Just In Time For Chinese New Year
(Los Angeles, CA) – Enter the mystical world of Chinese legend when the unforgettable adventure THE MONKEY KING: HAVOC IN HEAVEN’S PALACE arrives on Digital HD February 2 from Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM). Nominated for two Hong King Film Awards and only the third Chinese film to earn more than a billion Chinese yuan at the country’s box office, the high-flying action film is available on Digital HD in time for Chinese New Year and the start of “The Year Of The Monkey.”
Renowned martial artist Donnie Yen (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Kung Fu Killer, Blade II) stars as Sun Wukong, “The Monkey King,” in the fantastical tale of the beloved character’s legendary origin. Taken from the early chapters of Journey to the West, the Ming Dynasty literary classic, it also stars Chow Yun-fat (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon) and Aaron Kwok (The Storm Riders) who deliver action-packed performances in this beautifully captured myth directed by Pou-Soi Cheang (Motorway).
A divine monkey born out of a heavenly crystal, the irascible Wukong has magical powers but is sorely lacking in judgment. Under the tutelage of a wise master, the “King of the Monkeys” develops amazing skills but creates havoc wherever he goes. His quest for immortality takes him to heaven, where he is tricked into becoming a tool for evil in the eternal battle between gods and demons. He prevails in spectacular battles, learns great lessons, but pays a heavy price in the process.
THE MONKEY KING: HAVOC IN HEAVEN’S PALACE is the first installment in a trilogy of live action films based on Journey to the West produced by filmmaker Michael Wehrhahn and Global Star Productions. Beneath the colorful metaphysical drama lies a classic folk legend of the mischievous underdog who uses great abilities recklessly, and must ultimately seek redemption. THE MONKEY KING: HAVOC IN HEAVEN’S PALACE captures the drama, beauty, humor and fantastic action of the folk legend and brings it to the screen in a way never before possible.
