The Donnie Yen Chi Tan, Aaron Kwok Fu Sing and Chow Yun Fat starred film THE MONKEY KING (SAI YAU GEI ji DAI LAU TIN GUNG) was released in the Mainland during the Spring Festival this year and topped the slot with 1.053 billion RMB. Filmko has been planning the sequel; yesterday at the Cannes Film Festival THE MONKEY KING 2 (SAI YAU GEI ji SUN WUKONG THRICE BEATS WHITE BONE DEMONESS)'s first English concept poster was unveiled. Filmko revealed that the film will start production in October and has been slated for a 2016 Year of the Monkey release.
THE MONKEY KING 2's English concept poster was a William Chang Suk Ping design. The background was heavy color and the poster focused on the golden band on Sun Wukong's head, as white smoke came out of Sun Wukong's head. The poster did not have the star's name. Who will play Sun Wukong? Filmko did not reveal that and for now it will be a mystery.
