The Monkey King 2, a sequel to the 2014 box office hit stars Aaron Kwok, Gong Li, Feng Shaofeng and Xiaoshenyang and will see the return of Director Cheang Pou-soi.
The Monkey King 2 will be shot in 3D and will be released in February 2016, in time for Chinese New year. The movie has a budget of Hk$530 million, but without Donnie Yen in the lead role will the movie be as successful as the first outing? time will tell.

Since rocketing to worldwide fame after starring in the highly-acclaimed “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” Zhang Ziyi has steadily filled her portfolio not only with multi-awarded acting roles–the most memorable perhaps being Mei (“House of Flying Daggers”) and Sakamoto Chiyo (“Memoirs of a Geisha”)–but also some magnificent producer credits.
Zhang’s first produced film, “Sophie’s Revenge,” may have gotten mixed reviews from critics but went on to bag a handful of awards, including Best New Director from China Film Media Awards and Next Generation Director Awards, Best Supporting Actress from China Hua Ding Film Awards, and Most Popular Actress from China Student Film Awards for Zhang herself.
This year, Zhang Ziyi continues to explore the cinematic field as a producer with the movie “The Baby from Universe.”

5 Awesome End Fight Scenes – Part 4
13 April 2015 3:01 AM, PDT
What we lack more and more these days are epic fight scenes in the final part of kung Fu/Martial Art movies. We have seen less and less one on one fight scenes in the final battle over the past 15-20 years, which is a shame but we have seen recently a few flicks bringing that winning formula back.
I want to name a few of my favorite end fight scenes and please feel free to comment below, your favorite fight scenes and maybe they will be added to the future features. I only add fight scenes which i can find the clips for on youtube, so some classics might not be added to the lists.
