Donnie Yen Reveals First Trailer For The Monkey King

Donnie Yen has posted the first trailer for The Monkey King on his official Facebook page.

You can check it out below but it is just a teaser and it doesn't even show the leading man.

Fortunately Donnie posted a photo of himself (seen above) in full make-up with the caption "Five hours makeup per day, one of the toughest role ever took on!"

The movie is directed by Soi Cheang who previously helmed the contemporary thriller Accident starring Louis Koo and Richie Ren, and most recently the high speed action movie Motorway with Shawn Yue and Anthony Wong.

Joining Donnie in the cast of The Monkey King are Chow Yun-Fat, Fan Siu-Wong who sparred with Donnie in the Ip Man films, and Aaron Kwok.

According to the IMDB, the film will open in China and Hong Kong in November 2013.

Here in the UK, action fans will be able to see Donnie on the big screen when Dragon comes to cinemas from Metrodome in the early part of 2013.
