing Yeh and Tsui Hark again made a surprise appearance. Sing Yeh ran to Tsui Hark's office and excitedly said, "This monkey's special effect, it's......great! I really appreciate it, I cannot be any prouder!" Tsui Hark replied, "That one was a real monkey, since it's not special effect it has......no special effect. I have said it so many times! What? Do you have something to say?" Sing Yeh immediately "collapsed" and said that he was "a little dizzy". Tsui Hark kept comforting Sing Yeh, "If you are dizzy just go out and rest, don't drink so much, don't going out so much, don't go to bed so late, don't mess around all the time, be more mature, don't just stand there, go to rest go to rest!" Sing Yeh stood outside the office with his head in his hands, helpless.
The "face off" posters that were released with the trailer were also very interesting. Sing Yeh and Tsui Hark were transformed into martial art masters in the ring. Sing Yeh's Tai Chi pose was extremely similar to his in KUNG FU HUSTLE. Tsui Hark's pose also looked like Wong Fei Hung's. The super deformed master and disciple quartet gave them massages and cheered them on.
